    GeForce 466.63 GRD Feedback Thread

    Yep, Nvidia have released Nvidia driver for Win 11

    NVIDIA Releases GeForce 471.41 Game Ready Drivers: Windows 11 and DLSS on RDR2

    NVIDIA today released the latest version of GeForce Game Ready drivers. Version 471.41 WHQL comes with support for Windows 11, including a WDDM 3.0 compliant display driver, making it NVIDIA's first official driver for the upcoming operating system. In addition, the drivers introduce DLSS performance enhancement on Red Dead Redemption 2 and Chernobylite. The drivers also introduce CUDA 11.4 support.

    Among the issues fixed are lack of hardware acceleration on Capture One; HUD loss issues on Valorant; a game freeze noticed with DOOM Eternal; League of Legends failing to launch; mouse pointer issues with certain DSC monitors in HDR mode; blurry Ansel depth-of-field in certain games; display resolution being limited to 640x480 on some monitors after updating from older drivers; distorted HDMI audio playback on 8K displays connected via HDMi 2.1, and HDMI audio drop-outs on LG C9 OLED TVs.

    Maybe it is a placebo effect but after tried several drivers until 471.11, I think or feel the OEM driver (latest 462.35) is giving me the most solid performance so far. This thing is even a Studio Driver!

    @Papusan, do you have any technical opinions on OEM drivers vs regularly update drivers directly from NVIDIA? Thanks!

    The OEM don't make own graphics drivers. And the OEM don't normally release every new graphics driver from Nvidia and put it on their support download page. I expect they test a few and give it an approved stamp they can use for trouble-shooting when people run into problems/call tech support for help. At least this is what Dell AW used to do when you needed tech support in the old days. Want help... Use the drivers they wanted you to install from their download page.

    Edit.
    I forgot the second reason. They have to push newer drivers on newer systems if there is a major change from Nvidia as etc security fixes.

    "most they might ever do is mod the INF on a new model released between driver versions".

    I've always been suspicous of deliberate driver sabotage since rottenApples tactics. I think if there is any verifiable sabotage it would be in new games mostly though. Still have the last release version before 3xxx series only lately went to 47111. I have not done any synthetic benching since updating though.

    Huh... that's weird I tried RDR2 straight away after upgrading (GeForce Experience quick install..) and it ran fine (Vulkan, nearly everything on Ultra, DLSS Quality). I still think the hair looks like trash with DLSS Quality mode but the performance is great and everything else looks great so.. keeping it on.

    I'll probably do that since this problem been happening every time i update to a newer driver. Soon as i go back to the 461.92 drivers everything is good again when playing RDR2.
