    Do the DisplayDriverRAS.dll and NvidiaProfileUpdater tweaks still work with the latest DCH version?

    Can you please undecrypt the archive folders? It won't let me download the most recent archives. Much respect, you are a legend!

    Seriously clean version? All I wanted is the driver so why does it come out as 1.3GB?

    Just letting you guys know: You can further compress these drivers by ~26% by creating a .bat file with the following code and executing it in the Display.Driver folder:
    Code:
    @echo off
    expand -r *.??_
    del *.??_
    rename *.dl *.dl_
    rename *.ex *.ex_
    rename *.sy *.sy_
    rename *.bi *.bi_
    rename *.ic *.ic_
    All this does is decompress the files in this folder ending with "_" to allow for better compressibility. I used 7-Zip Ultra settings after using this method on the Clean 497.09 RTX x64 Desktop drivers and ended up with a 503 MB file. The one provided here is 682 MB.

    This doesn't affect driver installation whatsoever. I tested with DDU and installed clean.

    Feel free to use this method going forward with these releases.

    I see that there is a nodejs folder included in the notebook variation.Is this necessary to be present as all i can find searching shows Nvidia Web Helper which looks like just another form of telemetry to me.
    Can anyone clarify what exactly nodejs does. Thank you

    NVIDIA merges the desktop and notebook drivers into one driver and offers them as separate downloads. They have been doing this since Windows 10 was released in 2015 and probably before.

    If this is really the case, then moving forward I'll only be uploading the "desktop" versions for RTX and GTX

    Nice, is it possible to compress even more to reduce the .7z size?

    I always wondered what the actual differences between Desktop and laptop drivers were. I guess there was some back in the day, but the way it seems now - Nvidia has merged the branches altogether.
