    I haven't seen any DPC issues yet on the latest driver, I think I'll just hang tight and wait for the next proper release.

    @Papusan @Mr. Fox

    I know sometimes companies release a buggy program or driver and they may release a quick fix. Fine. But how come nVIDIA has been releasing a driver followed by a Hotfix driver for the past 4 years?? This is pathetic and shows that they have no quality control.

    I guess it's easy to get away with these jokes when you have no competition.

    They're probably just sadistic people that get their jollies watching the gamerkids work up a lather jumping from one driver to the next based on a silly notion that a new one is going to somehow magically yield a meaningful performance boost over the last new one.

    It is really complicated, but here are the steps. Be sure to write them down.
    1. If your system is working well and has no issues, stop here. If not, move to step 2.
    2. Find a good driver that works well and is stable.
    3. Use that driver.
    4. Stop looking for new drivers.

    That's a good tactic aside from the game optimizations and security fixes.

    The cure is often worse than the disease. Especially so when the cure is primarily designed to be leveraged as a lame excuse for a cash grab.
