    MC 2019.6 and Geforce GTX 1080 driver

    Has anyone that is using a Geforce GTX 1080 graphic card in their system updated their driver? The recommended Avid driver (411.95) will not install on my system as it is for a Quadro card. I am currently running an older driver for the Geforce 1080 (388.1) that worked fine prior to 2019.6 , but is not working properly with 2019.6. I have a dual monitor setup .After a few minutes I cannot right click on my secondary monitor or even use the pulldown menus. The primary monitor is working fine. There is a newer driver (430.86) for the Geforce 1080 . Wondering if anyone has tried it yet.

    Good to know. I’ll probably give it a try. I’m in between projects and I have a backup system.It’s going to take me a while to get used to the new interface too. Thanks.

    Re: MC 2019.6 and Geforce GTX 1080 driver

    I'm having serious issues with the new version both with scrubbing performance and with a weird still image that overlays  over the avid windows that looks like the window but is just an overlay giving the impression the its not reacting to mouse clicks but it is just a still image overlay of the actual windows beneath it.

    On previous versions the graphics driver versions made little to no difference with my GTX 1080ti.  I've always been on the latest version.

    The new Avid does not want the main display to be display 2, all sorts of window positioning issues when changing workspaces.  With a single display I have no issues with windows layouts.

    Scrubbing is still a showstopper for me though.

    So far I haven't noticed any issues using 417.35 with my 1080Ti. It's an older driver, but has remained stable with all my software since it was installed. It seems that most of the GTX updates are only for games, and since I don't have any on my system I just stay with what works for me.

    Re: MC 2019.6 and Geforce GTX 1080 driver

    Just an FYI for this thread - nVidia has released a special version of the GeForce 430.86 driver designated 'Studio Driver'. This driver has special tweaks to run with Resolve 16. The driver is also compatible with Quadro cards (at least newer Quadros such as the RTX designation).

    This driver also seems to work with my Quadro P4000 and since I'm compelled to use this driver when working with Resolve 16, I am also testing it with Media Composer 2016.6 (so far so good).

    This is the first time I can recall nVidia releasing GeForce drivers specifically targeting professional application (not games).

    BMD recommends this driver for Resolve 16 (including with the Quadro RTX6000 if you have sufficiently deep pockets).

    Your mileage may vary...

    Re: MC 2019.6 and Geforce GTX 1080 driver

    Just for some clarification, there are 3 versions:

    - Standard Gaming Driver

    - Creator driver (for everyone on non RTX cards) with a slower release update schedule

    - Studio Driver (for RTX cards so tenser cores can be used by creative software) also on a slower release schedule and does not work with my GTX 1080ti

     

    I am using the 430.86 standard gaming driver for my gtx 1080ti as it is slightly faster than the Creator Driver.

    I'll take your word for it that it didn't work for you, but as someone who has been extensively testing Resolve Studio 16, I have found that the 430.86 'Studio Driver' package has resolved a memory leak issue in Resolve that the standard 430.86 driver did not and this is with a Quadro P4000 which is not based on tenser cores. I can't explain why this is so but it is verified by many users posting on the BMD Resolve 16 beta forum (and few actually run with RTX hardware - most are reporting their experience with 1080 Ti and the like).

    Re: MC 2019.6 and Geforce GTX 1080 driver

    Not sure if your GTX1080 issues are related to this, listed in the 2019 Readme:

    Bug Number: MCDEV-9460. Windows 7 systems with Nvidia Maxwell or Nvidia Pascal cards
    might experience playback issues that could result in “Play Consumer timeout” errors.
    Workaround: Select “Disable GPU Effects” in the Render Settings dialog box.

    The 1080 is a Pascal card, but I notice you're on Windows 10.

    Regards,

    Richard

    It is my understanding that it is the studio driver that we need to install, especially for DaVinci, though it is working fine here on a Quadro P3200 for MC. This is a compound driver release in that it will install on both Geforce and Quadro cards. Although it may be faster to install the gaming option the advantges will be less accurate perhaps in media content creation progs. The RTX cards leverage use of BMD's new 'neural engine' in Resolve 16 and so other cards may not see much of an adavantage but it is working well, as I say, here in both MC and Resolve, and is a lot newer than Avids current one.

    Does the duel copy, 10bit render, and double pint precision still work on your quadro with the Studio Driver?

    Does the resolve community have more info on the advantages of the Studio Driver for GTX cards?

     

    I tried the first studio driver available and it said it was incompatible with my hardware, maybe the latest driver will work, I don’t know but will try.  So, at the time of testing, some months ago, the Studio driver only installed on RTX cards.  That left me with the Gaming diver and the Creator driver, which is just a gaming driver on a slower release schedule and is timed with the release of adobe software.

    From what I understood at the time, is that the Studio driver enables the Tensor cores on an RTX Cards to be used by software, a bit like CUDA was for the GPU, but now just for Tensor cores.

    Yes the dual copy engine works fine, in all functionality, both in normal editing and multicam. I learnt about this driver here and I believe after further trawling, only the paid Studio Resolve has the 'neural engine'. TBH, I don't notice any difference from the qualified Avid driver and this is just a test - I will probably return to 411.95. HP's performance monitor though recommends for Avid ISV certification 411.63. 

    I believe you should be able to install the studio driver on a Geforce because that's what's being used a lot on DaVinci, where raw power rather than precision seems to rulle the roost.

    When you downloaded the Studio driver, which platform did you select? I selected the RTX 20xx platform (even though I have a P4000). The default selection is RTX 20xx notebook and this was not compatible with my P4000 - so perhaps you downloaded the wrong version of the studio driver. The file name should be:

    430.86-desktop-win10-64bit-international-nsd-whql.exe

    and it's the 'nsd' in the name that is the hint.

    I have also installed this same driver on my M1000M (Quadro) on my Lenovo P50 laptop.

    While my cards do not have a neural engine, the NSD (Studio Driver) also corrects a memory management problem that lead to many 'GPU memory full' errors in Resolve 16.

    That's the one I downloaded and installed. I didn't have to select a platform - if you look at the readme http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/430.86/430.86-win10-nsd-release-notes.pdf, it says on page 29 which Quadro  notebook cards are supported and both the P3200 and M1000M are there.

    Interesting about correcting memory management problems in Resolve 16, but I hadn't been getting any anyway. As I say though, 430.86 works well in both progs.

    Edit: Sorry Barkin, I realised you were talking to Julian.
