NVIDIA Studio Drivers provide artists, creators, and 3D developers the best performance and reliability when working with creative applications. To achieve the highest level of reliability, Studio Drivers undergo extensive testing against multi-app creator workflows and multiple revisions of the top creative applications from Adobe to Autodesk and beyond.

Applications
The January NVIDIA Studio Driver provides optimal support for the latest creative applications including Affinity Photo (now with GPU-acceleration) and the NVIDIA Broadcast 1.1 Update.
In addition, this release also provides support for the latest NVIDIA Studio laptops powered by new GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs.

(Quadro) Driver Name Change

With the introduction of NVIDIA RTX products powering the next generation of professional visual, compute, and AI platform solutions for the enterprise, the Quadro driver will be transitioning to the NVIDIA RTX Enterprise brand to better align with new and future products. NVIDIA RTX Enterprise drivers will continue to provide users with the same level of enterprise-class quality, reliability, performance, and security as previous Quadro drivers. These new drivers will not only deliver the latest features and improvements for NVIDIA RTX GPUs, but also for current and previous generation Quadro GPUs.

The driver branch name will also transition from "Optimal Driver for Enterprise" to "Production Branch." All the same enterprise attributes of the driver branch will remain. The new branch name will now allow driver types to be consistently referenced across other enterprise GPU products as well, such as Data Center GPUs.

NVIDIA RTX Production Branch Driver

Release 460 is a 'Production Branch’ (PB) release. PB drivers are designed and tested to provide long-term stability and availability, making these drivers ideal for enterprise customers and other users who require application and hardware certification from ISVs and OEMs respectively.

PB drivers are a superset of the NVIDIA Studio Drivers and provides all the benefits of the Studio Driver of the same version, in addition to NVIDIA RTX-specific enhancements and testing.

What’s New in Version 460 U3

  • Added support for NVIDIA Broadcast 1.1
    • Updated noise removal with more noise detection profiles
    • Added new performance mode for virtual background, allowing higher FPS
    • Added options to configure camera settings
  • GPU Acceleration for Affinity Photo Adds hardware acceleration for performance improvements in pixel-based tasks, such as
  • filter effects, adjustments, and brush tools.
  • Added 3DXpert application profile.

Fixed Issues in Version 460 U3

  • [Adobe Premiere]: The application causes the PC to freeze after driver update when using Adobe Mercury Engine.
  • [Arnold Suite 6.1.0.0]: The application test pass rate drops to 15%.
  • [Arnold]: Disk caches occasionally become corrupted, resulting in compilation errors or application misses.

Is the modded inf out for this driver ?  😄

Edited by Ricko

Modded INF attached, only for the Windows 10 DCH driver

Disable driver signature before installation

Unpack driver with 7zip, copy modded INF into "Display.Driver" folder and install driver via have disk method (setup.exe will fail)
Confirm warning screen

Check successful installation in GPU-Z->advanced tab->WDDM->UMD driver name

If you encounter Code 43, try nvidiaInspector.exe -RestartDisplayDriver (in worst case after every Windows start) or disable fast boot in BIOS

Click here to change advanced graphics settings

Finally keep in mind that the half-yearly Windows updates wipe unsigned drivers.


Mobile Kepler users please review NVIDIA's official support plan.
Technically it means, mobile support has been arbitrarily removed from installer files (INF),  so a modded INF is mandatory to use this driver with mobile Kepler GPUs

Binary compatibility within one GPU generation can be guaranteed under certain conditions because they share the basic instruction set


Modded INF is also mandatory if you replaced your notebook GPU with an aftermarket model.

"Both PNP ID and ACPI ID consist of two parts: a Vendor ID, followed by a product identifier. Each manufacturer of these devices must be assigned an industry-unique Vendor ID... The Device Manufacturer is responsible for assigning this identifier to each individual product MODEL. Once an identifier is assigned to a product model, it must not be assigned to any other product model manufactured by the same company (that is, that uses the same Vendor ID)."

Driver works but for some reason I don't have the nvidia control panel. What should I do to get it back?

Goto subfolder DisplayDriver/NVCPL
doubleclick the *.APPX file

Otherwise there is a copy at

Would this work for a Dell OEM Quadro M4000M on an HP EliteBook 8770w running W10?

That's what i meant with "aftermarket model" in the description.

The trick in the modded INF is to remove the SUBSYS_IDs

Just try and let us know the outcome.

I couldn't get the driver to work. I am trying to install the manual way by updating the driver through device manager, I can't make sense out of all the different tutorials on the web so if anyone can help that would be awesome. If it's the wrong section please direct me to the correct one.

My ID is VEN_10DE&DEV_13F9&SUBSYS_176C103C&REV_A1

Thanks.

EDIT: I think I figured it out. Everything is working, just don't have PhysX or NCPL, running LTSB version of W10 so no appx support.

Missing PhysX is an occasional hiccup, get it separately here or here

If you don't want to update Windows for whatever reason, start all over with the legacy (ie not DCH) NVIDIA installer.
You need a different modded INF though. Would you like to make your own one?

Sure, find out your device ID xxxx with GPU-Z

Download https://fr.download.nvidia.com/Windows/461.40/461.40-notebook-win7-64bit-international-whql.exe

Unpack driver with 7zip

Open nvdmi.inf in eg Notepad++ and inject your GPU like this:

  • [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.6.1]
  • %NVIDIA_DEV.xxxx% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_xxxx
  • %NVIDIA_DEV.0FC6.068B.1028% = Section001, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0FC6&SUBSYS_068B1028
  •  
  • [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.6.3]
  • %NVIDIA_DEV.xxxx% = Section003, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_xxxx
  • %NVIDIA_DEV.0FC6.068B.1028% = Section003, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0FC6&SUBSYS_068B1028
  •  
  • [NVIDIA_Devices.NTamd64.6.2]
  • %NVIDIA_DEV.xxxx% = Section002, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_xxxx
  • %NVIDIA_DEV.0FC6.068B.1028% = Section002, PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0FC6&SUBSYS_068B1028
  •  
  • [Strings]
  • DiskID1 = "NVIDIA Windows (64 bit) Driver Library Installation Disk 1"
  • FLG_ADDREG_KEYONLY = 0x00000010
  • NVIDIA = "NVIDIA"
  • NVIDIA_A = "NVIDIA"
  • NVIDIA_DEV.xxxx = "NVIDIA GeForce xxx"
  • NVIDIA_DEV.0FC6.068B.1028 = "NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650"

Disable driver signature before installation

Install driver via have disk method if setup.exe fails
Confirm warning screen

Hello,

thanks a lot for this!

I've managed to get a 780M I have installed on a 2011 iMac to work great with this driver (using modded .inf). Previously I was stuck at version 425.31

Strangely, as other user has noticed, Nvidia Control Panel does not work, even if I reinstall from driver folder or download from Microsoft, it never shows up (not that I care much).

I'm not familiar with bootcamped Macs.

Do you also use an old LTSB/LTSC version of Windows?

No, it's just a standard windows 10 install in Mac hardware:

I am getting the following error message. Not sure what to do. 

I think I read in the instructions that mobile support was removed and I can add it myself, but I am not sure how to get my Device ID with GPU-Z. Not sure which number exactly is my Device ID.

I am unable to get these modded drivers to work :( I have an Alienware M17x R4 that's been updated with a GeForce 970M, and therefore can't use the 'regular' drivers. I've manually unzipped the drivers, disabled driver signature, and am using NVCleanstall, but it only allows me to use setup.exe and that still reports that it's not compatible with install hardware. I can't upgrade driver via device manager, as it's greyed out :(
