Latest bunch of nVidia drivers causes performance drop?


Recommended Posts

I'm on 451,48 still but over at the Avsim MSFS forum i came across this:

https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/593383-vr-benchmarks-for-nvidia-drivers/

It's a VR test so pancake mode may differ but i guess not.

 

 

 

Win10 Pro 64-bit, i7-4770K @ 4.5 GHz, Corsair H100i, AsRock Extreme4, ASUS Strix 1080Ti OC 11GB, 32 GB DDR3 G.Skill 2400. Monitors: LG 27GL850-B27 2560x1440 + Samsung SyncMaster 2443 1920x1200, HOTAS: Warthog with Virpil WarBRD base & hegykc MFG Crosswind modded pedals, TrackIR4, Oculus Rift S.

Personal Wish List: A6 Intruder, Vietnam theater, decent ATC module, better VR performance!

Yes, even with other games I have had serious performance issues with certain nVidia drivers as well (on my old system): Assassin's Creed Odessey for example was next to unplayable with recent drivers because of insane stuttering and atrocious 1% low performance.

For some reason it's always ATi drivers that get all the negative press, but truth it there are issues with both companies.

Because Nvidia drivers sometimes tend to be somewhat less... Functionally Graceful, shall we say, than their hardware, I've stuck with the Studio Driver for now, which is version 460.89.

 

I've had good luck with it, it seems to perform well and be fairly crash-free.

I'm still using v436.30 ... don't see the point on upgrading, since my gpu is fairly old (a gtx1070ti )

I'm updated the Nvidia driver to the v.461.09 and also last DCS open beta update version.

Without any change, except for gpu driver and ED update, I notice a drop down fps for a few seconds.

With my RTX2070S I usually fly with 80/90 fps with high graphics details but since some days we suffered of instant drop down fps to 14/19 for a few second many times during the simulation session, specially during the change pov both in the cockpit and in the external view.

One of the best things I ever did for DCS performance was to uninstall the Nvidia Experience app and roll back the drivers for my 1080ti.

i had some problems with GFE back when i was fighting through some video card / DCS issues. i think it uses a bit of overhead that may affect DCS.

Oh I definitely believe it does (or did in my case). Another one I've recently killed off is the Alienware Command Center service... HUGE process hog.

thats another issue i was experiencing. i have an alienware desktop. many times i finished a mission and exited DCS i would feel the fan was running still after minutes. i would review task manager and see AWCC.exe eating CPU. i did finally beat that by updating it to the latest available.
