    Adobe Lightroom 6 crashes with GPU acceleration (/GTX980)


      On my new computer LR crashes everytime I loaded "Developement" mode if GPU acceleration is enabled.

      I know that I can use LR while GPU acceleration is disabled, but I'm posting to find a way have it working as I have a rather good GPU that is supposed to work fine with LR.


      Lightroom version: 6.3 (not CC).

      GPU card: Asus Strix GTX980.

      MB: Asus Maximus VIII Extreme

      CPU: Core I7 6700


      Things I have tried include


      • Re-installing Lightroom
      • Changing different settings regarding Lightroom in NVidia control Panel (not sure which ones though).
      • Installing NVidia's latest drivers (359.06) (and had previous drivers version in November).
      • Uninstalling NVidia's drivers and re-installing NVidia's latest drivers (359.06).
      • Uninstalled two Asus "GPU tweak" utilities
      • - ...
