    Same issue here today. Booted my PC up and watched few youtube vids and I got same artifacts on this driver and Windows Froze. Luckily I was able to Alt Ctrl Del and reboot windows. After reboot, nothing. This on Galax 3080 SG.

    So it seems to be a driver issue. I would hate to RMA my card in current market conditions.

    theres no driver issue that goes away with reboot.

    turn off fast startup, its just not stable on your computer for some reason.

    I am glad that I have never seen these artifacts - though my Card is a Gigabyte 3080 Gaming OC (rev. 1.0) that goes up to 94°C on the VRAM.

    @d5aqoep: did you have hardware accelleration enabled in your browser? I just wonder if this could be an issue because I have this disabled as it caused some strange issues like freezing.

    Issue can be motherboard BIOS related, encryption related etc.

    Elevated command prompt:
    Code:
     powercfg -h off 
    should disable both fast startup as hibernate.
    Quicker than navigating trough power options, besides that if there are issues with fast startup there will most probably be issues with hibercrap as well.

    To those who wonder how Astyanax came to the conclusion (since he didn't explain)
    A restart goes trough a full power cycle like a full shutdown while a shutdown with fast startup or hibernate enabled doesn't .
    I have seen plenty of systems that have issues with hibernate in one way or the other, so just turn that none domain PC off completely and wait those additional seconds for it to boot.

    I also have Gigabyte Gaming OC, just 3090 which has more memory blocks, my max memory temp. is 96*C although for most of the times it stays around 88*C to 94*C while heavy RT gaming in 4K, not too bad for a 3090 and it's memory amount I guess.
    Never saw those artifacts, and I have HW acceleration enabled in my browser

    I was having audio synch issues since the win 10 may update. Nvidia updated the audio driver at the same time. After about 30 min with local media and online media it would go out of sync. I was able to fix it by installing the previous nvidia hd audio driver through device manager.
