Looks like they put their version of FSR in this driver.

Sorta... it's not as good at retaining detail as FSR because it doesn't resolve the ringing issue with the Lanczos up-sampling method they both use. It also means that even if sharpening is @ 0% with NIS you will get ringing artifacts as if sharpening was enabled.

Example I took using the AMID EVIL Demo using the Lossless Scaling App.
(Note that FSR has sharpening @ 0.5 and NIS is set to 0.0)
(I'll use spoiler tags so I don't clog up the thread)
FSR

NIS


Now 400% zoom's so you can see the difference and get around IMGUR's compression getting in the way to much.



You can see that because of the ringing issue, NIS lost colour information and looks like it over sharpened the image.

Never understood what was the big deal with Fsr from a Nvidia gamer perspective when there was an upscaling feature for years available for GeForce owners. They're useful for up sampling to 4k and the gaming title has a decent anti-aliasing feature.

They don't tackle the limitations of Taa and reconstruction.

Just another method to upsample. Never hurts to have more options. Plus it looks a little better than nVidia's Lanczos implementations, both old and the new one. Especially when it's implemented game-side.

SIrPauly Nov 19, 2021 03:47 PM

The settings I like and use are 3264 x 1836 85% and 2954 x 1662 77% upscaled to 4k -- as long as the anti-aliasing is solid.

:cry: I hate the current state of AA.

Hot fix driver is out.

The current drivers tanked my FPS. I went from locked 60fps (max it goes) in Genshin impact to 20-25fps no matter the resolution. I loaded up a couple benchmarks and performance was a fraction of normal in those as well. Tried
re installing them and it did nothing. Installed my previous drivers and performance is back to normal.

Looks like Nvidia might be going open source on parts of their drivers for Linux:

NVIDIA Releases Open-Source GPU Kernel Modules

Quote:

NVIDIA is now publishing Linux GPU kernel modules as open source with dual GPL/MIT license, starting with the R515 driver release. You can find the source code for these kernel modules in the NVIDIA Open GPU Kernel Modules repo on GitHub.

This release is a significant step toward improving the experience of using NVIDIA GPUs in Linux, for tighter integration with the OS and for developers to debug, integrate, and contribute back. For Linux distribution providers, the open-source modules increase ease of use. They also improve the out-of-the-box user experience to sign and distribute the NVIDIA GPU driver. Canonical and SUSE are able to immediately package the open kernel modules with Ubuntu and SUSE Linux Enterprise Distributions.
This is a blog that has a bit more background on it: Why is the open source driver release from NVidia so important for Linux?

Hot off the press, 512.77 WHQL:

https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/nv.../#post-6016529

Since this was just released about 20min ago, there's no "clean version" available. Hapy has directions on how to manually clean up the NV driver and remove telemetry etc on Page52.

I also downloaded DLSS 2.4, you can find the DLL on TPU here:

https://www.techpowerup.com/download/nvidia-dlss-dll/

Megaman May 12, 2022 06:20 PM

Is DLSS 2.4 supposed to be released with the official drivers or?

Nunz May 12, 2022 06:23 PM

No, DLSS is usually updated by the game, not the NV driver. You have to download the DLL, then place it in the game folder and overwrite the old file. FYI, this only works with DLSS 2.0 games; 1.x and 2.x are not compatible.

Megaman May 12, 2022 06:39 PM

Oh right, that’s right, I forgot. Yeah

Megaman May 12, 2022 06:50 PM

I finally started CP 2077, maybe I should drop it in the game folder.

Holy crap, didn't realize I was using a driver from Jan 22nd :lol:

I have been lazy of late. Just installed 512.77, not seeing any high CPU usage.

What's the go with the clean driver downloads? You can't do a clean install of an NV driver, selecting only the driver for the install or does it keep NV bloatware regardless?

Nunz May 23, 2022 07:11 AM

Keeps the telemetry etc. The clean downloads delete it all from the driver package so it can't be installed.

Go back to Page52. I posted the link to the Guru3D thread where someone cleans them and then reuploads.

mizzer May 23, 2022 06:30 PM

How does the DLSS patch work? I usually enable it in-game. Am I supposed to be downloading and installing the latest version myself?

No, you don't have to. The versions on TPU are developer builds mostly, but some of them are much better than the "official" version of DLSS whatever game you're playing is using. DLSS 2.3 for example was a huge upgrade in IQ that some of us were using much earlier, before games pushed out updates (if they even did).

Check my earlier post a few posts up. You just drop the DLL you downloaded into the game folder and overwrite the old one.

LHR unlock fails with these. So if you have an LHR card and you want to casually mine with it, don’t upgrade.

Megaman Jun 15, 2022 06:42 PM

516.40 is out.

This might be something to consider if you’re on the latest Win 11 just for the compatibility factor /shrug

Added support for Windows 11 22H2.

KAC Jun 15, 2022 10:30 PM

Not upgrading my second computer due to LHR locks.
