    Huh, when installing these drivers it's like the first time I got a Windows notification asking for PC reboot to finish the driver installation.
    I don't think I ever had that notification before when installing Nvidia drivers.

    A last!!! The Chrome tab flicker is actually gone!! Although installer didn't work on my side... Had to manually force install these drivers. But they work!

    ***Edit: scratch that.. after restarting, it's a flicker fest.

    Do you have any ETA on when there will be a driver for World of Warcraft Shadowlands that makes it stop flickering like crazy?

    Strange that I use Opera (also Chromium-based) and the flicker is gone since 461.09 drivers here... Gsync enabled on a 165hz panel...

    Clean, after DDU install time maybe??

    OMG I had stuttering and freezing issues on some windows especially VLC with anything other than the OpenGL renderer WHILE resizing them and this fixed it.

    Everyone talks about flickering and I thought this has nothing to do with my issue. Seems it totally is!

    We made a small change in this driver that solves or reduces the flicker for many users but a real fix is still being worked on.

    WOOO FINALLY a fix for the HW-accel TDRs. For the record, they are not restricted to chrome, they also happen in just about every hardware-accelerated desktop window and especially when you have multiple open
    e.g. Firefox, Anydesk, MPC-HC

    The problem always was i do not get eventlogs or dumps when they happen, so there is nothing to send to Nvidia.

    I will know by monday if it actually fixes it :)

    EDIT:
    Reddit comments say the issue persists. Not encouraging

    This driver gives me artifacts everywhere on 3080
    Rolled back, works fine now

    your overclock is unstable.

    ie, the vendor overclock is unstable.

    After switching to 3080 i noticed my chrome was flickering if i minize or resize it, or just move it from 1 screen to another.
    The weird thing is i found a fix but its retarded, i use "Rainmeter" to show my ram/cpu usage as a widget on the desktop,
    and after i installed those back after the gpu switch and windows reinstall, the flickering was gone.. Not sure how they're related.

    Egads, overclocking Ampere?

    You're better off putting a tremolo bar on a tuba.

    I do agree that modern components are not really OC friendly in a sense that they are usually already pushed to the max. But on the other hand i yet have to see an ampere card that cant do +1000 on the memory rock stable.

    Providing a bit more power to them via GeForce Experience seems like it helps particularly the 3090 but I don't know how well a manual overclock would work compared to just letting the boost algorithm scale it within it's various parameters although the memory states could be a bit more flexible if it's about these.

    Not much of a overclock though it's just adding a bit extra for the GPU to utilize before it throttles compared to modifying voltages or the clock speed or curvature for it I think is how it works now.

    As for memory flexibility well sorta, might be a bit of a range on them like on AMD as well with error correction kicking in so it runs all the way up to near maximum without artifacts but the ECC makes for limited or reduced performance gains and scaling it back instead is more gainful.
    Not sure how sensitive Ampere and GDDR6X is though AMD RDNA1 was fairly sensitive and RDNA2 while a bit better is both locked at a fairly low maximum and tends to hit ECC early on so testing is needed to confirm if it really works or not. :)

    EDIT: Actually was there even any data on that I think Micron had something like ECC but not quite the same but the available info was more limited from what I remember of trying to look it up at least.

    EDIT: Forward Error Correction.
