    the wal file is capped at 256MB, anyone with larger has stuffed their system up.

    I don't even have that folder or file. I do have this path (C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\DisplayDriverRAS\NvTelemetry) with event.dat of 60kb, that's the biggest file.
    My guess would be if a system is stable telemetry only sends info with driver issues/crashes/resets etc.

    Edit: This is with the cut down basic drivers only, not full installer.

    I'd think that once the telemetry is uploaded, the file is reset. If people block the upload, the file will get larger and larger since the old data is never uploaded and thus not deleted/reset locally.

    I think telemetry files in that folder are only active on the initial driver installation. They probably just send GPU id, OS, driver version and whether the installation was successful. NvTelemetry.log ends with "Stopping logging." line with a timestamp of driver installation date. You might be able to stop it by blocking these in hosts file or firewall.

    Yes, but as Astyanax mentioned it shouldn't keep growing, just like event logs, they max and just keep current data.
    I should have mentioned my above post was with just basic cut down drivers, not the full installer. I never checked when I had all that installed.

    I did a few versions ago strip out all leftovers and data not used with a slimmed down driver.

    I edited my post, that is why I don't have it as I didn't install telemetry folder from the installer, hence why I didn't have those files, that makes sense now.
    Thanks.

    I just found out Steam when using the gpu accelerated webviews in interface option goes from 13w to 60w plus. Holy cow I immediately shut off this option.

    Wish I would have known this earlier but good I spotted it. Was wondering why my GPU was getting 25% load with just Steam open.

    Holy crap it totally rips power away from the GPU. 58 degrees idle went down to 43 too. If anybody else had this option I highly recommend you keep it off.

    I remove that crap from the drivers before install and I don't have any problems.

    Been using for a few days and no problems at all. Tested multiple synthetic and in-game benchmarks with very good results. Just FYI when new drivers come out this is my process. I uninstall current ones, restart, download new drivers, extract, custom installation, only install the main and physx driver, also check clean installation.

    Steam can only cause load on your gpu if theres things being updated visually in steam.

    Can anyone report Nvidia the Output Dynamic Range LIMITED issue when turning off TV using HDMI ? I already sent them

    The problem with OutPut Dynamic Range .
    It is always suppose to be set to FULL. it always been with all the drivers before.
    With 430.64 when I turn my TV off and wait until it shut off totally , when I turn it On , the Output Dynamic Range set to LIMITED .


    Now even when the TV is off and I am doing Remote Control using TeamViewer I can see the Output Dynamic Range is LIMITED when the TV is Turned Off .

    There is something in the driver Auto Detect or Auto changing or Bug that happens when it doesn't detect HDMI Signal , ex is when TV is turned off or nothing is connected using HDMI .

    Please fix this issue because it is terribly annoying, it does that Everytime I turn TV off .

    I don't know if it happens with any HDMI Monitor or TV that turn off totally like it's not connected . but with the OLED it is turned off like it's not exist or no HDMI is connected to save power

    But it didn't happen with any driver before 430.64.





    How to produce the issue

    Install 430.64 clean install , physx and Driver only , not GPU Experience or HDMI Audio

    Restart

    Set Output Dynamic Range to FULL and set Use Default Color Settings

    Turn OFF TV

    After couple minutes turn TV On

    It should be set LIMITED By it self .


    Even when I did Remote Control using TeamViewer I saw it was Limited after I turned the TV off . so it is Automatically when something happens with the HDMI Signal and the Driver - BUG.

    and you were already told by several people that the issue is only occuring for your particular case, they will only take feedback from users experiencing the issue via the survey unless you're a fairly known developer or user who knows how to construct a perfect test case. (even then, issues experienced by the few are not as focused on as the majority)

    This is clearly not the case at all.

    I don't think you understand what GPU accelerated webviews does or something. It is definitely increasing my wattage to 60w immediately when ticking this setting AND restarting Steam to make sure it is on.

    Not sure why or how some people are not affected. IDK. I use a controller on Steam. Ticking this setting and restarting, you have to restart for it to take effect, immediately puts my GPU at 25% with 60w. Unticking and restarting immediately puts it back down to normal.

    It doesn't matter how long the setting or Steam is on. Nothing else is being done. Period. 1080ti.

    Posted this on reddit with a variety of results. Most people saw some kind of increase. My increase is gigantic.

    So are you guys restarting Steam with option ticked and looking at GPUz? Because that is where I am getting my data. Please check if you can. I would like to understand if this is a problem with 1080ti or something else.

    I don't need the option ticked at all so I really don't care to be honest, but knowing that it was running with 60w at all times was something I would have liked to know before for sure.

    Also, I don't really care about heat. Check wattage and what not. Fan profiles can make heat different for each card. I would like to know if your GPU is using more power.

    Well you would have to untick and restart Steam and then keep GPUz up to see what is going on. So far I have no idea what people are doing. But this works every single time for me.
