    Original 'Scaling and Sharpening' with *EnableGR535"=dword:00000000*

    Benchmark results follow:

    511.23 scaling and sharpening by driver (EnableGR535=0)
    86,86,86 FPS Native Resolution, No Scaling, No Sharpen
    85,86,86 FPS Native Resolution, Scaling, No Sharpen
    101,100,101 FPS Scaled Resolution 85%, No Sharpen
    100,100,100 FPS Scaled Resolution 85%, 50% Sharpen
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvlddmkm\FTS]
    "EnableGR535"=dword:00000000
    EnableGR535=0 results in old control panel 'Scaling / Sharpening', no loss of framerate with native resolution and scaling enabled.​



    511.23 scaling and sharpening by driver (New Scaling / NIS, default EnableGR535=1)
    86,85,86 FPS Native Resolution, No Scaling, No Sharpen
    82,82,81 FPS Native Resolution, Scaling, No Sharpen
    91,91,91 FPS Scaled Resolution 85%, No Sharpen
    90,90,91 FPS Scaled Resolution 85%, 50% Sharpen
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvlddmkm\FTS]
    "EnableGR535"=dword:00000001
    Default EnableGR535=1 results in loss of framerate with native resolution and scaling enabled. Poor scaled performance when compared to old scaling / old sharpening performance.​

    Nice workaround for Pascal and Maxwell owners so the old scaling and sharpening can be used in driver sets 496.76 and above.

    i hereby confirm this thing works as before without any loss of performance... :D gonna test more games now :p
    edit : i hope there will be NO Naughty movements for later drivers...ok ? o_O

    No guarantee that this FTS key will work forever, i'd prefer it if nvidia weren't running native res through the scaler.

    You should post this in the driver thread on Nvidia forum https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforc...rce-51123-grd-feedback-thread-released-11422/

    Idk wtf is up with these drivers, but since I installed them and my system crashed,crashed and crashed. I finally used older drivers and now I can't play anything without my signal being lost. It's like my card is now garbage and I can't run any game at all for more than a few mins.

    I can watch any movie app, YouTube and stream online from streaming websites and I won't loose signal, but as soon as I load up, even the oldest game I play from time to time (9Dragons), my system either crashes or my signal goes out.

    I tested my HDMI cable with my laptop and it's been going for several hours hooked to my TV and no signal lost. I've tried other HDMI cables and same thing, system either crashes or I loose signal.

    If my card is now messed up, I can't afford a new card of any kind. I'm on a fixed income and every penny counts. I saved for 2 years to just get the ok system I have now and now my card may have taken a dump.

    Idk what's going on and I don't have another card to test with to make sure it is my card or PC to put this card in to test.

    My laptop is not good enough to run destiny 2, it's more or less, just for me me to stream with.

    Interesting stuff and this is with the improved sharpener that came with NIS I assume? Weird part is that as I showed astanyx my reg entry was for NIS enabled and it was not? hmm thanks for the testing though! Also with old sharpening controls back I do not have old scaling controls? Used to be a checkbox for scaling underneath and that's gone I know that only applies to RTX cards with the new scaling chip but thought that should be noted.

    Control, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and a couple other games refuse to stay pegged at 60 fps vsynced with random 1-4 fps drops for seemingly no reason. These games did not do this on the previous driver.

    I haven't run into any issues yet...everything is working fine...but i felt like my contrast ratio (which i never even adjusted before), felt a bit darker...
    I thought it was just the one game i was in and re-adjusted ingame settings brightness...but later another game i went into also felt a bit darker.

    This driver still has restart on open lid issue on Legion 7. Only driver that doesn't have this issue is 496.13. How long does it take NVIDIA to fix this

    Try to reset 3D settings in NVCP, then set up again :)

    Same here. It feels like contrast has been lowered down...saw it in a War Thunder as soon as I have tested it o_O

    I once more can confirm that setting the 1.78x DL DSR results in a unresponsive black screen in every single game, including desktop. This behavior is not present with the 2.25x DL. NVIDIA, we think some sorting out is in order...

    As a workaround, try to set Custom resolution (x1.78) Via CRU then restart & try again.
    don't tick Disable Full Screen Optimisations for .exe (or tick ;))

    I got another severe - and highly unusual for my stable system - bluescreen yesterday again during a BF2042 session.

    Strange error too - UNEXPECTED STORE EXCEPTION
    Previous error I never heard of either - said - QUOTA UNDERFLOW

    Ran into this video...unsure what to make of it.
    511.23 flagged as GOW driver...yet runs quiet a decent % behind older drivers

    For me in Battlefield 2042

    511.09 - 105-110fps as an average
    511.23 - 80-85fps as an average

    DL DSR not enabled

    EnableGR535=0 results in the 496.61 and older sharpener and scaler not the new NIS sharpener and scaler.

    The registry screenshot you took ( thank you ) shows EnableGR535=1 for new NIS but led to the testing. However there is a Nvidia Control Panel scaling setting that reverts to the old sharpening on some GPUs.

    This is a longshot and may not be related / can't test as I don't own a GPU that supports Integer Scaling. On the system with the scaling box missing, is Integer Scaling under Nvidia Panel > Display > Adjust Desktop Size and Position showing as enabled?

    Is there a thirdparty tool forcing driver Integer Scaling? Change to one of the other scaling modes.

    i'm not sure how you've managed what you have on your machine, theres something in a not quite correct state where the driver install is concerned, it doesn't depend on the presence of GFE, but may on nv container components (but i believe the base driver installs the ones it requires anyway)

    you should find a scene to save/load consistently and frame compare with a differencing tool, often when a old driver shows framerate improvements in a just released title vs a new driver there is something being skipped and shows up missing in differenced images.

    GPU usage is lower with the newer driver, that's why.

    You think that Nvidia can't afford to buy the games which you play?
