It took me around 1hr to download the 436MB update, normally that should take less than 3 minutes.

Would not work on my pc. I had to roll back to my previous driver to get my 970 sli's working again. Also it's not showing up in the GForce Experience app.

I have downloaded the new NVIDIA drivers, too, but looking at what GFE supposes as the optimum settings for my system (PC2 in my sig) I am wondering where those settings come from, as they would render my graphics a lot worse just to get a lot more than the needed 60 FPS.

Maybe those settings let to that some players got the feeling of very bad graphics as they are lowering the graphics a lot even on a decent system ?

Hi Guys
I'm struggling to get some decent frame rates in this game.
my computer specs are Rayzen 5 1600x @4 GHz 8Gb of DDR4 GTX 1080 8Gb Asus 27inch 144hz monitor running a resolution of 2560 x 1440 could someone share some Graphic setting with a similar system.
I have the latest drivers.
Thanks in advance

Please make a screenshot of your in-game settings and also state if you have changed anything in the nvidia panel. It might be a good idea to just start a new thread about this :P

In general you can keep everything to high but reduce environment map a bit and also see how shadows affect your performance, these are the most demanding settings that I have noticed. The rest have less impact, but they add up of course.

Its like everything is shaking, vibrating, bluring. What is wrong?

ironman
25-09-2017, 12:21
Hi,
I suggest those experiencing stuttering to cap framerate to 60 in nvidia profile inspector - off course for the PCars 2 one.... _(if you pc spec manages to keep well this framerate) IMHO every fps above 60 is unnecessary............

VonSchwerin
25-09-2017, 17:29
Its on 60.
the game opens in a window how can i change that?

lapje
25-09-2017, 17:41
I think this is a setting in the game itself. There you can choose between Window or Full Screen.

Hi I have played Project Cars @1080 60 fps with my original GTX 970 and when I upgraded to the 1080 I was able to get around 92 fps with the same settings it made a big difference especially running 144Hz monitor, so I disagree when you say ( every fps above 60 is unnecessary...........)

Try running it at 120 hz / fps if you can. Its night and day compared to 60. 60 is 'smooth-ish', but nothing compared to 100-144. I guess some people are stuck on 60hz displays and have no choice with vsync. Im running 100 fps @ 100 hz right now. Much faster response and input times, input lag is dramatically reduced. I run Assetto Corsa at 144hz / fps. Its hyper accurate.

Aldo Zampatti
29-09-2017, 17:02
I run at 100hz/100fps too, I can personally can't feel the difference between 100 and 144, but I know other's can tell the difference :)

But definitely 100 is better than 60 (for me)

I'm running PC2 at 2560 x 1440 @165HZ average of 95 to 100FPS with the setting i have posted on this thread, can't really see any difference between 144 and 165HZ but definitely can see a difference between 100 and 144HZ

"GForce experience optimization settings" is an oxymoron ;)

Bj McRebel
04-10-2017, 14:05
The only higher thing with 385.69 was power consumption, after a lot of tests I rolled back to the more stable 376.33, the -fpscap 63 eliminated all the stutters (with everything set to high).
Every driver after 376.33 is causing me problems with all the SW I use, like clock spikes, stutters, micro freezes and higher power/temps (+6°C).
(W7 Pro, I7-6700, Z170-K, GTX 1070 8GB, 120Gb SSD + Sam 960Evo + Raid 0, 16GBDDR4)

what i can say is that with previous driver i had "fragmentation" imgae when i move my head left and right. The fix shoul be for VIVE, but after upgrade drivers i haven't anymore this effect (and i have a Rift).

Can you check this for me? Driver version 387.92

Thanks

Adaptive v-sync seems to work fine with 387.92 here but performance is bad ...
Superposition with 387.92 is 9258 on 4k optimised and 385.69 is 9992 and feels alot smoother in pC2 although not really getting more FPS in pC2 but just feels smoother . The only thing so far i feel im missing not being on 387.92 is ShadowPlay !

do you see 60 fps lock in afterburner with adaptive activated (no vsync in game? mine goes over 60 all the time

Ok. 385 let me activate adaptive vsync

e270889o
22-10-2017, 00:38
Ok, I can confirm it.

