I'll keep it in mind.
Cant you check Event Viewer and see what exactly caused BSOD?
He wrote that it was when updating to 466.63, 466.74 has the hotfix for the DCP Watchdog Violation, seems to be related to Windows 10 MPO's as well, since using an old fix stopped black screen crashes with 466.63.
Another side effect of the registry entry is that YouTube works like it should with chromium based browsers, been checking the chromium development repository and seen that a developer has put up a fix.
My guess is, that one of Nvidia's driver developers probably tested some ideas for a fix too and forgot to remove something pre release, I might guess wrong though.
I've had DPC_WATCHDOG blue screens ever since updating to 466.63 - but I've got a 1080ti (Pascal based). I thought my OC had become unstable!
Yes, your post is, especially that end bit that has no evidence what so ever and has been disproven in countless performance analysis.
But i bet you only watch Hardware Unboxed.
OK enough of the insults.
OK , how about we talk about driver feedback again instead of all this BS which leads nowhere but a bad mood for everyone.
I'll just be honest here and say i have a feeling some bugs are destined to never be fixed, like the WoW Shadowlands flickering which has been around for a while now.
The fix has been confirmed for R470, and some other causes of flickers are being worked through in the game client for a future game patch.
is ok water under the bridge as it comes for the stfu etc , when it comes to your experience with the drivers and what you prefer there is really nothing to apologize for there , sorry from my side if it came out as too provocative .Also very glad to see that you proved completely wrong my final statement (( not everyone learns to act like an adult after all ! <---this one))
I have a gtx 1080ti and with all the recent drivers, the driver will crash at random in Forza Horizon 4 (Steam version) and F1 2020. It only has issues with DX12 games. I Ran the 3DMark DX12 stress tests for hours with no crash and a 99.1% pass rate. I have also removed drivers with DDU still same issue. I have tried with HAGS on and off, switched off Game mode, the Game bar, still always the although the crash could occur immediately or after a few mins. Event viewer shows the driver has crashed.
Do you have any video card overclocking or running afterburner with some custom settings?
Yes, I have afterburner running with a custom fan curve, I have thew FE version of the 1080Ti. There is also a mild overclock of +50 on the core, core voltage, power limit and temp limit set to max to try help things. I have been running it like this since late 2018. As i said with these settings the 3DMark Dx12 stress test passes after running for hours, unless 3DMark is not the ideal testing software
There are two ways to see if your settings affect this.
Try to add a bit more voltage to your current settings or reduce the clock a bit.
We're talking here small values like 30MHz or 15-20mV.
Save it as a new profile and see how it goes.
PS: Ideally on a FE you should run an undervolt profile to optimize consumption/cooling. You won't loose significant performance but the card will consume less and run cooler.
Yeah its been a few years since i got a cd with a gpu but they usually recommend(not demand) you use the latest driver at the time of the cards release, if its an older gen that is no longer supported then its not mandatory for the vendor to supply the latest and greatest driver.
There are no (known) issues with Forza Horizon 4's stability and the 466 drivers (on Pascal cards)
tty8k's idea is on point.
Any chance it fixes pascal cards crashing in Elite Dangerous, or am I being too hopeful here and I've got to wait for Fdev to fix it instead?
No I don't, I test them in the DX9 based racing simulation games I play.
Ah, so the usual "trust me, i experienced it" line that doesn't line up with any benchmarking done that consistently proves completely otherwise.
You have 8GB of ram and a CPU that was gimped hard by spectre mitigations, but its nvidia's fault your sims are slower.
A driver will not fix the lack of proper occlusion culling.
