    In the past when I select the Studio version it ALWAYS downloads the DCH one instead,,,,both from
    MSI and Nvidea sites…..I do video processing, not games and am told my GPU (MSI RTX2080Ti 11GB Trio) is optimised for the Studio version.
    Am running 452.06 DCH now….can I be assured that I can download latest 456 for Studio only?
    Or is there no advantage as I don’t run games