Adaptive vsync in nvidia control panel doesn't override vsync OFF ingame.

With vsync OFF ingame and adaptive ON in ncp, fps are free, no cap

With vync ON ingame and adaptive ON in ncp, fps cap in 60fps. If I set ultra settings to force go under 60, fps lower to 40-45-50 fps, so seems to work.

With vsync ON ingame and adaptive OFF in ncp, if I force ultra settings, i get 30 fps, and jump to 60fps if stay still with the car.

Conclusion: Adaptive vsync in nvidia control panel doesn't override vsync OFF ingame

Yeah it was capped to 60 but was not a very smooth 60 at all. But i was still getting the same fps drops i was with my stress test with 385.69 so overall performance seems about the same but frametimes where not consiatant, i saw some high 20's where it is usually pretty locked at 16.6/7.

Same shit happened to me today!

But yesterday I also installed this Win Fall Creators Update, and today the new NVIDIA drivers.

Which one is the problem now?

I read reverting the driver should fix this problem, but I've done that. Reverted it to the 388.13. Should I install an even older one? o.O

I have delayed fcu update, so I can confirm Project Cars 2 runs fine with latest nvidia drivers (gtx1080 here ...).
My impression is quite smoother fps (I have it capped about 60 with g-sync on)

388.31 worked fine at first but then started slowing down after 30 minutes of play. It is easy to see this happening with main menu stuttering with Oculus CV1. Back to pre 388 drivers... :(

I've been using 385.69 for couple of months.

I noticed first problems with 388.13 and now with 388.31. I don't have long experience on 387.92, but at least they worked better than 388.x.

MrTulip
18-11-2017, 15:26
I installed Fall Creators update today just for the comparison (in case new drivers were optimized to be used with it).

It did not matter; the same thing happened with Oculus CV1. 388.31 were slower after running couple of laps, and approximately after 30 minutes of racing there was a noticeable moment where the framerate plummeted below 45 permanently. It did not recover from that. Again the main menu was ghosting and choppy when I moved my head.

Back to 385.69 and everything run without problems again.

Both drivers with their default settings, clean installs and only driver and PhysX installed.

If I try to launch PC2 with single screen option, the center screen flickers very fast and with the wrong colors. The other two screens are fine. When I try to mouse click the game on the center screen, the window minimizes and I go back to the desktop. If I restore the window, the game is still flickering very fast and with strange colors.

There are no problems with any other game.....

I updated my mobo bios, and reinstalled the latest drivers from invidia. No fix....

Anybody got any ideas on where to go from here?

There are issues with the newest NVIDIA drivers (388.31). In my case even with the one before the latest (388.13) caused the green flickering. I installed the 387.92. Works fine for me.

I cant stop stuttering, flashes, poor antialiasing, fps drops with 388.31 in PC2 this week. Was much better a week ago, but not on 388.13 (that driver is evil). Due to racing iRacing I need the 388.31. It works well there. I have everythng on low or off now, but my system is pretty stout and my CPU and GPU are super OC right now too. NO reason why I should suffer any problems right now. Even turned SS to 1.0.

I guess we wait for a new driver.

Windows Creator update is really messing with iRacing too. So if you go to an earlier driver, Win10 just updates it anyways, anytime.

It's extremely inconsistent with low level timing when the card is being pushed to the limit.

AC and iRacing aren't running a fully dynamic time of day, dynamic weather, Livetrack and their core tyre models have a fraction of the overhead our next gen dynamic model runs. We push all cores to the max and timing issues can arise from that if you're pushing your clocking to the limit.

