My Win10 test machine with a GTX760 in it just got upgraded to the latest beta and is crunching 2 units at a time using driver version 349.65, so there are even newer ones out there. They could be beta drivers though I guess, sometimes the software does things automatically on that machine. I don't see any changes in crunching time since using the older 347.25 drivers and the new drivers though.

349.65 is a Win10-only driver, from Windows Update. It's one of the first to offer DirectX 12 game support, I believe. And, it's already outdated. Windows Update is now offering 349.90 to Windows 10 Build 10041 users. I'm happily crunching 2-GPU-tasks-at-a-time-per-GPU, on 3 GPUs, in my main rig, on 349.90 drivers, on Win 10 Build 10041.

But let's get this back on topic. 347.88 is the latest from NVIDIA, for all OS's. And my testing of it, on Windows 10 Build 9926, indicated that it performed just fine for GPUGrid. And the NVIDIA GeForce forums indicate that, despite it being a "game-ready" driver for Battlefield Hardline, it doesn't work properly for that game :)

Anyway, 347.88 is recommended (by me) for GPUGrid.

I REALLY appreciate that guys!
I DO make mistakes though and DO appreciate the PM's telling me so! I have been crunching for a long time and some of the newer folks are seeing some of the same problems we all saw many years ago.
