did you miss the first couple of pages filled with users complaining about driver anomalies? Just because you don't have them doesn't mean they don't exist. Don't let your brand loyalty downplay what is a serious issue for many others.

here is the question:

has there been anybody here on OCN that can personally say that after installing 320.18 their card fried?

no links to other sources, no "i have a friend" stories but first hand testimony?

Point granted... that's like going to the BBB to find positive reviews of local eateries thumb.gif . It's a site specifically for people to put their complaints and get support.... what do people expect will happen?

I noticed some weird behavior with my GTX 780 but I'm not sure if its driver issue or game issue.

I'm not taking any chance until further notice.

You'd think drivers labeled as stable release are stable.

Then again, Nividia wasn't the only one that accidentally released a buggy patch. Anyone remember the McAfee patch that resulted in a system file being deleted, and thus bricking thousands of computers?

(And also Simcity Socities' patches. 429 MB worth of them, and all they did was apply insect repellant to roach infestation, before EA called it quits and drove the wreaked franchise off the cliff with the Simcity 2013.)

The author DID admit to sensationalism right here.

If I had said "320.18 WHQL Display Drivers are causing Artifacts", it just wouldn't get as much attention. Just a part of writing that we as a smaller site have to do for now.

If you have nothing to contribute, then it is kindly requested that you don't participate in this discussion.

AMD has been a punching bag for years now. There's a lot of people who have had some less than nice things said to them because of their hardware choice.

However, I very much dislike how Nvidia has been doing this GPU turbo thing, because it depends so much on how the chip is binned. And to top it off, they've made it so you can't disable turbo and see exactly what effect turbo has on their GPUs.

And now it appears that they broke GPU turbo in their drivers, and because they're so anal about locking things down arbitrarily, you can't disable the drivers from messing with your voltage and clock speeds. And coincidentally a driver mistake means if your card is the low end of the binning spectrum for your model, you're going to have a bad time.

When I whine about proprietary software and companies locking things down, this is exactly what I'm complaining about. If a company locks something down to the point where you can't change it (in this case, disable turbo on your 700 series) and they break the thing you can't turn off, you basically just have to sit there and take it.

I mean, really, it's looking like these drivers are killing cards because the drivers are messing with voltages and clockspeeds when it shouldn't be. If anything this may end up being a testament to how broken Nvidia turbo is. Unlike everyone else, Nvidia felt it to be a wise idea to base turbo clockspeeds on things like temps instead of power draw or whatever. And then, they basically decided that this algorithm will be in control of two variables (voltage and clockspeed) that can actually physically destroy a graphics card.

At the very least, the Nvidia guys should be demanding for the option to disable GPU turbo. Whatever Nvidia has done with it to gain that little extra performance has gone too far and it's clearly killing some of the weaker ASICs.

Why don't you just read all the posts on this thread?

This morning I started getting artifacting in Tomb Raider. After reading this article I reverted to be safe. Haven't had any issues yet, but I went eight hours on 320.18 without having errors, so I don't know if that was the cause.

i have and there aren't any; the only sources that has been cited are linked either directly or indirectly to the same source. and from that source, the nvidia forum, there has been two laptops and one 560ti and one 570 that has been reported to fail after an installation of the 320.18 drivers. there were not any specs given or under what conditions when it happened. since i have a gtx 570 that has been known to fail but hasn't had any adverse effects, i think it is not out of the norm for me to ask for first hand information.

so instead of being curious as to how or why this would concern you, i'll just thank you for your suggestion.
