    keep your eye on the memory use of the driver container service, there has been a few cases recently where this grows and grows and consumes all memory and page file.

    if it reproduces, i think @ManuelG wants kernel crash dumps from it.

    if you have still TDR crashes with fixed Pagefile settings, try Firefox 73.0b7 ( fixed a few Graphic card related crashes and Font Glitches/Artifacts )
    ( should remove nvidia Shader cache before updating to ff 73b )

    with Firefox 6x i had also tons of TDRs, in this time i have send Mozilla hundred of crash Dumps( only one or two dumps where driver related ).
    Zero Driver Crash with Firefox 7x

    I let Windows automatically configure my page file for all drives ( should be also the Default settings )

    however if you still have TDRs with firefox 73 Beta and with Default Page file settings, faulty/unstable memory can also produce strange crashes with Firefox.
    XMP Profiles above JEDEC standard(over 3200MHz-DDR4 ) can be pain sometimes

    Advanced Layers and Web Render was definitely not ready for full launch in 57.

    How those drivers are working for you guys?
    For me those and those with "CES" label for Wolf: "Yeah Dude" are not working well.
    I got stutter, and crashes in games, render times in Vegas nad Premiere went from 3min (5min file) to 40min!
    I rollback to 441.66 and everything is back to normal :)

    These drivers are weird and did give me some issues, I just decided to roll back to the 441.87 drivers, those are really smooth + they have the fps limiter from nVidia which is at the same level of RTSS and works wonderfully for most games.

    I'm not liking these either. Got odd behavior like the TDR crash, and games 'wanting to crash' where they freeze up and the sound loo-loo-loo-loo-loo-loops but then resumes. 441.87 reliably crashed Warframe. Back to 441.41 for me.

    Think it's a game bug that's been around for a while even affecting AMD GPU's unless there's two Blood and Wine specific cutscenes that bug out the game for each respective GPU vendor so I expect NVIDIA just worked around it perhaps some shader error?
    Early 2019 I think at least if not earlier.

    EDIT: Might have been earlier, actually might have been since Blood and Wine came out for that particular issue though I'm having little luck tracing the specific cutscene and when it started.
    (2018 - 2019 and then generic topics and details but that's 2015 before B&W came out for Witcher 3 so just general troubleshooting stuff.)

    EDIT: Meeting the duchess for the first time possibly, interestingly there's even reports on how the console versions can crash here.
    Wonder if that would even apply to the recent Switch port though that's not important for this PC version and bug fix here that NVIDIA must have worked around if it's the same scene.

    The issue cited was just a 100% way to reproduce it, it otherwise manifests randomly anywhere in the game.

    its just a rare issue that crept in when nvidia was tweaking the pascal assembly.

    for some reason since I updated to this driver, all the games I have tried so far keep setting my res to 5k. my desktop res is 1440p so I have no idea why it is automatically picking my highest DSR res as default. even if a game is windowed borderless mode it will show 5120x2880 as the res with no way to change it. thankfully in windowed borderless mode it is actually at 2560x1440 so it is just misreporting but in fullscreen it is at 5120x2880 just just like it shows.

    EDIT: ok it is only happening on Steam games so far. every game I have fired up on Steam which includes RE2, Terminator Resistance, Borderlands 2, Deliver Us the Moon, Alan Wake and some others all had changed my resolution to 5120x2880. all of my games on Epic store I have tried such as Borderlands 3, Metro Exodus and Control where at 2560x1440 just like they were before. very bizarre

    Good driver. First update from 416.94.
