Unhappy EVGA GTX 1060 DirectX 12 issues

Hello All,

I bought a new gpu last week the EVGA GTX 1060 SSC from the local Best Buy. I removed an EVGA GTX 770. I installed the new card and everything seemed fine. Then I did a clean install of the drivers just because I like to make sure everything is clean.

I launched Civilization 6 in DirectX 12 mode and then attempted the benchmark. The game crashed due to a device driver issue. I will try to get a screenshot of the error later today.

I then realized my SSD was having read/write issues. So, I bought a couple of new SSD and reinstalled Windows 10 and the graphics driver. (I figured now the game would work).

I then launched Civ 6 and it ran for a bit then crashed with a driver error. I have tried uninstalling all driver components and running older drivers. All have the same issue.

Any suggestions???

preemptive: Thanks for the help!

DX12 in Civ 6 crashed for me too. DX12 is pretty immature right now, I wouldn't use it. It causes a heft performance decrease in BF1 too.

How so?

Sorry the delay. I was just trying it out, but I can run fine on the DX11 mode.

The ssd I use a couple of performance test to benchmark and the numbers were always super low both read and write sub-200.

I noticed copy speeds were poor as well as a couple of installs so I decided to benchmark.

What SSD is it and how full is it?

Yea I've been pretty disappointed with DX12 even on AMD where it's supposed to "shine", but all it does really is make AMD comparable to Nvidia's lower cards. I got all kinds of graphical errors on BF1, Descent Underground has a bold statement saying use DX12 at your own risk, Civ 6 just wouldn't run, and when running the Timespy benchmark it looks and runs like *** on any setup I toss at it. Garbage.

I can't remember if it was the 830's or 840's that suffered performance issue as time went on, due to a bug in the firmware with TRIM not working correctly. Are you on the latest firmware for the SSD?

Yep latest firmware. And it still has huge performance issues. Even without using the drive as an active device.

It was the 830s. Are you having actual noticeable performance issues or only on benchmarks?
