    Can anyone confirm if this driver set really does improve performance in PUBG over 384.94?

    Not that I'm complaining about my current performance, but hey, extra frames are extra frames....

    Just not at the expense of stability.

    (I tried doing my own research via Reddit, but my God.... Those people are clueless trolls)

    Gave me an extra 15-20%~ fps in PUBG. No stability issues so far.

    Figured I'd go ahead and post back to confirm a noticeable performance improvement in PUBG.

    Also, this set appears stable.

    I'm bumping this thread again because apparently this driver does have an issue.

    It only occurs when streaming HBO Go and it's completely random.

    On occasion, I'll start a show and this'll be my screen:

    It has something to do with HDCP and flash....

    The only way to get out of it is to blindly move your mouse cursor to the top right corner and aim for the "X" button.

    Alt-tab does nothing, neither does CTRL-ALT-Del.

    Based on my limited googling, it appears to only happen in Chrome (I use Opera, so basically same thing)

    Not the end of the world obviously but I definitely freaked out the first time it happened lol

    I'm not sure, but I'm either having issues with this driver or my card is not good. I'm getting random program has stopped working CTDs and I've been previously using 1080 Xtreme Gaming before switching to FTW2. The last driver I used on Xtreme was from 384 branch and never had a driver issue with that card, but with FTW2 on 385.41 (and I didn't play much on ftw2 with previous drivers to verify) I have these crashes in BF1 and Dying light at least that I've been playing recently. I could blame afterburner as well, but had no issues within the last year when I got Xtreme at launch. I'm running ftw2 stock btw. Will roll back to 384.94 to see if it will get better.