In Display Driver Utility is an option to disable the Windows auto driver update IIRC. Moreover you can tell Windows to stay on an older driver via device manager. And you can force (like brutally force it; couldn't even install a display driver manually) the system to prevent the driver from being updated (google for Hardware ID gpedit.msc administrative templates; at least on Win 10 Pro)

What i would suggest, since you bought a souped up system, is to not overclock anything. Run balanced bios setup. Start slow and don't do anything fancy. Once everything is setled. Use "speed" features one at a time. It'll be easier to sort out what works and what doesn't.

@Ian Bell I fixed it. Thank you. I stopped MSI Afterbirner and stopped Easy Tune (Gigabyte App Center). Still stuttering, freezing, hard to drive.

I deleted Easy Tune, App center and kept MSI Afterburner, but not running. I booted into Bios and used the preset OC I used to use 4.6Mhz. PC2 was Smooth, but blurry due to low settings. YAY-Stuttering and freezing gone!! Last step.

I restarted MSI Afterburner and loaded my OC profile for GPU and ran again. Always Sonoma, GT3 in a 12-15 car field. SMOOTH as butter and lap times dropped again. Turned up again AI again!!

Thanks for letting me know about OC problems. Its not just OC, but the program (Easy Tune). Gonna miss the 4.9Mhz OC in other games, but that's okay.

I found Windows FCU forced my drivers to update and that caused micro stuttering (388.13 & .31 I think). I uninstalled FCU and went back to 385.69 -the only Nvidia drivers that don't cause me problems.

HTH.

Regarding the rainbow screen effect, apparently it's due to the Win10 Fall Creators Update, however installing older Nvidia drivers also gets rid of the problem (confirmed with driver v382.33). Hopefully MS will address a proper fix soon.

In the meantime, here is the easy 'workaround fix'.

Are you on Win10, Fall Creators Update (Win10 version 1709)? Then known issue, IIRC you'll have to revert to nVidia driver 385.69 to solve this issue.

Edit: i forgot to mention im on Windows F.C.U

Driver 388.59 out Now seems good so far.

i think the problem causing the last few batches of New drivers to have poor performance is the "Video Capture" and the "Highlights" being turned on at the same time!!! < Highlights seems to be a New feature that's been added recently --> Well at least I never Noticed it until recently:confused: But My point is They are 2 different Game play Recording/Capture settings active at the same time but with different Recording settings and the temp files save to different places on the same HDD at the same time when both settings are set to on!!! I turned off "Highlights" and Driver performance seems to be on par with Driver 385.69

See Pics below ---> Note the default temp file save locations are different.

Edit: I just Noticed the Broadcast Live is also set to on by default and I believe its also affecting performance Especially when using VR -->2 Video capture recordings going on at the same time plus Media streaming active also at the same time seems to be a Guaranteed performance killer.

I suggest Checking the settings in the New Driver/s to disable the things you don't Need active.

I just tried 388.59 and I changed the GeForce settings as recommended by GrimeyDog above. (I even ended up uninstalling GeForce Experience). Performance was still slightly better with 385.69. I don't have the Windows FCU (removed it because of the intrusive way it forced GPU drivers on me). Windows build is 1703, hardware listed in my sig. I use in game V sync (60hz), and I'm very sensitive to framerate drops.

EDIT: Any chance any of the devs could comment on preferred Nvidia drivers / Windows build?

P.S.: with the newest Quadro 386.01 drivers the performance was 1/2 than with the GTX+385.69, maybe they're loosing too much time implementing telemetry stuff?:rolleyes:

390.65 released.

After this update, I am having triple monitor problems. Single screen, no issues.
The game launches perfectly. All three monitors look great. All menus work, etc. When I try to race, I start having the strangest issue in triple screen mode. I have tried both a quick race and private testing with different cars and tracks to see if it affects my problem.

The problem:'drive
I choose a car and track and hit start. The next screen launches and then I click "drive" button. After clicking the drive button, all three screens have a black background. the only thing that is showing is the small banner on the center screen that show if the pit limiter is engaged or not. Everything else is blank. I can hear all the sounds of the game and the car is operational, I just can't see anything. When I hit escape , the previous screen comes up with all monitors showing the appropriate background.

