    I definitely don’t have this version of Win10, nor do I know where to get it. I don’t have a CPU with that kind of architecture either.

    You’re way behind the times then – you need to upgrade! All the cool kids are running 74-bit

  3. Not seeing this listed in GeForce Experience, running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit 21H2 19044.1415 with an RTX2070.

    It looks like support for anything other than the recently released [URL=’https://forums.thefpsreview.com/threads/nvidia-announces-geforce-rtx-3080-with-12-gb-gddr6x-memory-and-reduced-hashrate-for-ethereum-mining.7702/unread’]GTX 3080 12GB “LHR”[/URL] isn’t yet in the cards, though I do get the following studio driver listed:

    Driver Version: 511.09 – Release Date: Tue Jan 04, 2022

  4. The driver is not yet listed here: [URL]https://www.nvidia.com/Download/Find.aspx?lang=en-us[/URL]
    Right now Tsing’s link appears to be the only way to get this driver.

  5. I can download the driver from the link, but attempting to install it on an RTX 2070 or GTX 1650 Ti (mobile) gives me this:

    It’s not listed because they haven’t released a “Standard” driver for 511.. You’d need to change the driver type to DCH to get 511..

    Aahh. I only grab non-DCH drivers.

  8. I’ll give it a whirl when I get home. I have a few boxes to update.

    I think it’s been since last September that I fired up my TR box. Now that I think about it.

    Been spending most of my time on the Manjaro system for gaming and the 2400G build, aka the regression pc for work stuff
