    With the previous drivers hdr worked fine in doom eternal without having to turn it on in windows, with the new drivers i now get massive flickering if i don't turn on hdr in windows first when playing doom eternal so how is this a better driver after all i've seen no fps increase.

    don't bother, eternal has its own frame statistics, use it without the fps penalty that forcing RTSS will encur

    I'm not sure they are working properly. I had few stutterings, but game reported stable 60 FPS.

    I wonder how you'd achieve to make this game stutter.

    Looks like physics. If you slide on certain objects, movement becomes choppy.

    I had this driver already installed when the game launched. Originally, it wasn't flickering with HDR disabled in Windows and enabled in the game, but after the first patch (the one that removed the non-DRM .exe) it started to do so. So it doesn't appear to be a driver issue to me, but I haven't tried going back to an older driver either.

    On a side note, I really hate it when games require HDR enabled in Windows to be available in game (like RDR2 which used to be able to set it independently from HDR in Windows and then they patched it so you had to have it enabled, too).

    No timeouts will FF yet. We'll see.

    Thanks for this comparison.
    All in all, I can't see any noticeable difference, seems like pretty much everything is within the margin of error, with the avarage fps staying within 1 to 2 fps difference from either side.
    One thing that comes to my attention, and I'm not sure what this has to do with the GPU driver is that your system memory usage was lower with roughly 500mb throughout most tests... not sure what this has to do with the driver as I said but... it's there I guess...

    Thank you! It's true that this driver works fine and its performance is overall similar to the one of the two prior versions. However, as I captured some significant performance inconsistencies in terms of frame time stability in certain scenarios (DX12 and DXR) and games, I decided to continue recommending version 442.50 (.59) for Turing users. Anyway, and after all, this is only a tentative recommendation based on my own data analysis, and what ultimately counts is the experience and gaming needs of each one. :)

    Oh, do not make the mistake in thinking I do not know who you are. You have this second chance, don't screw it up.