Any ideas on what is causing this? Any fixes?
This problem is only happening in PCARS2. No issues with other games.

I don't know about your specific problem, but I found the latest driver didn't seem to perform so well (stutters / flashes), so I rolled back to 388.71.

In case you aren't aware of how to rollback drivers:

-Click Windows Start Icon
-Start typing 'device', to bring up 'Device Manager' & click on it.
-Select 'Display Adapters' / <your GPU>
-Click to Driver tab
-Select Rollback Driver

Either re-install the nVidia driver, or install an older version (388.xx).

Also make sure you turn off the new game bar functionality to check whether that's causing the issue.

Go to Services and find Windows Update service, go to its properties and select disabled, then stop service.

Bear in mind it will disable also windows defender latest definitions, so your pc might be at bigger security risk.

But in case anyone update theirs windows 10 to 1709 and notices its broken his pc, you have 10 days to rollback to 1703 without need to reinstall system

1709 update was actually painless for me and game performance is still fine (I just re-installed specific drivers just-in-case), and I made sure the new game bar stuff was turned off to make sure it wouldn't have any performance impact.

After reading your comment I instantly reverted the color depth in NVIDIA Control Panel to use the default settings, to see if its been fixed for me. But the screen is flashing like on a fashion show. So I set to "Use NVIDIA color settings - outout color depth to 8bpc" again. :)

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask so mods, if this is off-topic, I apologize. Do with it what you will.

I am in the process of switching over to PC for this game and I have an ASUS gaming laptop with a GTX 1080. Yesterday I got an Oculus Rift and attempted to get it setup. When I got to the point where you put the headset on and finish the remainder of the setup process in VR, I did not see any video in the Oculus. I could hear audio fine but the video was dark.

I looked on the Oculus forum and saw that there were known problems with some Nvidia driver versions but that 388.59 was supposed to work. So I went to Nvidia and installed that version but still no video. GeForce Experience shows that I'm running 388.59 but Windows says that I'm running 23.21.13.8859. So what's going on here? Any ideas on how to proceed? I'm tempted to box it all back up and send it back but I figure it's worth fiddling around at least a little bit to see if I can get it working. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ETA: just noticed that the last 5 numbers of the windows version corresponds to the nvidia version so those must be the same. I was trying to figure out why the version numbers were different.

Also if you put the headset on after it loads it could actually be centered on something like the floorboard. Auto recenter or program a button for vr center is good.

"ManualG; I have never had any performance issues with Project Cars 2 at any graphic settings. Always ran as smooth as butter, until the 391 driver.

Look at this video. The stutters (more like pauses) make the game totally unplayable for me. What's going on here? Funny how FFXV demo runs so well with this driver. Do I have to choose one game or the other? Not pleased."

If I have to choose between Pcars 2 and FFXV, the choice is clear. 100's and 100's of hours of fun in Pcars 2 versus 10 hours in any other game.

I had a similar issue yesterday (or the day before) with my Rift. I was getting massive stutters, I guess we have to roll back to the previous driver.

I have GTX1060 and experienced stutter using version 390.77 yesterday afternoon so rolling back to this version may not help. I was using the Pagani Roadster at Nordschliefe clear weather and the stutter then brief freeze then back to normal began happening on the long straight.

391.01 has been smoother than the last few drivers for me.

I don't think that Nvidia 391.01 driver was causing those massive stutters I had in Pcars 2. Just fired it up and check the video. Stutters, at least so far, are gone. I think it was the Steam issue with the FFXV preload. The preload is now gone and so are my stutters.

What issue with the preolad?

The FFXV Steam preload kept accessing the hard drive every few seconds which was causing me major stutters in other games. It was reported on the Steam forums here:

A bit of a long shot, but could it be antivirus causing this? I was getting freezes like this when I had Avast installed (now just using Windows Defender).

