    Seems to be working fine for me. I’ve tried it with both Windows 10 & 11. I thought maybe it had issues with 10, as I tried that OS with a different build from my main that’s running 11, but I think that my GPU is what was causing game crashes. Well, my overclock is likely what caused them. This last 3080 Ti I got is an absolutely horrible overclocker. Can’t run it much faster than stock clock speeds with the power/voltage slider maxed out.

    Its not common that drivers fix something instead of making performance worse
