Oh, it was only the processor? Thought it was hammering the SSD/NVME... and a smidge of GPU usage unless someone can correct me?

Some were reporting much higher usage with the dwm.exe issue.... I had to go back to the previous drivers though as I was getting this awful hitching in my games! Very odd

NVIDIA RTX / QUADRO driver (516.25)


New Features in Version 515 U1
This release includes bug fixes and driver component enhancements to improve performance.
Support for Windows 11 22H2 operating system
Studio Application/Feature Support ...

To install on other cards ( if you want to risk doing it lol )


works well with 3090.

I hope we'll get a native geforce driver for win11 22H2 very soon with more optimizations for games.

Rock solid driver on both my RTX2060 and RTX2080S. Very stable FPS and very fluid feeling/smoothnes in games.KEEPERS!
Installed fine with nvcleaninstall + before I Have added PHYSYX and OPTIMUS FOLDER from previous driver, so my laptops with both RTX2060 and 2080S could work without problem.

Nvidia GeForce 516.31 Tesla ( Modified )

Use NVCleanInstal to install.

copy this archives in folder NVI2 of other drivers ie (NVIDIA GeForce 512.95)
NVI2\presentations.cfg
NVI2\presentations.dll
NVI2\progress.htm

Some are reporting very decent performance increases akin to the modified NVIDIA RTX / QUADRO driver (516.25)

Working brilliantly for both my RTX and GTX!! Just needed to set the right template ie for my GTX it was "Quadro M4000 as a hardware template and signature has been ticked".

Not many will do this though as I do like modified drivers :D
