Looks ok on DX12. Stable fps figures (35 raw / 70 with FG on) on low level flight over Chicago with TLOD 200 and 140 AIs right now. Still some small peaks on the fps graph but most likely caused by main thread as GPU latency is superflat. From the GPU perspective I would say it appears to be a good release.



Looking good on DX12 At KBWI in the Fenix with GSX running and seeing 52-60 FPS on all ULTRA settings


Yes, definitely it´s a good release. I have been flying for 1h with good results. Tokyo below 1000ft gives 45/90 fps figures with 150 AIs.



Here is a link to the popular ‘Cleaned’ version of this driver from Guru3D…

What is a Clean Driver?
A clean version of the Latest x64 drivers for Win 10, 8.1, 8, 7

Everything removed out of the driver package except for:

  • Core Driver files
  • PhysX
  • HD Audio
  • Key RTX features (present only in Clean Driver RTX packages)

I’m getting screen flickering/flashing in the last three drivers since 536.99… It’s definately less prominent with 537.42 then it is with 537.34 and 537.13, but for me 536.99 is the best current driver.


Using 537.34 with no issues. Don’t see anything in the release noted related to MSFS. I shall give it a try!

All seems to be working fine in VR with my Quest Pro using Air Link. I can’t say I can notice any difference compared to the previous 537.34 driver. Still, seems nice and stable so I’ll stick with 537.42 for now.

52 on the old driver to 60 on the new driver?
What was your previous driver ver?

I uninstalled this new version as I had multiple complete shutdowns of my computer with it. After reverting back everything was stable again.

I was just giving a range of the FPS that im seeing on the new driver. AKA anywhere from 52-60 FPS on the current driver.

This new driver is good. Happy with 4090

Just a short test with the .42.
Seemed good with FG, HDR, Nvidia filters,5120x1440,RTX4080.

Couldn’t get the FPS counter to show via the Nvidia overlay though (fps not available).
Need to test more…

REVERTED back to 537.13 as I had stuttering on the ground and when panning in cockpit (LatinVfR A321neo with Horizon integration on RTx 4090). Reverted back and did exact same flight, no issues.

I have nvidia gpu 4090 . I installed 537.42 driver. I receive the following error message

My previous drive was 531.29. no issue
Could you suggest me the best driver version to install

Try 536.99. Check power supply. Be sure it is of high quality. Same goes for the power cord & outlet. Re-seat if needed.

does it make sense to use the DDU every time I install a new driver, or is it enough to set the checkmark to “reinstall” during the installation…I’m never quite sure…?

Many thanks :blush:
