That’s why I’m telling you. It may just work for you or because you have vsync on. The freezes trigger sooner with vsync off and with faster hardware.
And when even the hardware maker lists these as a known issue then the responsible thing to do is to follow their recommendation.
You can also check for the flickering issue when you turn the HUD into 1st person view. The flicking also shows around the capacitor display and in the character creation menu for new players. It may also be connected to the triangle issues that some have seen.
Even when 396.54.02 is working flawlessly for me so far, am I still cautious, because they’ve just released 396.54.05, another beta of their latest driver. So the Vulkan issues will be far from over.
I’m glad Nvidia is capable to get on top of these issues as fast as they have. They use the advances by Steam / Valve to stomp every last issue in their driver, which is really great.
