Latest NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Drivers for Windows 8

Good grief Charlie Brown, it's raining drivers lately. Makes one wonder if the Nvidia coders are on speed. :)

Maybe catching up so they can take the holidays off.
:roflmao: coders have no rest nowadays!

Did they start using speed after 344.11? I will try 344.75 and hope they got it right.

Ak

Minor fixes for sure.

Good notice, I tended to skip one or two versions since they update that fast, got lazy in installing the same stuff over and over again + the on-board gfx here gets older compared to the higher and higher average.

They might be using 'speed' but that doesn't mean our graphics will get better.

There are some improvements to expect on newer Maxwell cards, for older gpu's I don't expect anything besides newer versions of software packages (Experience, Physx...) since it's still 344, it's one of those minor releases.

And the installer size gets bigger and bigger each time so I'd expect more software, bloatware...
But good, I'll install this one. :)

    That's basically it.
I've been getting BSOD VIDEO_SCHEDULER_ERROR with the last two releases watching YouTube Videos. I hope this one fixes it.

Updated and just got another one, VIDEO_SCHEDULER_INTERNAL_ERROR, So far it only seems to happen when watching YouTube, right at the end of a video. Time to do some Google searches I guess.

Since I switched back to Nvidia with this new pc, I have been pleased with the improvements they have made. The most notable is the automatic notification, almost weekly, that a compatability upgrade is ready for installation for new technology and it auto installs after one click. My card runs all the software I own and even 'olde worlde' games!!! Impressed.

Nvidia has released the 344.80 Beta Hotfix graphics driver. This driver is for GeForce 400 and higher graphics cards under Windows Vista, 7 and 8. It is a hotfix for resolving texture shimmering on the GTX 980 when Texture Filtering Quality is set to High Quality; fuzzy lines appearing over DisplayPort after a period of time following driver updates; and system hanging and black screens when using a GTX 980 with DP1.2 & 4K/60Hz monitors.

This is a beta fix so check it out first to see if it's for you.

That sounds almost exactly like the type of problem I was having with my display. 344.75 seems to have fixed the problems I had but I will give this beta driver a test...

... Work OK for me.

Thanks for the info.

All these updates seem to be for newer cards. I'm going to pass for awhile as my graphics work fine with games and everything else. Besides, I'm notebook/laptop trash anyway. :)

These new drivers have been coming out every few weeks now, use to be longer between updates, not sure if it's a good thing or bad thing . Yeah i do not have the GTX 980, but seem to update it anyway, with no issues yet. 344.75

I just updated from 347.09 beta to 347.09 whql. I would have thought that the installer would detect that everything is the same and quit installing. Obviously there must be differences between the beta version and the whql version - the file sizes are not the same.


Am I wrong in thinking that if they make changes, the version number should change, like 347.10?

Windows Updates

31 December 2014


Microsoft has caused some confusion by releasing a new Nvidia Geforce driver via Windows Update which appears as an Important, and thus automatically installed, update for some Windows 8.1 users. Official details of what the driver update contains are not yet available, but user feedback such as this thread on the GeForce Forums indicates that it is an older 344.91 driver, and may be a bugfix release. On some systems it appears as an Optional update. It's not recommended installing it if you are running a newer GeForce driver such as 347.09 until MS releases more information.

Apparently, MS's info link directs you here with no information:

I have nothing on my system pertaining to this event but, I thought this information might benefit others.

I haven't updated my new desktop graphics driver ( the one the store that built my PC installed) but this warning helped, I like doing clean driver installs and I might just have clicked it through had I not read it here. Thanks!
