    I think I'll skip this driver. There seems to be high DPC latency issue still unresolved.

    May have to test this, kinda hard to tell since it only happened once.

    [G-SYNC]: G-SYNC may still be active after closing a game, causing the desktop to stutter. []

    Using a 240Hz G-Sync panel.

    Then again this is post Spring patch:

    [G-SYNC]: Windowed G-Sync mode may stutter after upgrading to Windows 10 Spring Creators Update. [2097340]

    So here's something interesting. I used to always run the latest and greatest drivers from nVIDIA, believe it or not, after owning my GT75 for more than 2 months, I have yet to actually play a game on it. so today I had some free time and fired up Need For Speed Payback and started playing, I noticed that every minute or two, everything would become very stuttery like the FPS would drop down to 1 FPS then all of a sudden it would go back to buttery smooth. I thought it's a random glitch at first but then when it happened more frequently, I uninstalled the latest nVIDIA Driver v398.36 and installed the latest nVIDIA Driver from MSI's website which in this case was v391.48 and what do you know, the game was buttery smooth with 0 stuttering or glitches. So lesson learned, I will stay away from nVIDIA's crappy drivers and stick to the ones that MSI posts I guess they are tested by MSI that's why they are far behind in driver versions but at least they work.

    Yep I'm getting the same thing. I'm going back to the MSI suggested driver as well.
