After hearing a report that the new driver 375.57 broke F@H, I immediately thought "oh no, 364 OpenCL fiasco again..." and proceeded to investigate. I quickly ran a bit of GFN Manual Sieve and some N=13 random testing and the results matched between versions, indicating that PrimeGrid is probably safe (didn't test PPS SV, 12M Manual SV or AP27, though).

HOWEVER, when I ran F@H, every single WU would fail. So the report was right, the new driver did break something.


Now, again, PrimeGrid seems to be fine. It probably is. But given that the 364 ghost is still around, I'd advise caution and to NOT update to the new driver, especially if you are currently running F@H like I am. If you do update, however, stay sharp for failing WUs. Likewise, I'd advise project managers to keep an eye for increased failure rates.

An update 375.63 has been released. Apparently 375.57 was also breaking some Windows functionality. Dunno if they fixed folding.

I just stopped updating Nvidia drivers about a month ago when I suddenly had to register and give them my first born son.

It may not be clear, but it is geforce experience which requires the login. You can uninstall that and separately update the driver.

I have about 100 failed genefer 22 work units since installing the 367.57 driver (64 bit linux version) on my previously unshakeable linux box with gtx970 a coup,e of days ago; all returnng an 'output file not found' error.

Intend backing down to previous (340?) version if i van locate it on the repositories. In the mean time, general warning; don't update the nvidia drivers to 367 on linux?

Update: This was fixed by uninstalling and reinstalling the nvidia drivers; on suse leap 42.1 using yast, one apparently has to explicitly instruct the software manager to 'Install All Matching Recommended Package' via the 'extras' menu in yast. https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:NVIDIA_drivers gives details.

And the next train is derailing already!

http://www.guru3d.com/news-story/nvidia-geforce-375-86-whql-drivers-have-major-issues.html

As for the F@H problem, it's still there. The issue is officialy acknowledged in the driver patch notes, so at least Nvidia is aware and working on a fix.

At any rate, though, the advice still stands: do not update to the 375 family of drivers.

EDIT: Hot news (pertaining the low clock issue). Nvidia is aware of the issue and has identified the cause. A hotfix driver should be coming soon.

News: 1h ago, hotfix driver 376.48 was released. And low and behold, "Workaround to fix incorrect Folding@Home work units" is in the notes! Yay!

https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/983216/geforce-drivers/announcing-hot-fix-driver-376-48/

Now, I don't have a GPU anymore to actually confirm that it's indeed working, but that's at least something. As always, though, keep an eye out for potential failures that this fix may / may not have called upon us...
