Windows Update just pushed Nvidia Driver 421.65. Nothing about it on the Nvidia site.
Insider driver? Well perhaps not but it's a jump up from 419 so if you are on 19H1 1903 or what it will be called I wonder if it's something like AMD's 26.xx driver branch on there might be but obviously for NVIDIA GPU's here and WDDM 2.6 and the whole lot.
If not then it might be up on the Microsoft Update Catalog though knowing the branch driver version is usually easier for searching and finding the thing if it's a non-insider release driver.
EDIT: Yeah not much on there from what I'm finding.
126.96.36.1991 from January 11th and yeah 1809 and not 1903 since you can't get the insider releases from this and must use that build.
Though if it's a cab file it should be in SoftwareDistributution so it could always be uploaded from there.
Somewhere around here or that folder path at least.
Are you set to the Preview ring? this package should not be getting pushed to mainstream users, its intended for 19h1
BTW 419.35 is imminent according to latest info sometime today...
Still fishing for info on whether ark/witcher 3 pool caller bsod is resolved, past info would indicate not yet though.
Im on insider preview and was able to update to it through device manager as windows update itself failed 1 time and it wouldnt try again.
I also got the 421.35 update this morning,should i use the 419.35 instead?
I also got it via Windows Update, running Windows 10, 1903 build 18348.1.
what is your video card? PC or Mobile?
PC with GTX 760 SLI, they are dated 2/22/2019
same to me i have insider preview the last 1903/18845
today i saw 421 .65 drivers to gpu-z
Can anyone check what WDDM the driver is, out of curiosity? Should appear on GPU-Z and dxdiag both.
I saw my monitor flicker a few times earlier shortly after turning it on. Figuring it was a display driver issue, I opened Device Manager and saw that an issue was reported with the Display Driver > GTX 1080 Ti requiring a restart. On restarting everything appeared normally so I downloaded the new 419.35 driver only to discover on checking the NVIDIA control panel that driver version 421.65 had been installed without any prior consent from me. This policy of Microsoft to push display drivers to people's PC without any warning honestly annoys me; I remember in the early days of Windows 10 when I used to have games crash because Windows Update would update the display driver while I was playing the game. They really need to change this IMO but I doubt they will as Microsoft seem to be a law onto themselves these days.
26.21, eh? First WDDM 2.6 release for 19H1 it seems. I would use it over official WHQL if I were on Win10 beta unless you'll run into some weird issues with the new WDDM.
WDDM 2.5 according to DXDiag (Windows 10 Pro v1809 here by the way).
So the question is: is this driver newer than v419.35 and does it incorporate all the fixes from this driver? Or is this a pre-v419.35 release from a different branch that doesn't include the latest fixes? The problem with drivers from Windows Update is that they have no release notes so how are we supposed to know?
There are no WDDM 2.6 in 1809 so obviously it won't show 2.6 anywhere. The driver version is 188.8.131.525 though.
Well, I got the v421.65 driver update and I am on Windows 10 Pro v1809 not 19H1.
Could someone please upload this driver?
I was going to instal 419.35 but I would like to try also the 421.65 driver
For sure it must be wddm 2.6 on 19h1. Intel already also have wddm 2.6 driver on 19h1
I saw your Daz post, yeah its because you're set to preview ring, you should switch off of it, you're a windows build behind if you never got 346, you're stuck on 316, 348 is the latest.
