NVIDIA Launches GeForce 511.17 WHQL Drivers

NVIDIA today released the latest version of GeForce driver software. Version 511.17 debuts the 510-series version numbering for the software. This driver introduces support for the GeForce RTX 3080 12 GB graphics card the company stealthily launched today. The drivers also fix a bug with "Detroit: Become Human," where random stuttering was observed in the game; flickering text in Windows with 12-bpc color enabled; and the mouse pointer getting frozen when toggling HDR from within Windows Control Panel, after enabling G-SYNC from NVIDIA Control Panel.

New Features and Other Changes
  • This release supports the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (12 GB) GPU.
Fixed Issues in this Release
  • [Detroit Become Human]: Random stuttering/freezing occurs in the game. [3389250]
  • Flicker/disappearing text when 12-bit color is used [3358884]
  • [HDR][G-Sync]: Mouse pointer gets stuck after turning on HDR from the Windows Control Panel or after toggling G-Sync from the NVIDIA control panel. [200762998]
To work around, click the mouse (right or left button). The mouse cursor will be sluggish for a few seconds before returning to normal operation.

Known Issues
  • [Deathloop][HDR]: TDR/corruption occurs in the game with Windows HDR enabled. [200767905] If this issue occurs, toggle the Windows HDR setting.
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed may crash on courses where players drive through water. [3338967]
  • In multi-monitor configurations, the screen may display random black screen flicker. [3405228]
  • [NVIDIA Advanced Optimus][NVIDIA Control Panel]: After setting the display multiplexer type to "dGPU", the setting is not preserved across a reboot or resume from S4. [200779758]
  • [NVIDIA Image Scaling][Desktop]: The screen moves to the upper left corner on cold boot when Image Scaling is applied to the desktop. [3424721] Do not apply NVIDIA Image Scaling to the desktop. It is intended only for video upscaling or for games which do not run with a scaling resolution unless the same Image Scaling resolution is applied on the desktop.
  • NVIDIA Image Scaling][DirectX 11 video apps]: With Image Scaling enabled, video playback is corrupted or results in a system hang after performing an HDR transition. [3431284]

I downloaded and installed the Studio Driver 511.09 - WHQL and so far no issues. I will report back as it goes.

Edit: studio driver still good, no issues yet.

Meanwhile 511.23 Game Ready has been released.

Core drivers are identical to the CUDA SDK version.
Difference is the installer and the WHQL certificate. - nope, still reads beta
