Thank You all for the advice and help!

For the record my 1070 Ti now uses about 1300 seconds to run an Ap26-Ap27 , with driver 416.34 it used about 2100-2300 seconds, nice achivement!

My old nvidia 680 used between 7700 and 8100 seconds with driver 416.34, now down to about 5000 seconds running driver 399.05, very nice!

Ready and eager to start the november challenge indeed😉

With regards,

I've been running some Ap27 wu's this evening on two of my humble machines, both with
the latest driver(416.81).
Both of them running clean install and restarted mine machines. If the wu's are not too different, it seems that my 1070Ti runs faster; run time about 100 sec and Cpu time 20 sec faster!

I installed the driver yesterday evening around 20.00 UTC and have completed 8 wu's so far.

My other pc, with an "old" 680 have only completed one (one still running), run time has increased a lot but Cpu time gone down.

At least faster than previous driver (416.34)!

Stats not good but just what I got so far!

With regards,

Just a couple of days after updating my Nvidia to the latest driver 381.85 from 04/06/2017 and after the start of the ongoing challenge ,stupid me said yes to preinstall Creators Update.
No hassle with the upgrade, but my gpu wu's on PrimeGrid started to error out(Genefer and AP27).
Then I tried Gpu work from some other projects, like GpuGrid, Albert(Einstein Test) and Asteroid, all running very well!
Reinstalled gpudriver and tried the latest boinc 7.7.2, which worked without problem on my two other pc's
Then today when starting running Intel Driver Update Utility I had to unistall and reinstall the utility to make it work;and a new idea emerged!!

Clean reistall of the Nvidia driver and Yoho ;gpu on PrimeGrid ( the other projects no problems!) is working again!!
Wondering if I need to change other programmes later; no other problems so far!!

Hope this will help and avoid frustations for You when updating/upgrading to Creators Update!

Thank You !
