    Looks like a installer bug .... My windows 7 driver installation had no issues.
    Edit: Can confirm the Win 10 and Win 7 downloads are not currently available.

    I hate that you have to use Geforce Experience to apply the new sharpening filter, but it's very nice for games that have excessive AA blurring, especially Apex Legends. I can now play with TAA and dynamic frame-rate, because the game doesn't look like a Vaseline smear, especially when the resolution drops. The sharpening also looks pretty good in Battlefield V, but I had to turn the strength down a bit. In-game TAA Low with Nvidia sharpening looks much better than TAA High, which has it's own sharpening applied.

    Low latency set to Ultra also seems to work very well with Doom, Apex Legends. I think it causes a little bit of stuttering for me in Battlefield V. Some people seem to have issues with it in particular games, so you probably should set it on a per-game basis instead of globally.

    Overall one of the best driver releases I've had because it actually added useful features. I have a GTX 1060, so those features are useful on pretty low-end gpus.

    I haven't used GF Experience for years but decided to try it due to the new sharpness filter. The interface is more simplistic and easier to use than before, and like not having to launch the games from GFE to get the overlay feature menu. I like the sharpening filter in that you can control the sharpening percentage applied in game. I haven't played with low latency feature but have read the higher the monitor frequency (120 Hz+) the less impact Ultra low setting will have, so a game by game setting is likely best. Will be interesting to see how integer scaling works on those old Dosbox games.

    Oh one issue I'm having is my overlay game filters will not save, so I have to add sharpening every time I play a game.

    Just tried XCOM2 and the filter was automatically applied in game after first using filter, saving and exiting the game. I did not have to open the overlay menu when I restarted the game for filter to take effect.

    Yah, I'm not sure what's wrong. Once I close my games the settings are lost and I have to redo it. Maybe I'll do a clean install of geforce experience and the drivers.

    Well, crap, and here I was looking forward to trying it out. But no way am I installing Geforce Experience on my machine.

    Yet another reason pushing me towards going AMD again for my next card.

    @pharma well, I discovered my windows 10 was dying a slow death. Some corrupt components and such that I had to fix with dism and sfc. Really nice ... Anyways, now that it's fixed everything seems to be working.

    Dang, drivers are over half a GB now. That's larger than many of the games that I play.

    Well, here's to hoping it doesn't break something in the games I regularly play.

    Some GF Experience installation options to avoid telemetry, etc...
    https://github.com/Moyster/BaiGfe

    Don't care for any type of telemetry (Nvidia, Google, etc..), so have added the "lite" block list to my custom ad blocker blacklist running on the router.

    Sigh, so, ever since I installed the Gears 5 performance drivers, performance in Windows has suffered in odd ways. For example, after the PC has been on for a day or two, dragging some windows for some programs becomes incredibly sluggish. Something that didn't happen with the previous NV drivers that I was using.

    Bleh. I think once I'm done with Gears 5, I'll revert to those older NV drivers again.
