    Lovely. New is as always better @Mr. Fox @Falkentyne

    You're all welcome to the barbeque party. Let's see how much this driver will destroy for the users:p Please post bench results. Maybe Ultra Male will test it on his smokin Area-51m ?:eek: Hope it doesn't run into THIS!

    Integer Scaling to 16/20 series, renamed a few settings to make the "Anti Lag" more obvious.

    It should also have the cursor corruption fix for any computers with a dGPU directly attached to the monitor.

    All the links are down.
    Seems NVidia has pulled the driver because there is a bug in it which causes Geforce Experience to install even if the user does not select it.

    But as we wait, someone could tell me what is ultra low latency mode ?

    It's basically the max prerendered frames setting enhanced as they're trying to explain.

    "Low Latency modes have the most impact when your game is GPU bound, and framerates are between 60 and 100 FPS, enabling you to get the responsiveness of high-framerate gaming without having to decrease graphical fidelity.

    To select a Low Latency mode, open the NVIDIA Control Panel, head to “Manage 3D Settings”, and scroll down to “Low Latency Mode”. Three options are available:

    • Off: The game’s engine will automatically queue 1-3 frames for maximum render throughput
    • On: Limits the number of queued frames to 1. This is the same setting as “Max_Prerendered_Frames = 1” from prior drivers
    • Ultra: Submits the frame just in time for the GPU to pick it up and start rendering"

    Have a good read! ;)

    Seems interesting, I hope they reupload the driver soon.

    Seems most gaming notebook users won’t be able to make use of the new Ultra-Low Latency Mode as the release notes mention it being unsupported in SLI, low-level APIs (DX12/Vulkan), and MSHybrid (Optimus).

    Also the fact that integer scaling is locked to Turing GPUs on W10 seems like nothing but a stupid artificial limitation. “Thanks to a hardware-accelerated programmable scaling filter available in Turing, GPU Integer Scaling is finally possible!” sounds like a crock of marketing BS. Integer scaling is the oldest and most basic algorithm and has been available in third-party software for years without requiring any specialized hardware whatsoever.

    Tried out the new NVidia driver. The same or slightly lower 3DMark & Timespy results. Tried in BF1 with Ultra Low Latency selected in NVidia driver - didn't actively notice any reduction in latency, but think I saw some slightly lower framerates in some places and perhaps a bit more stutter, I didn't play any better with it selected (but hard to tell because each lobby is different with different players). I think I'm gonna put the Latency settings back to default in the NVidia driver and wait for some official sites to do a latency and framerate analysis of this new driver/feature, because it seems that we might lose smoothness and framerate by activating the Ultra Low Latency option.

    (I'm already at 180 fps in BF1, so perhaps at that framerate there's not much reduction in latency to be had anyway by this new Ultra Low Latency option in the NVidia Control Panel.)

    EDIT: some further testing comparing Ultra Low Latency vs "Normal". In BF1 I ran around the same empty server comparing frame rate drops and there was no difference between the two, it was also just as smooth. I chose a map where it would occasionally drop below my 177fps limit that I've set so I could see if the dips happened more often when Ultra Low Latency was set. So that's a positive, looks like my earlier impressions might have been a bit too subjective. Also maybe slightly more crisp response from mouse movement with Ultra Low Latency selected.

    Also tested in Far Cry 5 in the benchmark, Ultra Low Latency setting didn't reduce framerate on that benchmark either.

    Looks like Ultra Low Latency is a keeper for now, will see how it goes with any further gaming I do.

    Ultra-low latency mode works similarly to RAL in that a reduction in driver lag is most noticeably felt when the game is GPU-bound at lower frame rates. At that frame rate with your specs, I’m assuming you are playing BF1 on the lowest settings in a small mode like TDM, so you are probably CPU-bound.

    Lovely as usual...[​IMG]One month without pushing out new drivers means they are rusty and need come back on track again. See... New drivers two times a month.. First the WHQL then the Hotfix. One month between them means only more problems than usual:vbbiggrin:

    NVIDIA 436.02 Installer Buggy, Always Installs GeForce Experience, No GDPR Consent


    NVIDIA today released its GeForce 436.02 WHQL Gamescom Special graphics drivers. You can read all about them here. The installer of these drivers appears to have a major bug that forces the installation of GeForce Experience without obtaining GDPR-compliant consent from the user. With the ratification of GDPR, NVIDIA driver installers present a selection screen right at the start of the installation, which lets users opt to install GeForce Experience (and give their GDPR consent in doing so), but a second option lets users decline GDPR consent, forcing the installer to install GeForce drivers without GeForce Experience. A bug with the installer of GeForce 436.02 WHQL disregards the user's choice at this screen, and installs GeForce Experience without the GDPR-mandated user-consent.

    Making matters far worse is the fact that you cannot deselect GeForce Experience from the list of components in the Custom Install screen. The Custom Install list lets you make the installer skip installation of optional components that are otherwise installed by default in Express Install (GeForce Experience features in this list only if a user gives GDPR consent in the previous screen). We're hoping that this is a simple installer bug by NVIDIA, because anything worse would put the company in violation of EU privacy laws. We at TechPowerUp are in the final stages of developing a free utility that lets users take complete control over their NVIDIA graphics driver installation, called NVCleanstall. Using this software you may skip lot more optional components than what the NVIDIA Installer allows, such as Telemetry. Grab a beta version of NVCleanstall from here.

    Update 16:27 UTC: NVIDIA has removed the 436.02 drivers from their website, and confirmed that this is a bug.
