Following instructions successfully tested with [Geforce RTX 3090Ti] on recent [474.66 driver] [October 2023]. In newer operating systems things could be entirely different. It’s been a fair amount of time since I’ve written about privacy related stuff. In early days ~2017 nvidia was not so obsessed with telemetry. Everything you should do to block their efforts is to run [Disable Nvidia Telemetry] . As time goes on things changed dramatically.
In my newly purchased [Lenovo X1 Carbon] i run into screen tearing issues during web or local video playback with classic windows theme turned on. GOOD EXAMPLE OF SCREEN TEARING PHENOMENON I messed around with different video driver settings, under the hood browser parameters, fine-tuning other various tweaks without any changes for good. To my surprise solution was pretty straightforward. JUST TURN ON AERO THEME TO SAVE YOUR EV▓NING! Aero interface is rendered by Desktop Windows Manager [DWM].

¶ PREFACE NOTE You obviously thinking something like: Man, this is universally stupid, because Xeon E5 platform is based around PCIe 3.0 [15.75Gb/s] and 3090Ti is PCIe 4.0 [31.5 Gb/s] card But i need to check this out no matter the cost. Why? Coz i’m a weirdo, remember? █ COMPUTER CONFIGURATIONS  ► Intel Xeon E5-2696v4 / Asrock X99 Extreme 4 / 64Gb DDR4 2400Mhz / Geforce 3090Ti 24Gb Stock  ► Ryzen 9 5950X PBO OC / Gigabyte Aorus Ultra X570 / 64Gb DDR4 3600@3800Mhz / Radeon 6900XT 16Gb OC
Since i’ve switched to [fanless GPU] from Nvidia and began to monitor Windows 7 driver related news. So, here is a [link to the latest] to date Windows 7 driver . It’s really neat to hear that Nvidia is not dropping driver support for Windows Classics . Red team from AMD can’t demonstrate such coolness in this category. Lastest GPU drivers for Windows 7 will be available [here] .

[GeForce 1650Ti] is the fastest passively cooled GPU avaialable on market. It was made by Palit company and carries KalmX branding. Recently, i finished my Blender investigations and that is why i don’t need [Radeon 6900xt] power anymore. So, i decided to switch to something without fan with decent performance. KalmX design solely relies on massive radiator. Despite the fact that device doesn’t have any fans it provides pretty good performance.
Like leaksters say Radeon 6950XT refresh will bring new 18Gbbs memory sub-system and [8-10% to performance] . I’ve decided not to involve myself into GPU race and stick with plain 6900XT. It is a performance banger under Windows 7 environment. Imagery by spacedrone808

Described issue related to Windows 7 and modern AMD-based GPU’s. Some users on Reddit [have reported] ,that there is a problem with modern Radeon cards. Core of the problem: sometimes monitor can’t wake up from sleep state and shows up no signal message, despite the fact that computer continues to operate. Keyboard input, sound output are working normally though. Of course you can set Windows power management not to turn off monitor completely, but this will be quite a waste of energy.
