    I wonder if this fixes the graphical glitches and G-Sync stuttering I saw in 385.xx and 387.xx drivers under FCU...but I am afraid to uninstall 382.90 because there are no graphical glitches with this one and GSync is working properly....as for now I think I will follow a simple rule: "If its not broken, don't fix it".

    @Prema @Papusan @Mr. Fox

    Here's a bug I noticed in this driver and the previous one, when I installed it, I noticed that it didn't install the Vulkan Runtime Libraries which are necessary for some games that use the Vulkan API such as Doom for example.

    After installing the driver, go to the nVIDIA Folder that was extracted, then into the Display.Driver folder and run VulkanRT-Installer.exe manually from there to install the Vulkran Runtime Libraries.

    Why? Because classical nVIDIA Swiss Cheese :rolleyes:

    Why every driver release nowadays isn't compatible with AW laptops ? I know I will mod the inf file for my upgraded GPU anyway, but still when you read something like this on the driver release notes it gives me the creeps (-.-)
