    If I read it correctly it will come as an update within the next 24 hours. Maybe winupdate?

    I tried these yesterday and got a driver crash, first crash in over 6 months.
    470.25 are very good.

    Got it again in a different game, Battlefield 1, now it says I need minimum 1024MB video memory.
    I also got texture flickering all over the place in many games.

    I'm starting to think this BAR was all poop and shite and doesn't even work right.
    Plus nvidia drivers and windows updates in past few months was all bollocks only issues.

    Should work fine especially for how much money people forked for their fecking cards.

    If you are not using muli displays then I wouldn't worry about it and if you are WU will fix it one way or another (either rollback or update).
    That is the way I read the issues.

    Blech. Gaming on the bleeding edge has *never* been more of a pain in the asshole. The issues being discussed over the last handful of pages are only the beginning. Windows has also forced compliance with 'newer' microcode to match what is in the 'newest' mainboard BIOS releases. That's great, except it is WAY slower than the BE code. Yes, you can partially undo updates and then shadow block the offending code, but... I give up, I just want to play games. For the meantime I'm just dropping things to 1440p in any serious game. I don't even bother trying to use VR, it sounds like it is *still* broken - for almost a year now? I don't even want to do a deep dive, especially into the horrors that is the nvidia forums, but can you even fix that issue by completely obliterating all tweak software?

    Who cares about HAGS and Re-Bar when Nvidia and Windows are in an arms race to see who can damage our gaming experience the most? I have been gaming since a PET 2001, so i know all about early adopter tax - but we should be past that by now. I don't have time to spend countless hours just keeping up on how to maintain a decent framerate in game X, when I have enough processing power to run the Matrix. When mouse and GPU drivers have forced telemetry on top of the 200 IP's Bill Gates pokes at me with...

    Out of curiosity If I click "enable logging" it says additional logging has been enabled.Reading the pdf it says you need capture ETW not "enable logging" did I mess up or something?What does "additional logging enabled" mean?

    I also tried again playing wow and got the warning again twice.Happens around the 3 min-5min mark.Don't think the logger can log 5 straight minutes.

    Should I keep using it latencymon?You said dpc latency while gaming shouldn't count but other drivers triggers latencymon less in the same scenario.

    Hey Kman haven't really tested to be honest, but haven't had any noticable problems with this driver. No sound stutter or anything!

    MS has released a Known Issue Rollback for 19042.928 and 19041.928
    If 1837593227 exists under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\FeatureManagement\Overrides\4\ it's deployed and takes out the code causing the issue while rest of the update is intact.

    Checking LatencyMon just on that page is generally a bad idea, can't remember where but it has a way more detailed log that might show that something else is the root cause of nvlddmkm.sys spiking like that.
    I had a similar issue years ago where the root actually was a NIC, once removed everything worked fine.

    You mean like the stats page?You reckon something is spiking at the same time triggering nvlddmkm.sys?
    So I could tell if it was something else if I see another process spiking right?i need to keep tab for next time.

    Also,if the issue was something else wouldn't it also show on other drivers?Driver 457.51 doesnt get this.


    Here is 466.11

    Theoretical it should with other drivers too.
    Do you only see this with WoW? Retail?

    Undervolt with a custom curve. I've got mine set at 1920MHz/900mV and +400MHz on the memory, though I've still to test the memory overclock. CP2077 with everything maxed including RT Psycho was a good test of stability.
