    I just found out that there is a bug in drivers that causes screen to monetarily switch off when using alt-tab while DSC is in use. And this was reported 4 months ago. Why it still exists?

    working fine to me, i use hags on, vrr on, low latency in ultra setting, and my card goes to idle clock, 0% usage, all normal when i close any game and back to windows

    but with 522.25 i do 162fps in avg on f1 22, now i do 150fps in avg, but ok

    Nvidia really took their sweet time, but apparently NIS can now be enabled separately for apps instead of globally. Global NIS also does a GPU driver restart now or something when toggled on/off.
    Noticed some fun behavior too, when NIS is enabled in any game profile then all its custom resolutions are added to the system resolution list. Was it really that hard to code a "GPU scaling" checkbox that adds those custom resolutions to the system list?
    You know, just like the previous iteration of image scaling had. Can't have that because reasons, but you can get those resolutions back by enabling NIS in some random application...
    Some of the choices Nvidia makes are really baffling.

    There seems to be an error with this driver that is causing the clocks to not clock down to idle,

    DWM.exe seems to be the culprit that is not allowing the 3d engine to clock down to idle. I initially thought is was malware but have scanned with MB and my BitDefender also says clean, however you can see in Task Manager 100 % usage of the 3d engine being used by DWM.exe drilling down into the process (process explorer) there does seem to be lots of threads in a waiting state with billions of cyles. PC uptime is 17hrs

    Im afraid thats where my knoweldge runs dry, any other GURU's have insight into this that can chip in ? this is not normal behaviour, In know that much

    I can confirm that the same thing is happening on my system as well.

    Is the DWM bug something exclusive to Ampere cards or does it affect Turing as well?

    For me, the clocks not going to to idle seems to be fixed by simply signing off windows and back in, so at least there's that. No need to full reboot. Windows 11 v22621.755

    Edit: for me, the game that makes the clock stick is No Mans Sky (vulkan), specifically, not sure about others yet.

    Strange, you're right, now it doesn't work. :(

    Waste of time driver. :)
    Beyond me why it even was released.

    It did fix some game issues, and personally I have no problems with it at all on a slightly undervolted 3080 FTW3.
    So I think its pretty good, naturally.

    Sharpening without NIS still doesn't work, I guess?

    Bad driver for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, freeze all the time, even with default settings in the game. No probelm with 522.25. Win 10, video 3080ti.

    For me 522.25 and even 517.48 are unstable in CoD MW 2.

    Can't confirm this, am running with DSC constantly, no issues with Alt-Tab.

    This is present however. Clocks are stuck at boost.

    Rolled back to 522.25 and didn't get any major issue, the map corruption is 98.95% gone too
    Lets hope for a better driver for the game soon, its a major release

    Same here. just did a run of nms with vulkan to test. driver feels fast overall but clocks sticking on full load while there isn't any is not good.

    Thanks for the suggestion, matter of fact I usually use DXVK git builds, unfortunately same results with the most recent one.
    I was hoping to see if someone on a Pascal GPU is having the same issue.
    It's happened on any 52X driver I've tried (even studio ones), so something was changed for these versions regarding Vulkan.
