    Isn't Nvidia marketing working?
    Usually, they advertise xx% performance improvement in xxx game which in this case Cyberpunk 2077. They're awfully quiet. :p

    Yeah, i don't think it will be ready till 465/next year.

    Change the [.youtube] to (youtube) like so

    • (YouTube): Video playback stutters while scrolling down the YouTube page. [3129705]
    • [Notebook]: Some Pascal-based notebooks w/high refresh rate displays may randomly drop to 60Hz during gameplay. [3009452]
    • [G-Sync][Vulkan Apps]: Performance drop occurs when using G-SYNC and switching from
    • full-screen mode to windowed mode using the in-game settings. [200681477]
      • To workaround, either launch the game in windowed mode directly or disable G-SYNC.
    • [GeForce RTX 3070][Clone Mode]: When the resolution is set to 2560x1440 @ 144Hz, the performance state is stuck at maximum performance. [200678414]
    • [NVIDIA Turing or later][Windows Movies and TV Player]: When playing a 4k video in full-
    • screen mode on a 2560x1440 HDR monitor, the video extends beyond the edge of the screen.[3186830]

    Oh well, got to admit I was getting hyped by this arriving in the driver today, I guess it needs more refinement so that's fine :)

    This driver should make a fair few dx12 games get higher low and and average fps though even without Resizeable Bar support, won't be amazing changes except in some specific scenario's but you should notice them (especially in forza), especially if you're running a 3 or 5k cpu with an ampere video card.

    Good to know thanks, are there similar increases for DX11 or just DX12 specific?

    As you may or may not be able to tell from my avatar that I'm into flight sims, notably DCS World - any increases are welcomed :)

    Is there a chance for this YouTube lag to be fixed? It has been almost two months, and it still hasn't been fixed :(

    No idea sorry :(, dx12 performance issues and visual bugs has been the main focus of the changes im aware of.
    but for the ryzen issues with ampere, they were across all api's and certain games were affected more than others.


    Isn't it only occuring when you scroll while playing the video? that mini youtube player is a chrome specific monstrosity.

    Anyone install the USBC driver ?

    As just popped these on, and done the usual, custom install, untick the HDMI driver, then install, but i noticed, that where it says what version of drivers are in the new version, and what version you have on, for the USBC one, it said for my version, None, but i installed anyway, so will i get any probs ?

    Ive probably installed it before anyway, as the only one i untick when i put new drivers on, is the HDMI driver, as that keeps switching my sound over from my speakers, but then again, it said i had None for the USBC on, so pass :p

    EDIT: Cards the MSi 2070 Super Gaming X-Trio , which doesn't have USBC.

    Checked the Device Manager, and i have got Nvidias listed under the USB controllers, NVIDIA USB 3.10 eXtensible Host Controller - 1.10 (Microsoft), when i right click Props, its dated 16/11/20, and Providers Microsoft.

    Also got the NVIDIA USB Type-C Port Policy Controller, which is dated 20/09/2020, and Providers Nvidia.

    When i go into the CP, Programs and Features, Its got the Nvidia USBC listed there, and dated today for when it was installed.

    I spose it wont matter, if my card hasn't got the USBC on it, so driver shouldn't do owt :D

    Well... I don't use this "mini youtube" player. It does stutter when you scroll down the page, no matter the browser. It just makes me angry whenever I try to scroll down the page. It can also CTD my browser sometimes.

    So uhm, two new features and zero info on what they do?
    > Background Application Max Frame Rate
    I guess this drops FPS in games when you alt-tab from them? But most games already throttle by default. I suppose it's useful for borderless and such then?
    > Color Accuracy Mode
    So what's this then?

    Has anyone noticed flickering on the pages (in the lower part mostly) in Chrome with this driver?

    I run my display through my cards USB-c port, no need for nvidia usbc driver for it to work though.
