    Is this a driver issue or was the problem with Windows / MPO?

    It's a shame that this and the WoW Shadowlands bug are still here though.

    I'm installing this for security fixes since 466.11 version

    Don't have an RTX card, so can't play Enhanced Metro Exodus :(

    Yes, that's what it means in practice.

    I got a Memory Management BSOD right after installing these and the NVidia control panel didnt appear in the context menu
    With the last set of drivers the scaling has been massively broken and Windows and nvidia tell me the recommended res for my 8k TV is 1080p

    This driver and last I get an error in most games that I need a DX11 capable card. I have to use 470.25 drivers. I've done a clean install of OS and drivers to try to fix and nothing.

    This could also be a cable issue if you really have an 8k TV. Try another Ultra High Speed HDMI cable if possible.

    Amazing how the Batman issue is still not fixed, an Nvidia feature that was bragged about years ago now remains broken, and after months remains broken.

    Indeed, on would think that Nvidia specific features keep working regardless of driver updates.
    But guess the driver devs are more focused around a mediocre RT experience than keeping their old code working, and yet people claim that AMD drivers are worse lol.

    I believe this is a platform specific issue (Lenovo notebooks?)

    It's partially a client issue, the game is writing into and trying to execute in a non-executable region.

    Chrome/Edge 92 has a fix for this, you can try it on Canary if you like.


    Such bsods are not caused by the incoming driver, but corruption already present in a rarely touched area of kernel memory caused by certain utilities on the older drivers.

    displaycal and f.lux are potential offenders, i looked at another uses dump file recently but it was an incomplete dump and was missing a number of "pages" relevant to the crash, so nvidia will need full size kernel dumps to look into it.

    so what's the performance hit of the security mitigations? or no hit?

    Odd how it worked until a Nvidia driver broke something, the game has been updated in years

    Sometimes you can "try catch" a memory exception, so long as doing so isn't exposing a security vulnerability, the games still playable, with windows No Execute protection fully disabled.

    PS: the physx runtime where the crash occurs was never updated between the game working and not working either.

    turbulence smoke works in game btw, its just the benchmark that crashes from my experience.

    @ManuelG are you kidding me?

    AOC 24G2W1G8 now is officially g-sync compatible but my AOC 24G2W1G4 isn't?

    Can you please do something about it. They are the same monitors after all.
