    This bit surprised me. Not that it's a huge deal, but the tray icon has been there for so long that it feels a bit weird that they just yanked it out.

    ^^^ isn't that might be good if you have less system ram... cos it will use your pc ram.

    If you're worried about an icon using too much memory in 2017 then it's time to upgrade

    It uses 748KB of RAM... But yeah, it was a bit useless for most, it was just a shortcut to simply right clicking the desktop and selecting to open the panel from there.

    I didn't read the notes and at first, so I thought it's some kind of bug (I too used the icon a lot), or that I uninstalled GeForce Experience by mistake. Turns out it was intended all along...

    Anyway, for those that want it back, there's a fix here:

    Why do we have two threads for the same driver release?

    We always do, one in the NVIDIA driver thread and then HH posts it on the Front Page too

    What's there to improve?

    Game runs good, it's a barebones UE4 game.

    Yeah, I would be astonished if the memory usage of that little system tray shortcut actually makes a difference to anyone downloading current Nvidia drivers. But I guess Nvidia just didn't want to keep it around.


    Personally, I think I'll just bite the bullet and get used to not having it. I imagine that while that workaround works fine right now, it may very well fall apart or cause strange problems later on as the pieces it interacts with continue evolving.

    I was hoping for a performance improvement somehow because despite being a UE4 game it seems pretty demanding. A minor performance boost would push it to just enough that I don't drop below 60 fps often at 1080p (I'm still not done weeping about that).

    And what do you mean barebones? I thought it uses a lot of UE4 effects?

    Control panel really sluggish for me, also getting high gpu temps.....85c compared to 65c max with previous drivers, noticed getting lot of stutter in games like grwl and f1 2017

    One should never leave that crap running anyway. It's unnecessary when you just right click to access it. Anything in the system tray uses ram for no reason. I've never ever left it there so them removing it doesn't make any difference to me.
    Why would you use SLI anyway though? It's never been much more than a gimmick and causes more problems than it solves.

    I am also getting much higher temps. i have two (2016) titan Xps on liquid. Before, they would not go above 47c OC'd to 2063.... Now they rest at 2038 and reach up to 67c in a great deal of cases....

    I've also been wondering why my GPU temps have gone up but just by ~8 degrees under load. Some days ago with the previous driver I had no such temps... Well that's rather new. Maybe it's the driver.

    Driver can't really increase GPU temp unless GPU was a bottleneck and driver increased drawcall performance or something like that.

    IF GPU is 100% maxed, no way a driver would increase the temps by 8c unless the fan curve was adjusted.

    Exactly
    Aaah cråp now that I think of it I did lower my pump speed quite a bit last weekend so that's got to be it.
