    Game Ready for Zombie Army: Dead War 4
    The new Game Ready Driver provides the latest performance optimizations, profiles, and bug fixes for Zombie Army: Dead War 4. In addition, this release also provides optimal support for Apex Legends Season 4 and Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story.

    Maximum Framerate
    In the last Game Ready Driver, we introduced a new Maximum Framerate Setting into the NVIDIA Control Panel which allowed gamers to set the max framerate a 3D application or game can render. With the latest Game Ready Driver, we’ve incorporated community feedback asking for the limits to be extended. As a result, framerate limits can be as low as 20fps and can be raised as high as 1000fps.

    TechPowerUp Releases NVCleanstall 1.3.0
    by btarunr Today, 14:50
    TechPowerUp today released the latest update to NVCleanstall, our lightweight utility that lets you heavily customize your NVIDIA GeForce software installation, letting you choose not to install a lot more components than what NVIDIA's installer allows. You can disable installation of components you probably don't need, such as telemetry. Version 1.3.0 introduces the ability to install the NVIDIA Control Panel app from Microsoft Store without needing to log-in with a Microsoft account, for the DCH version of GeForce Software. This is particularly useful for those using the DCH version of GeForce software without wanting to log into Microsoft Store.

    TechPowerUp NVCleanstall Version 1.3.0 also introduces a tweak that makes the driver use message-signaled interrupts (MSI). We have reorganized the user interface to move a large selection of advanced tweaks to their own page. As part of the driver customization process, you can make advanced tweaks in this page, or move on to building your custom driver package. We've also added the ability for you to drag-and-drop downloaded driver files onto NVCleanstall for them to be used as installer source. Lastly, we fixed background driver update check not getting disabled when its checkbox is unchecked. Grab NVCleanstall from the link below.

    DOWNLOAD: TechPowerUp NVCleanstall 1.3.0

    You're all welcome to the new barbeque party. Let's see how much this driver will destroy for the users:p Be prepered for more works if you have the Alienwares. And Please post bench results.

    I guess with the introduction of 360Hz monitors they just moved the slider to 1000 lol.

    Anyway I'm moving away from 1080p/240Hz/TN to 1440p/165Hz/IPS so I guess I'll be capping less :D

    Ironically, Game Ready for Zombie Army could aptly refer to the DCH driver users as much as the game, LOL.
    You can also still download "real" drivers (instead of the DCH garbage) directly from NVIDIA. You just don't click on the link the Kool-Aid drinking monkeys use.

    Use this link instead: Advanced Driver Search | NVIDIA

    Under the "Windows Driver Type" options, select "Standard" and you won't get the DCH cancer version.

    Even NVIDIA acknowledges that the DCH drivers are junk.

    Just use NVCleanstall No need to fiddle into Nvidia's download page by yourself. Always pick standard drivers. None should support the collaboration (beside sleepers) between M$ and Nvidia.
    Yees. But Nvidia should get rid of this way split up their drivers package. Most likely got paid by M$ for each time people visit the Store and download it.

    I have never tried that NVCleanstall utility (yet). I have not really needed it. I simply delete everything that is garbage, leaving only the folders shown below...

    ...and then edit the setup.cfg file to remove lines with reference to the crap highlighted below. (If you don't remove those three lines, the modded driver installation will fail.)

    This isn't as thorough as a @j95 mod, but it gets rid of all of the useless trash payload.

    modding the .inf file to install doesn't seem to work with this driver, anyone has any idea about this?

    EDIT: fixed it, a windows update was creating the problem

    OK, I just tested it on my desktop and laptop, for both Windows 10 (both systems) and Windows 7 (desktop). The NVCleanstall utility worked nicely. I like it. :vbthumbsup: +5 rep

    These are the options I use and this is what the folder looks like.

    For my laptop I would have Optimus checked as it doesn't have a dedicated Mux switch.

    Hey guys. Have a look here: Row Shading | HWiNFO32 & HWiNFO64 Bug Reports

    This driver is really crappy as far as I am concerned. Caused some issues for me on Windows 7, Windows 10 Pro, Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC and Windows 10 Enterprise 1909 on my desktop, and Windows 10 Enterprise 1909 on my laptop. The issue first noticed was the same across all of those installations.
