    Glad I found this info. 526.98 made my 170 HZ monitor flicker alot and thought I would have to RMA the monitor. Rolled back to 526.47 and the flickering stopped. Looks like Nvidia needs to fix the drivers...

    Yup. It seems to work fine in the games I tried it with.

    I see. Not sure we have the same problem.
    My main monitor, ASUS VG27AQL1A was turning off (black screen) seemingly at random. Then, I got to notice that everytime I opened MWII the black screen occurred.

    I've turned G-sync off two days ago and haven't seen the issue occur anymore, and I've kept 526.98 since release.

    At least in my case, it's like a super quick flicker on my one and only monitor, an LG C1 television. The screen goes blank for about 1/4 second like it lost signal or something. With the normal settings I typically use (gsync on, 117fps. cap, low latency on, vsync forced on), it would do that every few minutes. Often rapidly a couple times in a row. With "maximum performance" on, it happens every hour or two.
    Not enabling gsync would be a giant "NO" for me. At that point, I'd keep going back to older drivers until one worked fine. That's too big of a feature for me to just bail on.

    Can you please fill out the driver feedback form an so that we can look into this?

    Can you also download MediaInfo and export the codec information from one file that shows this issue and email it to driverfeedback@nvidia.com in case it is specific to certain video formats?

    The option is not new, I always use / used Prefer Maximum Performance since the option was added, I never have problems with full throttle while gaming OC ed :)
    But it's good to see that the option also can solve issues, or partly.....

    [Edit :] I have always G-Sync on 1440p

    I'm getting massive flickering/flashing on my UberRig with the 2x RTX 3090 Ti FE in SLI ONLY in both Spider-Man games (Remastered & Miles Morales).

    Have 526.98 installed. Every other games works just fine but these two are unplayable due to crazy flashing/flickering (as soon as the menu comes up to enter the game). Tried various graphics settings (RTX ON/OFF, Medium settings, Max settings etc. to no avail).

    HELP!

    Get rid of the SLI and problems will be gone.

    It worked fine just about a week ago before updating to the latest drivers; plus, SLI doesn't even work in these games (aka DX12 MGPU).

    finally, we can watch 8K60 HDR without frame drops

    There are some drops on the 60, but it might be just bug in the browser or youtube or whatever, gpu is 55% and cpu is barely 7%

    Hi. I am gettin occassional crashing during loading games. Watch Dogs Legion ( happened 2 times ) and Metro Exodus EE. Never in game, but in loading . Happen from time to time. Is my card fine? I have PalitGamerock 4090 stock.

    Here are always that 2 errors during crash:
    2 errors.

    1.display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered


    2.The description for Event ID 0 from source nvlddmkm cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.

    If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.

    The following information was included with the event:

    \Device\Video3
    Error occurred on GPUID: 100


    It happened on 3 versions of drivers i tried.

    Sorry if this has been mentioned , but sometimes in Windows 11 22H2 i get random black squares occasionally.
    They are very rare and occur randomly without any reproducible pattern, happens only on desktop and not in any games.
    This issue goes back to about 2 to 3 months ago when i bought the RTX 3070 so all drivers since then exhibit the same behavior
    My gpu is just fine plays all games great without any issues no oc on anything.
    This is just a very minor annoyance as it rarely happens and when it does it only last a couple of seconds.
    Just curious if anyone else has noticed this behavior.

    No idea if anyone else has had this issue. But I've reverted back to an older driver since this one gave me some odd artifacts (I guess I'll call it) in games.

    Edit: Disabling Screen Space Reflections in my games ( Control / ACV / Cyberpunk 2077 ) makes the white dots go away.

    Twice I bought a launchday card (1080ti and 3090) and havent regretted either apart from the cost of the 3090 was steep.
    But it looks like I got pretty lucky on my particular 3090 due to poor component choice by certain AIBs on none high end cards, requiring a driver fix to get things stable.
    This launch isnt any better, worse in reality because I can't advise the most stable or safe card to get due to generic problems that are yet to be resolved (no matter the price) or even formally presented to us as understood!
    It doesnt matter there is actual stock, it appears bad issues have become the norm at launch meaning early purchase should be avoided for some time.
    And then theres the price.
    I see next gen being an apology release. Sad.
