    Damn! Never knew that. The more I find out about the game the more obvious how broken it is. From normal game mechanics to the engine itself.

    Same here, also noticed a drop in performance with these drivers and Warzone ( Latency is so much better though )

    Ppl are used to trash performance that's how.I watch apex streams/occasional comp fps game and you can tell the games are frameskipping or not as smooth as it's supposed to be.
    When your perception of whats good is low you don't know what you're missing basically.

    Is the drop in performance in every game?You would think with latency being much better you would have less "erratic frametimespikes" while playing.
    Or is it just a general drop in fps but smoother overall?

    Try with lowest texture and shadow resolution/caching and reduce the percentage value of VRAM that it allocates in the config. Temporary slowdowns often indicate VRAM pressure.

    Buy laptop with dGPU only. iGPU+dGPU combo is not good for gaming.

    By general drop I meant if you see it in every other game aswell.If its just warzone (which I dont play) I might just download the driver just for the dpc latency fix alone.Anything for less chance for frametime spikes.

    Try to run Display Driver Uninstaller in safe mode to remove all traces of the previous drivers (set the Prevent driver downloads flag all the way on the bottom of DDU settings, too), reboot and install the new driver fresh.

    Special Needs K-12, e-sport etc.

    Also got a few new Xbox series S and Logitech Adaptive Gaming Kit's
    Logitech G Adaptive Gaming Kit for the Xbox Adaptive Controller
    Big thanks to MS to get Logitech on track, can get a kit for what some charge for a single 0-1 button with a 1$ switch inside.
    Mainly used to train fine-motor control and concentration, gaming makes it feel less like work.
    The students also learn to have patience and be cooperative, some can max control 1-4 buttons.

    Does the black screen and reboot issue go away if you roll back to an earlier driver?

    Also so many people don't know how to properly configure their systems (I'm not referring the witchcraft tweaks that has ran for years) and to check for issues on their specific hardware to make sure it's fluid. Let alone the amount of stuff still to this day that they install.

    Look at all those RGB suites that's out there and all the hardware monitoring stuff that eats away on your input responses.

    We do not enable MPO in 10-bit mode at this time.

    I am not sure if I understand your question. Are you referring to the desktop resolution choices or in games?
