No issues for me with this driver so far.
Why are people with Pascal GPUs expecting these new drivers to work well with their cards? They can barely function with the Ampere GPUs, let alone with a 2 generations old architecture.... nvidia does not care about Pascal owners at this point, they want us to buy the new cards... not make them better with software improvements.
I have a GTX 1080 and I gave up on new drivers the moment Ampere arrived and all those drivers starting from that point onward (457+) were horrible: blacks screens, crashes and general instability.
The drivers before that point work ok.
Every set of drivers after 457.09 I get microstutter and it's hacking me off. Thanks Nvidia, rip us off with the 2080ti's and then make those cards worthless. Now I have a 3080 and have to keep uninstalling etc to go back to a driver that works.
I have a newly acquired, cheap Aorus Xtreme GTX 1080 Ti which worked flawlessly with the previous drivers, I'll install these and see if I get the flickers....
If your driver doesnt go on well, Install the proper chipstes for your Motherboard, Disable Windows Defender, Disable Windows search, (if you have an SSD Disable Prefetch and Superfetch) pick a proper Power Supply, a proper DOCP XML profile for RAM, disable Meltdown and Spectre Patches, and Not install Geforce Experience Bloatware. On my GTX 1080 ti Never got an issue so far since ever. Installing all the drivers from DDU on Secure Mode. And I always install Clean versions, cause Ansel bring delay so do the Telemetry that the normal driver contains.
This may be a little tricky since we likely won't have your monitor. Can you capture two dispdiag log files with your monitors connected? One with a working driver and one with todays driver installed?
Then email it to me at email@example.com along with the make and model of your monitors?
RDR2 quits to desktop as soon as the shotgun cartridges appear end on while the game loads.
However the game did a big update so am not sure whether that or the driver triggered it.
Nope, my vbios is never than this and GOP is already updated to the latest one.
460.79 brokes my DVI-I output, it is a fact.
Will do, thank you.
Working fine for me, got my highest score in Time Spy yet.
please cease this misinformation, you cause more problems than you fix with it.
what version is yours?
We can agree to disagree, as a system builder for a major company, this is always best practice, sure you don't "need" to always do that, but if you do, you will never run into problems regarding driver install... (and when I mean never, I referring to problems cause by not uninstalling old drivers first, yes other problems can arise.)
Please tell me you're joking... That you're trying to wind up people thinking they have no clue about computers.
GeForce Experience isn't "bloatware" as it's so handy for recording footage.
There should almost never be a need for ddu to run after you use the nvidia uninstaller, the few things it leaves are references to temp files, sure do it if you're moving from AMD to nvidia, but rarely is it necessary for DDU at all, also the clean install in the driver installer would have sorted out the power setting defaults changes.
Most of the issues in the thread are either ongoing issues with freesync compatibility or whatever chrome is doing wrong thus far, other then that guy playing 3dmark instead of games
Could be the CPU. Not joking. When I first got my 3080 I was close to returning it. Micro stutters galore, sometimes worse frames than my 1070ti...
Then I finally got my hands on a 5900x and now this combo is actually insane. No micro stutters and unrivaled performance.
What about Destiny2 and new reflex stutter, I have to keep it off to somewhat eliminate obvious micro stutters, loading new parts/assets of the game isn't affected and still does it (micro stutters).
I saw quite a few users reporting this issue. Bungie is also aware and they made a reporting thread about it,
but I was wondering can nvidia somehow help them make better loading transitions or what's the deal there.
I upgraded my system from ancient Haswell to newest CometLake with fast DDR4 ram
and Im still facing the same loading new parts micro stutters. The game is installed on fast sata SSD, or would pcie nvme help more by that?
No Edge issues here.
Question though, should the DirectX feature set be 12_2? Because it reports 12_1. Previous driver did as well.
I rarely seem to hit common driver issues, but 460.79 is flickering badly in WoW. Going back to the previous set.
FYI, with 460.69, Vulkan version seems to be updated to 1.2.148 from previous 1.2.141
No flickering here, I use Opera browser (which is based on Chrome).
G-Sync on, desktop set @165hz.
Now I'm going to test some games...
Will there be a CES driver like last year?
