    539MB hotfix, how nice. Someone needs to train Nvidia on how to issue a hotfix that only fixes the affected files, not just sloppily re-release everything in their driver package.

    Intel just released theirs- I don't have anything to install it on though. Laptop won't take it because laptop, and desktops all have GPUs.

    Their last drivers gave me the lockups, it takes forever to clean up nVidia's drivers to get a fully clean install. I'll pass on this one.

    Gotta be the driver size and install time that makes Nvidia so much faster than amd. All amd needs to do is make their drivers a solid 1GB and 45 minutes to install.

    Phew, I was beginning to worry, it had been over 2 hours since we had news of a new graphics driver.

    I had Overwatch crashing after the last drivers on my 1080-Ti, hopefully these fix the issue.

    Well they will fuck that up on the next release so dont get too comfortable. They keep pumping out drivers every few weeks and break as much shit as they fix and some issues go on for MONTHS without being fixed. Really is it that hard not to break shit that worked fine on the previous drivers and actually address issues that people have been complaining about?

    Unless you have been living under a rock then you would know that NVIDIA drivers have gotten shittier by the month for the last year or so.

    not realy, they are pretty crappy for a couple years now, "luckily" every now and then there is a more or less decent/stable driver among the bunch.

    Still haven't found a way to have my 2 monitor setup work without any flaws, might just have to get a 2nd 144hz g-sync monitor to fix that.

    It's actually 1.21GB - 539MB is the compressed size.

    But yes, nGreedias incompetence at modern driver making is very showing these days.

    Those days are gone man. FWIW, it's probably easier to have just one installer than multiple anyway as it reduces overall complexity of getting updates.

    This is an issue with both AMD and nvidia. Every game gets a profile. It adds up.
