Warning from Shared Computing Project....

I am a member of several shared computing projects & saw this warning in the announcements area of BOINC Manager—I am running the current beta driver without any problems, but would like more information/clarification from the developers about this…Should I be worried?


"Numerous participants have had tasks fail due the Nvidia’s buggy 364.xx driver. If you’re using this driver, I recommend reverting to an earlier version of the driver with a major version number lower than 364.

If you’re currently running an older version of the driver, I strongly recommend that you do not “upgrade” to 364.xx. I’ve also heard reports of this driver “bricking” GPUs, and that goes way, way beyond merely having some BOINC tasks fail."
