Nvidia asks Raptor Lake CPU users to consult Intel over stability issues

Nvidia points the finger at Intel over game stability issues in GeForce Driver release notes

In their latest set of driver release notes, as spotted by @harukaze5719 on Twitter/X, Nvidia has told Intel Raptor Lake CPU users to consult Intel for troubleshooting assistance. Some users of Intel 13th/14th generation Raptor Lake CPUs are experiencing game stability issues in specific titles. This can result in “out of memory” issues, crashes, and other problems.

Intel has confirmed that they are currently investigating this issue. At this time, it is unknown what is causing these stability issues, or how Intel will eventually address it. Some game developers have recommended CPU downclocking to address these stability issues. This has led many gamers with concerns that Intel pushed the clock speeds of their latest CPUs too far. Hopefully, Intel will be able to uncover the cause of these issues soon and introduce a fix soon.

With their driver release notes, Nvidia are distancing themselves from these CPU stability issues. Game-related stability issues can be the result of GPU driver bugs. It’s probable that many Intel users have reported these game stability issues to Nvidia. Nvidia appears to be convinced that their hardware and software is nothing to do with these stability issues. As such, they are pointing their users to Intel.
