[MC] Nvidia 320.18 WHQL Display Driver is Damaging GPUs - Page 26

Sounds like some random coincidences and nvidia hate propaganda to me.

Who knows!?

One does not simply bring a dead GPU back to life, or fix no-signal bugs and LSD rendering with denials...

The link on the first post showed 2-3 users/cards total being affected. What kind of evidence or statistic is that? I'm not saying there can't be reason to suspect there is something wrong with the drivers, but everyone here as far as I know haven't had any issues what so ever.

How do we know their cards didn't just happen to coincidentally malfunction and they had nothing to blame other than the drivers they recently installed?

I'm just saying there's no real proof of anything other than a few guys having issues with their cards. The guy who made that link is quite obviously an AMD end user. "lol, Glad i’m using AMD right now, I know I would have updated."

There's clearly an issue if the other 25 pages are mentioning issues on the drivers, and if there's a news article which isn't "HURR AMD STRONG" like this one then it's clear that it's concerning to nVidia users, not just a chance for AMD users to single out a driver release and laugh at the odd damaged card.

If it were an article stating the same thing about ATI drivers and the only evidence was two or three guys I would say the same exact thing.

There's no conclusive evidence and I haven't read a single person in this thread who has stated these drivers has caused harm or random instability issues. Most people are saying they haven't had any issues.

The only concern here is whether or not there is enough evidence to support that this is more than just a coincidence.

Have you actually gone through this thread? i can point out many people on this thread who experienced difficulties with their cards.

Had some GPU usage problems with GW2 and BF3 so I downgraded.

I've gone through at least 6 pages, and from what I saw all of them say they have no issues. I looked through more after your reply and saw one guy said he *thinks* his 660 died but isn't sure if it was the drivers that caused it.

The title of the thread and the link just seems like some hate propaganda to me mostly because there doesn't seem to be conclusive evidence, but hey, maybe I'm just being a fan boy.

I mostly use nvidia cards but i don't defend them when they are clearly messing up, same with intel and asrock. i don't know why anyone have to defend them, unless they are stock holders, lol

Then I guess it's a real issue. I personally haven't had any issues with it and most of the replies I've read in this thread have been saying the same. I apologize for assuming otherwise that most people were not having issues.
