The drivers have been successfully able to offer generous performance boost in many games live CS: Go. Although only a few days have passed since the initial release of the drivers, but users have started to report bugs and issues that may potentially kill off GPU’s.

The drivers are still available on the manufacturer’s website and the company as of yet has made no comments.
