Own findings

• Driver was also released as Quadro driver
• WDDM 2.5 (that's why it has a lower branch compared to 430.00)
• Fallout 76 G-Sync does not work
• The original Standard Driver package was damaged (NVidia what did you do - see picture below - they re-uploaded the driver 25 min after the original release so the signatures changed!)
• Trippe-Monitor-Bug still present
• Tray icon bug still there
• Annoying G-sync popup bug still there
• nVidia Control Panel upgrade bug, some people (like me) getting an older CP version 8.1.940.0 (latest is 8.1.951.0)

nVidia corrupted driver

Some people get an older CP version, only the Store version DCH automatically gets a newer version
