    This driver is a bust because it prevents rainbow six siege from starting, something to do with my gpu not supporting dx11.

    EDIT: GPU-Z marks the driver signature for 397.31 as "BETA" and all of the checkboxes below the SLI field are unchecked.

    NVIDIA royally screwed the pooch on this!

    RS3 or RS4?

    DDU "Clean and shutdown". Instead, install my INF mod (nv_dispi.inf + nvcvi.inf), check "Clean install" option.

    Never seen ManuelGuzmanNV aka @pidge so active in any of the later Game Ready WHQL Display Driver Feedback threads as the latest one, LOOOL. Rather call it equal Classical Micro$h4ft Swiss Cheese.

    Maybe its just a placebo effect, but playing Rise of the Tomb Raider on highest possible settings (except texture quality which I left on High because Very high needs more than 6 Gb VRAM) with custom refresh rate 100 Hz G-Sync seems to be slightly smoother at lower framerates than with the previous driver.
    Windows animations on Windows desktop seems to be slightly smoother too.

    OS is the latest Windows 10 1803 with fresh install from USB (not updated from WIndows Update).

    I feel like I must be the only person that extremely rarely has any issues with nvidia drivers. I just do the express install all the time. Games seem to keep chugging along as usual. Sometimes bugs are fixed. Sometimes perf is better in some games. Every once in a while some bug makes it through but unless I'm playing that game I probably don't know. Things are never perfect, but they seem to do a good job given a monumentally difficult software and hardware engineering task.

    You are not the only one :D. Other than the occasional bug here and there, I never had a problem with either AMD or Nvidia drivers in the past 15 years. But that doesn't mean bugs don't exist, it is just that our usage scenarios may be a little bit limited.

    There are multiple versions of this driver?

    If the old installer was corrupted it wouldn't have run but it did and completed an install successfully.

    Sounds like the first file got corrupted for you for some reason because if this was widespread you bet the GeForce forums and Reddit would've exploded. :D
