    Got to love how NVIDIA keep creating their own competition in the Professional market. The gap between high-end GTX cards and Quadro cards just keeps getting smaller and the benefits of choosing professional over consumer keep getting less.

    Re: Nvidia releases its first Creator Ready Drivers

    So why do we need specific drivers for 'creative' programs.... couldn't they have just made drivers that automatically adjust the settings to suit the program that's running?

    We can already manually set custom graphic settings for individual programs so why can't they have a default 'package' we can use if we want....

    Mind you if the RTX2080 can only see an uptick of up to 8-12% (so best case scenarios then) with these custom drivers (you could likely get that from optimising the code for the new architecture) I'd hate to see what the lesser models are doing. Having said that I've not exactly seen any issues with the non creator drivers...

    Gotta agree with LSG501. All manufacturers' graphics drivers already do app detection for video games, so why can't they do app detection for non-game apps as well, enabling the various enhancements for productivity apps? Having two sets of drivers seems utterly ridiculous.

    I can see a case for "pro" drivers that come exclusively with "pro" graphics cards - it's a bit sickening, but makes business sense. Introducing a second free driver set for consumer cards just serves to muddy the waters for users. You have to think there must be quite a few users who both work *and* play on their computers - are they supposed to install one drivers set during the day, and the other at night?

    That does not bother NVIDIA as long as the price gap between the two markes also closing, meaning are getting more expensive every new generation.
