Hi all, I’m still on studio driver 462.59, clean installed, and I tried studio driver 471.11, also clean installed with DDU, a few weeks ago and encountered a fairly serious problem where when waking the display while running Topaz (also happens while mining Ethereum with NiceHash) the PC would black-screen and hard-reset. I’ve never seen this phenomenon before and reverting to 462.59 resolved the problem, however, I want to see if others are having the same problem with the newer studio driver 471.41 before wasting my time updating. I’m compelled to update as I just picked up the game The Ascent and DLSS is greyed out for me as I’m on an older driver.
At first I considered it was a display specific problem (Samsung Odyssey G9) but visiting the official Nvidia Geforce 471.11 feedback thread there were others reporting the same exact issue with different displays. Going by the 471.41 feedback thread, apparently many of the problems people had with 471.11 have not been addressed so I’m hesitant to try 471.41.
