Latest Geforce Game Ready Drivers

It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

I upgraded to 430.86 (Win) recently and saw no noticeable changes. Time to read the changelog for 431.

I am still running 418, as it gets me higher PPD scores than 430.26 or 430.16 in Linux.
Haven't tried 430.34 yet.

I did notice, but it can be just my imagination, that 430 drivers are more forgiving when overclocking too high.
They seem to throttle down easier, making it harder to reach the overclocking frequency I'd like to reach.
Eg: if I want to overclock the GPU by 100 Mhz, it will only overclock by 75.
When I do 125Mhz, it'll overclock by 90 or 95. I'll have to pull it all in the 135Mhz zone for it to reach a 100Mhz actual overclock.

418 seems more stable in that, where 100Mhz is closer to an actual 100Mhz overclock.

What is the OpenCL Platform Version in these drivers ?

I have OpenCL 1.2 CUDA 10.1.120 in 430.39 ... if this build didn't change, it has no chances to change anything for FAH.

FAH requires OpenCL 1.2 or greater. (It used to work with 1.1 but it lacked FP64 and could only manage smaller proteins.)
Many drivers support V2.0 but AFAIK, FAH doesn't takk advantage of any of those features.

On Windows 7 I use nvidia driver 425 with gtx 1080ti. For the new nvidia RTX Super GPUs you need nvidia driver 431 and also for latest Windows 10 update
