    Dunno. My primary rig is out of commission at the moment.

    yeah it seems working. i dont have that nasty freez anymore but still have some micro lag on some games like wow windowed borderless. My opinion : it's working but need some improvement.

    Hi

    Massive improvement with the latest hotfix driver 387.98 . The issue is still slightly there as you can see in this video when I enter menus in-game, but overall it seems they found the a fix for this. Sorry messed upt the recording so no sound or fps :)

    Issue still not fixed. Using latest drivers with Alienware 17 R4 1080. Playing Divinity Original Sin 2 and The Evil Within 2. Both have major stutter with G-Sync enabled and none with it turned off on my external ultrawide. So disappointed.

    I think we shouldn't stop giving feedback of the drivers, since it's not yet working completely. This is a major step to the right direction, now we just need to keep making noise that they will make it better.

    I agree. Since this is a hot fix and not the official release they can still tweak it before they publish the final update.

    Post from Nvidia forums 42minutes ago.

    "Installed the update today win10 1709 , g-sync works perfectly on the latest nvidia drivers , no more drop fps to 1 , everything is fine"

    also 8 hours ago

    "Finally today's update fixed the external G-Sync stuttering I've been experiencing. Just wanted to post this so people know that it worked for me after several weeks of suffering.

    Alienware 17 R4 GTX 1080"

    EDIT: Downloading and testing now
