Windows 7: Latest NVIDIA ForceWare Video Drivers Windows 7

these later drivers suck... im still on 344.48 cause the later ones introduce a whole lot of stuttering, frame time issues, and offer horrible overclock ability. on the latest driver, i was lucky to hit 1241MHz at 1.24V, on my current driver, im able to hit 1320MHz on 1.24V...

So, if anyone is having issues i would suggest reverting to 344.48 driver version.

I'm running great with the new drivers.

I've got two Gigabyte GTX 970 G1 Gaming Editions in SLI and my all day overclock is 1540mhz core and 7722mhz memory. Only weird thing is the master card hits 1.243V on core and the 2nd or slave card hits 1.206V. Anyone have any idea about that? They both are OC same but have a .04V difference. They are brothers as in their serial numbers are one apart, as in they came off the line one after the other. You think I should send the master back and try to get another one like the slave? I bet I could hit insane OC's if it's able to hit that at only 1.206. But anyways....yeah great drivers. I hit around 100+ fps on any game on ultra with everything turned up. Having a 144hz monitor makes that great...Vsync/Gsync is unnecessary. Anyways, have fun guys...and don't forget to hit the benchmark threads!

Hmm Shawn I have the Asus ROG laptop with a GTX 860M in it and I cannot download any drivers at all but all my other machines - no problem. I think it may be due to the GPU not being "seen"??

Hey John,

Do you mean that you can't install them, or can't download them?

If you can't download them, then you could download them on another computer, and copy them over to the laptop to install.

Can download mate just will not install them. I have had a real problem with this laptop being 8 originally they installed 7 as an option but I had to update the BIOS to even load 7 drivers - (a very long story) - did that and the drivers load but not the NVidia one.

The GPU is listed as being in the machine but the system does not "see" it when trying to install the drivers so I am running Intel HD graphics. Someone did mention a while ago and I am no expert but the NVidia does not kick in until one does some heavy gaming - but if that is true then if the driver is not installed how would that happen??

Anyway see pic for what happens when I try installing it goes fro a bit then this message.

Thanks Bill well I'll try jumping some hoops then as although the Intel graphics are not really terrible it is annoying to know the GTX is sitting there doing nothing
