    There's nothing wrong with recent drivers, I have no complaints.

    Vanguard is my game but I really didn't have a problem with the previous driver. However this one works very well

    was referring to ACV, the white screen this driver fixes was mitigated by deleting the games cache.

    Could be system and game dependent, on my aging system ( 1060 6GB / Intel 2600K / Z68 / X-Fi Titanium PCIe / 16GB DDR3 1800 ) the 511.xx drivers meet or exceed the 'golden drivers' I've used in the past for the games played.

    Summary of tests from 442.49 to 511.65, trying to test the same games as Lokkenjp over on Reddit and generally match. Full breakdown with data in Spoiler, a summary follows after

    [​IMG]

    Summary, highest performing driver for each game and category ( FPS, frametimes AVG 1% 0.1% )

    Framerate(FPS)
    511.65 Division2
    456.71 Farcry5
    511.65 ForzaH4
    511.23 Wildlands
    456.71 WorldTanks

    511.65 Farcry5
    442.59 ForzaH4
    496.49 Wildlands
    511.65 WorldTanks
    Note that the spreadsheet 'summary' column automatically selects the 'best' driver for each game in each of the 4 categories ( FPS, frametimes AVG 1% 0.1% ) .If a category result 'matches' across multiple drivers for a given category the higher driver number in the result is selected e.g. if 442.49 and 511.23 have matching FPS results then 511.23 is selected in the 'summary' list.

    EDIT 1: Summary with 511.xx driver test results removed so spreadsheet selects drivers from 442.49 to 497.29

    Framerate(FPS)
    497.09 Division2
    456.71 Farcry5
    496.76 ForzaH4
    466.11 Wildlands
    456.71 WorldTanks

    FrametimesAVG
    497.09 Division2
    456.71 Farcry5
    496.76 ForzaH4
    466.11 Wildlands

    Frametimes1%
    497.09 Division2

    497.09 Farcry5
    442.59 ForzaH4
    496.49 Wildlands
    496.13 WorldTanks​

    Compared to the previous summary the spread is quite large, the 511.xx series are predominant in previous summary.

    EDIT 2: Added full data in Spoiler 'All Data' tag

    No change for 10 bits on 23/24hz. It's all blurry and weird. Workaround is to choose 12 bits manually in control panel.
    GSYNC needed a reboot to work.

    If I were to go by 3DMark results, I'd have to stay with drivers a year old. 461.72 edges out all the newer generation drivers on my 2080 Ti.

    Like all the 5xx drivers I've tested, dwm.exe is spamming NV service REG queries ~1000 times a second with these installed. Seems to be just repeating the same pattern for no obvious reason. I don't see any benefit from this branch, so back to 472.47 STUDIO (behaviour is completely absent).

    Did you look at the screenshot I posted from Process Monitor. That's idling at the desktop. If I could be bothered, I'd post another one with 472.47 installed, where the behaviour is absent. Timestamps don't lie.
    Please explain, what do you mean by "no it isn't".

    Stop using "slimmed" drivers, things break when you cluelessly remove libraries from the driver

    Managed to get some lines for that location by setting the desktop to a DSR resolution,

    it is not spamming it at all.

    Stop saying stupid things, core driver isnt touched at all when using slimmer, always using slimmer to get rid of garbage, never had problem until now :)

    No comments from the ignorant peanut gallery, circular dependencies have always existed.

    Your Monitor data is invalid in the registry, delete with CRU, and remove the instances from device manager, let it redetect and reconfigure with CRU as desired, this could be a result of both CRU or Custom DSR tool.

    88 instances each for changing to a DSR resolution and back to native.

    How much are you paid to defend Nvidia ? Nvidia Slimmer from uKer working flawlessly, no problem at all and no garbage, maybe the ignorant is you, as you even dont try it by yourself :)

    Maybe attempt to make this coherent so we can continue to be disappointed in you for clearer reasons.
