New Web Driver (V161) released this morning:

Cuda Driver shows no change.

I wonder if it's to fix regressions that are causing so many users to stay on 378 series drivers.

EDIT. nope that's not fixed. still sluggish and still memory leak with window server. ANyone who tested driver reverted back to 378

There was a small improvement in my case with regard to "Heaven" and "Valley" results by around 100 points. Can't tell if its the driver though.

I think it's a reasonable assumption that NVIDIA is working hard to fix all the issues people have reported with the 387 drivers.  I've seen many reports that the memory leak was fixed with the latest driver release, is there something specific about your setup when you see the leak?  I saw mention of scaled modes on another forum.

I personally saw 387 driver over course of few days become so sluggish with even just web surfing, I went back to 378 and no problems even if I don't reboot for a while.

I also saw a few posts in hackintosh thread confirming memory issues with window srver too with 161. Users do say it's better but not totally resolved. It's likely a step in right direction but not totally resolved would be my guess.

More complaints about the performance issues than window server (i think some think they are tied together, I'm not sure if they are or aren't. I didn't check memory when i saw performance issues I just rolled back. I'm also on a haswell cpu which normally wasn't affected by performance issues to degree most of these users see. I only saw them if I didn't reboot for a while)

Don't know if it's just hackintoshes or just unflashed nvidia cards, but everyone claims current driver still hosed for 10 series cards and skylake or later cpus.

Two new reports of drivers also being hosed for 7 series intel processors too.

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/nvidia-releases-alternate-graphics-drivers-for-macos-high-sierra-10-13-4-387-10-10-10-30.249039/

I happen to be right in middle with 8 series hasewell and 9 series gpu, so I can't really reproduce their results.

I just wrote Netkas yesterday and suggested he try 106 to fix some eGPU issues.

Hopefully Nvidia fixes soon.

I'm someone and the new Web Driver works fine for me!  I have an MVC (Rominator) flashed GTX 1080.  No issues, except as mentioned above, Cuda is broken - for now!

Rolling back to 106 fixes CUDA, FWIW
