    Description: Geforce Clean Version GTX/RTX drivers are cleaned from all the unnecessary bloat NVIDIA has added as of late. Only the core functionality features are kept.

    All credit goes to cryohellinc. I'm just helping him to maintain the cleaning of Nvidia drivers while he's busy with real-life stuff.

    Clean GTX Version

    Clean Driver Archive
    Several clean driver versions will be kept in the archive and can be found Here
    (Kudos to @endbase for kindly sharing his storage)



    What is a Clean Driver?
    A clean version of Latest x64 drivers for Win 10, 8.1, 8, 7

    Everything removed out of the driver package except for:
    • Core Driver files
    • PhysX
    • HD Audio
    • Key RTX features (present only in Clean Driver RTX packages)


    Driver Installation
    Unzip, run setup.exe

    Attention: It is highly recommended to use Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) prior to new clean driver installation.
    Please Note: The Latest DDU versions require you to Disable your internet connection prior to its usage, once a driver is installed re-enable it.

    Why am I getting 432.00 as installed driver after finishing install? I had the same problem with the previous driver. Think I had to install 4 times before it finally worked.

    Which download link did you use? I'll double-check it.

    I can confirm that that link contains the right file. I think Windows is automatically updating your driver.
    Either you install the drivers when your PC is offline, or use DDU to prevent Windows from updating your drivers.

    You are not following the install procedure.

    Windows is automatically installing the default driver for you.
    Disconnect from the internet and only then use DDU to uninstall the driver. Restart and install the latest clean version.

    I've never had to disconnect from the internet before. Is this a recent change?

    the only change is how aggressive microsoft is in pushing drivers down WU.

    I'll make a mental to note to check the DDU option. It really ought to be on by default though.

    And I can't say I like Windows doing crap behind my back. I should be able to approve this stuff before it happens.

    Not how the world works these days I'm afraid. They know more about you then you do.
