bad driver. had more bsod's in the last hour than i've had the last 6 months.
the first was right after installing, bout 30 seconds after the reboot. this has happened maybe 3 times in the last 3.5 years since i've had the machine.
the second was browsing reddit. just 1 tab open, acceleration has been disabled.
the third was in the second round of titanfall. game just froze up. i could alt tab out but not shut down the app; then came the bsod.
the fourth was watching a montage (mp4) i made last night getting ready to up to youtube.
i install drivers the same way all the time: add/remove, then manually delete folders and then reg entries. no other driver i've tried, and i try them all, has been this bad.
interesting - my standard sli pc does not have the dsr option, but tri-sli does allow for in the control panel. confirmed that both have sli selected via control panel.
What resolution do you use when you game at 75hz? My native resolution is 1080p @ 60hz but if I create a custom resolution of 1080p @ 75hz before enabling DSR I can change to 75hz using Windows Screen Resolution after DSR has been enabled. When I selected a DSR resolution in game (The Evil Within) it used the 75hz refresh rate as well instead of my native 60hz.
I tried creating a custom resolution (3000x1688) as well and tried switching to it using Windows Screen Resolution but I wouldn't let me.
DSR wreaked HAVOC on my 660ti. Had to disable it. Was running Trove ok for a couple minutes at some stupid resolution then my HDD started clacking, it hung up and I swear everything was about to catch fire. :infinity:
I also got a few Win Explorer crashes.
try this to get SLI DSR
1. nvidia control panel ,enable then disable surround display
2. nvidia control panel, select maximise 3D performance
3. hopefully it has disabled 2 of your displays and now SLI is active
4. in windows screen resolution, enable your two disabled monitors click apply
5. nvidia control panel, manage 3D settings, DSR-factors, tick all boxes
now SLI and DSR should be enabled, thats how i had to set it up with the
drivers before these new ones.
im not to sure if its windows the driver or even maybe a bit of both that is the full problem lol although for me since updating the drivers (I let GeForce experience download and update the latest driver for me) I don't need to mess around with monitors no more it just works like it should but surround mode does not work with DSR I had to use 1x3 monitors mode if it was an option I would select it in the game/benchmark.
Yeah sucks with having a display capable of 100+hz.
check with nvidia inspector and you will see sli profile for shadow of mordor
Seems to work for me as a workaround. Desktop and games at 1080p stay at 75hz, and while using the higher DSR resolutions in game locks it back to 60hz which is acceptable considering the nature of the feature. Also works with automatic refresh rate switching with MPC for proper 24p/48hz playback.
I'm guessing it's to keep people from using doubling up with DSR while already forcing custom down-sampling resolutions, but really screws things up when just using custom refresh rates at native res. Really needs to be some better implemented solution for non-standard refresh rates and DSR.
Pretty sloppy NVIDIA.
That's the problem when nvidia don't make any release notes, people speculate about performance increases that may or may not exist.
So many people claim to see an improvement yet equally as many claim otherwise.
If there has been no specific and deliberate optimisations made then it is very unlikely that anything over a miniscule improvement has taken place.
I'm not going to do biases placebo testing a bunch of games for hours on end to test stability and performance just because I'm looking for a magical fix.
If it's not in the notes then there isn't much of an improvement if any.
Who gives a F about 3d. Performance and stability fixes are absolute basics.
People are acting as though nvidia had no access to these games before card launch.
People have numerous problems with older games that have been out for years...not just new games.
Rage forces my memory clock to 6000mhz...lower than default. It only happens in this game, I suppose you will tell me that old games aren't a priority and that new games...we should just be quiet and wait.
So..........then you expect nothing in terms of software support?
Ah. While im extremely grateful that Nvidia are still supporting and adding to the 5 series, that GE is a no go for me. DSR def needs to be added into the Native Control Panel. Please.
That aside, great looking drivers. Im going to test them out anyway, hell, GE might not be so bloated now.
Guys, what i am doing wrong? When i activate DSR, i am getting 25,29 and 30hz DSR resolutions. None of the DSR resolutions are 60hz.
I have 1680x1050 60hz BenQ X2200W. Any tips? and Asus 760gtx
@ManualG Does you enable old cuda renderning in apps?
if not crysis plz mod this drivers
or someone tell me what dlls copy where'
Holy ****. IQ even on the desktop with these is atrocious. Reverting.
I don't see the the problem, you need to have DSR enabled globally in the control panel anyway before you can enable it for games in GFE and you can't control the Smoothness in GFE.
The only benefit you have with GFE is that you can select different DRS resolutions for different games but you can only enable DSR for games in GFE that NVIDIA have tested for compatibility. You can enable all the DSR factors in the control panel though and just select which one you want to use in game.
The only thing that bothers me is that the smoothness is a global setting, you should be able to set it up for individual games in their profile.
You might want to check what resolution it was picking. I had this problem on once PC that was hooked into a TV. Turns out it was using 1080i instead of 1080p.
CUDA_Support.zip, readme.txt for instructions inside
if that doesnt work, you can get the 32bit or 64bit nvcuvenc.dll depending if the app goes in program file(x86) or program files and put in the installation folder of the encoding program. reboot
English version missing? All links are for the international version.
Got around the same score in valley with this driver compare to 337.50 344.16 & 344.24
