I haven't had much luck with the later NVIDIA drivers (even WHQL) and so have reverted to 310.70 but this one shows up on Windows Update now, just wondering if anyone has done the update and if they're good before i try it myself.

 

I have a 560 GTX btw.

Very seldom use the drivers from the Windows update site myself, unless I'm working on some one else's computer and it has onboard graphics. I've ran into issues a couple times doing it that way. Would prefer to get them directly from the Nviida site. Just seems to work better, for me.

I'm using the Windows 8.1 Preview and on Youtube videos still flicker and the graphics driver still crashes. And I even downloaded the same drivers from the NVidia website. I found them in the Windows 8.1 thread in the NVidia forums. No difference! I have the Asus Geforce GTX560ti top series.

I haven't had any problems on em with my 660, at least I assume they're the one that was supposed to be on WU before but never showed up for me so I got it from NV heh.

I have the 560 too, you might want to try what I did and downgrade to 310.70 and uncheck "check for updates". I don't get the Youtube flicker issue you do, for me the card overheats in normal desktop mode :s It's a known issue with older cards (and some newer) since the 320.x versions if I recall.

 

Guess I won't upgrade, and not fix what ain't broke :p Thanks guys :)

Actually it's just 320.49 from what I know.  They broke something with regards to the voltage regulator coming back from Sleep mode.  The newer versions are fine in that regards.

I read on Techspot that 320.18 are the ones on WU (were beta but now WHQL) but I'm not sure because no version number is shown in the details for the update.


Edit: http://forum.noteboo...d-1st-july.html 320.49 then I guess. Would they have certified those drivers? :s

The Windows 8.1 release is actually specific to 8.1, should be 326.01

 

The default 8.1 drivers are 325.7x iirc

I'll give them a try and report back any findings.

Aren't the drivers on WU the same ones available on NVIDIA's website?

The WU driver package is the same one as the one Nvidia had on their web site. (326.01)

 

It installs silently though so you'll end up with the 3D Vision and Nvidia Update nonsense. :p

I have check for updates unchecked, because WU will tell me anyway.
