I had tested latest nvidia 364.96 hotfix and compare performance with 314.22 driver from 2013 year in Dark Souls 3.
Game is playing on fermi GTS 450 ,at exact same custom settings at 1360x768p
Dark souls 3 latest 364.96 hotfix driver gameplay
Dark Souls 3 gameplay on 314.22 driver from 2013 year
So with older driver i have 10-15 more average fps and higher max fps too
What the hell is happening NVIDIA?
Why you are reducing performance in latest driver again???
Fermi users need to know why,confirmed on reddit too by many GTX 400 and 500 users
So we need to think what kind of corporation are they, if we need 2013 year old driver in order to play 2016 year latest game with playable fps, compared to latest drivers with single digit fps in this game
something very fishy is happening. NVIDIA still refuse to give official statement
more info on Reddit too
