My motherboard (X570 master) had a bios update recently that added SAM, I decided to enable it just to see what would happen on Geforce 1080 ti.

And I found out that every game either crashed within 5-10 minutes of playing or computer just rebooted.

Disabled SAM and everyting is back to normal.

just FYI

Yeah, Nvidia hasn't added it to their drivers for any card yet. It is interesting that something that isn't coded for yet will cause a crash.

Weird, I've enabled the SAM related settings on my mobo and use a 3080 and didn't get crashes

It could be that there was a problem with the memory allocation.

I'm aware that it isn't enabled in the driver yet, usually even when feature is enabled in bios, but that option is supported by hardware it should be ignored.

anyway, just wanted to share an observation that i made
