    no GRD this week, maybe next week.

    For the reporters of dark youtube streaming, send feedback requesting that the primaries and matrix coefficients be changed to BT.709, the issue is a youtube h264 regression and it is purely 100% a rolling change and youtubes fault, nothing has changed on nvidia's side.

    Completely agree, they shouldn't. My full specs are in my profile, without turning this off. After watching a couple of 4K videos for example, YouTube starts becoming extremely sluggish, from scrolling through comments, to the scroll to put volume up and down reacting late to the scroll wheel on videos. I turn it off, and I can watch multiple 4K or 8K videos without any slowdowns to YouTube's website. And this happens on both Edge & Chrome. Anyway on this driver I believe I didn't even test anymore, as immediately after installing them I switched Cuda P2 state off. You just posted the new drivers from nVidia 30 minutes ago, so with those I'm going to test YouTube on Edge & Chrome without turning Cuda P2 state off first.

    Seems like every new driver brings some other problems without fixing another.
    What driver are you guys currently using? I'm still using 446.14 but I feel like Im wasting some FPS compared to the 45x.xx series

    I upgraded to 456.71 today when I upgraded to 20H2 build I have noticed my monitor no longer go to sleep and only thing I can think of that is causing this is "searchapp.exe" is always running on the gpu according to nvidia gpu activity tool. Most other apps when terminated or in suspended mode dont hit the gpu as far as i can tell.

    Anyone else notice this or is monitor sleep working for you in 20H2 build of windows? I have tried 1 ~ 30m and none of them let monitor go to sleep

    Hags is disable if it matter seeing it wasnt enable upon upgrade to 20H2 I just left it off

    I cannot reproduce this behavior on none of our Windows 10's PCs 2004 and all of them are updated to .572.

    I've search extensively for any unknown issues with 20H2 before we updated and we did not come across not even one bad review until now. All positive reviews for 20H2 update everywhere else.

    451.85 currently and 441.?? before that. Every other driver in between has given me event viewer "driver crashed and recovered" errors. A few would cause Warframe to crash/lockup every 5-10 min or so.

    I've been using this drivers since first day testing a lot of games, like Mafia definitive, Control, DBZ kakator, Apex legends, Heroes of the storm, No man's Sky. Also, changed monitor from LG 29WK600W(Gsync compatible working fine) to Asus Tuf VG32VQ and Gsync and HDR working as expected.

    Here something odd with NVCP "max frame rate" settings in per program profiles, I had 60 value set in global that I forgot about when I ran UserbenchMark run (GPU hit 60 only).
    So I set up a profile for it with a high 255 value, rerun test but it's still using global setting value.
    Per program max frame rate works fine in other programs, like Heaven, so the only difference is programs like Heaven are listed in the dropdown but UserbenchMark being portable needed to be added and pointed to make the profile.

    Edit: Looking at the process list while UserbenchMark runs and it might be that it is because it launches a bunch of child BM processes during the test.

    So now that I fiqure out my monitor isnt going to sleep when ever my ifyoo pro gaming controller is connected, which runing off xbox 360 controller for windows drivers I am left with 2 options it issue in windows 20h2 or issue in the gpu, So i gona have to wait till windows update and gpu driver updates to see if it either or. I mean nvidia driver do control part of the monitor sleep function and other half by windows. hoping its driver issue seeing another person said they had issue with monitor sleep too, For now i just live with the issue

    Other then this the switch to 20h2 and 456.71 was "relatively" painless

    unfortunately, I did at least twice (on my configs). E.g. 750ti getting on par with 660 with newer drivers. Whilst Polaris RX are ageing better after all. (I am seeing it at friends places, 1070 vs 1060 vs 580)
