    As long as we're both pulling facts out of our ass, this is still insignificant considering the amount of people.

    I believe its linked to ongoing development of MPO's, so the same workaround of disabling the capability should stop the device resets.

    I mean unless you scored a 3080 to there's no reason to upgrade drivers just yet.

    Doom Eternal RTX drivers still need to come out and that will be the bigger release I would assume. 47X?

    So using something like the registry below should help? (just as example, this was for an old issue)

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Dwm]
    "OverlayTestMode"=dword:00000005
    Although I think using a previous driver should be the better option since from my understanding the MPO's also help upon performance.

    I also wondered about freeze/bsods.
    The latency issue should not cause those, in worst case scenario some stuttering or audio glitches.

    My pick would be either faulty power stages design (bios) :
    - noticed on my 3070 that is not perfectly stable even at factory boost of 1725MHz with the given voltage
    - adding a bit more voltage or lower some clocks fixed it
    - maybe the design ran on a "lighter" load environment at the beginning and different drivers?
    - 3080/3090 issues at launch boosting at higher clocks problems?

    Or the power draw itself:
    - my card max TGP design is 250W
    - yet in heavy games there are spikes to 320-350W (over 400W for rtx 3080) measured by igorslab
    - that could be trouble for either PSU or card power design

    Another bug I just caught playing forza horizon, it's the second game crash I get with these drivers and this time I saw why.
    My card has a linear custom profile running at 1935MHz fixed in gaming .

    For some reason this driver goes to 1950MHz and after a while crashes (normal considering my voltage is set to sustain 1935MHz.

    The 466.63 caused some games to CTD without error for me even though performance was pretty good, sometimes I even noticed a slight uplift in average FPS compared to my previous 466.11 driver. I uninstalled using DDU to make sure nothing went wrong, and reinstalled 466.63, but again CTDs without errors occurred constantly for the games I play lately which include but are not limited to: Monster Hunter World: Iceborn, Path of Exile, Frostpunk.


    Going back to 466.11 stops the CTDs altogether.


    PS: This is on a GTX1080

    theres no way to linearly lock a card to a specific voltage, it can always boost another step beyond what you expect if the criteria is met.

    Yesterday I've finished a fresh install of Win10 Pro 21H1 64bit on younger son's gaming PC (prior to that he was using Win8.1 Pro 64bit). It's a heavily OC'ed (but despite OC on the hardware side it's 100% stable thanks to insane cooling and airflow) gaming PC (CPU, 1070, RAM... even monitor is OC'ed lol) and these 466.47 you've suggested are working perfectly fine. Son tried 466.47 in number of games he plays yesterday and he's perfectly happy. Finally pushed him towards Win10, he was perfectly happy witn Win8.1 but I've just wanted him to try something new and so far he's not complaining a bit.

    Thanks for the suggestion, as it looks by the comments here we would be just wasting aour time and pulling hair with these 466.63 :) Newest doesn't meant it's the best.

    Btw swithed HAGS to ON and min.FPS went up quite a bit, nice.

    Interesting, never thought it would affect the minimum, didn't notice either since I pretty much play with locked and steady 60 fps.
    On my end using HAGS seems to be better than using Nvidia's Low Latency Mode, relation between mouse and what happens on the screen is way smoother.
    Didn't run into any issues that negatively affect gaming with HAGS enabled, even Game Mode doesn't kill anything on my end.
    Some seem to get complete opposite results though, besides running into other issues.

    Try to step down the Power Limit with 5% instead, from 100% to 95%, and see if that helps.

    Higher min.FPS is clearly visible while benching with Unigine Heaven and Valley, almost doubled. But in Superposition 1.1 all results (total score, min.FPS, max.FPS...) using HAGS ON or OFF are pretty much the same, below 0.5% difference. Son told me overally looking he noticed smoother gameplay with HAGS ON with 466.47 drivers in fast fps games he's playing (Valorant and few others...), also average fps is pretty much on par with Win8.1, that's what he said, so he decided to keep HAGS ON for now.

    Didnt't had time to check the real numbers, mainly 1% lows and 0.1% lows, in games via MSI AB/RTSS because it was too late for me.

    So far these 466.47 are keepers on his gaming PC, we'll se later this week how they'll perform on other gaming PCs in the house, all of them with Pascal based GPUs.

    There actually is using afterburner, my card never went above the frequency/voltage I set.

    This is Witcher after 10 min, notice the card sitting locked at 1935Mhz 0.925v

    Will give it a try see how it reacts to that, mine is actually set to 110% (max 115%).


    Edit: Rolled back to 466.47 stable and no fluctuation in frequency

    This actually fixes the DPC latency (8bit vs 10bit) when used in conjunction with any browser.
    It's still slightly higher than using 10bit mode but a lot better than what it was before.


    How come nobody pointed to this before?

    That curve varies with temperature. You get 1935Mhz in the range of 50-59°C (or 51-60, don't remember), but if, for whatever reason, the GPU temp is in the range of 40-49°C, you get 1950Mhz with the same voltage.
