    From what I read it is quite serious, considering they also tried to counterattack in order to get their data back, although unsuccessfully. Lots of sensible material has been stolen from their servers...We'll see what happens next. I think they got to sort this out first.

    Nvidia themselves list this one as the latest.

    WH 3 game is already supported by this driver according to Nvidia's website.
    I hope for a hotfix or new driver witch solve the issues with this driver.

    Right now Nvidia is occupied with the data stolen by hackers, I have strong doubts that a new driver or hotfix will come out soon

    In a statement to PCMag, Bloomberg, and VideoCardz, the company says it became aware of the breach on February 23rd, and that it does “not anticipate any disruption to [its] business or our ability to serve our customers as a result of the incident.”

    would you say anything else if your company is listed on the stock market? I mean such statements are meant to keep the people calm. There is nothing wrong in doing so, but we shouldn't give too much attention to such statements.

    Someone mentioned Destiny2 HDR issues,

    today's hotfix

    HDR
    • Fixed an issue where black levels could turn grey or invert due to deprecated calibration settings not being reset for some players.

    You got it wrong there, the counterattack was an attempt to destroy the stolen data and anything else on the hackers machine, not to get the stolen data back.

    If the stolen data is very important for Nvidia (in the way of possible leaks) they most probably also hired people like Gumbo to crack it down.

    Yeah you're right, they did a counter ransomware attack. I expressed myself wrong., apologies.
    Well, considering what's going on these days, that's the least of my concerns right now.

    Played with Shadow Warrior 3 (one of the games missed this month) and I have noticed washed colors and occasional stuttering and fps drops.

    With this release with Time Spy i have worst results compared to the December's version with the same parameters due to an increase in memory and core temperatures and stuttering during the test

    Today I'll test this driver better with others games

    My PC specs are

    Asus Z690 Apex paired with a 12900k and Asus Strix GeForce RTX 3090 OC. Fresh install of Windows 11 with all updates

    No less important I own the Asus Pg279Q monitor G-SYNC native.

    Ambient temperature is 16C degrees.

    Listen to me dude, I am aware of hack attack, but has been the last 23th February, now we are almost in mid-March and a month has passed since the release of the game ready driver 511.79 which presents different issues for several users and me. I don't pretend a new version of the drivers, but I think that one hotfix is possible to release. Manuel have told me 2 weeks ago that some open issue had already been fixed
