OK i took some time to check all options in the new interface of GForce Experience.

There are some improvements. You can open the overlay with Alt+Z, then the options for recording and sharing appear.
It is still possible to adjust the shadowplay to 10 min, like i did. It only works from within the game.

This has some benefits, in case you forgot to switch on Shadowplay before the game started.

It is just something to get used to i suppose.

But the control Lords strike again. Now they can see exactly what you play, when you play and with who you play 24/7. It just gives you the creeps.
As Nvidia is not hindered by Steam, Uplay, Origin or whatever. All others are limited to the games in their portfolio, but Nvidia has everything.
Just imagine the amount of data and different types of research they can do with that. Does it make Zuckerberg look like a choir boy? Not really, but it surely rubbs off. :twocents-02cents:

It runs fine here as well. Must be specific GFX and configs that had issues. Still sloppy.

But i will install the new drivers anyway. :party:
Geforce Experience will follow soon®

OK, here we go again :shock:

Do NOT update to the latest WHQL drivers 375.86. You may start to wonder how on earth these got certified. But they are. And this driver update downclocks memory on PASCAL cards..... :angry-banghead:

I really think Nvidia needs a new procedure on driver testing before release. These massive cock ups are now giving them a bad rep.

I now have to roll back to the previous drivers on 2 PC's. :angry-tappingfoot:

Nvidia really don't like their customer base as they keep giving them incentive to jump to Radeon.

So they better step up their quality control of these damn drivers and lay off some of the goons who keep messing up.

I'm just glad i was to lazy to update the driver, but i do i want a hotfix driver, i don't think so.

It appears that Nvidia's driver team is so incompetent, that they are unable to release a proper working driver without having to release a hotfix a few days later. And these hot fixes do not even fix everything.

I have reverted to an older Hot Fix driver for now. :roll:

That one works.

All the latest "optimized" drivers cause artifacts with lighting effects in Skyrim.
I had to revert to 378.57 to get rid of it.
