    I think this driver crashes destiny2 again, I had like 4 crashes so far since I installed it 2days ago. I ran memtest after to double check if no errors and it passed.

    I will revert to 516.79 to see for sure. But I played a lot on those .79 and it's been fine. While now it either hangs midgame or by changing loading screen, I was playing Crucible Survival when it happened by end of the match menu, the other time it was when I transfered to helm, and it hanged ingame, had to close in taskmanager.

    Dolby vision now works ok more or less no black dropout just need alone to switch to HDR as it do not do automaticly..
    fix might be more with DV extension as it was updated 2x times in last week maybe NV enginers made MS fix it

    A few new issues officially opened by Nvidia since initial 516.94 driver release:
    • [Reallusion Hub] App will crash when launched on PC using a CPU with 32+ logical processors [3738397]
    • On rare occasion, video playback in browser may result in bugcheck code: 0x116 [3508109]
    • [Marvel Spider-Man Remastered] Cutscene edges may appear blurry when DLSS is enabled on an ultra-wide monitor [3734989]
    and a note regarding Rainbow Six Seige.

    We are receiving driver feedbacks from end users reporting that [Rainbow Six Siege] randomly freezing during gameplay. This appears to have been introduced by the latest developer game patch as users with competitor cards also mention seeing the same random game freezes.

    @valorex tagging just in case you want to add to main post

    EDIT: Added Marvel Spider-Man Remastered issue.

    Played Spider-Man for a about an hour and a half earlier today and no problems so far, haven't tried any of my other games yet. First time I used raytracing on my 3060 and didn't have any problems there either.

    From experience, trust me, better leave all by default, and try to buy the highest rig you can :)

    For people that actually know what the hell they're doing there are tons of benefits of undervolting and it has been a great solution for numerous video cards over the years I've used. Since you probably need things explained to you in detail I can give you a simple example of my 3080 TI that would drop down into the 1600s at times due to hitting the power limit. With a simple undervolt I can keep my GPU from ever dropping below 1800 and delivering better overall performance while using less power. Again this has worked perfectly on every single card I've used it on and there's absolutely no downsides to it if you know what you're doing.

    Destiny2 runs ok with 516.79 driver. Now I've played a 190min session, according to steam and all was fine.

    idk what happened, but Destiny 2 fix at 516.94 isn't working on 980ti, while all is ok at .79 hotfix.


    I dont mind will stay on this 516.79.

    Buy a 3070 TI instead of undervolting, its enough for today games at max graphics, and beyond, unless you are playing at 4k, and even if, its doing the job, i find that buying a 3080ti and undevolting it is little bit stupid, sorry :)
