  • A small number of Windows 10 Anniversary Edition systems may experience install issues with secure boot enabled.
Known Issues

Thank you sir! Just got No Mans Sky today. Performance isnt terrible. Actually, its pretty good. But Id really like to have the latest drivers for this game; especially if they purposely made the support for it.

However, here is something that I have never had the answer to and maybe you or someone else knows. In order to use a Hotfix, do I need the latest WHQL drivers to just install the hotfix? In other words, is the Hotfix a full driver version? I had to roll back to 16.6.1. And im wondering if I can uninstall that totally and then just install this latest hotfix. Would I be missing something crucial? Last time I compared a Hotfix to a WHQL latest driver it seemd that the hotfix was a smaller file (ie only had the fixes and wast full driver)

no, they are full drivers.

They just call minor updates hotfixes...

Thanks. Oddly enough even though it says this fix added support for No Mans Sky it seems to be running much worse on these drivers. Before I was getting microstuttering maybe every 20 mins or so. FPS was averaging around 75-80. This new driver has it microstuttering constantly, fps is way down, and maybe Im crazy but it also looks much orse. And its forcing my cards to downclock. Have to keep clockblocker running and its still getting away with cutting it back 10-15% of the clocks. I think Im reverting back to the old drivers. Not sure how new drivers with support for a specific game are making it worse. Its just weird
