NVIDEA creator ready drivers !

bitman wrote on 3/22/2019, 4:31 AM

I just stumbled on something new: apparently NVIDEA is releasing now specialized drivers to improve stability and performance of creative applications, such as video rendering, foto editing etc.., a bit an equivalent like NVIDEA is doing for a long time for games, the so called "game ready drivers". I have not tried them out yet, I do not see Vegas and Davinci mentioned, but others like adobe products, blender, cinema4d are.

It does not matter if they mentioned specifically Davinci or Vegas.

I just installed it yesterday morning. All i can say is, that the first test amazed me.

I had just a recent project. The video was 14 minutes long in 1080p. It almost rendered it in realtime (without any filters it would have rendered faster than realtime), it was finished about in 15 minutes.

With the new Drivers the encoding was speed up, it took only about 12 minutes.

I was amazed, that it really had a significant impact like that. But later found out, its very understandable, because they clearly focused on the NVENC structure to boost that part, and all i can say is, they did a good job so far.

In the case of the editing process itself and increasing preview speed etc. i did not notice really any performance gains. But i am already glad that the rendering is way faster.

Nice! About damn time!!! So tired of downloading drivers optimized for fortnite only to find it breaks NVENC compatibility in Vegas.

Really? Well, Fortnite cant possible be that important that you prioritized it over NVEnc right?

As far i have read, you will still get anyway installed both "drivers", and you can switch it in GForce Experience anytime from one to the other. But since i personaly did not installed that crapware, i assume am stucked with the creativ drivers. Anyway i did not noticed any difference in my WoW on 4K, and it is worth it for me that i get decreased rendering times.

"Really? Well, Fortnite cant possible be that important that you prioritized it over NVEnc right?"

Their driver updates are always optimized for "X" popular game... if you want the driver update, and the occasional performance or stability improvement that comes with it, you download the game ready driver. I'm glad to see that we are no longer on the back burner, and only get performance increases if it happens to also benefit whatever popular video game is out at the time. That was my point.

Good to know. Thanks for sharing this.

I installed them now, but I did not see much gain in a very quick comparison before and after installing: 1 second gain in a 2 minute and again 1 second gain in a 4 minute 4K render looks like normal render time spread. But the good thing is you can switch between "gaming" and "creative" on the fly. I did notice the drivers were not yet WHQL certified, and as such they are not automaticly offered, you have to get them manually.

@bitman could it be that you are using an older nvidia card, meaning 9xx and below generation for NVEnc?

@eikira Altough my RTX 2080ti is a few months old, I am sure I qualify😀, you can check my signature.

Well, i guess something is odd with your setup. There is no way your NVEnc would not have improved at all.

I also do not see any advantages of those Creative drivers and on my desktop with GTX 1050 Ti I had a repeated loss of 3-5 seconds rendering with NVENC option of a 1 minute 2,7K AVC file.
And because I saw all kind of strange things happening there, I had to switch a few times the connections of my multiple monitor setup, I deleted those Creative drivers and change them again to my "normal" ones. Happy user again!

If you are worried about downloading from offsite. The official nVidia site has them:

See screenshot below. (Sadly, none for my old 760 though).

is this driver any different from the standard Nvidea download with the exact same version number?
