    I have made the switch from AMD to Nvidia when I picked up a 3080 FE a couple of months bad and I'm surprised to see drivers as much as an issue as with AMD. I do find it weird how much stick AMD got for it while Nvidia get very little.

    I'm just sticking with the drivers that work for me and the games I'm playing currently which appear to be 460.89 (all newer ones caused issues) and won't bother updating them until I start playing a new game that doesn't work with them. I did exactly the same with AMD drivers and just used 20.4.2 AMD drivers for 4 months without a single issue. Newer drivers just seem to break stuff that used to be working in the effort to fix other issues and that seems the case for both AMD and Nvidia

    I've not had any driver related issues in years and years with Nvidia.

    670 - 970 - 1080 - 3080

    No probs.

    There are just so many combinations of OS versions/updates, Motherboards, RAM, Processors, Other Drivers (chipset/audio etc) so many variables that can cause issues.

    Must be a nightmare creating/testing these drivers as they would only be able test certain combinations of hardware/software.

    Best way. 445.87 I used with my 2080Ti all the time. Unfortunately that driver is not supported on 3080 so 460.89 it is for me. It seems the most stable at the moment

    I also use the 460.89 drivers, found them to be the most stable.

    Yep, 461.x have a LOT of issues that need fixing as mentioned in their release notes.. Also much higher latency
