Warning regarding the new Nvidia 497.09 drivers

Recommended Posts

I just tried to load a flight twice in MSFS. In both cases I had CTD during loading to the airport. That must be the issue.

Cheers, Pete

Went back to 496.76 and back to normal - no CTDs or blue squares. Definitely the drivers.

MY rule, if your present driver is doing OK, don't (Word not allowed)  with it.....

That's fair. Although 99.9% of times driver updates are fine. I can count on one hand the number of times I've needed to rollback, this time included. The QA is usually pretty solid.

Been simming for around 3 decades. I have never downloaded a new driver, and saw any real improvement in anything.

Mainly helps for new titles if you're into other gaming.

I don't do any games except flight sim, and once I get a driver that works, I stick with it.

Causing CTDs and blue texture squares.

Quite a few reports on the official forums:

New Nvidia 497.09 Always CTD - Community / General Discussion - Microsoft Flight Simulator Forums

You saved me the headache from upgrading to the latest driver - glad I caught this thread.

A good reason to stay with trusty 457.30 then.

The 457.30s are still the best.  Not sure if that's the case for those in VR though

It does bring improvement in some case such as DLSS support on specifically game,but it will be revealed in the changelog. I have experience this in the Red Dead Redemption 2 and that is tremendously improve. 

I think we need some big news on the changelog otherwise the update is not necessary if MSFS has not mentioned. I don't do any other games either.
