    Oddly enough, the release notes on the driver say that it supports the 9 series. The Geforce download page only offers it for the 10 and 20 series.
    Nope. Will not install on a 9 series GPU. There's a list of supported devices included as a text file.

    Nvidia reddit thread about GRD & CRD to help people select which one is right for you: Driver 419.67 - Creator Ready Driver. Provides the optimal experience for Autodesk Arnold, Unreal Engine 4.22, REDCINE-X PRO, Adobe Lightroom, and Substance Designer by Adobe. : nvidia


    If you use your GPU mainly for Content Creation, you should use CRD.

    I asked Sean Pelletier on Twitter (he's the driver guy at NVIDIA)

    A bit confused on GRD vs CRD

    Does this include all the GRD optimization and fixes? or some?

    How about release frequency? Major creative apps releases I assume?

    He responded

    GRD release cadence dictated by game calendar, CRD by creative app calendar. Feature parity between both -- though GRD will get game-relevant changes first (more frequent releases). CRD will get creative app-relevant changes first.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I don't get it. What if I game and creator on the same box?

    (I'm assuming most people do)



    Creator apps get updated once, maybe twice a year so why not just add them to the next game ready release after that?

    They do, they have feature parity after a while. They're basically the same driver, but released on different schedules.

    GRD drivers are released on the game release schedule, so when new games come out that need patches, the GRD is patched and ready.

    CRDs are tested and released with each tooling update.

    So, if you do both on the same box and play a lot of newly released games, I'd go for the GRD. It'll most likely contain the latest CRD relevant patches and work just fine.

    I installed the 419.67. For reasons that are hard to explain, it just didn't act quite right. Pics and vids were somehow just a little off in quality. Can't put the right words to it. Went back to 419.35 (cheated, did a Macrium restore )

    Using the link on post #1, I get these two results. Using "ALL" and "Recommended/Certified. For my rig, there is no "normal user", gamer or not, version 419.67. If I'm reading this wrong, or misinterpreting, please say so. As for now, I'm staying on 419.35.

    Yup, specially for noob like me.
    is it better to automatically update driver via geforce experience and not clean install via DDU as I have done so far?

    Since DDU was recommended I've been doing it ever since. If you notice weird behavior doing updates direct from Geforce Experience I would return to using DDU.

    Also disconnect your internet cable before uninstalling and installing new drivers! Windows 10 updates likes to sneak in a horribly out of date Nvidia driver as soon as you hit the uninstall button...
