    What’s New in the NVIDIA Studio Driver Version 451.77 WHQL

    NVIDIA Studio Drivers provide artists, creators and 3D developers the best performance and reliability when working with creative applications. To achieve the highest level of reliability, Studio Drivers undergo extensive testing against multi-app creator workflows and multiple revisions of the top creative applications from Adobe to Autodesk and beyond.

    Applications

    This Studio Driver provides full support for the new DirectX 12 Ultimate graphics API. This includes support for DirectX Raytracing (DXR) version 1.1 as well as support for mesh shaders, sampler feedback, and variable-rate shading (VRS). Additionally, this driver supports Hardwareaccelerated GPU Scheduling when used with the Windows 10 May 2020 Update. In addition, this driver adds support for Vulkan 1.2 as well as optimal support and bug fixes for the latest creative applications from Adobe, Autodesk, Blender, Chaos, and Corel.

    Driver shows same performance as 451.67, i.e., not as fast as pre 451 drivers in benchmarks, but very smooth gaming.
    Finally ironed out the slowdown in some areas of Metro Exodus using Ultra setting on my rig.As I suspected was due to my cpu oc or rather the LLC on the IMC and VTT...set them both to 30% and sluggish areas are gone.Looks like leaving them on Auto is equivalent to 45% or more on my board which is not enough to ensure thorough output when gaming.Benchmarks and other app performance was fine.
    So wasn't a driver issue, can feel more comfortable now going forward with future driver updates. :)

    Can you take a picture of these BIOS options or explain it clearer please? What did you set to 30%? And where are they located? I haven't been on the BIOS for a long time now, pretty sure I have LLC set, but what's with the percentages? I don't remember a percentage option for LLC.

    So far so good for me. Last 'keeper' driver for me was 442.92 Studio. Only played Warframe briefly and Silent Hill 3 so far.

    There were no changes to this driver that would have brought about this.

    @Blackfyre, snight01 - I'm on old X79.In the bios under advanced voltage configuration, I can tweak llc in percentages for imc, vtt and dram.The lower the number, the less vdroop will occur under heavy load.

    Studio Drivers are like Quadro QNF drivers, like in the description, they're tested to ensure stability in workstations.For someone to state that they're the same as a GRD, then Nvidia (according to the logic of some people) intentionally leave out the "testing for stability" part in the description for game ready drivers...liar, liar, pants on fire Nvidia (according to these people).

    Tesla drivers are basically the same, just the installer is trimmed down because most features are not needed, focus is more on compute performance.

    That's my uneducated take on it.

    Is there a non-DCH (Classic Control Panel) version of these drivers? Is there a way to convert DCH to non-DCH?

    No there isn't, the file structure is different.DCH is built for OEM distribution.There is a standard version you can download from Nvidia's site.

    When I look for 451.77 driver online all I find is the DCH version. Can you link me to the standard version?

    One snag so far. When playing an old game (Silent Hill 2 PC Enhanced) the desktop is left totally washed out and over bright when quitting the game. Have to tinker with color settings in the nvidia control panel or reboot to correct it. Now the SH2 Enhanced version does use directx 8 to directx 9 dlls/mods and such, so it's a bit "hacky", but when rolling back to 442.19 or 442.92 driver the problem does not occur.
