    So considering there are 2 parallel conversations happening, as regards to the OP , the 411.63 gave me issues running gta 5 and andromeda (stating hardware wasn’t up to the mark, running 8750 and a 1070mq). So I have switched back to the 399 series. I have only recently returned into nvidia’s fold after a hiatus 5 yrs.
    On the second conversation, my 7970m purchased in the m17xr4, has lasted me till date and still going strong. This was actually a replacement for the fermi that I could afford back then (my first AW purchase ever). I had preferred to go to the 680m considering how well my previous exp (a 9600m gt and desktop 8800 I had used prior to it, but the cost to perf. ratio based on reviews between the 680m and 7970m were close’ish so I bought the 7970m. Not to mention at the time I was on a resident’s salary. In my opinion I quite liked the 9800 series from ATI although at time I was firmly entrenched with the green side.

    Anyone else facing higher system usage after using gpu monitoring tools like msi afterburner or gpu-z on 411.63? Just letting msi afterburner run without any monitoring option enabled causes spike in system processor from task manager and not only that, it's using around 10-15w power. I didn't face this issue on previous version.

    @j95 Thanks for the link. So from what i understand, devices under msi mode have better input latencies compared to them under irq mode which should improve performance too. But in my laptop, nvidia device is already listed under msi mode :confused:

    I did observe the similar issues with RTSS module as well. So I had to use Agaueeye from optix for OSD and use Xbox Game bar for screenies and recording. So far I didn't observe any issues.
    I tried MSI w/ screenshot configured along with agaueeye and I saw touchpad disabling itself. So, I switched to Game bar from MSFT.

    Thanks for suggesting that software. I'll check it out. I'm currently using afterburner only to edit voltage curve and rtss as a standalone app to monitor fps.

    I think then GPU undervolting might not work if MSI AB isn't running. You can run MSI AB and apply the undervolted profile, close it and try agauaeeye. Disable frametime if you don't need it. I disabled it. I used CAM and it was missing screenie function and had data mining operation done in background!

    Nah it works fine. I tested it by playing a game with gpu z running in the background and it reported exact values which i set in afterburner. I'll try agaueeye :cool:
