I could bet anything that Nvidia uses their own drivers to slowly but surely sabotage their own GPU's to incentives the purchase of their new ones.

One more gimping evidence NVIDIA!!!!! You will never recover your trust 20 years has fallen into mud..that game clearly favors Maxwell. Thats way to force to upgrade. What you could expect from them it is Ngreedia the way customer is meant to be played.....Kepler was downgraded for long time in drivers and tesselation has been increated in games to favors Maxwell and cripple older cards,thats how business work..and after complains NVIDIA has released W3 kepler fix driver with 10-11 more avg fps think about that gamers.....same happend on Fermi i am still forced to use old icafe 344.47 driver to gain 5-7 more fps in all games compared to latest crap drivers...one of 2 rare drivers which have true boost on my card......As soon Pascal comes to market,same with happend with Maxwell it will be gimped in games and drivers....way to be played...,,,you can see gameplays google Dzoni90 Dailymotion

AMD is much better..

Then... buy an AMD card and stop complaining?

But AMD cards as old and low-end as your GTS450 don't get updates anymore either

You said it, its ancient.

At some point cards have to go EOL otherwise the drivers and games can't be specified well enough for current product which more people own.
