Happens often.
442.01 was a hotfix driver and 450.12 a leaked driver. do you see the same issue on official nvidia whql release drivers?


hmmm works for me. any chance i could log onto your system with teamviewer to check a few things?

Problem does occur with Intel GPU 27. x branch drivers on i3-8300 CPU.
Is it possible for you to use a 27.x branch driver instead of 26.x ?

Even with the native W10 (1903, Build 18363.592) Basic GPU driver GPUZ tool does report a "beta" signature which is obsiouly a wrong indication.
GPUZ should investigate this wrong signature detection and do fix the bug.
Here are a set of various Intel drivers version tested with DXDIAG and GPUZ tools.
Drivers version branch 26.xx are correctly detected WHQL, branch 27.xx are NOT correctly detected WHQL.
DXDIAG tools does provide correct signature status as well for 26.xx and 27.xx branch.

I fixed that this morning, while playing with the Intel WHQL testing

Drivers version branch 26.xx are correctly detected WHQL, branch 27.xx are NOT correctly detected WHQL.
I suspect the 27.xx drivers are not WHQL but "attestation signed". Will download and check tomorrow

Just tested this, the new driver is indeed attestation signed, aka beta

Suggestion -- add a 3rd kind of drivers status except current TWO - Beta and WQHL.
Name it however you wish/think is best. :)

Yes, I do agree with Naki suggestion to provide one exact status driver, so GPU should be the unique tool to display a correct Intel driver status and so will avoid any confusion with DXDIAG tool status driver which do provide one 'approximate' information..

gpuz displays the correct driver status already, are you saying you prefer to confuse 99% of users by showing "attestation" instead of "beta" ?

IF "Attestation" equals "Beta", then of course no use or need to do this.
Maybe in a tooltip then? Unless of course Attestation is exactly the same thing as Beta, in which case tooltip would be also useless.

Dxdiag doesn't know about attestation signing. It will show whql for everything with a ms counter signature

Per Definition by Microsoft, attestation signing does not run a single of the whql tests.

Thank you ,Insider driver for testing and feedback should not be posted as WHQL.

I have a question, and perhaps I missed something, why are drivers not being downloaded from the makers of the drivers? For example, why are the Intel drivers in question here not being downloaded from Intel.com?

@W1zzard - is there such a thing as Beta drivers without attestation? :confused:
