Got a new rig to show off or just want help with the latest Tech, if it’s for PC this is the place.

EDIT: It is WHQL but not showing in the Gforce experience..... :angry-tappingfoot:
Okay that's strange, i downloaded and installed it through Geforce Experience, but i'm rolling but the 368.81 as that works best for Pascal.

A decrease of performance indeed. I realy do not understand Nvidia. New drivers should be better performing than the previous ones.

Weird 10% increase in the Physics score. Maybe W10 Anniversary related?

Indeed, 368.81 seems to be the best driver at the moment, plus Nvidia is having latency issues with Pascal cards, so Nvidia better step it up soon.

I got a better score with the new driver on the Titan

This test was done with basic clocks and only a custom fan profile. That is my current gaming profile and it keeps at around 1.800Mhz and does not heat up over 77 degrees under load.

Just did a test with Shadowplay on and off.
3% difference in performance with the same settings.
I don't really think you will notice this in games. But the performance hit is larger than i expected.

Well that 3% increase could just be the 13 mhz more clock speed.

btw. i have heard that this driver has broken the sleepmode, but i don't know if it is true. But i'm not about to find out as i don't want to update my driver, as i then would need to uninstall it again when it turns out to crap like always.

The new Forza Horizon optimized drivers did show some slight improvements on the Graphics scores. Unfortunately i could not run Firestrike, only Time Spy :roll:

3D Mk cant seem to read system info. Might be related. W10 really is a big mess. :teasing-nutkick:

EDIT: you need to run file integrity check in Steam. Afterwards it will download System Check again.

Latest Nvidia drivers 373.06 bring a little performance boost. Max clock of the GFX was a little higher due to colder room temps, but overall the test did run at similar clock speeds as previous.

On Firestrike it was the previous high OC GFX that has the edge. But i did not change any settings today or before, lol :lol:

Heard on forums that the new driver is cheap so won't even try it.
