Doesn't look like there are any changes other than moving to the new WDDM version. The 20H1 update adds feature level 12_2 to DirectX, which includes new DirectX Ultimate features to the API.

Reminder to remove the "-dch" from the download link to get the standard driver package that comes with the control panel.

If you get the DCH version you need to install the control panel from the Microsoft Store.

You can do it that way but there is no way to predict when it will download from my experience.

This fix was actually in the last 445 release, which is why I said nothing new. From memory, all the fixes listed in this release were in the last 445 release.

It's not out, yet. It is being deployed tomorrow. If you don't see it through automatic updates then you can always run the update assistant and get it manually that way.

I could have sworn when I read the release notes on the last release it claimed it was a "Windows 10 Issue" under the Open Issues section. I could be wrong, but I had skipped it for a reason and stayed on the 442.74 release set...

Getting my 1080ti's to work in SLI and span 3 monitors has been a chore for over 2.5 years.

Getting the drivers to properly recognize left.. right.. and center correctly was always an hour after a driver update.

Taskbar would appear wherever it wanted. Top.. bottom... sides.. or would lose focus and span all 3 monitors.

Shortcuts would be on the left screen always.

When taskbar worked at center screen, hitting the start button always brought up the menu on the far left screen.

Just to name a few things. Booting this rig was always a crapshoot of any or all of the above.

Installed the new drivers from Armenius link and all issues appear to be fixed.

:LOL:


**edit**

Ok.. scratch all that. Drivers still suck. Turns out the NCP was not spanning correctly and had disabled SLI. Set correctly and the suckage has returned.

I guess there's still no word on the no sound issue when coming out of suspend mode with HD 1.3.38.26. I'm still rolling back to HD 1.3.38.21 manually after installing the latest graphic drivers.

Any first hand experience with hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling feature that we can enable now?

I'm still waiting to update to 20H1 until a couple bugs are fixed, but there is plenty out there since it has been in insider builds for a few months now. In CPU bound situations it's supposed to spread the load out more evenly among your CPU cores. It is also supposed to make your framerate more consistent in V-Sync or FPS-limited scenarios. You may see a slight bump in average FPS (5%) overall. I have not read about any kind of detrimental effects or issues when using this feature. This feature is part of DX12 Ultimate, so you also need a driver that supports the updated API in addition to W10 20H1.
