I'm trying to update my driver but the nvidia site keeps displaying
a very old version 340 ... I'm currently running 430.39 but need
something higher than 471.41 for nvenc support.

Can anyone point me at a driver to do this - ie
windows-7 64 GTX970 later than 471.41

thanks

Just thought I'd offer some feedback since I've now used this:
Comparison of software ffmpeg and using nvenc:

Converting a HD video to MP4 and audio to AC3

Software ffmpeg:
2.0- 2.2 times playback 45 FPS
CPU temp (liquid cooled) hits 85 C sometimes more

Nvenc ffmpeg doing same:
9.2-9.6 times playback about 244 FPS
CPU reaches no more than 45-49 C
GTX970 peaks at 56 C

I so wish I knew the card could do this a long time ago.
Highly recommended to use nvenc if you can.
