  1. Well, for my part I have a G4560 + RAM 1x8GB 2400Mhz + EVGA GTX 1060 3G SC + HDT 1TB Toshiba and Windows 10 has just updated a few moments ago to this version.
    In the next few days I will be monitoring to see how games go with the "Fall Creators Update" and then comment on this comment.
    PS: Very good video, apparently there is no performance improvement with a pro-nVidia configuration. Greetings from Argentina.

  2. wait so they actually fixed Game Mode? bcuz one of the devs said the first creators update has bad game mode ver. on it..
    is the fall creator's versiob is much better now? have you tried PUBG or MMO games on that setting? would happy to know your feedback.

  3. It came to me that maybe only gpu limited folks saw some improvement. Afterall cpu limited guys liek you and me bangy didn´t see any. and yes, the 1080ti is behemoth enough to even cpu limit a 7700k @ 4ghz in most games these days. shit you not.

  4. I now personally believe that anyone pining for frames higher than 60 FPS must suck in multi player games. Honestly, who the fuck cares if you are getting 98 FPS as opposed to 78? It's all a scam.

  5. I haven't noticed any performance improvements with my GTX 1080 Ti either since updating to Windows 10 v1709 Build 16299.xx a couple of weeks ago (as an Insider).

    Joker claims a 10-26% performance improvement on the VEGA 56 but that is more likely due to AMD's poor DX11 driver possibly benefiting from WDDM 2.3 maybe rather than an overall improvement at the operating system level otherwise everyone would be seeing this increase. NVIDIA have a very mature and well optimised DX11 driver so there's no tangible improvement to be seen after the upgrade.

    I suspect AMD graphics card owners are going to see the biggest improvements.

  6. I didn't when I did a clean install I actually had worse performance then I did a update from a previous install and had better performance .. I hate windows. But I'm happy my performance is better now. Joker productions just did a video on this showing some of the games you show and his margins have huge gains of performance up to 27% in some games. So yea like you said depends on your system. I'm running a i7 7700k with a Evga 1070sc

  7. It didn't change performance for people that already figured out to disable fullscreen optimization from last creator's which could have big problems for people (Joker was probably one of them), but we are at Anniversary edition performance again without having to mess with stuff and most importantly Forza 7 no longer stutters like crazy. Whether this has to do with WDDM 2.3 (check dxdiag under display) and Shader Model 6.1 being in the update? I have no idea. Forza 7 runs like a dream now though. Riva Tuner needs updated I think. Have seen crashes in Witcher 3 transitioning from map with it on. With it off it was fine. I had no crashes in other games though and it was repeatable and had to do with the map.
