    New driver makes you install Geforce Experience. 
     
    EDIT: Nevermind, I was half asleep when I installed.

    No it doesn't especially if you choose custom install. Then you can decide what components of the driver to install.

    Specs: AMD 2920X Threadripper, Corsair MP510 M.2, 128GB Corsair RGB Vengeance Pro,  ASRock X399 Taichi, Corsair 1000D, EVGA RTX 2070

    Yes it does, won't let you uncheck it in custom install, at least for me.
     
    I just uninstalled it after update.

    Well it allowed me to uncheck it. I suggest a clean uninstall and reinstall.

    The new driver increased my Time Spy score by about 200 points. I'm leaving the install alone for now.

    Open Issues in Version 418.81 WHQL
    As with every released driver, version 418.81 WHQL of the Release 418 driver has open issues and enhancement requests associated with it. This section includes lists of issues that are either not fixed or not implemented in this version. Some problems listed may not have been thoroughly investigated and, in fact, may not be NVIDIA issues. Others may have workaround solutions.
    For notebook computers, issues can be system-specific and may not be seen on your particular notebook.
    Windows 10 Issues
    [GeForce RTX 20 series]: Event ID 14 error appears in event viewer logs when Digital Vibrance setting is changed. [2488424]
    [SLI][Shadow of the Tomb Raider][G-SYNC]: Flickering occurs in the game when launched with SLI, HDR, and G-SYNC enabled [200467122]
    [G-SYNC]: With a G-SYNC and G-SYNC Compatible display connected in clone mode, flashing occurs on games played on the G-SYNC display with G-SYNC enabled. [200482157]
    [HDR][Ni no Kuni 2]: Enabling HDR causes the application to crash when launched. [2483952]
    [ARK Survival]: Multiple errors and then blue-screen crash may occur when playing the game. [2453173]
    [Batman: Arkham Origins]: PhysX fog renders incorrectly [2451459]
    [Firefox]: Cursor shows brief corruption when hovering on certain links in Firefox. [2107201]
    Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR) is not available for monitors with 4k2k timings. [2496987]
    Random desktop flicker occurs on some multi-display PCs [2453059] 
     
    Operating System Issues
    [Windows 10 Fall Creators Update][HDTV]: 12 bpc is automatically applied even on HDTVs that support only 8 bpc, resulting in a scrambled display. [2007663]
    To work around, open the NVIDIA Control Panel->Change Resolution page, select "Use NVIDIA color settings", then set the Output color depth to 8 bpc.
    When upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8, the system fails to retrieve the installed WHQL display driver. [1024416]

    Saw +250 on Port Authority and +40 on Time Spy Extreme, seems to be 3DMark friendly.

    They work just fine on 1080ti SC2 Hybrid.

    Those who abuse power, are nothing but scumbags!
     The challenge of power is how to use it and not abuse it. When you abuse it, it reverses on you and it hurts you.The abuse of power that seems to create the most unhappiness is when a person uses personal power to get ahead without regards to the welfare of others, people are obsessed with it. You can take a nice person and turn them into a slob, into an insane being, craving power, destroying anything that stands in their way.

    Updated to 418.81 and BFV would crash every game. Cleared Origin cache, did a repair on the game, and still had crashes. Rolled the driver back to 417.71 and played 6 games crash free.

    Seems BFV is just super finicky
    I've had nothing but issues with it. Thank God it was free.

    Updated driver, played a couple rounds no issues. 
     2080 TI FTW HC @2115 Mhz / 8000Mhz- 46C on Ultra around 100 fps average, with spikes to 120 fps. Driver seems to have boosted fps a bit.

    Those with lockups, game crashes and tdrs,
     
    try disabling the container service and going about your normal game play.
     
    With any luck they should no longer occur,  you can go back to hte last working driver after but just want  user confirmation the issue is the container service.

    Major problems with steam directly after updating this driver. Did a firmware update with my logitech headset a few minutes later and thats causing problems also. Unsure which is the exact cause of problems. Anyone else having steam crashes at opening after downloading this driver?

    I'll give this a shot. BFV was the only game I had issues with after the update, though I did have one random BSOD with an error I had never seen before. But it was just once, so I'll chalk it up to coincidence.

    I have my 2080tis feeding my AV Receiver, seems to have screwed with Atmos.  After reinstalling the Atmos driver, it now works, but still shows that I am in only stereo.  Bit odd.
