Latest nVidia drivers slows down performance of previous gen cards?

Is this a bug or intentional has someone investigated the cause yet? Has it already been patched?

GTX 900 series affected? 

I hope not, I'm still running a 970.

Honestly, there are many theories of this, but they are still selling 10** series cards so there would be no point in slowing them down.  This is as much of a crazy conspiracy theory as the globalist cloud people takeover.

Haha, I don't think there's a conspiracy at hand, but I do know the overall, general consensus is that gamers would instead buy the previous gen top cards then go out and buy the latest cards especially with blindly investing in RTX right now ..  I mean it's possible as a means to show a significant increase to the performance  of the RTX cards, to slow down previous gen cards to widen the gap. 

Also, in addition to my above reply, I think if it were true, it's terribly skuzzy of nVidia to pull an apple trick.

GTX 900 series affected too, I think from NVIDIA driver page for this driver.

416.34 is the latest driver, I don't have the means to test this though.

Probably just a bug.

This has happened plenty of times before.

Sometimes performance goes up, sometimes it goes down.

On average it goes up.

 

PS- sometimes it can be windows 10 that's not behaving properly with the new drivers.

UFDTech did a video on this, with commentary about how this was patched for the most part. I think he said impacts were still more on the lower end cards.

 

I'm not into conspiracy theories, but considering the amount of impact on day 1, I wonder if this was done to impact release benchmarks on day one, since i think it got fixed in day two?
