I installed to test this driver on my Optimus laptop with Intel HD 4600 & GTX980m.
Nvidia drivers are the latest 350.12
The issues remain the same as with the previous driver: impossible to run many games (i.e. Dragon Age inquisition and Bioshock Infinite) at full screen.
The issues you mention are still under investigation by our development team. This beta driver was posted specifically to address a flickering display issue with some Intel NUC systems.
First issue with MadShaders v0.4.0/v0.4.1 reported on previous drivers has been fixed with this release.
Unfortunately both the other two issues remain:
2) 10 bit output bug P010/P016 - For H.264 & H.265
3) De-interlacing modes of new API v1.13 crash with this driver release too.
Also, I have to add one more:
4) With new MadShaders v0.4.1 the "Am I dreaming" demo seems to have artifacts while playing.
There are black spots, some times even small black lines in random places all over the screen.
You have to run the demo in fullscreen in order to find them easily.
Thanks for these drivers!! It's completely fixed the flickering display issues I was having. Tried a bunch of games that were all flickering in-game or started making my display flicker when I exited the game.
Asus Transformer T300 Chi Tablet
- Core M-5Y71 CPU
- HD Graphics 5300
Glad this issue seems to be fixed it was extremely annoying!!!
There is some flickering going on in the 2d menu when starting Crysis SP or Project Cars on my HD4600. Haven't seen this before. In 3d it seems fine.
I am really glad that this beta driver seems to have fixed my black screen flickering display while playing games. I have found another issue though, every time I unplug or plug the AC adapter, the screen will go black for around 3 seconds and goes back to normal (I have yet to know if this is caused by this beta driver or something else but I am certainly sure I haven't ran into this issue before. This has not happen on my old graphics card driver or on any graphics driver updates from your site and my manufacturers.)
Here is my system specs:
Product ID: HP15r110dx
OS: Windows 8.1 64-bit
GPU: Intel HD 4400
CPU: Intel Core i5-4210U
RAM: 6 GB
I'm really happy for fixing the flickering display issue, but another issue came along
EDIT: Looks like a driver issue, reverted back to my last graphics driver version Intel HD 4400 10.18.10.3621 and the black screen did not show up when unplugging or plugging the AC adapter on the laptop.
My problems still exists after updating to 188.8.131.52.4206; flickering after exit game. And the game is still unplayable (see below). I have tried the driver on 2 same NUCs and the problem persists, I guess it's the driver's issue.
OS: Win 8.1 64-bit
GPU: HD 6000
HDD: Samsung xp941 SSD and Samsung 2tb HDD
Although I can't be sure (since flickering problem was intermittent), the Beta driver has seemed to reduce my flickering issue on 64-bit Windows 8.1 NUC5i5 after resume from sleep (where intermittently the whole screen would flicker as I moved the mouse, only usable again by power-cycle). However, on one occasion I saw brief temporary flicker on portion of screen (near bottom) within seconds of resume, and on one other occasion (right now) the bottom inch of so of display keeps flickering especially when I move mouse in certain places such as around task bar and/or when I switch to the default PDF viewer in Windows 8.1.
So to recap, flicking problem (after resume from sleep) seems better but not completely solved.
Trying to play youtube videos causes chrome to crash or freeze with these drivers on my i7 NUC. They started working again after going back to the stable drivers.
I think mine suffers the same problem and I thought it was because of the Chrome update.
I wrote already a bug-report in this thread, but I should report it here also.
It it not possible (or only with a manual override in the driver) to set a resolution smaller then 4k on a 4kTV.
It will output 4k with a stretched 2k resolution.
Using "show all modi" and selecting 1920*1080*32 60Hz show a real 1920*1080 resolution with 60Hz.
Just a small false rendering with MadShaders.
It was there from the beginning since version 0.3.0 and all Intel OpenGL drivers, but it was difficult to notice because the driver renders something, but not the right output.
The demo is called "flaring" -> flaring_gl2.xml
Also seeing a bit of flickering after returning from "sleep" mode on Windows 8.1 after downloading above drivers. Made a system restore point so going back to original 4156 drivers where problem still occurs in a much larger scale.
Update: After downloading/installing old 4080 Jan 15 driver, marked improvement at not experiencing flickering or artifacts on Sign-in screen, desktop screen, or Metro screen coming out of sleep. No games, Windows 8.1 on a DP connected Dell U2414h. Will continue testing for a couple more days.
This driver causes the Google Chrome GPU process to use all the CPU and locks up Chrome until that process is killed.
This driver fixes an issue ( the issue is in the current "stable" driver) where playing videos full screen in mpv using hardware acceleration causes all kinds of graphical glitches.
