Awesome thank you !
when this driver removed nvidia programs so that they would be harmed by the programs? Does the machine slow down or fall fps?
I don't understand you, I'm sorry.
is this clean version better when full version of nvidia drivers? I mean performance
It keeps less bloat on your system, less unnecessary processes run in the background which in result positively impacts latency and overall performance.
Short answer - Yes, it does improve performance. By what margin, that really depends on your system and rig.
For me, even 0.5% is already an improvement.
Besides Geforce Experience Instant Replay feature is known to "eat" up some fps across the board.
OK, very nice.
I will install a clean version in the future
- First post updated with 399.24 WHQL x64 for Win 10 / 8.1 / 8 / 7
399.07 - r396_00-312
399.24 - r399_07-8
Had my first GPU crash with these drivers. Was playing a game and got a lock up then crash to desktop. Never happened before and have played the game (Post Scriptum) and others for a long time. Installed these, started playing and within 45 mins or so this happened. Reverted back to 398.98 and no problems. Bummer. Oh, using 1080ti 8700k and latest Win10 64
Sorry to hear that, all stable here. Has to be something on your side, have you pre-cleaned using DDU before installing a new driver?
Besides sounds more like an unstable overclock if it locks up. The clean driver is same 399.24 driver, without the additional bloat added to it. Core driver files are untouched, hence why I exclude this as being the cause.
I did not use DDU. Perhaps I will try that. I've always just used the built in clean install feature within the drivers and followed the install up with a express install again after a reboot. I dont recall having this CTD. My overclock is minor and conservative and to my recollection not changed across previous drivers. Perhaps it is me or perhaps it is something in the 399.28 driver itself. Likely its on my end I suppose however, as I stated, this is the first occurrence using these drivers and shortly after the install. Now that Im back to 398.98, with the same OC settings, Im running with no problems.
Thanks for the advice however. I will look into it. Oh and thanks for the clean versions and your related efforts for us all.
In the first post there is a guide on how you can clean a driver by yourself, can be applied to any driver. Test it out.
Thank you for this. Personally, I cleaned a different driver version, just trying out different drivers to find a good one for my usage. Your tutorial helped me to clean my own driver and get rid off the bloatware! Appreciate it!
I think it is good to share this link with the people who need to compromise 'the clean state' with Geforce Experience. A little trick to bypass the forced login and telemetry. It is not ideal because GFE still needs those services running in the background though.
Thank you for sharing @ciceros , updated first post with this little tweak.
Will be handy for those especially that will have to use GFE for their RTX cards.
next release will u compress a little bit more smaller using lzma2,thanks
A picky one here!
Ok, Izma2 next time it is then.
posted in wrong thread.
There are a few extra folders in 411.63:
PPC (probably USB type C, contains: "USBC.nvi")
NGX is the new API through which you can access tensor cores on Volta and Turing.
The other two are likely related to VirtualLink output.
