    What makes it different? Not really anything other than it's developed by a member here and not over at TechPowerUp. I just linked that one because it is here. RTX cleaning has separate features not available to GTX.

    I'll ask again.

    What are the RTX features of driver package?

    ...and RTX/Non-RTX contains 'nodejs'?, hardly clean? :)
    Installs fine without this BTW ;)

    PPC is USB-C driver, but I can't, for the life of me, figure out what the RTX features in package are?

    All a 'big secret' lmao :D

    This is a guess, but perhaps only some RTX cards have the USB-C port, and no GeForce ones have it? It's possible the driver does something else regardless if you use the C port on the GPU or not; maybe controlling power delivery between the GPU and C port and suspending the C port if it isn't used.

    The nodejs folder has references to NGX which is apparently what the AI part of RTX is. It's possible DLSS and RT won't work without this, or perhaps it won't be accelerated on the expected path (Tensor cores?)

    Well thank you very much my friend, I was wary, and strongly suspected, that the 'nodejs' is exactly what the RTX needs, driver wise :) I think you are very much correct on that buddy :) Thank you for the links also.

    AFAIR, the nodejs folder contains RTX-specific features related to NGX. While the drivers will install without it, features will be missing. If you don't want to use these features (or if your card doesn't support it anyway because it's a GTX card), you can remove it (or install the GTX version of the Clean drivers which don't include it), otherwise it's wise to keep it.

    i havent been around for a long time, so the latest clean versions are DCH only (?), 472.12 was the last non DCH nvidia driver, is that correct? So DCH nvidia drivers are the way to go nowadays if we want the nvidia driver to be uptodate? thx

    1.Decompress archive
    2.Delete all folders exept -> first screenshot
    3.Open setup.cfg with notepad, go to the bottom of the file, delete strings -> second screenshot
    4.save/close setup.cfg -> run install

    P.S. Forgot to mention this is for RTX cards. For GTX you may need some other folders to stay

    Thanks for update !

    Inside the setup.cfg file, you have to remove 5 lines, not 3 (for RTX and maybe GTX too)

    Is there any issue with installing RTX version on a GTX card? I have 3070 and 1050ti machines and I want to keep a single package if possible.
    Am I missing something in the RTX package which is required for the GTX card?

    Thanks for providing these updates.
