    Has anyone noticed that the earlier 551 drivers ran hotter than this one? My liquid temperatures are at least 5°C lower both in games and when using Super Resolution + High Dynamic Range with YouTube videos. Both of my machines are full custom water cooled (CPU & GPU) and this was consistently observed across both machines (RTX-3090 & RTX-4090)

    Would be great to get some feedback on these.  I've been avoiding any of the 54x.xx and up drivers.  I took a chance and tried the 546.33's back in mid-December and after a month or so ended up DDU'ing and going back to the 537.34's because my monitors would randomly go black and lose signal for no apparent reason both in games and just on the desktop.  Completely stable for a couple weeks now since I went back to the older drivers.  I had seen a LOT of reports of similar behavior on the Nvidia forum starting with the 54x.xx series but it sounded like maybe it had improved.  Apparently not though.  Not seeing any indication in these new ones of a fix for that issue either is again keeping me from trying them.

    Just tried the new Nvidia app. Home screen reminds me of Microsoft Store.
     
    Anyone else getting blank global graphics settings page?

    Not seeing that here. Mine is fully populated. Do you have the Nvidia CP installed?

    The original Nvidia Control Panel is still there and working fine. I installed 551.61 without Geforce Experience.
    Do I need GFE for Nvidia app to work? I stopped installing it the day Nvidia started requiring to log in to use GFE.

    I've never installed GeForce Experience on any of my machines.

    I didn't have GFE installed prior to installing this new Nvidia Beta app linked in post #3 above.  GFE is now part of this new app though.
