    This is old news for rtx 3090 owners. I just want to know what driver works for this GPU? Nvidia sucks atm. ? The latest drivers are broken.

    I did a massive upgrade, triple 32 inch 144hz 1440p plus Gpu 3090 top of the range and no fu$/ing use. Very dissapointed.

    Any suggestions?

    461.72 works fine for me. If there's only stuff in the driver's changelog for games I don't play I don't update it.

    Your thread makes me nervous.
    Okay, only using a 3080 here, but using every single driver since release and never had a problem with one of them.

    Are those both cards so different or is the problem probably another one on your side having those?

    The 3080 and 3090 are very similar, the only real difference is the additional VRAM on the back of the 3090. Even custom water cooler from brands like Alphacool fits on both cards.

    I have a 3090 since October 2020 and had not a single issue with the GPU drivers. All games and programs runs with the advertised performance. I had no black screens. The only annoyance was pretty fierce coil whine but that was gone after slapping a water cooler on the card.
