weird. You would think they would push a new studio driver if they found something that broke C4D.

Does this fix the Chrome hardware acceleration bug where it displays either a black Chrome window or artifacts on window elements?

The last Studio driver didn't have this problem, but the latest Game drivers before this one did.

Still no performance optimization when using freestyle sharpen? What a shame, great feature, but I won’t trade any sharpening with 5-10 fps loss.

Last two previous Drivers would take around half an hour installing if i had any GeForce drivers previously installed. If it was a clean install with DDU then Driver would install in less than 5 minutes. Kinda weird.
