    NVIDIA Releases 361.43 WHQL Driver


    Brian

    NVIDIA earlier today released the 361.43 WHQL driver which comes with some long awaited fixes that cover power usage when idle at 144 Hz as well as SLI issues with Star Wars Battlefront. In addition, the driver adds support for GameWorks VR 1.1 as well as support for Oculus VR's latest SDK.

     

    Some highlights from the 361.43 release notes:

     

    Gaming Technology

    • Support added for GameWorks VR 1.1 including VR SLI support for OpenGL applications and support for the latest Oculus SDK.

     

    Application SLI Profiles Added or updated the following SLI profiles:

    • Bless - DirectX 9 SLI profile added
    • DayZ - SLI AA and NVIDIA Control Panel AA enhance disabled
    • Dungeon Defenders 2 - DirectX 9 SLI profile added
    • Elite Dangerous - 64-bit EXE added • Hard West - DirectX 11 SLI profile added

     

    Windows 10 Fixed Issues 

    • Cleaned up flip timing and event notification bugs. [200151547] 
    • Fixed a driver bug where if the output is active, hot unplugging a device will cause any following hot plug device to be ignored. [1707505] 
    • Cleaned up unexpected behavior related to the multi-HMD (helmet-mounted device) use case. [200152110] 
    • Return NVAPI_NO_CONNECTOR_FOUND from the NVAPI_GPU_GetAllDisplayIds() when headless GPUs are detected to allow for identification of the unsupported use case. [200155835] 
    • [GM20x] Clock speeds remain above idle at 144 Hz on desktop. [1631144] 
    • Lag in Star Wars Battlefront with SLI enabled after updating to driver 359.06. [1709067]

     

    Windows 8.1/Windows 8/Windows 7/Windows Vista Fixed Issues

    • Prevented an extra hotplug/unplug for unconnected devices in escapeDirectModeEnable\DisableVRDirectMode(). [1707485] 
    • Fixed windowed G-SYNC not being totally disabled at the UMD (user-mode display) when the VR display is active. [200146036] 
    • Updated the whitelist entry regkey to allow multiple entries at once. [200155690] 
    • [GM20x] Clock speeds remain above idle at 144 Hz on desktop. [1631144] Other Fixed Issues 
    • Increased robustness of the VR SLI queued present implementation to mitigate flickering and tearing related to rendering to the scanout surface. This is not operating system specific. [200151843]

    i see that 361.42 is the available version for download for linux 64. When i try to install nvidia drivers downloaded from nvidia's site in my Lenovo Y500 650m SLI, my ubuntu stops working. Then i have to remove/purge everything from nvidia and install them through apt-get. Of course not this version.

    Does anybody follow the linux driver versions? I mean does anybody use the official site to download the latest drivers in linux?

      After spending significant time and effort to obtain "DC" screen for 8770w (which is essentially a regular IPS panel with fancy board that converts 8bpc LVDS to 10bpc DP), I have finally got and installed one. All works great, except of the one problem...

      It has pretty bad banding / posterization in lower shadows. I have tried profiling it in different modes (full range, sRGB, rec709) - issue persists, and it indeed shows only in the lowest part of the characteristic curve. Mids and highlights are represented fine and show low deviation from reference values.

      GPU is HP K4000M, Nvidia drivers installed "as it is", video-card is identified without a hitch.
      Banding was not present with the original TN panel using the same GPU.
       
      While checking a software side, I have noticed that Win10 has bit depth set to 8-bit...
       

       
      My initial reaction was, - "Easy, let's change it in `nvidia-settings` and we're all set":

      ...but that would be too easy, right? After selecting 10bpc and clicking "Apply" screen went off and back on, only to show that depth stayed at 8bpc. Repeating the above few times yielded exactly the same result and I'm not in a hurry to meet a cliched (and laymen) definition of insanity.
       
      Let's check GPU-Z. So far so good, nothing unusual. Notice the highlighted BIOS version and subvendor string:
       
      Time to delve into other tabs. We are running WDDDM v2.4 which supports GPU dithering, but hey... BIOS version has changed!
       
      Briefly back to `nvidia-settings` to check what is reported by vendor's own utility:

       
      So far, we have two strings for BIOS version:
      80.04.5A.00.02 (let's call it an "A") 80.4.33.0.37 (let's call it a "B")  
      Notice how 2nd one seems to not follow hexademical notation. Lastly, "NVIDIA BIOS" drop-down, reports "A" version:
       
      ...and monitor section which confirms that rig is indeed capable of 10bpc, but currently running at mere 8bpc:

       
      Windows "Adapter settings", reports version "B". It's 2019, diversity is a must.

       
      "NVidia inspector" is of the same opinion:

       
      Now, let's use some seriously legit tools and check-in exported BIOS file in `nvflash`:

       
      Here we have two three interesting findings:
      Reported vendor is Dell, not an HP. See this link for details. BIOS version is back to "A". Have I already mentioned diversity? MXM module uses MX25L2005 flash storage in WSON-8 packaging. If things go real nasty, we should be able to rescue a patient via Pomona clip and external programmer.  
      Loading the same file in "Kepler BIOS tweaker" confirms the facts:

       
      EDID settings, courtesy of NVidia Control Panel. Hex dump can be found at the bottom of this post.
      ...Shall I be worried about "60.02Hz" refresh rate?
       
      To summarize:
      Why two different BIOS versions are reported? Anything to do with UEFI (e.g. HP is sideloading its own during boot)?.. Why two different vendors reported? As far as I remember, this is branded HP GPU. Where to get "clean" BIOS of K4000M for future experiments? Ideally from 8770w equipped with "DreamColor" panel from a factory.

      Hi guys, bit of a rookie to the whole EGPU scene. Currently I have:
       
      - MacBook Pro 2015 13inch (3.1GHz Core i7 16GB RAM)
      - Razer X Core 
      - Apple TB3 to TB2 Adapter
      -  TB2 Cable (Cable Matters)
      - 23inch AOC External Monitor
       
      I am wonder about what graphics card to get to run X-Plane11 with high graphic settings?
      I have purgewrangler set up and ready to use with an AMD graphics card, but am also open to the idea of an Nvidia graphics card.
      Any advice appreciated. I did not buy a Windows PC as I need a Mac for various other things and wanted an all-in-one laptop.

      Hello everyone,, I need your expertise, I have a m17 r4, (2012) unlocked A15 bios thanks to Klem, it has a Gtx 675m in it now, 
      I would like to know the best GPU to upgrade to without losing a lot of the factory functions of the alienware laptop, like being able to use both VGA functions such as intel 4000, and the factory bios for the cooling of the GPU, I don't want to solely rely on the nvidia
      As a full dedicated GPU, let me know what VGA card to get and what vbios to use, I will gladly donate beer to you for your help, or point me to a member on this forum who can help me,
      Thanks, Shelby,  Aka captcavy
