Nvidia DSR causing crash to desktop?


Recommended Posts

Greetings,

 

I'm using a 1440p monitor with Nvidia DSR set to 2x.

 

Not only does it look awesome, but it allows much higher FPS than the in-sim MSAA or SSAA, so I really like using it! Problem is, it causes the sim to crash to desktop.

 

Any ideas on how to fix it? I'm using Nvidia driver 460.79, on a GTX 1080 Ti (11 GB) if that helps.

Step it down a notch. :pilotfly:

 

You mean, reduce the DSR factor to a lower number? I'm using 2x, which renders twice as many pixels and then down-scales it to fit the screen. It's rendering at less than 4K resolution, which is no problem. I'm using a GTX 1080 Ti with 11GB of VRAM.

 

Performance is excellent, visuals are amazing, and the darn thing keeps crashing! I just went back to the in-sim MSAA 2x for now, which looks pretty nice on my 2560x1440 screen. I wonder if this will get fixed. It's an Nvidia issue, nothing to do with ED/DCS.

Yes. I got mine at 1.20 even got a bit of a step up for frame rate. :cool:

Try 1.50

Rollback drivers to < 450

I prefer to always use the latest driver when possible. Fewer bugs & glitches in other games. Graphical bugs in DCS are pretty much always related to the sim itself, not the driver, so may as well use the latest one because everything else works better.

GTX 10xx series works better with 442.19-442.74. Magic benefit of latest drivers with no latest gpu series is a placebo. 

 Nvidia doesn't mind improving the experience with older gpu's. They prefer you buy a more recent model

Actually I've great luck with the latest Studio Driver, 460.89. It's more stable and allows me to run my 1080 Ti full-tilt instead of downclocking, and it doesn't seem to crash anymore. Of course, only time will tell, but it seems pretty stable and has really good performance. Guess I'll find out eventually.
