    Thanks for your answer, is there no way to have a modified driver? I am not an expert or anything but I would like to know if there is any way to modify a .inf or something similar ?. regards

    Yes, I noticed that Google Chrome uses the cpu instead the gpu for the videos on youtube or web games. gpuz always shows me that the GPU is in the minimum while the processor is in 70 or 80% of use. no matter how hard you try to activate hardware acceleration, I always get the same result in google chrome.

    HW acceleration is disabled on FF and Chrome on unsupported hardware. Even my old laptop does use only cpu instead of iGPU.

    It's a shame, I thought that in some way the modified drivers could help ... Thank you very much for the time that you all wrote to give me your answers. regards

    Something I found out a while ago but recently bumped into again, is that this driver seems to completely removed vulkan compatibility on my laptop. Doom Vulkan would not boot up, PPSSPP and other emulators would not run or recognize the GPU if set to vulkan backend etc...
    This does not happen on the official drivers, I haven't test any other modded ones however. You might wanna take a look at it in prepare for 419.67

    XG 425.11 drivers for For Laptops/Desktops:- [Lite & Debloated + Physx] made by @6.|THE|1|BOSS|.9 :cool:

    https://mega.nz/#!exkAjYaL!r6fhtLmoF37BUEl9UfynMyaYozqgVkuGlnOx7diHWV4

    Enjoy ;) :cool:

    Ok here is what they do on every driver :) I got the list from there dead website http://tweakforce.com by using http://web.archive.org/ ;)
    XG drivers are tweaked to improve image quality and stability while performance may increase or decrease slightly depending on your system specs. A few XG registry tweaks include mods to the following:

    Paletted Textures In Video Memory
    Render Quality Flags
    Target Flush Count
    Texture Clamp Behavior
    Texture LOD Bias
    Use Cached PCI Mappings
    Texture Memory Space
    Downloaded Memory Space
    Texture Precache
    UMA Fast Frame Buffering
    Main 3D rendering
    Triple Buffering
    Any more information you want to know.. ask them.. :)
    Here's what I observed comparing between official ones vs XG...
    -Less microstutters
    -Higher OC Potential (Gives me additional 50 ~ 90 MHz more OC) with the same overvolt (I use +75mv) going higher voltage gives me black screen
    -Higher FPS [Not significant-(YMMV)] (due to less stuttering I guess you feel that you are playing at higher frame rate :D)
    -Less latency per a frame (Means smoothie gameplay) ;)

    If you want the normal XG driver version... look here...
