nVidia drivers causing DPC latency spikes - what can I do about it?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
nvlddmkm.sys makes my DPC latency spike up to 350us... What can I do about it besides using different drivers? I disabled nVidia services and that actually reduced my spikes from up to 650us to 350us. I also tried disabling devices that are on the same exact IRQ (16) as my ASUS GTX 680 (flashed to 770). I also read about DPC Latency Enhancer, but all links to it are broken. Set Timer Resolution program sucks because it creates a 500us ceiling, but also makes the average the same 500us! Without it, my DPC Latency hovers around 15-30us, except for nVidia driver of course. I use the latest 337.50 beta drivers and Windows 8.1. HPET is turned off in BIOS and Windows.

Beta? I would use the latest WHQL driver. That's probably the problem.

Almost all nVidia drivers have this issue. nVidia used to care about latency, but then stopped focusing on it. I also tried enabling HPET in BIOS and in Windows, which did reduce the nVidia driver latency, but raised others and the average even higher!
