    Objective benchmark analysis of drivers from 442.59 to 516.94 using custom spreadsheet I originally created to objectively analyse raw benchmark data for personal use (see NOTE in footer).

    Raw benchmark data on the left is from historical and recent posts by LokkenJP over on Reddit (1070ti GPU, i7 4790K CPU, Windows 10). As with all data, results are system dependent and can be used as a general guide only.

    Summary columns to the right automatically and objectively highlight the highest performing driver for a given category (FPS, frametimes AVG 1% 0.1%) in the games tested. Each driver is given a point / score based on how many times it is automatically selected as the highest performing for a given game and category. (see NOTE in footer).

    [​IMG]

    NOTE: Spreadsheet 'summary' columns on the right automatically select the highest performing driver for each game in each of the 4 categories ( FPS, frametimes AVG 1% 0.1% ). If a category result 'matches' across multiple drivers the higher driver number in the result is selected e.g. if 442.49 and 516.94 have matching FPS results then 516.94 is selected in the 'summary' list.

    Drivers with an overall score of 0 will not appear under the 'Score' summary section unless it is the latest driver. All drivers with a score of 1 or above are shown in the 'Score' summary section in order of highest overall score to lowest overall score.

    FPS figure is the MEDIAN from the 3 raw benchmark data points.

    EDIT: @PapaJohn A supplemental Ampere version with modern games analysed can be found at https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/n...wnload-discussion.444130/page-10#post-6043377

    indeed

    what actually happened was that leaked information about sku tuning periods is unreliable and not cor-relatable to final sku configuration.

    and the final specs aren't locked in yet.

    Good driver, works well with both my RX2070 and 2080Ti in all games I played.

    Why are you doing pages of analysis for each driver, I'm sure even Nvidia isn't trying so hard :)

    Why do you care if someone does something he likes to do?

    in directx12 games, the stripes are flickering if in the nvidia settings, vertical synchronization in the position is on or fast
    also some games do not start, for example dying light 2

    I would say if you are going to do this at least have a wide and varied selection of games using all of the different engines available.

    The analysis was purely for personal use, has been since 442.59 over two years ago and only started posting it publicly here when 511.23 was released in January 2022.

    Will leave other users such as yourself to post analysis / collate the benchmarks across generations of drivers with more suitable games and engines :)

    Thanks for the feedback / understood, I'll not post the analysis again in future as it's not useful.

    and the haters gonna hate, hate, hate... just shake it off!

    Personally, I find it interesting, but then I'm an engineer and do things very much like that myself.

    Dying light 2 does start without issues. It actually runs great with this driver.
