    Download the Nvidia driver GeForce 417.21 hotfix as released by NVIDIA. It fixes a Memory Data Rate reporting issue, playing back video in Edge and a color format issue....

    Checked and i can't replicate the Edge and colour format issue, but the memory data rate issue was quite amusing to see.

    Hmm looks like it's not just going to be the PDF documentation from now on but also the GeForce forum info for known and fixed issues.

    PDF for 417.01 has this in it.

    The forums has additional info.
    https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/1080521

    Outright mentions a hotfix driver although some details could have been added in after 417.01's initial release and then info such as additional game problems including two BSOD's at that.

    Seems it's going to be best to double check and look up both sources from now on especially if the forum topic is updated with additional findings. :)

    China region for the drivers. Nvidia's doing a separate release for them for whatever reason now.

    DCH itself has something to do with them being Universal drivers being able to be tweaked modified to meet specific needs of OEMs if I am recalling right (ie region etc) ... I saw a Microsoft briefing on it somewhere... but eh goin off of memory atm

    EDIT: derp shermp Redemption80 has it posted right above me
