A lot is made of using the Studio Driver version versus the Game Ready Drivers that NVidia are now supporting. Seemed to make a lot of sense but .....
Question - what testing is done by Adobe on Premiere Pro reference platforms to QA the latest NVidia SD driver?. Full/Some/None?
I would observe that Studio Drivers seem to be released more frequently, but if you read the release notes (if you have trouble sleeping some nights) then you will still see a lot of stuff relating to loads of Gaming issues. Fixes in the latest 471.11 release list only Games problems - not Creative Software issues?.
Why are we bothering to update these drivers if there is no documented reason?.
They just may give us a headache creating new problems.
I updated to 471.11 and found playback from the timeline (PP 15.2) is now not as smooth and is 'sticky'.
Tried PP 14.9 and still has same issues. Intel QuickSync still on latest driver.
Looks like I'll go back to the previous release. Anyone else have this issue with 471.11?
In many driver releases, the game drivers have had issues while the studio drivers just worked. But not all studio drivers have been workable either. So it's not something I automatically update when Nvidia releases a new driver, but I do pay attention here and elsewhere to see how drivers are working.
