    Hello, I am sure these questions have been answered before in the history of this huge post, so please forgive me in advance for asking again.

    Do these clean drivers have something one cannot do through nvslimmer?

    If not, why keep posting new clean drivers here if everyone can easily (I guess.. never done it) do the same thing through Nvslimmer? Or even manually after watching a guide?

    A response would be greatly appreciated

    It's for people who do not want to use nvslimmer or download the full-size driver first and then slim it.

    If you're happy using nvslimmer, continue doing that, as it's the same from my understand. Nothing here that's "extra".

    Huh, he just might be busy and hasn't had time to clean them. You do know there are links at the top of this forum to tools you can use to clean the drivers yourself if it is that urgent.

    He last logged in Sunday. Drivers were posted yesterday. Hold your horses or use the tools to clean them yourself. Why so pushy for taking up someone else's time to do something you can yourself?

    To do it yourself, check this out.

    What makes that different than NVCleanstall? Why does this thread have separate RTX and GTX drivers? That's 3 different options for slimming a driver seemingly with differences.

    Are there good notes anywhere for manually doing this nowadays? I remember a while back manually removing folders and having to keep an Optimus folder around for a laptop I was on, but I'm not sure if there's any up-to-date references.

    How about you don't call people that provide a free service out of their time to mod stuff for the community "lazy" because they were a day too late for your highness.

    If I was OP, I wouldn't post it for another week.

    Take your toxic comments to reddit or elsewhere. They're not welcome here.

    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?)

    https://docs.nvidia.com/rtx/ngx/pdf/Programming-Guide.pdf (NGX Features section)

    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
