    I wonder if these improve BFV with Ray Tracing or improve any frames in anything in the RTX series. This is when driver updates are exciting for me. When new hardware is released and the drivers slowly add a few more frames to the hardware as it's understood.

    I update graphic drivers only when I buy a new graphically demanding game just before I start it.

    "Optimized" drivers for Darksiders 3
    Take a look:
    "For what it’s worth, we’ve re-tested Darksiders 3 in 4K on our RTX2080Ti with this new driver and performance remained the same.
    There were still drops to 45-55fps and the only way we could improve performance was by lowering the Shadows from Epic to High (there were still drops below 60fps though)" -DSOG

    It feels to me that, in general, drivers released "specially" for a new game don't often do much. Yes, there are edge cases where an old driver has glitches or lower performance, but it seems more like a way to further lock people into your ecosystem along with testing out what kinds of bloat/telemetry people will put up with.

    What can I say, I'm a bit jaded having a Pascal GPU and wanting to play Gears of War 4 with my friend.

    You are assuming they used the same test rig as you. I am sure NVidia's rig is just a bit better than yours.:D

    looks like Hilbert copied the flavour text from the previous driver.

    No, rather what happened is that the Range setting is broken so your TV is receiving Full Range when it needs to be Limited.

    you might be able to change it in the tv, but some consoles don't like full range either.

    Got a Bsod in Assassins Creed Odyssey with these, first crash in over 100 hours of play and the only thing that's different is these drivers, rolling back for now also got blackscreens after monitors wake from sleep, bit of a waste of time installing for me, oh well worth a try.

    Most of the time, the idiot-producers are only faking - it's just the renaming of their driver(s) in order to make an illusion of taking care of their clients. Much like rebranding their hardware.

    Manuel has reproduced this on only a 4k display, is yours a native 4k display?
