Just did a custom clean install of these drivers, no issues so far, and it's the first time it didn't make my PC reboot for a custom clean install, so that was interesting.

I think, since the crashing issue has not been fixed yet, I will reinstall Rockstar in preparation for RDR2, and just not reinstall GTA V.

just installed and tested this driver on my gaming rig, was surprised to see better frame rates (Need for Speed) and my 2060 is running cooler!
