Im using nvidia-367 (367.57 closed drivers) from graphics-drivers ppa,
it is working great. The last time I used phoronix-test-suite program
(new version of phoronix site). A single program would crash. I do not
remember now what. And I saw a small stability problems. The letters on
the screen and the pictures seemed to be going blur. The problem was
pretty much the same as NVIDIA 349.12, 346.47 and 346.35 drivers.

Rebooting the machine fixed the problem.

Im using NVIDIA GeFORCE GTX 770 with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
