    its 90 by default, try again without the the = and anything after, its in global(no file extension) in the frame limit section and can be edited into game profiles.

    I beg your pardon. I was looking at the copy of 'global" in my Profiles folder, forgot to check for the same file name in the ProfileTemplates folder. Thanks!

    Seen a few people reporting an issue with kepler and Warzone shadows.

    Please note: This is a client specification change, not necessarily a bug, the activision developers responsible for this title have changed something about them that requires D3D11.1 hardware (That achieves a D3D12 feature level)

    This breaks Kepler in both its variants.

    Not sure if its because of this driver, it seems all my games the last few weeks minimize or goes to windowed mode about a 2-3 minutes after they start. Anyone else experience this? Going to try these new .22 hotfix drivers tonight. If i had the time id read all 9 pages to see if there are any similar situations and if there is a way to prevent it.

    If your driver isn't crashing, it sounds like some other program may be stealing their focus. Did you install any new programs or update any around the time frame this started happening?
    Also do a full malware scan.

    Anyone had issues where the output color format changes from rgb to ycbcr.

    It's not all the time, but just random.?

    It happened to me when I connected via hdmi on my samsung tv.
    Just that it was the tv that actually changed the format, saying "optimizing your display for best uhd experience" ....

    Hmm. I've not done anything like that. Just seems to happen randomly. I can tell when it's done it because some colours look too vivid and text when scrolling seems to ghost a little.

    Sometimes a simple, monitor off and back on fixes it too?

    If it happens again or becomes an issues i'll just revert back to 'use default color settings' Not sure how much of a difference 10bit/120 makes over 8bit/144 really.

    Seems more like a bandwidth limitation there (cable/port) and switches to a ycbcr compressed mode.
    10bit/120Hz QHD is close to the limits of a DP 1.2 port (or at the limit depending how resolution is computed by monitor).

    There is no difference unless you work with 10bit content (PS or AE).
    Games , desktop and all image formats are still rendered in 8bit.

    Fair enough :)

    I'll look at switching back to 8bit/144

    Not 100% sure, but isn't "Alien Isolation" the only game that supports 10-bit color? (The option is called "Deep Color" in the game's video settings.)

    It does and it can be seen on less banding (like in most 10bit scenarios).
    To be honest it could be used in more games, I know that it won't make a huge difference because all bitmaps (textures maps etc) are 8bit but at least lighting and shading would make everything look smoother.

    Any potential downsides to setting it to zero?

    The effect is very minor compared to banding introduced by games utilizing a non-optimal math format for internal render steps. Also, when you use FSE and games run in 10 bit on an 8 bit display, it automatically gets converted to 8 bit with dithering, still preventing the (minor) 8 bit banding.

    Hmm...

    Changed back to 144hz and 'Use default color settings'

    If I power off PC, then boot back up it's fine. (Uses 144hz 8bit/RGB)
    If I got to restart PC, it changes. (Uses 144/120hz 8bit/YCbCr422/YCbCr444 - Limited)

    Granted i rarely restart the PC, so it's not that much of a headache, but still?

    Edit: Will do a DDU, remove the ethernet cable and install 471.22. Start from fresh.

    Weird.
    I only encountered something similar when I was using HDMI to my TV and forcing 4k 60Hz on a poor quality cable.
    You using DP or hdmi?
    Maybe you can try 120Hz 8bit for a while, at least that shouldn't be close to port/cable limit.

    DP.

    Like I say, it only seem to happen when I've restarted the system, boot from being off is fine.

    Googled and seen a few others having this issue but no real reasoning or fix

    Did a DDU with ethernet cable out. That all went well. Loaded displaycal with the correct profile, running 8bit/144.

    Will see how this goes.

    Terrible driverse for Warzone players 471.11 (the same goes to 471.22) big fps loss with those drivers.
    466.77 give +/- 50fps compared to those two.
    Latency:
    471.11 0.12 ms
    466.77 0.05 ms.

    there are no issues with these drivers and warzone that isn't caused by the game itself.
