Nvidia Driver 471.41. Anyone have any good or bad experiences with this driver in DCS?


Recommended Posts

I haven't yet updated since I typically check this forum first to see if it's OK or a disaster like earlier this summer.  Anyone on this? Especially VR Users?

Seems fine, i updated from 451.48 to 471.41 for MSFS (which didn't solve anything... LOL) but it runs just fine. I'm gonna keep this one.

So I just gave 471.41 a try within the last hour and had some peculiar issues post installation.  I took a full C:\ backup, did a full DDU / Safe Mode uninstall of my current 465.89 drivers, rebooted Windows and installed the non-DCH version (ala Standard) 471.41 drivers.  Seems like those drivers don’t like something in my system likely the HP Reverb G2... if I had to describe the symptoms WMR seems to start & restart over and over manifesting itself like the system hangs... comes to life, hangs, comes to life... black screen flashes, etc etc.  really weird.
 

I admittedly didn’t try all that hard to get them to work - tried a couple of reboots to ensure the drivers installed correctly and pulled up nVidia Control Panel and my system was acting all wonky.  Very happy I took a full backup beforehand and just restored, I’ll stick with 465.89 for now as I really don’t want to spend all weekend fiddling with nVidia drivers...

 

not saying you’ll have the same issues but if things are running well for you at least take a backup beforehand

I have a 1080 Ti and 471.41 works well for me in DCS and other games too. I'm using it with an i5-6600K (4C/T) at 4.5 GHz.

 

A hefty computer like yours should chew through anything you throw at it, spit out the bones, and be hungry for more. Go ahead and give it a try! Keep in mind that your RTX 3090 is really new, and newer drivers may contain bug fixes and performance improvements for the newest and meatiest graphics cards, so it should definitely be worth it for you. If it doesn't work out, you can always go back to the one you're using now (always make sure you have a copy of your current driver just in case!)

for a simple driver update you should not use DDU !

from Nvidia forum written by DDU developer:
-DDU should be used when having a problem uninstalling / installing a driver or when switching GPU brand.
-DDU should not be used every time you install a new driver unless you know what you are doing.
