    nVIDIA GeForce Drivers v411.63 WHQL Windows 10 - (64-bit)

    nVIDIA GeForce Drivers v411.63 WHQL Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 8 (64-bit)


    @Ultra Male Are yoo ready, bruh?:D You're all welcome to the new barbeque party. And the Nvidia driver packages continue blow up in size (File Size: 517.11 MB). But will it blow your graphics to the hardware graveyard/heaven? Please test it. The new Turing graphics cards is out. Let's see how much this driver will break for Pascal owners:p

      • Includes interoperability with CUDA 10.0.
      • New extensions for Turing GPUs:
        • VK_NVX_raytracing (also available for Pascal GPUs with 8GB or more video memory, and Volta GPUs)
        • VK_NV_compute_shader_derivatives

    Limitations in This Release

    The following features are not currently supported or have limited support in this driver release:

    • Turing GPU Driver Installation on Windows 10
      Drivers for Turing GPUs will not be installed on systems with Windows 10 RS2 or earlier. This includes Windows 10 Threshold 1, Threshold 2, Redstone 1, and Redstone 2 operating systems.
    Fixed Issues in this Release

    • [Tom Clancy's The Division]: Graphics corruption occurs when using NVIDIA Gameworks settings. [2005096]
    • [Call of duty WW II ][1x3 Surround]: The center Surround display renders black screen. [200370257]
    • [Planetside 2][G-SYNC]: G-SYNC does not work with the game. [2221050]
    • [ARCHICAD][OpenGL]: The OpenGL driver crashes the application. [2093819]
    • [GeForce GTX 1080Ti]: Random DPC watchdog violation error when using multiple GPUs on motherboards with PLX chips. [2079538]

    Left for dead by the NVIDIOTS... again. I guess if Fermi is good enough, those customers don't deserve new drivers.

    There's just no excuse for this bull crap. More collusion between the Santa Clara Mafia and the Redmond Nazis. Gotta love the strong-arm tactics... gangsta style product support.

    yeah you see, and y'all blame me for being on the latest Windows 10 build which is the suckiest, it's because of crap like this :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    No blame. It's a matter of personal preference.

    As far as OS build compatibility, I'm sure Brother @j95 can fix that with one of his awesome driver mods.

    But, it really boils down to whether or not having new GeFarts drivers is important enough to compromise everything else by having the latest piece of crap OS. Unless there is a compelling game that requires the new driver to run, there is still no point in updating the GPU driver if everything is working correctly. It's a total waste of time and energy if you don't have a legitimate and compelling reason to do it. I'd venture a guess that 99% of the time, there is no reason for doing it other than end users having a goofy fetish and being OCD about having the latest drivers. It's pretty silly IMHO. The best way to have a stable system is the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach. Coincidentally, it also requires the least amount of effort.

    well, the latest games usually run like crap if they would even run to start with on older drivers.

    I tried one of the older drivers one time from MSI and Doom wouldn't even launch d00d. Now these drivers say they support FIFA 2019 which I did pre-purchase, I'm 100% sure they wouldn't run on older drivers or if they did they would perform like garbage.

    So I am forced to drink the Micro$h4ft c00l 4!D

    These morons have really squeezed us into a corner.

    Then comes the bloody OEMs who are shifting their apps to the Windows Garbage Store. Example: MSI stopped Nahimic Setup installer and now it's exclusively through the store. Don't want me to install it? then my taptop would sound like the sound is coming from a crappy phone.

    1. Everything should be better with DirectX 12... Said Micro$h4ft

    DirectX 11 mot DirectX 12 – Radeon RX Vega 64 och Geforce GTX 1080 Sweclockers.com | Use translator

    upload_2018-9-20_0-35-15.png

    The result that is being painted is very clear. Of six titles tested, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 performs better under DirectX 12 in five. For the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 it's all about - only one game shows better DX12 results, and in many cases DX11 is considerably faster.

    There is more than the numbers show
    So far, all right. DirectX 12 delivers better performance with AMD Radeon, and Nvidia is the worst - or? If so, it would be so simple.
    Although hugely much better than before, DirectX 12 still means some uncertainty, regardless of graphics maker. There are some more graphics bugs, a little more crashes, a little more unexpected performance or strange menus. A little more opulent, simply.
    The big sorcerer, both for AMD and Nvidia, is Total War: Warhammer II - more than the numbers show. The DirectX 12 feature is clearly labeled as beta, and luckily - game crashes, does not work as it should with some cards, provides bit-wise crazy performance apps and bitwise more than doubled charging times.

    But, should I drive with DirectX 12 or not?
    An attempt to rule the rule is that if an AMD Radeon is under the hood - test, by all means. You can very well earn a few frames per second, without actually losing so much - especially with a bit slower processor.
    Those who, on the other hand, sit on a Nvidia Geforce can with good conscience leave the switch set to DirectX 11, in cases where the election is available. In almost every case, performance is equivalent or better, while we are facing a whole lot of small problems.
    The above two summarizes pretty well the status of DirectX 11 and DirectX 12, early autumn in the year 2018. Challenges around the new interface are many, and sometimes the profits are unclear - especially for limited resource developers. It may take many years before we can add 11th to history.

    ------------------------------------------------

    AMD Radeon R9 290X vs. Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 Ti - five years later Sweclockers.com

    It has been spoken much that AMD ages significantly better over time, fine wine, and SweClocker tests show that in some contexts it actually fits - the R9 290X has been against the tooth of the day significantly better than the GTX 780 Ti. Equally big difference, however, was not in the previous article, the Radeon R9 Fury X against the Geforce GTX 980 Ti, although AMD managed to take some land against the rival even there.

    As you can see... Nvidia doesn't give a ****y after they have released new models!! The same can be said about Micro$h4ft.

    Msi just follow the Alienware's:D What is better than download AW's (useless) overclockings tool from Windows Store?:p Alienware followed MSI with Battery Turbo boost. As you see They are like brothers and sisters:biggrin:
