    I installed these drivers and the flickering in word, powerpoint etc when moving the window around the screen is still an issue on these drivers. HOWEVER, I have tried the registry edit suggested by Manuel in the nvidia forums here and it has fixed the issue! I do not know what MPOs are or the potential impact this will have in games, but since I use this computer for work as well this will do nicely.

    Edge seems to hiccup a little on scrolling on some websites, so it may not fix every issue but I'm just glad to be using excel again.

    NVTOPPS does more than just enable the OC scanner, so no, it will not ever stop being copied.

    AMD doesn't use the gpu for anything that passes through a helper service, OpenCL and CUDA C are very explicit in what they can do and what they are useful for.

    read up on the nvidia policy for social media

    Then how about stop loading the OC scanner check for the unsupported GPUs every time the Nvidia container will start? I can think of a thousand way to do it.

    BTW, I remember when I had AMD, their software used a lot of the GPU, even though it is not for the task, it will still speed up the process.

    When I was testing with mandelbrott sett, with and without GPU rendering, the CPU usage went from 100% to almost 5 %, but it made navigating through the app much faster without hanging

    I really never understood the hate towards the nvcp. We all know the interface is old, so what? What will change operationally if/when it gets updated?
    You open it to mess with the settings for some hours, for a day or two, tops, close it and leave it alone for how long?
    As long as it serves for what it is supposed to do, display most driver settings and let you toggle them on and off, it's fine.

    I love the NVCPs simplicity, any reason to update from previous(not suffering any bugs) any uplift at all?

    nothing to do with the application of settings, it was literally a poorly made gpu accelerated UI that did some nasty crap with refreshing the interface near constantly.

    I have listed a number of changes in the past that would make it work better on high dpi displays and faster population of the games list (sqlite database instead of encoded text based list)

    anyone could fully replace the nvcp whenever they wanted though, that nobody has is evidence to how little care there is to change it.

    Go to the G Sync panel and point 3 - turn ON.
    They broke something and now our TV does not support G Sync by default.

    Nothing wrong NVCP imo I like the simplistiy of fact that it look like a "desktop" UI I absolutly hate the in our face huge buttons fade that start when MS decided to catter to touch/mobile and desktop at same time. . I defiantly dont like AMD current look for control panel. look like belongs on tablet or mobile device.

    my only issue with NVCP is it is so slow startup some time navigating.

    Same for MS event Viewer i have no issue iwth other then how slow it is loading info, the little tool @mbk1969 made? even load that info much faster

    I like it simple, but not small font, and list options, it would be nice make it bigger and easier to choose.

    The thing about NVCPL it is buggy, esp when choosing resolution, it is so slow, much slower than using windows settings, and make all my monitors to blink, not like in windows settings, it is immediately and only the chosen monitor will blink for a smaller amount of time to change the resolution.

    Anyone with multiple monitor has this issue?

    Hmm ...
    How much are the production costs of those cards? Less than 100 $?
    The production process is almost fully automated, isn't it?
    Well, I assume for the price point of those cards, you can expect some support and working drivers?
    Or does Jen-Hsun Huang waste all the profit on jay joe and hookers?

    And if they could stop keeping the prices of last gen cards artificially high that would be great too

    Yep,
    My kid had an AMD machine with the latest adrenaline drivers and that control panel had way too many options. Too many this and that tweaks, just too busy.
    I rather the Nvidia control panel, its simple and on my machine it opens up quick.
    It definitely does the job well.

    Damn, just as I thought I could move forward with these I've also found that Nvidia Reflex games aren't capping their fps to 97 anymore (for a 100hz display). Seems to be a reported issue regarding the no longer working frame rate lock. I'll just settle back into the 460.97 driver again.

    Anyone having whole PC crash with Vulkan games in Fullscreen mode without BSOD, logs and memory dumps? Have been happening with previous and this driver too. Examples would be Serious Sam Fusion 2017 (with Vulkan as API, of course) and Sekiro with DXVK. Both exhibit same symptoms. They can crash PC in the same spot only in Fullscreen mode, however if crashing spot is approached in Windowed mode then that spot gets fixed for Fullscreen mode for some reason. Some problem with creating cache?

    Wondering which is the best nvidia drivers for GTX1070? The lastest ones seem to be laggy for Division 2 as it seems to be optimized for RTX series.

    I too think that NVCPL design is as good as it needs to be, please dont change it to something "modern" and sluggish.

    Not sure if he is an employee or just a big fan, but I think it is a good idea for an employee to be active on a forum and connect with the end users and hear from them.

    Not to mention @Astyanax has been very helpful lots of the time and with too many likes, he got a like from me in my latest thread
