    Works for me with 144Hz. Though I use a custom EDID via CRU where I deleted all but one native 1440p 144Hz mode. Because sooner or later an issue like this always pops up.

    Not sure what you mean. It was working fine before.

    A fundamentally flawed implementation that isn't coming back because of the visual artifacts it introduced.

    I dont use anything like that.

    Well, windows or Destiny2 doesn't see this "HD" resolution either, I can activate it only via nvcpl.

    I used slim version of installer, I doubt it's because of that?

    only reason i "upgraded" to a 3060 from 980ti was the shiny new toys.

    hmmmm The 2 DLDSR selections are greyed out for me. I cannot select them to try them.

    Ok, got it working. but went back to 497.29s because the 511.23s image quality was nowhere near as good. 511 details were washed out looking. The DLDSR did work for me at 144 hz btw.

    So is SSRTGI for dx11 titles only?

    Perhaps it's you who should actually look at the Prey slide?

    I just did test on my end with 466.11 drivers with DSR @ 4k, Skyrim SE with my mods rung around low 50 to mid 40's Hellblade Runs 25fps or lower, at 1080p Skyrim SE is 60fps locked and Hellblade is 60 majority of time.
    DLDSR claims same IQ better performance or better? does this mean Skyrim SE should be 60fps? and helbade at very lest 40fps? I trying to gauge if feature it worth it to me seeing I dont feel like installed new drivers if it not gona be worth it to me. seeing game i do play play as i want them.


    Any chance DLDSR cleaned up how desktop text looks verse DSR?

    1070ti and 6700k here

    I have tested this driver performance using old Unigine Haven benchmark and to my surprise results were interesting. First run of benchmark produced worst performance I had ever, but upon second run and the each subsequent, the driver performed very well. I guess shaders matter, not the case with previous drivers where subsequent runs produced similar results to the first one. Next thing to note was FPS drop on scene 7(well known bug caused by Unigine itself that occurs on every video card), here the bottom FPS was 15% higher than it has ever been before. I've rerun the test few times, with and without shaders cache, to ensure that those are real results. I've also tried Unigine Valley and also noticed ~15% FPS boost in min FPS.

    DLDSR is for RTX GPUs only. But this driver seems to work fine, so I see no reason why you couldn't update (and get the latest game profiles/optmizations).

    I think dldsr only works on rtx cards

    A thirdparty application NIS such as 'Lossless Scaling' outperforms 511.23's built in scaling / NIS on Pascal and Maxwell cards. 'Lossless Scaling' supports NIS, FSR and other scaling methods.

    511.23 no driver scaling / no driver sharpen. Scaling and sharpening performed by Lossless Scaling NIS mode
    96,95,95 FPS Scaled Resolution 85% with default sharpen


    511.23 scaling and sharpening by driver (New Scaling / NIS)
    90,90,91 FPS Scaled Resolution 85%, 50% Sharpen


    471.96 scaling and sharpening by driver (Old Scaling / Sharpening) for reference
    100,100,101 FPS Scaled Resolution 85%, 50% Sharpen​

    Something is very wrong if a thirdparty application's NIS mode outperforms the built in 511.23 driver NIS

    @ManuelG

    EDIT: To be clear, 'Lossless Scaling' uses the official 'NVIDIA Image Scaling platform-agnostic open source SDK' for NIS support.

    The NVIDIA Image Scaling SDK provides a single spatial scaling and sharpening algorithm for cross-platform support. The scaling algorithm uses a 6-tap scaling filter combined with 4 directional scaling and adaptive sharpening filters, which creates nice smooth images and sharp edges. In addition, the SDK provides a state-of-the-art adaptive directional sharpening algorithm for use in applications where no scaling is required - https://github.com/NVIDIAGameWorks/NVIDIAImageScaling

    clean install driver with DDU, confirmed fix on reddit.

    same user has narrowed it down to a disabled overlay, i'm confirming wtf overlay they mean.

    No they don't, some people just assume so looking at a static image taken in game between native, 4X DSR and 2.25X DLDSR, it isn't even mentioned which GPU they used besides that the native resolution used is 1080p.
    What Nvidia does claim is, that 2.25X gives about the same image quality as 4X DSR with a natural lower performance penalty.
    By pure logic 2.25X requires less than 4X, hence why 2.25X DSR and 2.25X DLDSR have about the same performance penalty, but according to Nvidia's claim 2.25X DLDSR should look better.
    Don't really get what's so hard to understand.

    To me it looks more like a feature for 1080p users (DLDSR), if you run on a 2k 165Hz screen to push 5k+ 165Hz scaled you need a premium screen that supports that bandwidth (I think DP 1.4+ or better).
    Otherwise what's the point running it at 60Hz.

    It's not like I would actually use it but why can't (DL)DSR downscale from 8k for 4k screens? (I am just a bit curious how bad it looks like.)

    The problem is that on a 1440 monitor DLDSR looks exactly like legacy 2.25x with exactly the same performance, so what's different about it?
