“Functionally, there is no difference between NVIDIA’s Standard and DCH drivers,” NVIDIA explains. “While the base core component files remain the same, the way DCH drivers are packaged and installed differs from previous (Standard) drivers. When directly comparing the two driver types, the DCH driver package has a smaller size and a faster installation time than the Standard package.”
