Evening Folks,

Just wanted to let everyone know that after updating to the most recent Nvidia drivers my runtimes dropped by 80 seconds on my GTX 1080s (from ~550s to ~470s). It had been a while since updating so I don't know when this improvement happened, but if you haven't updated in a while, now might be a good time :)

Regards,
Kellen

A little over 10% improvement in both Win 7 and 10 compared to various earlier driver versions. I'm pleasantly surprised.

The CUDA runtimes were updated from 9.1 to 9.2 and that is where the increase is coming from. I've seen a drop from 105 sec to 90 sec on a Tesla v100 which is a huge difference for just a software change.

For anyone interested on a Windows 10 machine using the driver discussed on a 970 the tasks take 17 minutes 17 seconds to complete
