    This has probably been posted elsewhere on these boards but I only visit this sub-forum here so I thought I'd post it here.

    Nvidia have a new firmware update that primarily is to fix some sort of problem with Display Port performance but also gives HDMI a performance boost.

    Download here:

    NVIDIA Graphics Firmware Update Tool for DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4

    Instructions on how to install here:

    TIP..: Nvidia upgrade firmware of your graphics card for more fluid graphics and fps - ED Forums


    PLEASE NOTE. THIS IS A FIRMWARE UPDATE AND NOT A DRIVER UPDATE MEANING THERE'S A RISK OF BRICKING YOUR GPU IF THE POWER CUTS OUT IN THE MIDDLE OF UPDATING IT. I ACCEPT NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY BRICKED GPUS IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG. TRY THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK.

    I've updated my firmware last night and no longer have framerate drops in Elite Dangerous in space stations with my current settings.

    The firmware isn't that new, I ran it on a my 1080ti purchased about a year ago and it says its already updated.

    That's strange, because the release date is only the 04/06/18 (not sure if that's April or June though).
    I just updated my 1080 and my card is only 3 weeks old.

    I wonder if it already out for the 1080ti and then they rolled it out for the others later.

    I did it too. Don't think I saw much difference but glad I did it anyway. I will be selling it soon the last thing I need is a disgruntled buyer due to shonky firmware.
