This fix allows me to reactivate HAGS again, for gaining a few FPS.

Performance wise I’m now back to where I was before SU11, with:

  • Full Screen 4K / HDR10 / DX11
  • Preset ULTRA
  • TLOD 400 / OLOD 200
  • DLSS ‘Balanced’
    gives me 38…40 fps on ground at LSZH (DreamTeam scenery)

(for my rig description see my profile page)

There is discussion in this 526.98 driver at Guru3d forum…

Really you can enable HAGS again with this driver?
I had to disable with the previous 520x drivers due to the warning message and high GPU temps in task manager.
