As per title the latest drivers cause issue with some 2D parts of games but not 3D.
On a few games there is severe graphical corruption on loading screens if either the GPU or Memory is overclocked at all, it doesn't affect videos or 3D rendering.
Card is normally O/C to 950 GPU/1400 RAM but with these drivers as soon as overdrive is engaged (ie either by just 1Hz) the problem occurs.
Switching back to previous drivers solves it.
It happens in a few games, but was first noticed in Dying Light on the loading screens between levels.
I haven't checked but it looks to me something like the card is being mistaking undervolted or something.
