    Documentation and the GeForce forum URL on this driver for additional known issues.

    http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/425.31/425.31-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf

    From the PDF:


    And the forums:

    https://forums.geforce.com/default/...lay-driver-feedback-thread-released-4-11-19-/


    EDIT: Ah I see the fixes and open issues are listed in the above post already, nice!

    That only leaves those three listings on the GeForce forum since the Shadow of the Tomb Raider issue with Ansel is already listed as a open issue in the PDF document. :)
    (Actually only two since [2453059] corresponds to the PDF about multi-display PC's but is called GFE and G-Sync in the forum URL.)
    (And this one [2552316] after comparing the numbers for the desktop flicker issue.)

    You didn't disconnect your PC from the Internet while using DDU and installing the standard driver.

    I was anxious to try ray tracing in Shadow of the Tomb Raider but I only have the demo so wasn't able to enable it. My benchmark score was still solid though, 1080p max settings averaging between 60-70fps.
    Superposition 1080p high settings = 9106
    Time Spy 1080p graphics score = 6553
    Shadow of War demo 1080p max settings = 76
    Heaven 1080p, Ultra quality, extreme tessellation, 8xaa = FPS 80.5, overall score 2027
    Metro 2033 Redux 1080p max settings = 54.72

    My scores could be better but I'm still running and AMD 8350 CPU and 16gb G.Skill DDR3 1600. Either way they're still able to compete with the big boys. Anyway hope these benchmark results helped anybody looking to upgrade or whatever.

    In conclusion these are a good set of drivers in my opinion. I'm very fascinated to see how long the Turing architecture lasts and just how much Nvidia can pull out of it. I'm guessing a good 2-.3 years.

    well tested the raytracing stuff on 1080ti vs 2070, and as i spected, the 2070 in this area blows the 1080ti back to the stone age, and there is a lot of noise too, but metro 2033 now crash on dx12 even if rtx is disabled

    tested raytraing on my 1080 too, not as visually stunning as some peole tell, the demos in the other hand, like quakeRT or the DXR demos, that's were rt is really well implemented, not worth the upgrade for now, but i'm looking forward when games gets the quakeRT level of raytracing, that's amazing stuff.

    For now ill will keep my 1080, going to buy a 4K + HDR 10 bit monitor instead, and be ready for those juice next gen 7nm gpus.

    I clean installed 1903 from an ISO made from UUPdump. My machine would not pick up the WDDM 2.6 driver from WSUS even though I had the standard driver installed. After DDU, WSUS downloaded and installed the DCH version of 419.67. I guess I'll stay on DCH WDDM 2.5 until MS or Nvidia pushes another update later this month.
