    Such long running bugs are usually a sign of an application side issue.

    NVIDIA has completely separate "Issues not caused by NVIDIA" section in their release notes for those.

    Maybe they'll find the smoke generator eventually, WoW Shadowlands was blinking away quite a while too

    Yeah I always had the impression that it was bad code in games that cause a lot of issues which Nvidia/AMD provides in-driver workarounds for when they can.

    I remember AVP (Aliens Vs Predator) there was a thread about it on the official nvidia forum 2 years+ 24 pages long not a single reply from anyone at NV
    people who contacted NV were told the problem could not be fixed. Someone from the community looked at it figured out the problem (z buffer not being cleared afaik) downloaded the source code and fixed it. A couple of months later nvidia fixed it in their drivers - what a coincidence.

    Someone from the community also looked at the long loading times of GTA V Online that plagued the games for 5 years, he managed to shorten loading times by 70% with a simple fix, Rockstar implemented his solution 2 weeks later and gave him a prize.

    Sometimes developers are too dump or busy to actually fix their game properly.

    Looks like 47.11 added a new sharpening option to the game filters called Sharpen+:

    Has a few options: intensity, texture details, invert depth z-axis, invert depth y-axis

    People saying it's probably similar to reshade quint delc(depth enabled local contrast) sharpen. Some people reporting about 10% performance hit in some games. Haven't looked at it that closely myself.

    Part of GeForce experience and in essence an analogue of Reshade.

    Is GeForce Experience still locked to an Nvidia user account?
