384.94 WHQL

GeForce Driver 384.80 was released July 4, 2017 for Windows 7, WIndows 8 and Windows 10. Avoid the spyware GeForce experience.

  • Added support for Lawbreakers
  • Fixed Doom GPU clock problems but other titles are still not fixed
  • Brief graphical corruption on screen during Windows startup appears specific to Asus GTX 1080 Ti Strix OC

HDR is handled by Windows 10 and updates to Windows are needed to catch up to be able to use the NVIDIA API. The Fall Creators Update should have HDR done.

If you need to revert back to a previous driver release you can remove the NVIDIA driver from the control panel and you will need to reboot. The the desired driver can be installed which will require another reboot. Use the driver defaults. Use in-game settings to adjust the performance or FX.

Never force game option with the driver. Use in-game options only. We see so many try to get features of games that do not have intrinsic ability. Always use in-game options and use driver defaults from a clean install.


Forums galore are flooded with problems, none of which are reproducible by us. If the games are not working properly, backup and install Windows fresh. One of the best new features of Windows 8 and above is the Refresh Windows. This preserves libraries but its otherwise the same as a clean install. Drivers are hard to debug at the best of times.

With all the problems we have found; it clearly demonstrates that WHQL is rather pointless from a gaming perspective. No wonder our site is so popular.
