    Release Notes

    Image Sharpening Feature
    NVIDIA Control Panel Image sharpening controls, including GPU upscaling, are introduced in the R440 driver. Currently, the following limitations apply.

    • Scaling is not supported on MSHybrid systems.
    • Vulkan / OpenGL applications are currently not supported for sharpening.
    • HDR displays driven by pre-Turing GPUs will not support scaling.
    • Scaling will not work with VR.
    • Scaling will not work with displays using YUV420 format.
    • Scaling uses aspect ration scaling and will not use integer scaling.
    • Sharpening will not work with HDR displays.
    • GPU scaling engages when games are played only in full-screen mode, and not in windowed or borderless windowed mode.
    • Some monitors, such as R2 and R3 monitors, have a 6-tap/64-phase scaler which scales better than that offered by Turing's 5-tap/32-phase scaler.
    • To avoid accidentally triggering scaling by applications or DWM, first change to the desired (<native) resolution from the NVIDIA Control Panel and then launch the application.
    • Turing's 5-tap upscaler may not engage on certain monitors, based on the monitor's vblanktiming.
    • Turing's 5-tap upscaler may not engage if the input resolution is greater than 2560px in either the x or y dimension.
    • Scaling is turned off automatically when switching display devices.
    • "Restore Defaults" option in the control panel currently does not revert the upscaling resolution.

    thanks for the quick mirror @Hilbert Hagedoorn

    It is not a 20h1 driver.

    Vulkan / OpenGL applications are currently not supported for sharpening - too bad because this is the main point when using sharpening since ReShade doesnt support Vulkan yet....

    release blog post: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-gtx-16-series-super-game-ready-driver/
    "In addition, you can use your GPU to render at a lower resolution and scale to your monitor’s native resolution to improve performance. For instance, if you have a 2560x1440 display, but set your game resolution to 1920x1080 because the game is too demanding for your current GPU, we’ll upscale the game’s graphics to 2560x1440 using a high-quality scaler, and then add a dose of sharpening to improve clarity of upscaled images."
    "Note, on GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX 16-Series Turing architecture GPUs, scaling will leverage Turing’s new 5-tap scaling tech"

    The Image Sharpening option seems to work pretty great, at least on COD MW 2019, didn't seem to be any increase in GPU utilisation and it gives a decent sharpening effect that I'd normally have to get from Reshade for instance and take a performance hit!
    Unfortunately the sharpening didnt come out in screenshots taken with MSI Afterburner so I can't provide before and after shots.

    GTA V still not fixed? Looks like I'll have to bring over that Studio driver into the new year.

    :D ready for RDR2 with time to spare! I won't get chance to test this driver out until Thursday so if anyone install and tests kindly let me know if it works well.

    A fix for GTA will likely come from Rockstar

    Image sharpening not working on HDR monitors is a big disappointment :(
