    GTX 1060. With 436.02, 436.15 and 436.20 I get the EXACTLY same problem: all of a sudden, the fps in most of the games I play drops by x2 (two times slower - what was 60 fps, becomes 30). I revert to 431.xx, and the fps is back again. WHY???

    Turn off Vsync. Or use adaptative mode.

    Nope - whatever I do, Vsync ON or OFF or Adaptive, it behaves as if it is set at "Adaptive (half of the refresh rate)" - I get exactly HALF of the fps, compared to any previous driver...

    Hmmm I wonder if this is even faster with Vulkan. I don’t ever do benchmarks so won’t really know for sure.

    I wonder what performance improvements they speak of.

    This driver must be an older branch. No integer scaling...at least not in the Control Panel.

    I still don't get what Integer Scaling does...or why it was so requested.

    Google is your friend :)
    https://www.change.org/p/nvidia-amd-nvidia-we-need-integer-scaling-via-graphics-driver

    It's a way to scale up-res without too much smoothing, blurring the frame. I would guess most important on old games and 4k displays.

    Not a problem with the NVCP, but a problem with some missing registry values in the 436.20 INF.

    Need to add the following registry values so that the Low Latency Mode setting (and other 436.15 settings) shows up in NVCP:
    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\nvlddmkm\FTS]
    "EnableRID73779"=dword:00000001
    "EnableRID73780"=dword:00000001
    "EnableRID74361"=dword:00000001
    Just save the above code into a text file called "latency.reg" then double-click it to add the registry values. Afterwards, the low latency setting is available in NVCP.

    Thanks in advance.
