They must put these driver on diet. It weights over a gig when unpacked... that's size of an OS not a driver.

That's the side effect of unified drivers, while it makes it easier to find the latest driver for your hardware and easier for Nvidia/AMD to produce, it bloats filesize massively.

IMO they should move to web based drivers like printer manufacturers have, just download one <20MB package and it will copy the specific driver for your hardware from their server.

Besides drivers it carries a lot of other crap too... that's the sad part.

wait SLI profile for GOW4? i thought developer was supposed to do it themselves with DX12 instead of relying on profiles released by GPU maker.

Switching Nvidia Color Settings to Full Range does not save after restart it reverts back

That might be highly possible when using a software in testing phase, in this case, the OS.

I am having the same problem. Whatever triggers the driver to revert to limited RGB is not only restarting. I have not restarted my machine in a few days and it keeps reverting to limited color periodically.

Its so unpleasant at limited RGB that I am going to use an older driver till next version. I do not understand why it continues to default to limited RGB even when I am using displayport... does not seem to make sense. I also wonder why more people are not having or aware of this issue... Is it because they simply presume the driver defaults correctly? "Use Color defaults" on change resolution page is clearly limited RGB, the newer driver requires "Use NVIDIA color settings" to fix and adjusting of output dynamic range. If you are using displayport or hdmi and are not doing this, I wonder if your color is correct, and if it is, why does mine continue to be wrong by default using displayport.

FYI I received this link in response to an email I sent to Nvidia.

I did exactly as instructed in this guide, even disabled game mode, the driver still reverted to limited RGB. I gave up on Nvidia support because like most companies these days, I started getting multiple pat responses that had nothing to do with original message.
