    With all due respect to the OP, this is enough for me to steer clear.

    Thank you for looking into this a bit Unwinder.

    i got more TDR with this and this is supposed to prevent TDR, i don't see a 50% improvent in games/applications.

    The rest is just placebo this need in depth testing because i never had any issues with nvidia drivers so i practically don't see any improvement with this.

    LOL I just saw chatter about this on asus rog forums and was surprised there wasn't a thread over here. I'm on the same boat. Cannot see / spot any difference.

    It's the same guy who claimed to have a method of enabling G-Sync on non G-sync hardware a while back and got his blog shut down (He claimed by NVIDIA for exposing their secrets, I have my doubts), and iirc, all he managed was to get the G-sync logo to show up on non G-Sync hardware, something like that, don't think it actually worked like he claimed, can't remember 100%

    I think we all need to say well clear of this, and thanks to unwinder for chasing up this chap as in regards to Afterburner being or containing bloatware .

    Its great when we have our very own experts here at Guru3d and won't be fooled by some guys false claims and software that for all we know may be damaging in some way .

    What evidence is there that the author has "... a strong access and knowledge of the Kernel Driver/GPU and Kernel OS to understand how process are executed and what can benefit from this."

    From this I must assume he's using both Microsoft and Nvidia developer tools? Frankly the post was a long winded missive which could have been summed up in far fewer words: Trust me, but I can't really document or explain the reason and/or expect repeatable results from using this tool.

    So basically, only thing this does is adding a lot of registry entries which may or may not do anything at all?

    Is the guy whom did the Omega drivers still around? I wouldn't be surprised if these are the same tweaks :D I might dig a little more during the week, if I'm bored as hell and compare the differences.
    Obviously stuff is happening, some claim more smoothness and others get TRD etc. It feels like he's just applied all the tweaks he can find and it's having different effects on different GPU's. Perhaps that's why nVidia didn't include them, some GPU generations might have trouble and not be stable :D
    I'd stay clear of this rubbish until more is known personally. However I'm still curious, as we all love to tweak to perfection don't we?! :)

    UPDATE; Just looking at the install and it uses iscrypt.dll and shfold.dll , it looks like it's doing more than just registry tweaks... :bang: but what?!

    Nope not Omega tweaks at all. I used to have them I don't think I do anymore.

    A couple of important questions:

    * Of those registry keys, which ones are already there by default and which are new? Are those that are there by default removed when NFTools is uninstalled?

    * The author made a note that it adds an extra framebuffer into the chain, this would indeed help smooth out stuttering. Is anything else installed apart from registry entries, a driver or injector?

    * He made note that Win10 and SLI systems would benefit. Anyone noticed a difference here?

    That's very likely just the components of the packaging application he used.

    Yeah, to have that kind of access to begin with you'd actually have to pay for and license NDA protected SDKs. The NVAPI SDK that is free only has a partial amount of information when it comes to a lot of things.
