Just a word of warning, the Nvidia 375.20 driver seems to have quite a number of issues in certain games bringing performance down a lot.

Not everyone will have issues, as it seems only certain people are affected. Some people have reported no issues, while others are being given black screens or outright terrible performance.

Nvidia recommend downgrading to the 375.10 driver.

The next 375.xx driver should have a fix available, but Nvidia said there is no workaround for the 375.20 driver. Article taken from GamingOnLinux.com.

I run Manjaro Linux (Stable) and that has 370.28 as the newest, But on friday i upgrading from GTX 960 2gb to a GTX 1060 6gb and really wished i had not, Most of my games run the same or less frames per second than the 960, so i was hoping the 375 driver would help out the 1060 but after reading this topic maybe not then :'(

Does this only effect some games more than others? I haven't noticed much of a difference when playing Dying Light.
I have, however, been having some screen-tearing issues lately, but I'm not sure if that's from something I did or the driver.

What's your CPU? I switched from AMD to Intel and easily gained 20 fps in Witcher II without changing GPU.

AMD FX 8350, I did look up I7 motherboard bundles but at around £600 for a Quad core with 16gb ram i think i'll wait to see how well the AMD Zen processors work and the Price.

I am glad that philm from Manjaro Team decided to keep 370.28 on Stable and Testing repositories after we have reported him the problems we had with nvidia drivers on Plasma.
The bad thing about Manjaro is that they dont give us many Nvidia drivers to choose from, Just only one driver....:|

The drivers from the Nvidia website are safe to use, for over 2 years I've been installing them in this way and I can't say I've ever had any problems, so if you can't find what you need in the repo you might wanna give them a shot :-)

Look at the good side though, we can expect a new drivers coming soon ;)

I’m still on the 367.44 drivers with my GTX 1060 and happy with them, no issue (I played Mad Max and am playing Dying Light with this version). But I think I’ll update to the fixed 375 for Deus Ex since they increased the shaders cache to help with it.

PS: On Gentoo we can choose between 26 different nvidia-drivers versions, downgrading is not an issue :p.

Right after upgrading my system! Great!

Their SLI function is also BROKEN at 4k, forcing only 30hz option no matter what (at 4k, although it still looks 30hz at lower res). I only wanted to try SLI for select titles that have inbuilt support for it, but not at 30hz.

I guess I should pester NVIDIA about this on their forums sometime....
