So it looks like the screen discoloration from 355.98 is fixed, but now the 980M isn't being utilized fully (at least in Firestrike).

Ran these tests within a few minutes of each other, only difference being the driver version -
New drivers: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6178045
Old drivers: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6178116

MSI Afterburner indicated GPU usage never progressed beyond 50-60% in the new drivers (as opposed to 99-100% with the old drivers).

Guys, this is a problem with your personal installs and not the drivers. I have noticed since switching from AMD to nVidia that I need to use Display Driver Uninstaller between each driver version or I get weird things like DX errors and clock issues like you guys are experiencing. Since I used DDU between the last ones and these ones I have absolutely no issues. I just ran Fire Strike on my G751JY 980M and I got the same score as with the 355.98 drivers and 98~99% utilization the whole time.

Performance for me actually increased. The problem is that people don't use Display Driver Uninstaller and then complain about issues or performance!

I use DDU and download clean drivers from Nvidia's website for all my installs to avoid issues with GeForce Experience, but thanks for being presumptuous I guess. I'd say the problem is that people assume and make an ass out of u and me, but that's neither here nor there.

For anyone actually trying to solve the problem, this thread on the Nvidia subreddit indicates that it might be an issue with G-Sync: https://www.reddit.com/r/nvidia/comments/3o5qxh/35850_drivers_if_u_have_gsync_monitor_and_play/

Regardless, 355.82 has worked splendidly for me so I'll stick with that.

Agreed. I upgraded to 358.50 and faced fps drop on my machine.

Used DDU and above package and reinstalled 355.82. Took 10 minutes.

liviutatarus : Grab nVidia inspector and get that extra bit of juice from your system!

It is enough performance, I prefer to leave things as they are :)
