Default Lost of FPS after NVIDIA drivers update and roll back.

Starting from my spec: i5 7600k at 4 ghz, 32 gb ram ddr4, Evga 1070ti clocked in safe clock mode on win 10 OS.

I use to run dcs in 1920x1080 with 90- 180 fps, I had the 419.17 nvidia drivers, all good till I decided to try some newst drivers, released last week.
Lost roughly 60 fps with same control panel settings, so I decided to roll back, removed all the old drivers with DDU and reinstalled the 419.17.

Well same settings and everything and now I perform in between 45 and 90 fps only while on ground. Sometimes i get 100 ish flying above 10k feet.

Is still playable of course but I wonder wtf is going on with these drivers.

What drivers you guys using???? Any particular setting?


thx

Well, over the years i have experienced the same thing with various nVidia drivers. Never found out why it's happening sometimes. And yes, a rollback then never works to get back what you lost.
My guess is that "somehow" the FPS that's showed isn't always correct.
I had +/- the same issue lately when doing some tests with my Rift-S VR headset. All of a sudden i had a constant 80FPS showing which i only achive when looking at an empty sky or flying real high with nothing else going on.
Stop DCS, start DCS, same behavior. But then after a reboot, it fell back to the 40 i was normally seeing.

I worked my way up to the 430.86 drivers which work great for me. I've been chicken to try anything newer knowing that rollbacks don't always work well.

DVI. Settings for Nvidia or DCS? I have a 1060 6g card and only use a 1080 monitor. I get about 90-110 fps with high settings.
Our systems are similar. I have a bit more CPU and you have a bit more GPU.

i7 7700k @ 4.6 ghz
