It was probably winsat.exe
Try to execute display calibration routine.
I've found these drivers to be better than the last WHQL with BF4. previously I could only run on high with no AA now, I can run all high with 2xAA and have the same performance, Nice! sig comp is windows 8.1
on my BF4 windows 7 install it improved also. before with 460 sli I could only run with medium settings and no AA now, I can run the same settings with 2xAA and, smooth, barely any hitching. 90% better!
nice driver NVidia
I just noticed in Metro Last Light huge difference either in ambient occlusion or shadows. I did finish the game with previous WHQLs. Now I am replaying with 332.21, and all shadows - on the walls and crates, on characters - look much more live, dynamic, pronounced. Especially it is noticeable at chapter Venice on striptease girls. Looks like AO/shadows in this game were broken with previous WHQLs.
I noticed this as well.
I think we see NEW BETA this week - before manle will be realised for BF4..
In AC4 too (I have driver quality AO enabled also through inspector.)
I recently reinstalled AC4 onto a clean drive with these drivers and win 8.1 pro (i was on the 8.1 preview before) and now my gpu is sweating a lot more holding 60fps than it did before, so I thought it was the whole reinstall thing that reduced my performance
, ..now I guess the graphics have more fidelity with the added AO and need more horsepower.
it's funny cause apart fom seeing some driver AO which I didn't remember seeing before the game also did seem like it had had a general graphics boost.
so yeah ..i'm on the quadro version btw.
These drivers seem to be a bit odd, had to reduce my overclock (first time since I had these cards), can play Tomb Raider for hours and then all of a sudden the driver will stop responding. Temps of the cards are around 60 degrees centigrade each, so its not a heat issue. Went back to the 331.82 drivers and all of a sudden these drivers do the same thing. Went back to 332.21 and now the cards seems more stable, but the clocks are still lower.
So how about the FPS/performance, did it same after you lower the clocks?
If it is, then I guess it is performance increase, and adding more load to GPU.
Rage gpu transcode benchmark runs much worse with this driver..
I use to have almost 390-400 points, now its the same like by my old yorkfield cpu ~ 191.
Has Shadowplay stopped working for anyone else?
It was working fine, but now it just enabled, flashed the screen, then disabled and remains greyed out and disabled now - no way to turn it back on
EDIT - It's just a broken lightswitch lol, you have to click it in a very specific place for it to register the click
For me 332.21 works some good than 331.82...
Dont really know, as I only got Tomb Raider a day before the 332.21 drivers were released.
So I guess it can be performance increase, based on this.
what is it? I had to force quit it one time my card was running at full for no reason.
windows experience index testing your hardware.
You can remove it from the task scheduler. Every new fresh windows install has the task installed (crappy MS) automatically, so it rans in the background.
I first noticed winsat process (as it only runs for a couple of minutes every day/week/month) when my card was stressed in what apparently should had been, an idle system since i wasnt doing anything on the pc.
I'm pretty sure I used to get around 320 megatexels/sec but now the game scores 259.
The last few sets of drivers have broken GPU Transcoding, if you have sli. There used to be a workaround, but this no longer works.
No sli profile for NFS Rivals? 1 card is downlocked and 1 card do al the work.
