    In NVCP try and change "Power management mode" from "Optimal power" to "Prefer maximum performance" in global settings and reboot. That worked for me, but core and mem clocks now not dropping to lowest values any more. I think the values were set too low and that's why flickering.

    Because of fixes for new games for example Cyberpunk 2077 which has problems with glitches with older drivers. But I understand this is hard to get for you :D

    Add me in, regarding flickering issues with my Asus 1080ti strix + LG 32gk850g 144hz Gsync monitor. Reverting to previous driver fixes this.

    The vulkan api updates are reason enough honestly.

    Manuel needs the info from his prior posts to get a matching system configured.

    dump files compress really well, so use 7z to bring it down from the several gigabytes it will likely be.

    lol, broke Cyberpunk. (forum seems to suggest it's common) only the left half of the screen is rendered in menus.

    Shadowlands. Shadow/Texture flickering on the world itself, not the HUD. Imported the profile and will check back later.

    PS:
    That "Gate" is in Bastion, not Ardenweald. :)

    On any driver later than 456.71 i lose the option for 4K 120hz with the displayport 1.4 to hdmi2.1 adapter club3d cac-1085 on a 2080ti and LG C9.

    I tried clean installs of:
    460.79
    457.51
    457.30
    457.09

    Guess I'm stuck on 456.71 for life... No cyberpunk drivers for me heh.

    Also Netflix throws a hdcp error for 4K videos on any drivers later than 446.14 with HVENC and CAC-1085.



    I mean seriously Nvidia - all these godamn software changes... just stuffing up perfectly working things.
    I mean it's only a displayport to hdmi2.1 adapter, how can it be so difficult not to break it?

    thanks, i'm not a player and the fact some bugs in this game only occur in regions that you require a sub for makes it trying for Nvidia's engineers too.

    Nvidia are not responsible for the behaviors of a converter chip that alters the behavior of the interface.

    I also have it on pretty good authority that the HDCP issues are a bug in the converters firmware.

    There is nothing "hard to get" when both my GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 have exactly the same issues with the 457+ drivers, but they don't have with all the older ones...

    It's actually a very easy choice. Would you use worse new drivers just because they are newer, if you were in my case?

    I'm sure someone like NVIDIA could get access to things from Blizzard. Its in Blizzards interest as well, afterall.

    Either way, so far it looks like the profile helped the flickering. It was pretty immediate before in certain areas with loads of shadows, which Ardenweald is one of, being a forest.

    Let me know how you get on, I was seeing some flickering as well.
    I changed a setting in the Nvidia control panel for WoW - Retail exe to set Triple Buffering as On. In-game it was already on, but the default setting in nvidia control panel is to use the global setting, which is off.

    Additionally, check wow settings for Ambient Occlusion, to make sure it's not set to FidelityFX, as we aren't AMD.

    Edit:
    Ha, timing

    @Astyanax What is set in the profile to change it? I'll download and use it either way, just curious

    In case nobody answered you:
    Your videocard has no USBC ports, but it has USBC controller.

    The triple buffering in the nvcp is for opengl only, it doesn't affect VK or D3D :(

    It turns off an optimisation that was supposed to have been fixed in r460 for this and other Dx games, I'm waiting to see if @GiveMe has flickers/crashes in Forza again now......

    I had massive flickering issues with this driver. And the explorer seems to crash all the time and repeats it

    3440x1440 (21:9 Monitor) no VRR
    RTX 2080
    5600X
    32 GB RAM
    PCIe 4.0 NVME

    Even DDU could not fix it. I had to reinstall windows. I think it might some conflict with some RGB Software (RGB Fusion)

    So I did safe mode, uninstalled, afterburner, rgb fusion, Icue and the newest windows KB4592438. But even that did not fix it, still flickering. And the windows logo (circle) seems to take his time a lot more. Desktop unusable with massive flickering and explorer.exe crashes all the time. Used DDU still the same...wtf?

    Reinstalled windows. Installed 457.51 everything fine again. Puh, that was scary as crap.

    explorer.exe crashes are a side effect of the latest cumulative update, not this driver :(
