    The PDF release notes, on page 11, mentions disabling performance counters via a developer menu in Nvidia control panel version 8.1.950.0, but the drivers seem to just contain the old version 8.1.940.0 which does not have that developer menu AFAICS.

    If you open the Nvidia Control panel go to the Desktop menu item and select "Enable Developer Settings". You should notice a developer category added between 3D Settings and Display.

    QUADRO DESKTOP/QUADRO NOTEBOOK WHQL DRIVER RELEASE 418

    Version: R418 U2 (419.17)
    Release Date: 2019.2.22
    Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, Windows 8 64-bit
    Language: English (US)
    File Size: 349.07 MB

    RELEASE 418 DRIVER CHANGES :

    • NVENC API has been updated to support HEVC B-frames on Turing GPUs.

    • NVENC API adds the capability to output the encoded bitstream, and motion
    vectors from Motion-Estimation-only mode to video memory. This avoids the
    overhead of copying the output from system to video memory for processing
    pipelines operating directly on video memory.

    • NVENC API now accepts CUArray as an input buffer. The SDK contains a sample
    application to demonstrate how to feed Vulkan surface to NVENC using Vulkan-
    CUDA interop.

     Optical Flow SDK 1.0 (Released Feb 11, 2019)
    This is a new API for Optical Flow and stereo disparity hardware engine, available on
    Turing GPUs.

     This release supports the following APIs :
    • Open Computing Language (OpenCLTM software) 1.2 for NVIDIA® KeplerTM and later GPUs
    • OpenGL® 4.6
    • Vulkan® 1.1
    • DirectX 11
    • DirectX 12 (Windows 10)
    • NVIDIA® CUDA® 10.0

    This driver installs nView Desktop Manager version 149.34.
    This driver adds security updates for driver components.

    Just to nitpick, these are not GeForce 419.67, these are "NVIDIA Creator Ready Driver 419.67" and not part of the "GeForce" driver family despite the numbering following suit

    Actually they are Geforce Creator Ready drivers. If you go to the download site the only way they appear for downloading is by selecting GeForce as the product type. :smile2:

    But if you check the driver result list every other driver says "GeForce Game Ready Driver" and these "NVIDIA Creator Ready Driver". Are the normal GeForce drivers GeForce GeForce drivers? :yep2:

    They are sub categories of Geforce driver. "Creator Ready Driver" just a sub category of Geforce drivers - "releases are timed to key creative application updates, ensuring the best compatibility and performance for those who depend on PCs for their creative work."
    Normal Geforce drivers are in their own sub category "Recommended/Certified". Both will work on Geforce hardware.

    Edit: I don't care for the naming convention. But seems they want to cater to Creative types with special driver releases fixing performance issues. My guess is this might be an occasional driver released to address specific Creator type bugs especially with the number of updated applications supporting Turing features.
