    Calling someone a "liar" is a bit much...

    I prefer the 472.12's I find them more stable, and slightly better performers compared to the latest games mainly Battlefield/Warzone

    Anyone on Windows 11? Are you guys using HAGS on or off? It's enabled by default.

    As always, you state subjective drivel as fact.

    Brightness controls broken in discrete graphics mode. Stuck on lowest brightness with no way to increase brightness. Reverting to 471.41 fixed the problem (I haven't tried any drivers more recent than that). Intel drivers up to date. Clean driver install did not help.

    I wonder the same, having it off since the issues with it started. Seems to be on by default in win11 tho.

    Some games in your bench were slightly higher while some were slightly lower. You contradicted yourself when you said performance was lower across the board.

    Pretty much. And all of the variances were close enough to be within margin of error.

    Entirely flat frame time graph in Far Cry 6 is weird too (actually impossible). So apparently something was changed between running the different games.

    So it may have just been the fresh install but this driver is giving me a much smoother Halo Infinite experience than I had on 497.09 much less stutters and was having weird texture glitches on .09 (clearing shader cache didn't fix them) and played 5 hours tonight with no issues., seems like a fine driver.

    I did a DDU install of these and Im getting huge stutters/lags in BF 2042 and Minion Masters after. Not sure why. Disabled Gsync/Vsync and didnt improve.
    Like Minion Masters pretty much freezes for several seconds.

    Guess you are just going to ignore where I called out your crap and pretend it didn't happen?

    Finally Nvidia managed to fix my resolution reset on reboot in Windows 11, on RTX 2080 S. It took a while Nvidia!

    Had some really bad stuttering on Borderland 3 with this new driver.

    Maybe it was just new driver/shaders loading or something because it cleared up after about 10 minutes.

    Still strange though as it's usually butter smooth.
