Since updating Nvidia drivers I now experience peformance drops when playing video on dual monitors

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is a bit of a weird one but I'm curious if anyone has encountered the same thing / found a solution.

 

Specs:

 

i7 7700k ,1080ti, 16gb ram

1440p  144hz monitor as main monitor, 4k 60hz monitor secondary

 

What happened:

 

Up until a month or so ago, I had never updated my nvidia drivers. No game had caused any issues and since I had no reason to fix something that wasn't broken I never bothered. However, I recently started playing monster hunter world, and the game prompted me to update. I did face some pretty serious graphical issues, so I updated my nvidia drivers and that solved it. Great. However, ever since then in all games I play I have been having serious performance issues IF I started watching video content on my second monitor. To make sure I wasn't going crazy, I rolled back my nvidia driver and sure enough those performance issues disappeared - however I am now unable to play MHW and also have lost access to nvidia shadowplay (havent been able to roll back geforce experience).

 

I'm a bit of a predicament where I often like to watch twitch streams/youtube while grinding out activities in games, but my perfomance is awful with the updated nvidia drivers - however I cant play some games unless I update them.

 

Has anyone experienced anything like this or come up with a solution? I have checked online and have read many suggestions (setting refresh rate of monitors to the same, resolution to the same etc) but none of this has made any difference. The only surefire way I can get the performance back for dual screen is to roll back the nvidia driver.

 

Thanks!

Just to be sure I understand - the unisntaller from device manager to remove the nvidia 1080ti drivers. Then just reinstall them?

i7 7700k 1080ti


Example: Im playing Destiny 2 and watching a Twitch stream using Firefox (also Chrome) - this will kill my performance in D2 on the latest nvidia driver. On original driver, no issues.
