And it is connected to my monitor with DVI cable.

I know it isn't helpful, just saying it works fine on my end.
My Sapphire RX 580 8GB also does fine, connected via DisplayPort.

You CAN use 17.5.2.
Just follow this but with 17.5.2 drivers.

Everything is excellently smooth here.

Dota 2 with Vulkan is unplayable here, pretty sad considering it went from being better than DX11 to unplayable

"Performance patch" was just pushed out yesterday. I've got worse FPS on my R9 290x with lowest settings on 900p. Tried -dx11 and it's better. Haven't tried Vulkan yet.

Honestly, I have no idea why it does that. But God forbid, I don't post about it here as some people are just itching to rip me to shreds saying it doesn't happen and the issue is non existent, and how I shouldn't be playing DX9 games in 2017, etc.

Happens in Mass Effect and Mass Effect 3.
Haven't noticed in SC2 and it's a DX9 game. I believe it's more of an issue of how WDDM2.2 handles these titles, than the driver itself. I might be wrong though. Are there similar reports in the NVIDIA subforums about WDDM 2.2 drivers?

Isn't there supposed to be a game ready driver for The Surge and Vanquish?

Not every game gets Game Ready drivers. Vanquish runs superb on current drivers, so does The Surge. Btw, The Surge sucks. It's a bit fun at the beginning, but it gets so repetitive after an hour or longer playing. I've expected so much more of that game, and I was really waiting for it to be released, but then I got dissapointed.
