    None of the telemetry services running in the article from Major Geeks show up for me.

    My install being:
    Driver (obviously :p)
    HD Audio
    Physx
    Non-clean install

    There is a new feature in driver, apparently only for Maxwell - probably Async compute tweak, but it says it can have negative impact if game relies on sparse textures.

    [​IMG]


    Is there a list of games which use sparse textures/tiled textures?


    EDIT:


    I did I quick test and so far it runs worse with ~9fps drop on avg.

    DeusEX MD dx12, crashes with not enough resources (dx device hung) and BatmanAK physx runs the same, no fps impact, maybe 1-2fps, could be marginal error.




    Overall its very sensitive setting, don't use it globally - only for testing.

    today i decided to try the nvidia experience thing, and wow much surprised, the ease of use and commodity for my streaming needs are excellent.

    ive been alt+f10 all day today.

    These introduce annoying texture flickering in several of my games.

    Hi TJ

    Don't have installed these drivers, I'm still at 373.06 drivers as they're stable for me, but this Optimise for Compute Performance looks like for people who use Folding@home or SETI or rendering

    And this has confirmed Nvidia

    "This setting is intended to provide additional performance to non-gaming applications that use large CUDA address spaces and large amounts of GPU memory when run on graphics cards based on second-generation Maxwell GPUs. Graphics cards based on other architectures do not utilize this setting"

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    Yes we already had a big discussion in driver thread.

    Im already back to 376.09, because this 378.49 driver broke physx for me and other 980ti users.
