    Everything is fine :p

    Driver is resetting cache -> needs rebuilding.

    UPD.1
    BF2042 working great with this one.

    Note:
    For users like me with Upgrade path (preseve settings) in Manage 3D settings please use Restore Defaults feature :) and set again.
    It really helps a lot, and performs better.

    I used that Quadro moded driver a little, it was good at first few days, but then the game started crashing - desitny2 with brocolli error (TDR), had 4-5 in total and in event viewer it said nvdkwl or whats this bs name said it was missing, then returned to official 512.95 and all was good..

    Will see how this one behaves.

    Very interesting - with the same driver I noticed similar behavior in other games, and also with the same error in event viewer.

    I was using the previous drivers with it just fine, but whatever smooths your wrinkles, I guess.

    This driver and the latest insider driver, causes issues with my Sony 77a80j , setting the TV to use VRR is the only way to not get artifacts ... this is bad... it means it will be like that for a long time till NVIDIA fixes what it broke since previous driver version (which also had issues and I had to set my TV input to DolbyVision and then back to Enhanced to get rid of the stupid driver artifacts|)

    NIS feature needs to be enhanced.
    Need some new features like color profile such as vivid, sports, cinema, dynamic contrast etc.

    4k 24/23hz 10 bits still blurry. I need to put 12 bits for workaround since a lot of driver version.
