Nvidia 417.22 Driver Issues

Dear fellow LTTers,

If you recently updated to the latest Nvidia driver (417.22), and you are rocking a laptop GPU, you might notice some sliightly horrible performance in games. You may think that RTX has somehow been enabled, but this is not the case. Apparently there's a bug in the driver that locks a number of graphics cards into running low core and memory clocks. My GTX 1050 Ti gets stuck at 600 mhz with this driver, which delivers a cinematic 38 FPS in Far Cry 2. Hey, I love Far Cry 2, don't be hatin'. Anyway, please be sure to install an older driver from Nvidia's website if you're experiencing this issue. (417.01 is A-okay). https://www.geforce.com/drivers

And here's a reddit post full of angry comments about this problem.
