I have several watch dogs on 1060s and they do come in stock at a reasonable price but until this gets fixed for good I am not inclined to give NV a cent.

At the very first i thought it was my eyes fault because i may have got used to 144hz, therefore, watching 24/30fps videos would make that sense of laggy. But comparing youtube vs file on computer, even the same video, it shows different results. And since i have some high DPC interrupts, it must be from that then.
If it goes away when you switch to a different GPU or even not use NV drivers with NV GPU then yeah it's the NV driver issue

Just watched ~20 minutes of a movie in 1080p with no issue. Played ARK for a while @ 1440p Ultra Settings and no lag, tearing, stutter or anything. Waited for weather change and nothing, everything ran completely smooth. When i run LatencyMon, ALL of the stats go crazy and says my computer is having an issue. I have no experience with LatencyMon at all but whatever it is telling me is wrong, it is absolutely nothing I notice. I kept MSI Afterburner monitor up while the movie was playing and while gaming and saw absolutely no spikes or drops in anything, it was actually very consistent no matter what i did. Not sure if it matters too but also watched a bunch of videos on youtube, even some ping pong ones to see if i could notice anything in between shots or the trail of the ball tearing or whatever (idk) and noticed nothing but smooth transition all around.
*EDIT AFTER HOTFIX*
So I also installed the Hotfix patch just like F-Zero did above and everything normalized. But again, did not notice anything to begin with.
That's the thing not every system is affected to the point of stutter and not everyone also is fast enough to notice stutter and other issues. If everyone was then NV would have come up with a fix years ago.

Can someone prove or disprove this?
Unstable clock can/does cause microstutter but it should be so low you won't notice if it can even be measured on the output end. Unless the changes are too big affecting performance too much.

card, and has to get that straight. It's like getting a smartphone where its shoots 4K videos at 1000fps, but drops the call after every 30 seconds.
but it can only playback 240p@10fps.
No they are talking about specific driver level optimizations for a single game.
