May simply be a coincidence but after installing this driver my computer started randomly losing signal to the monitor.
I've never had any issues with Nvidia drivers before, so I simply reverted and haven't had anymore resets.
I stand corrected, it was the game-ready version of the driver which caused the anomaly.
It was very strange...one minute I was checking e-mail and the next minute, it was as if somebody had pushed the reset button. My monitor went into standby mode through loss of signal.
The funny thing is I just reached over and turned the computer right back on.
It happened twice in three hours after installing the driver.
I used DDU in safe mode to remove the driver and all its components...then reinstalled the 419.35 I'd been using previously.
I've not had a single issue since.
This is the first time I can remember any driver causing an issue.
If you are after faster movie rendering and don't mind using NVENC (some people claim it has way worse output, I could never notice anything that would justify using way slower alternatives), you are better off using Voukoder export plugin instead - it can cut your export times in half, if not more.
