I previously posted the 425.51 Quadro changelog, which is of course wrong because 425.51 is 418 U5 branch while 430.64 is based on 430 U2.

Branch

• 05/05/2019, 26.21.14.3064
• r430_58-4

Own findings

• The Telemetry part is now a module of the display container (nvdisplay.container.exe) (the main telemetry part was removed from the NVIDIA Telemetry service) which means it can't be removed because you can't remove the process by itself, however it is activated by default but you an opt-in/opt-out. This change is not fixable/revertible with any script or program.
• NVIDIA renamed "Issue and Updates" to "Top Issues and Updates"
• As requested I provide now DCH RePacks.
• I do not integrate "Xtreme-G Modded" tweaks, because these changes are placebo and there is no evidence (benchmarks) etc which proves that these old and very outdated tweaks still work. Please do not use my eMail to ask me questions about this anymore, I simply do not believe in placebo.

Workaround for a "bug" which is not a bug - An (almost) Empty NVIDIA Control Panel

Picture by venturi

Some users might see an empty control panel after they installed the DCH version, this is not a bug and on purpose! This basically means that your Windows Store could not fetch the NVIDIA Control Panel Update which is required after each new driver installation to load the "missing" resources. Make sure you Windows Store has internet access and that the NVIDIA Display Driver Container process is running.

The reason why the NVIDIA Container requests internet access is because of this, there are other factors too but mainly because of this.

Changelog

  • Unknown

Own findings

  • No telemetry included
  • It's not a traditional "Game Ready" driver (don't use it for gaming!)
  • DXR is still not 100% functional in several games due to WDDM 2.6 and other changes
  • DirectX 12 Memory leak fixed

Why is the driver so big (over 535 MB)?

• The driver has exactly the same file size (as the prev. WUS driver), the used compression is different + it was copied (extracted files) from the C:\WINDOWS\SoftwareDistribution\ dir.

Warning

- I have not really any source on this except some unknown guy claiming the driver is real, I need to scan it via AV + validate that the signatures aren't faked then I'm going upload it! PCBeta is in general not to be known as a trustworthy source.

Original driver download

• Via WSUS only - Windows Insiders (Slow Ring), mirror by an unknown user is uploaded here.

Branch

• 04/08/2019, 26.21.14.3025
• 421_76-8

Own findings

• WDDM 2.6
• The driver is not NDA or Beta
• Several memory leaks in several games aren't fixed (same like in the original GRD)
• Older NVCP is included 8.1.940.0
• Pretty much all bugs which are included in the GRD (multi-monitor, popup, tray-icon etc)

No RePack, WUS driver does not contain telemetry or external software like GFE (only HD audio driver is included).

Own findings

• Driver was also released as Quadro driver
• WDDM 2.5 (that's why it has a lower branch compared to 430.00)

Own findings

WDDM 2.6
• PhysX is not included, same as Vulkan, GFE etc.
• HD audio driver v.1.3.38.13 is included
• Driver (of course) works for all users but originally was created for Windows Insiders.
• The first official WSUS WHQL WDDM 2.6 driver.
• The driver is slower (in all aspects) because the focus is a stable driver (meaning: not a benchmark or game driver, peppercute confirms this with his 418.91 vs 430.00 benchmarks). Keep in mind that the test/benchmark is not really accurate since different OS versions are tested in this example.
• Multi-Monitor Tray-Icon bug + G-Sync Popup annoyance after a long time of idle (still unfixed).

No RePack (only a mirror since nVidia releases another driver soon) + the WSUS drivers coming without extras like Vulkan, GFE etc.
