For me the screen flickers since I started using this driver

For me as well. This driver gives major issues when using multiple monitors. Screen flickering and screen going black and not going back to normal. De-graded my gpu drivers to 522 and its fine now.

I was having long freeze period (1 min +), rolled back to 526.47

Something’s wrong with this version, indeed. Three monitors via HDMI, Ryzen 5900X + 3080Ti and after updating to 527.56 I’m noticing short 1 second stutters that happen occasionally in completely random parts of the game - it can be in hangar, it can be anywhere during flight.

It is a single short stutter, and it is not frequent nor constant, but happens at random intervals of between 10 - 20 seconds. It really gets on my nerves…I’m wondering what it might be, we’re having a lot of new features with DLSS3 and I kinda expected some bugs. :-/

I’m getting shimmering in the menus in VR with this driver - especially in the blue left hand listing of settings. Anyone else? DX12, clean driver install.

Fine on my system. Running a 3700X, 2070 super at 1440p HDR.
Using DX12 and DLSS balanced.

Thank you. But this is a VR issue for me. Flat screen is fine with 3080, i7 12700k.

Ah, yeah sorry didn’t notice you’d said VR in a previous post. :face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth:

Since insraing this driver I have experienced major issues. Flights start off well with the frame rates, locked, at 30 FPS. The frame rates seem to decay slowly during the flight and I experience brief stutters when panning. If I pause the Sim for any length of time the Sim seems to become very stuttery, and on two occasions the frame rates reduce to almost single figures, and after leaving the Sim paused for two hours today the FPS reduced to 2…
After reloading the aircraft at the start up airfield, KSFO, the frame rates went back to 30 plus.
I’m going to revert to an earlier version of the driver now and see how that performs.

I’ve just recently bought a new custom 13900K, 4090 rig from PCSpecialist. I have this latest Nvidia driver installed, via Geforce Experience.

For some reason I cannot access DLSS. In MSFS it’s simply not an option in the aliasing menu, meaning I’m using TAA. I also have the same issue in Cyberpunk, With my old 3090 PC I could use DLSS in Cyberpunk but with my 4090 it’s permanently greyed out and I cannot enable, forcing me to use AMD 2.1 FSR.

I’m on Windows 11, which came preinstalled with the computer. In benchmarks on 3D Mark I’m scoring fine, with scores as expected, and my performance seems fine. It’s just a weird issue with DLSS not seeming to work in any game.

Any ideas?
