Is there any reason to install the DCH version instead of the standard one?
Clean and trimmed down repacked version for RTX 2xxx video cards , included graphics driver , physX , usb-c driver and NGX core

This is a performance optimized driver for 3DMarks benchmark as the optimizations for Battle Royale has carried over to all the 3DMark benchmarks also - Got a Boost of 85~100 points in Battle Royal , 3DMark Timespy and Firestrike using the same settings and tested against all the past drivers available for RTX video cards. I also got a boost in fps on the games i play FH3 , FH4 and NFSMW. Fastest drivers released so far , highly recommended for a boost in performance. Enjoy it !
Was expecting to see more than just Gsync/SLI fixes... Guess I'll be skipping this one.
Not really. You'll just have to install Nvidia Control Panel manually from the Windows Store instead.
Don't bother. Some brand new laptops are required to use DCH drivers but it will probably be years before desktop PCs need to use DCH.
OMG! This driver fixed an issue that I needed to turn off then on my monitor everytime I reboot windows or monitor goes sleep mode to get G-SYNC Compatible to work. Now I can use G-SYNC flawlessly on my 29UM68-P
if thats all you got, i think you might be missing something?
Port Royal Benchmark Adds NVIDIA DLSS For Improved Image Quality and Performance
Spoiler: fancy graph
oh i see . .
Download: 3DMark for Windows v2.8.6427 now available
Lol who cares about this benchmark.
I would rather see rtx fx and dlss in games as promised..
This driver is solid and performance seems optimal for the games i tested including R6 Siege, SOTTR, NFS Payback, BF4, BF5 & the devision DX11.
Not sure, but have there been any changes in the release dates for upcoming games? I think Metro Exdus is still on schedule for Feb. 15.
Anthem sli profile !
Have to try it in BF v
Maybe it's better than BF 1 sli bits
Edit: Anthem SLIprofile works great in Battlefield V !!
~180+ fps all the time in 3440x1440 ultrasettings 85-95% gpuload on both cards. Looks like my 7980xe @ 4600mhz is bottlenecking
Anyone tested if DSR is working with these?
I'm gonna give this driver a go though.
Wonder why it has to be asked every time a new driver released...
Why shouldnt it!?!?!
Gonna skip these anyway, wait for hotfix, lol.
DSR still isn't working on these drivers
No problem here.
There is a DSR issue with the 417.71/418.81 drivers with certain monitors. Those of us with the LG 34UC79G-B for example. Gsync works, but DSR is not functioning. ManuelG has reproduced this issue, and says on the next set of drivers/hotfix, the issue will be fixed.
1070 here, just tested these in bf v, my gpu runs 100Mhz lower at 1.9Ghz and temp is 5°C higher will test them tomorrow again and in different games. If same story will roll back
Runs the same on my 1080 compared to 416.94.
BF5 seems to run the same also, didn't noticed an increase in temps. Was just a quick round though.
For the clocks I use msi afterburner, but running firestrike gave me the impression this driver loosens the gpu clock, resulting in a slightly lower boost clock.
Just an impression though, scores in firestrike are a tad lower. But not by much.
Overall running good. Will do some more testing tomorrow.
"edit" nah, same boost clocks in BF5. Maybe after a reboot you wont have this issue. Or else use MSIAfterburner to set your clocks in a 3d profile, that runs when you fire up a game or benchmark.
Was hoping this driver release would fix the occasional dwmcore.dll crash I'm getting, but it looks like it's still present.
Maybe next release.
