Nvidia 313.96 Drivers and Blender

Just figured I would post this here if anyone was having issues. For me at least, blender broke when I installed the new beta drivers. It was mostly delayed input, but my performance also dropped a great deal in blender. Just rolling back my drivers to the latest WHQL version worked for me.

That explains why Blender’s GUI go nuts. I have a 670GTX with 313.96 64-bit drivers, I’ll downgrade to 313.90 and see if it works for me too.

I will edit this post later to confirm that it works.

Quite intresting, I got 313.96 beta as well, Blender works as usual, not a single problem.
Noticable performance boost though in some games. Updated from 306.97 whql though… rather long interval.

Yea, I had the same issue on Windows 8 with the 313.96 drivers and the new 314.07 WHQL drivers.

I’m going to contact nvidia support to see what they have to say.

I just spoke to nvidia support and they are aware of the issue and hoping it gets fixed in the next driver release.

Yeah I just updated to the latest WHQL and have the same issue and I am still having this issue. In the meantime I guess I will rollback my drivers again.
