    It seems that the new Nvidia frame limiter is very effective in Darksiders Genesis by completely eliminating stuttering while RTSS has no effect.Control also seems much softer now with the Nvidia limiter.

    Does this driver have Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling in System>Display>Graphic Settings at bottom of screen ?

    I'm on Insider driver 445.23 with WDDM 2.7 and Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling.

    Not sure if I should install this driver.

    This driver gave me grey blocky artifacts when scrolling down through web pages. Reverting back to 441.66 resolved the problem.

    Do you mean the hud scrambles? I get this and assumed it was my overclock. Seems to happen at random.

    Not sure Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling should even be enabled right now without further testing. Mixed results.
    My personal issue that I encountered is that you cannot stream with it enabled. 70+ frames get skipped during the broadcast and to people viewing, it was a stuttering mess. Disable Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling and all is back to normal.

    Speaking of destiny2 level loading when running around, or by certain locations,.

    It was FastSync fault, now I've forced driver vsync and it has normal transition again, no micro stutter anymore.


    Edit; it's still there, but alot better.. at least it's not so distracting anymore

    i've noticed that too, they should know better than to stall while resource loading.

    I am getting crashing in Warframe with this driver. Just random crashes usually within 2-5 min of loading up the game. No event log error or anything, just game freeze.....then desktop, then crash report. Back to 441.41 and all is good. I was not using the new frame limiter, but...

    Dude I installed 445.23 insider DCH drivers and it installed the NVCP from Store automatically and without having connected an account. You're probably doing something wrong @ the guy that has the problem

    This driver caps Battlefield V FPS at 97 in my case (FPS cap enabled or disabled in Nvidia CP).

    that cap is probably coming from the game itself, because BFV resets any changes made to its profile.

    Thing is I have marked only read options in the 2 files under c:\ProgramData\Nvidia Corporation\Drs folder, so Nvidia CP should be using the forced settings. It only happens under the new Drivers, not in the previous versions.

    no cap here at 97, I set a 111 cap with GameTime.MaxVariableFps 111.000000 and get 111, I can't go much higher, it's set to fps cap in BFv game setting of 120 and I use normally a user.cfg cap of 61.
    No FPS cap set in NVCP.

    Have just tried again unticking the read only options in the files under Drs, also returned to standard settings in NVCP, still capped at 100FPS, as if the vsync was turned on. I saw this happen before and was due to Gsync misfunction under certain drivers...


    EDIT: I erased the Battlefield V folder in my documents and fixed my FPS problem.

    I don't have Gsync so I don't know, all I know is it appears to work on my system fine.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but what I noticed when I first installed a DCH version is that the Nvidia Control Panel was removed from the Windows Control Panel and is now an application separate from the Windows OS.

    My assumption from this is that Microsoft has persuaded Nvidia to remove the Nvidia Control Panel from the Windows Control Panel because, in the long term, Microsoft is working towards migrating all of the old Windows Control Panel stuff to the new Windows Settings architecture, and will eventually kill the old Windows Control Panel entirely. I have not seen this stated anywhere, like in Nvidia's DCH/Standard Display Drivers For Windows 10 FAQ; it is just what seems logical to me.
