Just for the guys running GTX 780Ti's. There is a common misconception in regards to what is the best driver around. I have tested several of them and results are below. One website conducted tests and found 347.25 to be good as well as 347.88 which is rumored to be probably the best 780Ti driver around. These results prove otherwise I think. I believe the last driver 361.91 is the most consistent not only in benchmarks but gaming as well.

This is awesome. I have been wanting to do this for a long time as I witness my benchmark scores continually declining with each driver update.

I dont like your games nvidia.

ATM I would say yes due to the consistent results displayed by that driver, not only in the benchmarks but the games I played with that driver such as Crysis 3.

Thank you for the positive feedback. That is one of the reasons I did the tests myself. I saw similar things to you in terms of lower scores and FPS as the newer drivers came out.

I'd wonder how different this would be just for regular 780s (not much I'd think)?

I'm still on 361.43
With all the problems I'd been having since this past summer when I get an update that's not a hot mess....I stick with it.

I would look into 355.60, 359.00 & 361.91 if I was you. I don't think there is much difference in driver performance from a Ti to non Ti.

Thanks for info. Sad that Nvidia abandon Kepler. The 780 Ti once 10% better than 290X now according to my 3dmark graphics test 780 Ti ref = 290 ref.

That's why I am keeping 355.82 driver, because any higher or newer driver will cost -50 or -60MHz in my overclocking. I have tried it with 359, 361, 362 and 364. Tested with max OC without add volt.

361.9X and onward have worked OK for me, I do find there is quite the variance however depending on OS installed.

W7 i find deadly consistent in synthetics and fairly consistent in games, W8.1 i find isnt as consistent as w7 in synthetics but once you average a fair set of results you end up with a higher average. Gaming seems to be a little more consistent on average but there are engines/games that don't play nice

and my last outing with W10 (*i've been told its gotten much better, as i was using w10 in the first 2-3 month release period) results were horrendously random, multi monitor issues, driver pooping its self when it was stable on w7/w8.1.

like i said i've been told this has been fixed but in the systems tested upon closer look its still lagging behind w8.1 in most respects.

obviously only Dx11 implementations tested.

so far 362 has been overall pretty good, on 364.72 or 364.74 (can't remember) now and i don't have any complaints from any issues pre 361.XX
