NVIDIA + DirectX 12 performance boost? (522.xx drivers)


Recommended Posts

(Not quite sure where to put this topic.)

 

Just saw this article which has NVIDIA "promising" non-trivial performance increases in various DirectX 12 games in their new 522.xx drivers.  I wonder if there is any merit to it?

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla: up to 25 percent (1080p)
  • Battlefield 2042: up to 7 percent (1080p)
  • Borderlands 3: Up to 8 percent (1080p)
  • Call of Duty: Vanguard: up to 12 percent (4K)
  • Control: up to 6 percent (4K)
  • Cyberpunk 2077: up to 20 percent (1080p)
  • F1 22: up to 17 percent (4K)
  • Far Cry 6: up to 5 percent (1440p)
  • Forza Horizon 5: up to 8 percent (1080P)
  • Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition: up to 8 percent (4k)
  • Red Dead Redemption 2: up to 7 percent (1080p)
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider: up to 5 percent (1080p)
  • Tom Clancy’s The Division 2: up to 5 percent (1080p)
  • Watch Dogs: Legion: up to 9 percent (1440p)

No Pro RTX / Quadro version just yet.

 

hmmm interesting. there might actually be something to this. weve known for a while now that Nvidia has some kind of CPU overhead plagueing their drivers, especially at lower resolutions like 1080p and that is really noticeable vs. recent AMD cards. 

 

here a report from HUB on this:

I was going to say this might make me finally update my NVIDIA drivers but the performance increases only applies to RTX GPUs and not GTX GPUs as well......

 

Im still looking forward to the results though if the claims are true.

Current Laptop:

Lenovo Legion 5: AMD Ryzen 7 4800H 2.8Ghz (Boost: 4.2Ghz), 6GB Nvidia Geforce GTX 1660Ti GDDR6 Memory, 15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080) 144Hz IPS display, 16GB 3200MHz DDR4 memory, 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD, 1 TB Teamgroup MP34 M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD, Windows 10 Home 21H2

Some people are experimenting with the driver in the nvidia subreddit driver megathread to see what the performance increase could be. People are reporting gains with 30 series GPUs, I seen a couple posts that 20 series GPUs are getting gains too.

 

The driver seems to introduce issues too as usual, so far I only heard of map corruption in CP2077

clever strategy by Nvidia, release the 4090 first and make it look awesome, then after initial reviews were out push the driver to pimp up 30 series so that ppl would be more interested in buying up stock.

 

makes u wonder how much performance is intentionally left on the table for previous-gen gpus otherwise 😛

Seems that, since no one can mine Ethereum on GPUs anymore, NVIDIA went ahead and removed the mining limiter.

HA! lot of good that does 😄 but then again, the limiter might impact some kinda workloads not directly related to gaming...
