It seems that a lot of GPU problems revolve around specific versions of drivers. Though NVidia has their own support structure, you can often learn from information reported by others who fold.

Latest Geforce Game Ready Drivers

Postby JimboPalmer » Tue Jul 09, 2019 6:38 pm

Geforce WHQL Game Ready Driver for Windows 431.36 is out 7/9/19
Geforce Linux x64 Display driver 430.34 is also out 7/9/19

I am running the Windows version, for F@H, nothing seems to have changed. Update if you also game.

I upgraded to 430.86 (Win) recently and saw no noticeable changes. Time to read the changelog for 431.

I am still running 418, as it gets me higher PPD scores than 430.26 or 430.16 in Linux.
Haven't tried 430.34 yet.

I did notice, but it can be just my imagination, that 430 drivers are more forgiving when overclocking too high.
They seem to throttle down easier, making it harder to reach the overclocking frequency I'd like to reach.
Eg: if I want to overclock the GPU by 100 Mhz, it will only overclock by 75.
When I do 125Mhz, it'll overclock by 90 or 95. I'll have to pull it all in the 135Mhz zone for it to reach a 100Mhz actual overclock.

418 seems more stable in that, where 100Mhz is closer to an actual 100Mhz overclock.

What is the OpenCL Platform Version in these drivers ?

I have OpenCL 1.2 CUDA 10.1.120 in 430.39 ... if this build didn't change, it has no chances to change anything for FAH.

FAH requires OpenCL 1.2 or greater. (It used to work with 1.1 but it lacked FP64 and could only manage smaller proteins.)
Many drivers support V2.0 but AFAIK, FAH doesn't takk advantage of any of those features.

On Windows 7 I use nvidia driver 425 with gtx 1080ti. For the new nvidia RTX Super GPUs you need nvidia driver 431 and also for latest Windows 10 update

431.60 is out for Windows 7/27, still as for years, OpenCL 1.2.

Face it, Nvidia is not trying to promote OpenCL.

It's been ages since they updated the OpenCL drivers ... we're still using OpenCL 1.2 CUDA 10.1.102.

But it is still possible that OpenCL compiles to faster code, maybe using CUDA under the hood.

I installed 396.02 dated 8/20/19. It seems to work normally, I did not notice a speed up or slow down. Nor did I expect one.

It's an old driver ... or you made a mistake in the version number ...

I see 436.02 / 2019.8.20 for the latest driver ...

Someone has to explain how NV deals with their drivers revisions ... OpenCL driver build seems older in latest drivers than in previous one.

I installed 436.02 and here is how it looks :

It's been a while since I last saw some changes in OpenCL/FAH performances in drivers ... :(

I'm having a head scratcher with my 1080Ti and Win10-1903. If I install driver nVidia Driver 388.xx I can get the F@H Windows app (7.5.1) working my system, I just have to manually set OpenCL in the application to (I think 2). But I've updated to the two latest nVidia Drivers and I cannot get F@H to run on this GPU.. If I look at GPU-Z > Advanced > OpenCL.. I have nothing.. No Device Found..

with OpenCL on nVidia being bundled with the driver. what do I do?
