New NVIDIA GeForce Drivers

NVIDIA now offers new version 460.79 GeForce Windows drivers. Unsurprisingly, these are the game ready drivers for the release of Cyberpunk 2077, which comes at 7:00 pm EST tonight. These also support the release version of Minecraft with RTX, more G-SYNC compatible displays, and one-click optimal settings for more games. This article has specifics on all that's new. Here's what they say about Cyberpunk support:
Game Ready For Cyberpunk 2077
Cyberpunk 2077, perhaps the most anticipated game of all time, launches later today. On PC, it features numerous ray-traced effects, and its performance is boosted by 60% or more by NVIDIA DLSS, GeForce RTX’s critically acclaimed AI-powered tech.

With the performance provided by DLSS, you can enable Cyberpunk 2077’s immersive ray-traced effects on any GeForce RTX GPU, as shown in our trailer:

Get all the details about Cyberpunk 2077’s PC tech in our upcoming launch article, and be sure to download today’s new driver for an optimized experience.

"boosted by 60% or more by NVIDIA DLSS"

So yeah I'll put that claim to the test, I bet donuts I won't get the low end of 60% in that claim.
Should be up to X% increase.

Of any NVIDIA driver I've installed, this one gave me a scare. My screen went black and never came back up. I rebooted my PC, it took a bit to actually load into Windows, just displaying those spinning dots in a circular motion for awhile. Eventually it came back up. Definite scare as I never had that happen to me before. I double checked and it appeared the drivers were installed and my NVIDIA Settings were all there so I don't know what happened this time...

By their benchmarks, it probably should have said "50% or more." But putting it your way would be "up to 230%," is that better?

No issues here, and that black screen, it always does that when the driver is being unhooked and hooked again.

Ooh. Friend snagged me a 3060ti, can't wait to see this game all purdy-like (instead of on a 970).

Really want to see a good comparison video of RTX on/off for this game. Going to wait until I can find an RTX 3070 to play it, hopefully by then more bugs will be ironed out.

I was still riding with a 760 until earlier this year. This is the game that made the decision for me. Got a 2060 that doesn't really get tested by anything I normally play, so I understand completely.

These drivers aren't playing nice with my EVGA 1080ti either. Black screens, grey screens, fps loss in RDR2, slow reboots, fan spinning up during boot. I've reverted to 457.30 for now.

If it's anything like Control then they're pretty legitimate claims. RTX is what it is but DLSS is going to be the real champion.

Yeah I get that all the time, yet this time it never came back up. Was a fright indeed!

Same card here.

Also Galaxy just did a 9 gig update on the game, for those wanting to be as ready to go as possible.

Where'd you find one? I've yet to see any 3080 in stock, of any brand. FTW3 is what I'm mainly looking for though.

Twitch stream of whenever a drop hits. Hop on it quick when it happens.
Some companies tweet about stock first too.
Or line up at EVGA queue.

NewEgg and BestBuy both got some stock yesterday, but they sold quick. BestBuy kept giving me an error adding to cart. I came close on NewEgg. I got one in my cart, but before I could complete the checkout it was gone.

Yeah it's a dice roll
Make sure to have accounts created at the sites in question first, with addresses saved etc.

Even if the order is completed, sometimes they void it from what the twitch streamer was saying. Like apparently newegg has a bunch of cached servers with cloudflare or some such so it's not always live data and they void any orders that are over their number of stock after the fact.

Edit: I haven't bothered to get in on the rat race, just curious about how it's going which is why I was watching the twitch stream. But maybe I should... if I sell a few I could pay for my own 3090 lol.

If you run VR and use the 3x series...beware.
The have some crazy bug(s) with the drivers which lead to frame drops with the latest drivers.

Yes because it will be true. I'll come back with an astonished, ASTONISHED feeling if I get a 60% or even 50% gain switching to DLSS.

I've seen people reporting issues, but I really haven't noticed them myself. Can try this fix that someone posted on Reddit for issues they were having with a Reverb G2; it does seem to help to disable pre-allocated virtual monitors in Win10 via a registry switch.

I got mine directly from EVGA, I was on their wait list. If you go to their site and go to the card you want and put in to be notified, you are on their list. I got on very early on, got my card 3 weeks ago, and its been a beast.
