why all the nvidia new driver 4x a month? I looked and don't see a good explanation...
que es esto..
why question whats always been
1. You don't have to install them.
2. Whenever a new game comes out = Game Ready Drivers
3. Hotfixes for the stuff the Game Ready Drivers breaks
4. Actual fixes for the game
You don't have to install them if its working fine for you and its better they release more rather than once every few months.
Too many drivers = people complain.
Not many drivers = people complain.
Read release notes for explanation.
Because things need to be fixed or features need to be added? Thought it was obvious.
If you aren't having issues or have no use for the changes or the new rtx features that were just added, then just skip them.
Also new cards are likely a big reason.
The RTX cards are going to trigger driver updates for many months to come I am sure as people add DLSS and Ray Tracing to games as well as tweaking things regarding, G-synch, FPS, HDR, VR, bugs, etc. etc. You want driver updates as much as they are needed. No one is forced toupdate though as others have said.
Optimizations for new/existing games. If you are fine with the games you play no need to update.
Are you... complaining that Nvidia is developing for their cards?
Would you prefer the alternative -- no bugfixes, no improvements, no new features, no new game support, no new card support?
Just so we're all clear.
Too many drivers in short time give an unsettling feeling, on the other hand, it's good things are fixed or worked on.
But testing them out 4 times a month, only to find older drivers still better is a bit of a pain imo.
Putting it in black and white isn't very constructive either, swarmed with drivers or no drivers at all? Bugfixes that sometimes don't work, or no fixes at all?
I prefer a solid once a month driver update. To have one set every other fart that's aired is a bit too much imo.
Just to be clear
Its usually the case when new cards are released. With RTX, maybe a bit more to cover some major new titles released, esp BF5.
Cuando no hay conductores, la gente dice m****a nvidia.
Basically if you don't have an RTX card and don't play one of the new games the drivers are "optimized" for, there's no point in updating all the time. My last update was for the Assassin's Creed Odyssey driver...
There are general fixes in new driver versions for all cards and all systems. But it's your choice whether to update or not of course.
