NVIDIA 436.02 Driver Release: Integer Scaling, Ultra Low Latency Mode, Freestyle Sharpen, Performance Improvements

Recommended Posts

Well that didn't take long for NVIDIA to respond to Navi. The new 436.02 Game Ready Driver adds the following features:

Game Ready

  • Provides increased performance and the optimal gaming experience for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade, and World War Z


Gaming Technology

  • Adds Beta support for GPU Integer Scaling
  • Adds Beta support for Ultra-Low Latency Mode
  • Adds support for new Freestyle Sharpen Filter
  • Adds support for new G-SYNC compatible monitors

Driver release notes: https://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/436.02/436.02-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf

This isn't the old max pre-rendered frames setting, its supposedly a new improved algorithm that matches AMDs anti-lag feature for Navi.

Next up is support for integer scaling which Intel recently announced but it seems NVIDIA beat everyone to the punch. Unfortunately, this is only for Turing for now:

Additionally NVIDIA has created a new filter for FreeStyle simply called "Sharpen" which improves performance and visual clarity that is supposed to be on par with RSI but with much broader support and granular adjustment. According to Eurogamer, "They also point out that the amount of sharpening can be adjusted from 0 to 100 per cent, applied on a per-game basis and works with games across all major graphics APIs: DX9, DX11, DX12 and Vulkan".

Finally, the driver brings with it some game performance improvement, including very popular titles like Apex Legends which sees up to 23% boost at 1080p:

Overall a pretty solid release, it had some issues earlier when it was released with GeForce Experience being force installed but it should be remedied by now.

Do you recommend updating to this driver for all older GPU's like the GTX 9xx/m, 10xx and the RTX?

Yes although Kepler notebook support is discontinued w/this driver release unfortunately. However Maxwell/Pascal/Turing do well with this driver and I'd recommend upgrading. Integer support is currently only for Turing but I'm hoping NVIDIA makes it available to Maxwell/Pascal once it's out of beta.

I'm also hoping that nvidia will make the integer scaling available to the older Cards.

Yeah I dont know how integer scaling is a turing feature when the hardware demand is going to be minimal considering the exact content its going to be used for.

it should(theoretically) be easily implemented in maxwell/pascal cards

      NVIDIA 'Maxwell' VBIOS mods
       
       
      Here you find modified VBIOS versions for the mobile parts of the Nvidia 'Maxwell' series.
      The VBIOS versions in this post are tweaked for performance and versatility. You'll get almost complete control over the performance parameters of your GPU.
      List of available VBIOS mods:
       
      Nvidia GTX 970m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 6 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments Nvidia GTX 980m - 'OC edition' rev0 - >> 8 GB Version << - modified by @johnksss & svl7 -> see attachments  
      Screenshot demonstrating the capabilities of the 970m versions:

      >> Read the instructions carefully before flashing! <<
      If anything is unclear after reading or if you have additional remarks, please post in the thread.
       
      Flashing:
       
      - Go to the device manager -> 'Display Adapters' -> chooser your GPU, right click on it and choose disable
      - Flash the VBIOS with mnvflash, a modified version of nvflash (see attachments). Here are detailed instructions for nvflash in case you aren't familiar with it.
      - After the flashing is done: Enable the GPU once again in the device manager.
      - Reboot
       
      Do NOT use driver 347.09, it's broken and useless and won't allow you to overclock, even with the stock firmware.
      Don't distribute the files hosted here outside of Tech|Inferno. Don't modify the files you download here.
       
      Donation link in case you want to buy me a beer

      Thanks and cheers!

      I installed an NVIDIA Quadro P4000 Max-Q in a Clevo P750DM-G.
       
      Device manager hardware ID shows:
      PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_1BB7&SUBSYS_75021558&REV_A1
       
      I have done the standard inf file mod, then disabled driver enforcement as I have done successfully in the past, but it's not working this time. The install starts, then fails less than half way through. I have tried the DCH version, standard version, and studio versions and none of them will work. I am probably missing something. Could it be the result of the vBIOS?
       
      Below are screenshots starting with GPUz

      I have tried to update nvidia drivers of my notebook ge72vr6rf apache pro. The only drivers that works are the ones provided by the msi. The problem is that they haven't updated those since 2016 and I can't play newer games. 
       
      Some say you need to mod your 1060 drivers, which I have no idea how to some says you need to update the flags in ini files. So please help me
       
      Thanks for your time.

      Following the release of NVIDIAs new 436.02 driver which I mentioned in an earlier article here, I've decided to make a quick and dirty video showing off NVIDIAs new Sharpen filter which is part of their Game Filter feature. It works with the most popular APIs including DX 9, 11, 12 and Vulkan and can be set on a per-game basis with granular settings of 0-100 unlike AMDs RIS which is limited to Navi and lacks DX 11 support.