Not for me, I dont have any antivirus, also disabled defender. Though my stuttering is the shorter version that's being discussed around here and other forums

The only real difference in setup is wheel and pedals. My previous setup was a 6700k cpu and a 1080 card, the rest the same, same issue.
Anyone else have CSW2.5 wheelbase and heusinkveld pedals that can chip in with their experience?

I had a loss of audio two times with 391.35 and when I rolled back to 391.24 everything was fine again. I suppose waiting to download drivers until the game itself needs it is the best policy going forward.

I'm still using 388.31. They run good and i'm afraid to update and have it worse than what i have now.

One quick question. Do you guys run AA and AF in PC2 or in Nvidia CP?

Stuttering update: I installed Windows 8.1 Pro x64 instead of Windows 10 Pro x64, and so far the stuttering has gone. I will keep you posted.

Guess I'll roll back to this again, got quite a lot crashes recently on latest drivers (+artefacts plus another crash on desktop)

Theborv, it was just normal, because you have installed a new O.S., if you have installed win10, the result have been the same, otherwise everyone in windows10 had the same problem. Iīve installed win10 before it was available to everyone, and it was my only win10 instalation, and i donīt have any kind of stuttering( Nvidia GPUīs) in SLI.

Note: If you have crashes in your PC, something is wrong, be it the cpu (overclock) or the GPU(overclock), even if in other aplications(games) everything seams fine. As i have said in other forums topicīs, pcars2 it is one of the more demanding aplications out there, only assassins creed origins could be more demanding. My cpu ocupation in pcars2 : 23% in ACO= 25% to 45%, this with my cpu, just imagine a four core cpu! And Dram overclock is even more sensible in PCars2 than in ACO.

I would have agreed with you, but I had stuttering even with fresh installation on W10. Still stutterfree on W8.1

397.31 released yesterday. downloading now, will give them a try.

Many people having problems with GTX 1060 6Gb with the new 397.31 including me..
Windows is disabling the driver because it "reported a problem" (Code 43).
It seems largely to do with this particular card as others have installed ok.

I had to do a clean install of the older 391.35 and will wait for a fix from Nvidia

Hello, I have an Asus GTX 1060 Dual 3 Gb, and I tried the driver that you ask, but I'm back immediately on the latest driver released by Asus in the official site that is the 398.xx because I had many problems since the first releases of the new 40x.xx driver
They seem to be optimized a lot for RTX.
I have windows 10 64Bit
A friend of mine with a GTX 1080Ti had the same problem and came back to the 399.xx driver

What kind of problems? I am on the current drivers usually and it works flawless so far. Didnīt do any benchmarking though.

seems that gamers with specs near an office PC have performance problems ;)
Same here, nVidia on the latest driver revision. No problem at all, not 2D , not VR.

Id completely lost all performance lately and was getting crashes and massive lock ups in games i've played hundreds of hours in !
Was really pissing me off ! All after trying latest drivers !
I use DDU on all updates and was beginning to think nVidia had done something on latest drivers making my and all Pascal cards need to be on the latest drivers so they'd be slower now and we would all upgrade .
I have had the same undervolt 0.900mv@1898GHz for the last year and a half on my Galax GTX 1080Ti and just used the same settings for games but now i was not able to play longer than 10 minutes without issue !
Turns out something in the driver updates or even Win 10 updates or maybe Steam or Oculus updates screwed my undervolt up ! Even though the curve still looked the same , after i reset it and redid the same curve again i have my performance back
Why would one of these updates screw my undervolt up even though the curve still looked right ?
Anyway now on latest driver 416.34 and have the same performance as i did in May last year when i first did this undervolt

BigDad what score are you getting on fire striker for the graphics test? I was getting around 32000 but now
Im back down to 29000. I have the same undervolt as you but i might have to redo mine to see if I can get my score back up to 32000.

Ive never had a score of 32000 :( my highest with my full OC was 309xx and with undervolt I'm 295xx !
But with all latest updates Firestrike wouldn't even run and Timespy would be a overscanned stretched Green image that I stopped before even running it !
After redoing undervolt I'm back to 309xx OC and 295xx UV .
