New GeForce Drivers

The GeForce Blog announces the release of new "Gamescom Game Ready" drivers for NVIDIA GTX graphics cards. Presumably this means these support the gaming convention that's now underway in Germany (we're not sure how they wouldn't), but they also can apparently improve performance in some games by as much as 23% under the right circumstances. Additionally, these add some new beta features, including an Ultra-Low Latency mode to improve input responsiveness, an Integer Scaling mode for pixel art games, and a GeForce Experience Freestyle sharpen filter. These also add support for Remnant: From The Ashes as well as three more G-SYNC Compatible gaming monitors. The Ultra-Low Latency Mode enables "just in time" frame scheduling, submitting frames to be rendered just before the GPU needs them, which they say reduces latency by up to 33%. Here's more on that:
Low Latency modes have the most impact when your game is GPU bound, and framerates are between 60 and 100 FPS, enabling you to get the responsiveness of high-framerate gaming without having to decrease graphical fidelity.

To select a Low Latency mode, open the NVIDIA Control Panel, head to “Manage 3D Settings”, and scroll down to “Low Latency Mode”. Three options are available:

  • Off: The game’s engine will automatically queue 1-3 frames for maximum render throughput
  • On: Limits the number of queued frames to 1. This is the same setting as “Max_Prerendered_Frames = 1” from prior drivers
  • Ultra: Submits the frame just in time for the GPU to pick it up and start rendering

Note: you can apply all latency options on a per-game basis on the “Program Settings” tab

Our new Low Latency Mode is being released in beta with support for all GPUs in DX9 and DX11 games (in DX12 and Vulkan titles, the game decides when to queue the frame).

Hey all. Just a quick note here on today's Game Ready Driver.
NVIDIA has found a bug in our recent 436.02 driver posting,
causing it to install GeForce Experience even if the user selects not to install it.
We are pausing the driver download from the NVIDIA website while we fix the issue. Users attempting to download the driver from the NVIDIA website will receive a “404 – Not Found” message when attempting to download.
If you have installed the driver and wish to uninstall GeForce
Experience, you can do so from the ‘Window System Settings: Add or Remove programs’.
We apologize for the error and hope to have the fixed driver re-posted soon.

I wish they would just make GFE a separate download or have a driver only download option. I never install GFE, and it would cut the download size of the driver by over half. I just opened the installer with 7-Zip and 328 MB of 544 MB installer is GFE, so without the bloatware, I we would only have to download 216MB.

It's not just Nvidia, Intel is supporting integer scaling on their next gen hardware too. Both explanations sound reasonable

Integer scaling artificially limited to Turing -_-, as if Pascal and earlier can't do a simple copy command to framebuffer to quadruple a fucking pixel without a filter... They think we're fucking stupid.

FU Nvidia

Thanks for the info!

This has become an all to familiar issue with NVidia lately, they seem to always screw up their first driver following it up wit a hot fix or a re-release.

Pretty sad QA that they got going over there.

Anyone try low latency mode yet set on ultra? Just wondered if you could tell a difference.
