    "Clearly, money isn't an issue here, in that case why not get a Solid 1440p monitor?"

    I`m waiting for the ASUS ROG Swift PG35VQ to be released.
    35-inch UWQHD (3440 x 1440) ROG Swift PG35VQ Gaming Monitor - 35 inch, Ultra-WQHD, HDR, 21:9 Curved, 200Hz, G-SYNC™

    This should solve my DLSS issue ;p But boyos is Asus taking their freaking time releasing this monitor. Prolly won`t see a release till Summer.

    I've read the first post in this thread and I've understood what to remove from the installation kit and "This simple process will keep your system free of unnecessary Nvidia driver bloatware."

    Ok but why ? for free space ? what harm can that bloatware have ? I'm mean is something measurable ? I'm really trying to understand this so don't jump on my head and tell me to read something elsewhere please just explain.

    It has been answered a dozen times already - clean drivers exclude bloatware such as telemetry, unnecessary data collection services, gfe services, auto-update services e.t.c.

    Clean drivers include only the bare minimum core features, necessary to run the driver. Hence there are GTX/RTX versions.
    Regarding how impactful they are on your system - depends on the system. I follow a simple logic - less is more. I don't like trash on my PC, and I like to keep it clean.
    In order to measure it, run benchmarks of your choice before/after and compare the values. But don't expect it to give you +100 fps more out of the blue.

    Well, there is a guide in the OP on how you can do it yourself. The whole process is really simple.

    In any case, later on, today expect a clean version.

    Taken from literally the first post:

    Everything removed except:
    • Core Driver files
    • PhysX
    • HD Audio
    • Key RTX features (RTX drivers only)

    That plus they are smaller in size so people like me that have slow crappy internet can get them a bit faster.

    Latest clean version will be uploaded later on today.

    Question: Now that GTX card support RTX features, I would like to ask how you guys wish to see new driver releases from now on:

    a) Merge GTX/RTX drivers onto one as it will work both for GTX series and RTX.
    b) Do the Above + provide a Bare Bones version of the driver without any RTX features at all.

    Please let me know.
