    My 1080Ti lost a lot of performance recently after the 456.38 patch and it's driver related I think as I disabled the HW Accelerated GPU scheduling and got some performance back but it's still not what it used to be say a year ago.

    The overlay is nice since you can over/underclock the GPU and adjust fans ingame.

    But it can be quite annoying to see those counters when using apps such as Windows Terminal (though I'm not sure if this "fix" works for Windows Terminal...)

    [EDIT] It seems to be working for Windows Terminal for now :)
