It doesn't make much sense otherwise. It could be dying. That's how my last card started to go - coincidentally, after 2.5 years of the same OC - it started crashing applications and I had to keep lowering clocks till... well, the end.

What's this non-sense about 400+ drivers only being for RTX cards? Previous generations all the way back to the 600 series still benefit from game ready drivers.

Panzerfury I had one crash in Apex with this driver. Using a 2080.
The game froze and closed. I couldn't see any errors. I have an eventviewer report, which i most likely can't find now, since it was days ago.

Overall it seems as stable or more than 417. Atleast for me.

I haven't played any other games yet, but I think i will try witcher 3 and shadow of the tomb raider later.

Except for a couple for a couple of CTD issues a while back, I’ve had no problems with nv drivers. I update day-one and using GFE.

I don’t do multimonitor or multi gpu and I generally don’t play unoptimized and buggy games at launch so I’ve avoided issues involving those.

The last time I had majorly annoying driver issues was with ATi cards but I hear that AMD era Radeon are much better in the driver department these days.

Haha yes, I loved every driver release roulette when I had my R9 295X2.
