    True. I don't have a Windows Store account and had no problems installing the driver including the NV control panel. (clean install after using DDU) Previously I was using the Standard driver only.

    I think I read somewhere it side loads the control panel and doesn't require Windows Store access.

    They've dropped Win7 support with R495, and thus there is zero need to provide old distribution option - it was needed for Win7 support only basically.
    R470 is LTSC though so there will likely be newer R470 releases down the road, until Oct 2024, with vulnerabilities patches and such. These should still be available for Win7 and support Kepler as well.

    It may not be consistent, but think games you may be having problems with. The purpose of this driver is to fix only one issue, but according to forum reports some issues still exist as indicated by the GeForce 496.76 "Windows Issues" list. I'd wait for the next WHQL drivers unless NIS is currently working in your games.

    i got a similar issue. instead of random black screen, it always flickers when the framerate switch between under 120 fps and 120 fps. So as long as the game is heavy enough to make it constantly run under 120 fps, no flicker.

    hopefully this new driver truly fixed that.
