    This new Game Ready Driver provides the best day-1 gaming experience for the latest new tittles including GTFO as well as the latest update for Horizon Zero Dawn which utilizes NVIDIA DLSS to improve performance by up to 50%.

    Fixed Issues in this Release
    - [Microsoft Flight Simulator]: The game may crash to the desktop during gameplay. [3454519]
    - [Microsoft Flight Simulator]: Purple/blue artifacts appear on ground textures in the game. [3454530]
    - [Supreme Command:Forged Alliance/Supreme Commander 2]: Performance drop occurs when there is mouse movement. [3405920]
    - Desktop may stutter after extended period when mouse cursor is moved. [3443235]
    - In multi-monitor configurations, the screen may display random black screen flicker. [3405228] This is not fixed. NVIDIA - We just fixed this issue and it will be in our next Game Ready Driver in early January.
    - [NVIDIA Control Panel]: Spelling error in the German language NVIDIA Control Panel -> Manage 3D Settings -> Shader Cache Size default option. [3442310]

    Windows 10/11 Issues
    - [Deathloop][HDR]: TDR/corruption occurs in the game with Windows HDR enabled. [200767905] If this issue occurs, toggle the Windows HDR setting.
    - Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed may crash on courses where players drive through water. [3338967]
    - [HDR][G-Sync]: Mouse pointer gets stuck after turning on HDR from the Windows Control Panel or after toggling G-Sync from the NVIDIA control panel. [200762998] To work around, click the mouse (right or left button). The mouse cursor will be sluggish for a few seconds before returning to normal operation.
    - [NVIDIA Advanced Optimus][NVIDIA Control Panel]: After setting the display multiplexer type to “dGPU”, the setting is not preserved across a reboot or resume from S4. [200779758]
    - [NVIDIA Image Scaling][Desktop]: The screen moves to the upper left corner on cold boot when Image Scaling is applied to the desktop. [3424721] Do not apply NVIDIA Image Scaling to the desktop. It is intended only for video upscaling or for games which do not run with a scaling resolution unless the same Image Scaling resolution is applied on the desktop.
    - [NVIDIA Image Scaling][DirectX 11 video apps]: With Image Scaling enabled, video playback is corrupted or results in a system hang after performing an HDR transition. [3431284] If HDR is required to be toggled from the Microsoft Control Panel, be sure to switch to a different Image Scaling resolution.

    No changes to NIS? Sigh...
    If that ain't happening, can we at least get another option with old sharpening and scaling back? It's still in the drivers anyway, apparently.

    Some nice fixes.

    But madVR/mpv stutter with MPO enabled is still unchanged. Could also reproduce it on an entirely different system, I suppose lots of people are affected without having really noticed yet.
    Unfortunately, disabling MPO leads to annoying temporary losses of display signal with Gsync compatible enabled. E.g. happens with streaming apps like Amazon, Netflix or Disney+, there is an annoying transition with short signal loss then when entering fullscreen. Really hope Nvidia can sort this out...

    Edit: That loss of signal issue btw. also occurs with Nvidia Image Scaling enabled (and MPO setting restored to default in registry), so I think it really turns off MPO.

    Driver has broken freesync compatibility as in the settings no longer show in control panel

    EDIT* The install had somehow turned it off on my monitor so false alarm

    So MPO causing stutter in games still a thing?
    Also out of curiosity is it just VR games or do you notice it in normal games too?

    I don't know about games, but madVR/mpv are video players/renderers. They have some stats that inform you when frames aren't presented as well as they should be.

    Yes, I saw it in the official PDF as well, I think NVIDIA patched the patchnotes right after release :)
