    Just a dumb question, are these hotfixes only for that game or fixes the same thing like for a game using the same game engine?

    Wow what a hotfix, Destiny 2 just crashes and wolfenstein Youngblood too. those games didn't crash, with the 516.59 both games didn't crash, playing both games for hours an hours back to
    516.59, other games and Halo Infinite ran well with the hot fix.
    It's the first time for me that i have troubles with a hotfix driver.

    this is not on the page, shouldn't advertise fixes for things that aren't comfirmed.

    Clean install the driver, these games work fine.

    ASUSU GPU Tweak Tool v2.1.9.1 stopped working, the GPU 1660gtx began to overheat (89+). The problem was solved by reinstalling old drivers (516.59). Temperature max 83.

    Here to complain that the driver won't recognize most GamePass / Windows Store games I throw it, still.

    I have to go and use Profile Inspector, extract the profile, add the UWP executable, and re-insert the profile, for the control panel to see them properly. This is an intern's job, please have someone do it.

    I can report later about the HDMI issues. I have a C9 and a Samsung HW-Q950T. With the latest updates to Dolby Access I can finally have proper Atmos with the bar once again.

    You won't be getting any performance improvements with that card.

    Will check it out over the next days.
    I am using a secondary connection to a C1 OLED through a Denon X1700H, and was getting audio drop outs each hour or so for 1-2 sec. These do seem to happen more often under high system load (CPU or GPU). Not related to Dolby Atmos in any way though.

    Do you need the fixes mentioned in the first post? If no, then don't worry about it.

    7.1 24b 192kHz PCM
    But I don't think that it depends on the format really as I vaguely remember getting same issues on 2.0 24b/44kHz too.

    Can you do me a huge favor? Can you send to it Atmos for Home Theater, play a game that doesn't use Atmos, and tell me what input format your Denon says it is? The more detail the better.

    I’m curious, what game comes with Dolby Atmos? I’ve never been able to make it work before. I always get 7.1 pcm that my Denon changes to Dolby surround. However after updating a driver or two ago games only pass through as multi channel in.
