349.65 has been released for the Windows 10 (technical preview of course). That's the first WDDM 2.0 [Edit: Whether or not it supports DX12 is not clear] driver and it seems it's not available for now from nVidia directly, but only via Microsoft's Windows Update.

So far OK folding a P9411 WU on my 970 - PPD is around 290k with TPF around 4 mins 10 secs.

That looks rather high. Is you card overclocked, or is Windows 10 faster than Win7?

Cool, thats encouraging. That probably now overtakes the linux performance where 270k is about right for a mild 970 running 9201.
May I ask what core version are you running?
I think we are finally (1 year after launch!) getting the driver and core maturity to see the true potential of Maxwell.

From what I have read, this driver has partial DirectX 12 support. There is also a release notes PDF link in the following article. This knowledge base article references a later driver, 349.72:

Thanks.

Sorry, had to clarify - yes, I'm clocked at 1530Mhz so my TPF/PPD is not much a reference ;-) Will check at stock clocks (for My MSI card anyway).

Edit: So on a different p9411 WU (core 17, beta flag), my TPF is around 4 mins 40 secs

How about core 18 + win 10 on that driver? Any changes?

Some drivers have been rewritten for Windows 10. If the current drivers work in Win10, they'll also work with Core_18
