Right, not seeing it.

Did you download the Game Ready Driver (GRD)?  I believe the sharpening feature is not included in the Studio Driver (SD).

Good observation. That could very well be it. If not, then I would do a clean install to drivers by using DDU.

I am running 4K would that be why? is this only to help upscale?

No, it is fundamentally different from upscaling and should work with all resolutions.

Not seeing these new setting with my 1080TI 😞

That's odd. 😕

You could try confirming that you in fact do have the 441.08 driver installed. 

Open NVCP, at bottom left click system information and the driver version will be at the top of the list in the pop up window.

I see the option with my 1080ti running a 4k resolution.

Ok, got it by doing a clean install of the drivers. Couple of questions. 

1. What value should I start with?

2. Could this replace SSAA? Would image sharpening and MSAA be enough?

3. With the clean driver install, in the NVIDIA Control panel - should I leave this as is or select: use my preference emphasizing: Quality? or Let the 3d application decide?

Just did a couple flights with Sharpening set to 0.60 along with OTT set to 1.5 using my Rift CV1.  This made a significant improvement in clarity, both in cockpit and the outside view.  Didn't appear to have an impact on FPS.  I like it so far.  Anyone know what the "ignore file grain" does?

Really? Nvidia states on the release notes

http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/441.08/441.08-win10-win8-win7-release-notes.pdf

under "Image Sharpening Feature" (p. 5) "Scaling will not work with VR". I tried it myself with my Acer WMR headset in Prepar3d and didn't observe any improvement, while Prepar3d on the 2d screen indeed gets a noticeably sharper image which I like.

What do others observe w.r.t. VR? Did I misunderstand the reference above? Perhaps I am only missing some setting? Maybe, it just works for the Rift but not for WMR headsets?

Thanks and kind regards, Michael

For me it does not work in my Reverb HMD, on my screen it works.

Gents,

 

Does it mean that NVI might be sent to the retirement? No more 4xSGSAA?

I'll play around some more.  I tried the .60 sharpening and found it barely noticeable with my setup/settings.

Really?...Yes, for me I did see an improvement.  The Nvidia statement does say "Scaling" will not work in VR.  Unless I am misreading it there is a Scaling setting that is separate from the Sharpening setting.  I haven't activated the "Scaling" setting, just the "Sharpening".  The improvement is very noticeable to me in regards to the sharpness of the text  and instruments in the cockpit.

I turned sharpening on and like what I see using the default settings so I plan to keep it on.

A couple of people are asking if this is a substitute for AA - it is not. It can make textures and fonts look crisper, but if anything it can making aliasing issues even worse. IMO the trade off is worth it.

On my set up it is the difference between looking through a dirty pane of glass and one that has just been washed. Brilliant, crisp and sharp.

To me, the sim looks sharper and crisp after turning it on. I might play with different values but it looks good with nvidia default values.

I wonder if it has a  performance impact if you crank up the setting to 1.0
