Na, Nvidia user telling thruth
Just do the Vsync Challenge
(Any notes on the specifics of the audio update, except the Dolby part? Can someone with an AVR confirm what kind of audio Windows sends if it's set to Atmos for Home Theater?)

Not AGAIN, nvidia...
How long it will take to provide a proper software to YOURS hardware (most of the time - custom designs have own "special features/benefits/horrors) ?
So many tips and tricks and tests (performed by NOT HIRED/PAYED USERS) just to be able to play (or work) without crashes, colour inaccuracy, shimmering, banding, BSOD's, freeze's, DDU, clean install OS, reinstall OS, changing cables, ports, monitor's, 3rd party software... So many permutation's/possibility's to tests... So mach time sacrificed to find ONE semi-correct/working setup for, very often ONE application... It is a Bloody Nightmare... There should be some kind of a class action lawsuit against Nvidia on behalf of their software/hardware users... For compensation for long hours of tests they are semi-forced (by Nvidia incompetence to provide stable working solution) to go through to get something to work to some degree...
Anyone else confirm?
Can confirm that installing drivers with EVGA Precision running does reduce the power target / thermal target and is the cause for the major framerate drops.
Enabling the old scaling and sharpening in 511.23 for Pascal and Maxwell cards also returns performance if scaling is enabled - https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/n...wnload-discussion.441442/page-14#post-5983437
Yes, there are always several people in the driver threads who obviously forgot to turn off their Precision X during driver install and complain and report low performance. From what I understand NV does coarse performance testing for each driver and such issues would definitely stand out.
You can move to team red if you are disappointed. And let's see what amd bring better to you that nvidia doesn't. Try it and come again to tell us how many times amd drivers suck, or are broken.
After testing several games, my conclusion is that Nvidia's claims that DLSDR is up to 2x better in performance than DSR just doesn't hold up in the real world, where the majority of people are using medium powered GPU's and PC's. Maybe at Nvidia headquarters with top of the range hardware their claims might be true. The difference I've noticed between DLDSR - DSR is +/- 5FPS.
Sounds like a you problem.
Please give us a link where NVidia stated this and where to find it.
In the real world rendering in 2.25x of native resolution will be ~2X faster than rendering in 4X of native resolution unless you're limited by something besides the GPU. You don't need any testing to arrive to this conclusion, and it just holds up nicely because, you know, physics.
Nice find man, will try this now
I been keeping eye on this thread for these drivers as I think of upgrading, are we say the low prefer and stutters happen for people having all left precision x or what ever running when installing drivers? Which would be none issue to me, seeing I dont use precsison x and when I do use MS AB it only on rare occasions like when I change drivers to make sure fps and power use is where it should be for my game that are running 60fps it is manual started. I certainly dont leave em running, at most I would have custom fan speed used that, change the speed on boot with out actual start AB and i dont even do that anymore
i found out that the new nvidia driver sets my clock core in idle to 1708MHz instead of 210 MHz that caused that my fan worked with 1000 RPM in idle and the memory temp to 68°c in idle instead of 50°c ..... the result of all was broken fps in all games and stutter
i set the 3d settings to default and power management to adaptive (then restart) to get rid of that problem and it works now.
tested even on my second system which had the same problems with the newest driver..
i rolled back to 497.29 on one system and the second system has stilll the 511.23 driver but with normal clock core now.
This is normal behavior after restarting with global set to max performance, its not new to this driver.
I haven't noticed (and RTSS graph usually is on) any more stutter than usual in the games I've been playing/testing (Fortnite, Witcher 3, Doom Eternal, Strange Brigade, Diablo 2R, Overwatch, Trine 2/4, Hitman 2, SotTR, Deathloop, Metro EE, Elex, Oblivion, Mirror's Edge, ME Catalyst, Just Cause 3, Dishonored 2, HZD, CS:GO, Risen 3, Black Mesa, Control, QII RTX, Apex Legends, The Forest...) with any driver over the last months. Many, many, many of the nightmarish performance reports with newer drivers likely must be caused by something that isn't the Nvidia driver...
For some reason, madVR is limited to 8 bit on my system since I updated to this driver (I tried to set the display properties to 10 bit to no avail and madVR reports the display mode is 12 bit). But it's still better than the stuttering I got with the previous few drivers.
I just tried it again and it indeed didn't switch to 10 bit this time. Weird.
