TimeSpy - Nvidia Driver Nerf?

I just ran a timespy bench on exact same settings as I used back in September last year and my score turned out worse by a couple hundred points, the GPU core clock was even slightly lower previously?

Would this be a timespy software change or should i put on my tin foil hat and say that Nvidia is delib nerfing the older 10 series cards now to force people to buy 20 series?

I havn't changed any of my cooling setup or anything.

Results: https://www.3dmark.com/compare/spy/6095718/spy/4460113

Just thought it was interesting and keen to see what others think

Cheers.

I felt the same way, some of the drivers offer reduced perf in some instances so I always keep DDU ready to go and I test each new driver and then reinstall the old one if perf is down. i use 8K 4K 1080p extreme superpositions as well as firestrike extreme and timespy extreme.

i have gotten a 300 point difference between runs in the same session, so looking at different drivers and clock speeds, it is nothing out of the ordinary.

srly, go cruise over to the benchmark thread, people spend days looking for the best driver. its gaming that counts for most.

E:
albeit a slight core/vram differences but same driver

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

My feelings are that everybody chooses different hardware and such, so there are going to be conflicts every now and again with consistency across builds relating to efficiency and stability. The driver that works best for my build might make your build get 300-600 points less or make different games freeze. In conclusion I say it's worth it for some to put in the time, and not for others.
