    Very interested into what this could bring to the table...

    " This Game Ready Driver also includes significant DirectX 12 performance optimizations which can dramatically improve performance
    for GeForce 30 Series GPUs."

    will install these later and find out.

    Only for RTX 30 series? Nothing for the 20 series?

    How much these drivers change the comparison between, for example, a 4090 and a 3090Ti ?

    For example, in 3DMark TimeSpy:
    A 4090 MSI Suprim X is 36002
    A 3090Ti MSI Suprim X is 21737
    So a 4090 is 65% faster in 3DMark Timespy.

    Would these drivers (when used to benchmark both cards) substantially decrease the difference in percentage between a 3090Ti and a 4090?

    Installed fine, upgrade. No need for restart. Shader cache will need to rebuild.
    Martix Demo & Petra UE5 working great, some uplift noted.

    Next will be some BF2042 & FH5 as usuall.

    UPD.1
    BF2042 working great, now needs for the same FPS ~5tW less ;) (Flat line as always).

    I would love to see the actual numbers of say Who plays COD Vanguard, at 4K res, who are uber excited at this. Not to poo poo the gains they make, but i'm gonna guess the Bulk of people playing that are at most 2K res users, so they basically get diddly squat, but lets boast those numbers... :)
