Anyone know what is going on with Nvidia driver team at the moment.

Nvidia driver team smoking in a basement somewhere?

364.96....not even beta..."hotfix" installs older vulkan... fixes few of the major problems with 364.72...which itself fixed no issues with previous killer driver 364.47

364.91....installs latest vulkan

So basically since 3rd March Nvidia driver support has failed to deliver decent drivers and well over a month later there are no signs of a decent driver coming.Just signs of desperate attempts to stay abreast of latest marketing

Hey guys !

I saw this hotfix too says it's for Doom open beta, normally they release a driver for new games not a hotfix, so yeah what's up with NVidia.

Don't know...it's weird...

Seems they have introduced some deep rooted problems and either can't find what or can't solve it easily.

The release of these drivers lately without support for Titan Z was a bit suss...like they had to get something out there to keep up with new games and VR rubbish while they worked on a real driver. But the beta testing as WHQL seems to have backfired heavily with loads of dead cards reported and loads of problems generally.

First time I have had system breaking problems with a driver. Have had to clean install twice now...whatever the latest drivers do they leave scars...clean install of driver is not enough to get rid of effects.

Will only trust a driver branch they release with a lot of specific fixes and Titan Z support....

I'm not running sli anymore but 364.72 has been working ok for me, I know you and Menthol were saying the lest two drivers from NVidia didn't work with sli.

I wonder if they're having trouble implementing pascal with maxwell, you would think they would have it done though.

Have you tried the hotfix to see if it fixed the sli problem? I haven't installed it yet myself, contemplating.....

No, I haven't and I'm not touching a driver until it is WHQL with a list of definite fixes and a normal driver thread on their website...

The trouble was not SLI per se but enabling SLI with CSM disabled in BIOS...and subsequent BSODs that were so hard they corrupted OS for me outright
