    apparently 3080s are getting lots of crashes I don't know if it's related but I often crash in Borderlands 3 with these drivers and a 1080ti I never had one in my previous 130hours so....it may be related to the drivers

    Which api are you using? Dx12 random crashes for me independent on the hardware and drivers

    I have been testing a RTX 3090 since september 17th and can see that the card clock fluctuates even with a beta shunt mod (call it beta cos clock still fluctuates and didn't touch all of the resistors, which are a lot, in the card). If the graphics load is lighter the card boosts higher with less power consumption. Those fast variations can cause unstability if in lighter passages the clock gets too high and then there is a heavier scene immediately, which doesn't allow forcing clocks down to avoid passing certain power limits. Maybe the card is not stable at higher clock when the heavier passage starts to run. Don't know for sure.

    U can take a look at my Youtube Channel, in which u can find videos of benchs and games:
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5khzv4OkE4Oq2FYRR_8hRA/videos?

    I am also seeing that RTX 3090 is a power hungry monster. The card seems stable at high clocks, even at 2205 in my Gaming OC, but needs tons of power, maybe 650-700w.

    As the cards have been populated with many resistors, I'll have to try shunting all/some of them to fully unlock the card, if it is even possible. I am meaning the typical custom, Kingpin or HOF will come fully unlocked with some special bios.

    I'd like to point out that I am using the latest Afterburner, so don't know if clock fluctuation is software caused, but doesn't seem so.

    haha NO
    unless a bunch of monkeys stole Ampere IP from nvidia, contacted their friends at Samsung and then released RTX 3090 themselves

    Great card btw

    No what???

    I got the card a week ago, u can see in my Youtube TimeSpy Extreme or TimeSpy benchs, among others with CPU-Z and GPU-Z.

    your description of Nvidia's Boost malfunctioning.

    saying that GPU and software designers who created Nvidia's Boost somehow failed to anticipate change in GPU load, and that changing electric power consumption and chip electrical limits are mystery to them, is beyond laughable

    Maybe, so u probably have a better explanation, based in your experience with the 3090, can u elaborate???

    Apart from your exquisite knowlegde, which I am waiting anxiously, would like to know if u have seen any of the videos in my Youtube...





    For those saying I dont have the card a week ago:

    explanation for WHAT? fluctuating clocks?

    READ THE FUKING MANUAL MANUEL!

    GPU designers forgetting about load changes - yeah sounds legit... jesus.




    still fighting the invisible naysayers? who's saying u dont have the card? :) [/QUOTE]

    U must be a genius, what an explanation, hope Nvidia hires u immediately...

    Laugh, laugh, laugh...


    U can't even see the posts saying I didnt have the card a week ago, again very laughable...

    dude i am not reading your weeks old posts to explain why TWICE in a row ur quoting ME when addressing supposed naysayers doubting your ownership of the card

    I even said "great card" WTF

    Thanks, all would be nice if u omitted laughable.

    Still waiting an engineer reply for requested elaboration, specially considering there are numerous reports talking about crashes and freezes in 3080's when playing...

    Its happened in the past, the fermi 560 browser crashes were mostly that very issue with voltage transitions being slower than clock shifts.

    the crashes occuring >2Ghz appears to be reference timings being too tight for the noise floor of the affected gpu's, bios fix can rectify it.

    @vmanuelgm go to nvidia forums if you want them to answer anything @ManuelG only comes over here after he's done with those forums

    Right, that's why I speculated about it. But here some folks say it is laughable...

    no repro, probably user error.

    Serious Sam 4 crashes in Vulkan due to nvoglv64.dll. I have no idea is this is bug in drivers or in game or in both. I'm just reporting it.

    I saw some posts about NVIDIA Container consuming some CPU usage. It behaves normally on my system: 2,8mb ram, 0% cpu and 0% hdd. Did a clean installation of Windows 10 20H2 19042.541 and installed the slimmed down drivers with HD Audio, PhysX plus the empty "DisplayDriverRAS.dll" to disable telemetry.

    I've got strange goings on with this driver :eek: Batman Arkam Knight Has no Smoke present from the batmobile in game or in benchmark. Hags on/off, PhysX on GPU/CPU has no effect, same results. Clean installed the driver, same result. Ghost Recon Breakpoint, Ghillie Suit Jacket Fronds completely missing. Present on ghillie trousers (my guy looks like a 'Shaved Bird' ffs) & other Items.

    Performance is stellar with this driver on my system. No issues in that department & boost clock is up on my 1080ti from 2037mhz locked/stable to 2050 stable/2067 on occasion.

    I have not rolled back for this very reason. All my other games seem to be fine & I have a lot (I hear a thousand people cry 'You wanna see MY collection!') :p.

    Jesus, even HZD is making me smile everytime I boot it up now. Maxed out at locked 60fps 5560x1440 (ingame render resolution 150%) smooth as hell. Just curious if anyone else has rendering issues of a similar nature but great performance?:cool:

    *** Update ***

    After some further investigation it seems that Ghost Recon Breakpoint has a bug that affects the TAC Vests. Certain large vests cause the adornments of the underlying garment to disappear. The fix is simply to choose another vest. Not GPU related at all...

    Which leaves me with the Arkham Knight missing smoke issue. I can not find any info corroborating what I am experiencing but given the previous issues with this games PhysX compatibility & HAGS, I am guessing that this issue is related to the recent 'Fix' that NVidia applied to the driver with regard to this game. It would appear that NVidia specific features that have a direct relation or reliance on PhysX are completely broken, hence the complete abscence of Smoke, NVidia enhanced or otherwise on my system at least. I have removed & cleaned both current PhysX system drivers & Legacy PhysX drivers (needed for some older gems) then clean installed them both & the result is the same.

    *** Update 2 ***

    After further investigation of Arkham Knight issue (PhysX) it seems that the PhysX hardware toggle in NVCP is somewhat broken. Its default setting is 'Auto' which is causing PhysX calculations to be carried out via the CPU resulting in the complete lack of Nvidia specific PhysX features in the game. Setting this toggle manually to GPU (in my case 1080ti) completely fixes the issue.

    I also have noticed a FPS/performance uplift of around 10 - 18 fps avg with smoother gameplay across many games that utilize PhysX + HAGS (on).

    In short, if you are playing games that use PhysX be sure to manually toggle it to GPU in NVCP. Better to be safe ;):cool: than sorry :eek:
