What the hell is going on in Nvidia's driver department? - Page 2

post #11 of 51
I'm running SLI on the same drivers, had a few issues not related to the driver and this is what corrected it.

Clean driver install and ditched EVGA Precision for AfterBurner. SLI went from almost nothing in game to full utilization.
As for the crashes, try running the cards stock. If crashes stop, then it's a bad OC. If not then it's bad driver install, GPU needs more voltage, or PSU issue.

But go and buy AMD. You'll be back.

No problems here.. then again, I'm not running a SLI configuration tongue.gif

I don't think I'll ever get a dual card or dual GPU setup, too many bad stories I've read that I don't want to deal with

Both camps have been guilty in the past and will in the future - hence one card one monitor thumb.gif

PS - i just would hate the bezels or any line redface.gif

Everyone isn't equal when it comes to building and troubleshooting their PCs. Frustration of not knowing what to do spills over to blaming the company.
I spent two hours yesterday isolating my SLI issue, and it came down to EVGA Precision and the Beta drivers being the issue.

I'm on 314.14 and haven't had display driver issues since I bought my 670s (back in September).

Honestly, you'd probably have a line of people willing to trade you 7970s for 670s... Nvidia vs AMD isn't even close at this stage in the game.

What games are you finding unstable?

+1, Having no issue with 314.07. Been there with AMD during the 12.11 beta days, clean uninstalling AMD drivers was a lot more work, TR's Frame latency article & a bad clocking Gigabyte 7950 irked me enough to come back to green.

I've used every driver they have put out since 2009 and have never had a problem, guess some people are just unlucky.

I agree, never had a dual GPU config but after all I've read the performance increase isn't worth the hassle. Still thinking about selling my 7950 and getting a 670 XD

I agree that drivers haven't been up to snuff for some time now. I've found 314.07 to be one of the more stable drivers in the past few months though. Currently running 314.14 but I've experienced BL2 crashing with some weird error so I think I'll roll back to 07.
