Nvidia driver Debloat tool.

As the title suggests there is a debloat tool for Nvidia drivers called NVCleanInstall.

In all honesty it is very simple to use, I would link a video to a use and claims thing but there are many from different people claiming different things, but mainly a small increase in FPS and much better 1% lows and such. I mean who doesn't want less stutters? I'm not going to link a vid because there are plenty and well... I don't want to spend an hour watching vids to find one to post. Excuse the laziness here.

Thing is, I'm trying this on the 15ACH6H project and every time I use it, either the Lenovo software or something Nvidia does has stopped the laptop going over 80w despite control panel still saying its a 130w card. I may take to discord to see if any of the pros have any incite but I thought I would throw this out there as you can use it on desktop cards as well as laptops. The use of DDU is recommended for a nice clean install though.

If anyone tries this on their machine and has success I would love to see before and after numbers! 

  • I won't use Nvidia any longer if I can avoid it (easy if I have to pay the price of PC components by myself :D ) but jsut wanted to mention that  I really dislike how they store the executable of every single driverupdate somewhere hidden on the hdd and keep it foever. Some people might waste 20+ GB to that beavior.

  •   Doesnt DDU get rid of all that crap?

  • I never use or advocate using DDU for laptops with switchable graphics as it is known to cause problems with mux and power control (possibly what caused your new power limit)

    It's easy enough to clear that directory out anyway but both AMD and NVIDIA have their own cleanup tools bundled with their latest drivers that work perfectly well. I actually like keeping 3 versions of the driver just in case I have to roll back on the odd occasion there's a problem with the latest. I know that's getting on for 2.5GB but I'm not short of storage space.
