NVIDIA is investigating the problems caused by its GeForce 320.18 WHQL

A few days ago we reported on the serious problems that have caused a lot of users drivers . After several days of apparent silence, finally today we bring Nvidia’s official response to this situation.

GeForce 320.18 WHQL drivers were released on May 23, since when they started reported a wide variety of graphical corruption issues, flickering textures, instability, decreased performance, and even problems in web browsers. But undoubtedly the most concern was the high number of reports of damaged card, after installing these drivers, cases have been increasing in the following days.

Note that this is not a general situation, as many users report that they have not had any with these drivers, but others have not had the same luck and report that this will hurt their video cards based on GeForce 600 / 500/400 (most cases occur in the GeForce GTX 680/670/660 Ti, GeForce GTX 580/570 and GeForce 480/470) and even older GPUs like GeForce 200 (a user reports that after installing these drivers , one of the two GPUs on which is based the GeForce GTX 295 stopped working hopelessly), 9000 and 8000 Series.

There is a high incidence of failures in video cards factory overclocked, but also a few cases in reference video cards (government securities), but have any of them as a precautionary measure it is recommended that users of video cards based on the GeForce 600 and above uninstall GeForce 320.18 WHQL drivers and instead download and install the drivers GeForce , which according to reports, are those with a more stable behavior.

The German sites ComputerBase and Heise have contacted Nvidia, which has confirmed that they are currently investigating the problems caused to its customers GeForce 320.18 WHQL drivers, which attempt to reproduce internally, in order to find a solution.

For now, given the many factors that together could affect the reported problems, is costing some time to reproduce the error, so you still are not sure if they were caused by the driver.

Nvidia subsequently report the results of their investigations.
