Good, now they need to get full WDDM 2.2 support and we're all set ...

D3D12 has now totally eclipsed Vulkan in terms of functionality ...

What do you mean with full WDDM 2.2 support? Using this driver on Creator's update, DXdiag reports WDDM 2.2.

I'm having some issues with this driver. DiRT: Rally refuses to run in fullscreen mode for me now. Also, I noticed that when my screensaver turns on, my screen just shows the message "This screen saver can't run because it requires a newer video card or one that's compatible with Direct3D". It's like Windows itself isn't recognizing any hardware acceleration at all. Yeesh.

I've tried completely uninstalling it, running the newest version of Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode, and then re-installing the driver with driver signature enforcement turned off (since it's non-WHQL). Still giving me issues either way. Bummer.

Edit: Other games have been refusing to launch altogether, throwing errors that say "fullscreen mode not found" or something like that. That's a pretty egregious bug, honestly.

I've reverted back to 17.4.1 and all is well for now.

Hmm. This driver seems to have reintroduced the issue where older CPUs that don't support the popcint instruction set can't run games in DirectX 12. My brother's Core 2 Quad Q6600 is back to being unable to play games in DX12.

I had to revert back to my previous drivers, I lost a lot of framerates in most games with this one- for example, I couldn't get past 30fps in Planetside 2 when I can easily get 80+.
