    While Chrome hasn't been crashing for me the last little while whenever it goes to full screen video and then back to browser it never resizes the browser to its original size. Also when the monitor goes to sleep mode and comes out the same thing happens, Chrome is resized different to what I had left it. Its annoying and has happened since the last 6-7 Nvidia drivers.

    Have the same thing on Chrome on the secondary monitor, if I close a full screen YouTube video on the secondary monitor, it will ever so slightly extend into my primary monitor. Weird.

    I thought I was the only one with the Chrome issue. I was getting ready to reinstall Windows 10. When I get the issue, signing out of Windows and back in fixes the issue.
    Hopefully these new drivers will fix the issue. Been ongoing for the last few driver versions.

    At last, they fixed my issue where my monitor(freesync) had strange motion flickering after restarting or cold-booting if gsync compatible option is enabled. I don't have to turn on, then turn off and turn on again my monitor to fix that issue.

    Good fixes in this one going by the PDF notes, even some early OpenCL 2.0 support and general performance gains in many games for G-Sync users. (G-Sync bug fix? OS bug workaround??) plus the usual fixes and a smaller list of known issues. :)

    Odd to see Turing specific SLI profiles unless the earlier GPU models already had support in these games and this is some additional compatibility mode or something.

    PDF is this but I think it's listed in the main thread for this driver already but for convenience here:
    http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/418.81/418.81-win10-win8-win7-desktop-release-notes.pdf

    And then the topic thread from GeForce.om, I mainly use that to check on the latest known issues:
    https://forums.geforce.com/default/...play-driver-feedback-thread-released-2-4-19-/

    And from the PDF quoting the SLI profiles:

    And then features which is early OpenCL 2.0 support and the G-Sync performance improvements.


    And then the section of fixed issues:

    Followed by open/known issues:

    Ending with the updates from the GeForce.com forum URL.
    (Some of these are in the known issue above already like the DSR one and others are only in the PDF and not the forum topic.)


    EDIT: And yeah AMD GPU user currently but trying to keep up to date with both vendors and their drivers plus any quirks both listed and unlisted including the various known issues and other things.
    (Going to have to upgrade at some point in a year or two I expect, good to have some insight into what's going on ha ha.)

    You all need to stop using the corporate spy machine Chrome and switch to Firefox for the love of god.

    I'm one of the few who encountered the half blank screen when turning on Gsync on my freesync display,
    Glad to know they resolved the issue

    The Universal driver. If you load the DCH driver, the control panel must be downloaded from the Windows Store. This driver allows more functionality with other devices (mobile, tablet, console, Linux, etc).

    Where is the Front line V SLI Profile Manuel? I've asked in each driver discharge since BFV was discharged and NVIDIA has overlooked my inquiry. We have had SLI Profiles at Dispatch for each BF diversion in the previous 8 years..DigitalOcean SiteGround iPage..why is there no SLI Profile for BFV???
