    Installed these and they are working pretty well. I'm also using Windows 11 22H2 beta preview.
    Can't say for sure, but seems CPU usage is a bit lower in games.
    In Insurgency Sandstorm, felt like these helped keep the game at 144 fps more consistently.
    Maybe some people can confirm this, or not.

    CPU usage reporting API is bugged with 22H2, it gets reported too low.

    OK. So that's why.

    surprised there wasn't a CU this past week for 22h2 actually.

    This driver caused issues for minecraft SEUS PTGI shader (i didn't test with the other shaders tho-) and changed PCIe from x8 4.0 to x8 1.1

    (It was x8 4.0 when i installed 512.95 driver)

    EDIT: So after some researches, i found out that my bus interface is only 8x and the gen is only showing the power state. The only issue is for Minecraft now.

    I also noticed much higher framerates in BF2042 with these drivers on Win 11 build 22621 & 9900KS @ 5.1 GHz, 32GB DDR4 @ 4133 MHz and RTX 2070 @ 2055 MHz Core [edit]7990 MHz VRAM.

    I thought I was CPU limited playing at 1080p but my max fps went right up to ~175fps and averaged around ~140fps. only dipping to ~120fps in heavy firefights with 128 players.

    With previous drivers the max fps was ~150fps, so I have a bigger buffer when the frame rate dips.

    I'm about to fire up a few games to test the same OS / Driver configuration myself. Just did a clean install from the official Windows 11 22621.1 (22H2) ISO. Even without testing in any games, this build of Windows 11 is *insanely* better performing than 22000.708 (21H2).

    Holy crap.

    Much more polished, too. You know, almost like you would think the GA release would look and feel like... o_O

    Joking aside, did you "trim" the package down at all via NVCleanInstall or NVSlimmer by chance? Or just go with the default installer?

    @Tymplar I used OniKeaton's links for the installer and modded inf.

    These are some fantastic drivers, but sometime after installing these and re-enabling Driver Signature Enforcement, Windows 10 reverted to 472.12 (not sure if W11 does this or not, but I'd bet it does). I found that keeping DSE disabled prevents this from happening. Or alternatively, you could use the wushowhide tool from Microsoft to prevent specific drivers from installing and keep DSE enabled so you don't have issues with Windows updates: http://woshub.com/how-to-turn-off-automatic-driver-updates-in-windows-10/.

    Gonna try Nvcleanstall to add hardware support and report back.

    Edit: Nvcleanstall works like a charm. I highly recommend adding hardware support with this technique going forward. Also, it turns out that disabling Driver Signature Enforcement triggers a lot of Anti-Cheat software.
    I used the same card as a template to get Nvcleanstall to work with my 3060 Ti.

    Installed these on my system with a gtx 1080ti, all workls, but then Windows 11 decides to isntall a much olver driver. I tried to NVcleaninstall, but there are no hardware ids that match the card. Dont want to go the route of using group policies to block drivers. Any ideas?

    Try if you can switch again to the newer (i.e. previous) driver via device manager and see if this sticks.

    In your case, choose Quadro P6000 as your template. It shares the GP102 GPU with your 1080 Ti. Enter the four-digit device ID listed to the right of the ID section. It should state: "Installed: DEV_1B06". For others going through this process, a good rule of thumb is to research which Quadro card shares a GPU with your current card and use that as your template.

    I installed these for shizzle and gigglez and it installed ok.. used quadro m6000 template, didnt play games though, yet. Will see how it goes.


    So by default it should be better in win11 now? Or whats this win11 talk¿

    Im not interested in win11 just yet..

    22621.1 has some bugs fixed and also got a bit more polished, saying that it is insanely better is exetarating it though.
    As for the Nvidia driver I have no clue, 512.95 works well, I doubt that 516.25 is any better.

    I didn't get kicked by EAC on BF2042 for non-signed driver but decided to have a look at NVcleaninstall out of curiosity.

    I selected the template for "Quadro RTX 4000 [1EB1]" for my RTX 2070 [1F07] (even though the Quadro uses TU104 as opposed to the 2070's TU106 core) and it worked.

    The driver now states it has been digitally signed by "NVCleanstall Driver Modding Authority".

    the driver doesn't care what you select, the hardware registers in the gpu determine the path the kernel driver operates.
