I´m gonna try this version and hope it resolves the crash issues. It seems to be a bug that affects many different games.
Has this been fixed. I bought a new desktop last year with a Gen 10 i7 with integrated graphics but I am using an NVIDIA G-Force video card. Zwift installed normally. But when you click on it to run it… Nothing.
Thankfully I run Zwift very reliably on an old i5 laptop. But the frame rate is HORIBLE (15 fps)
Update from me:
5 crashes today after 0:22 (as in zero minutes twenty two seconds), 6:58, 6:50, 15:26 and 2:02. (2 other times in the hour it didn’t crash, I did really short rides in the hope it wouldn’t crash.) It worked fine for a few months with an old driver from Summer 2020, then after an update and it started crashing again. I have the most recent driver update. 5 times it crashed in an hour. I meet or exceed all the minimum requirements. I don’t need super graphics, I just want it to work. Very frustrated…
Hello. I’m also facing the problem and with each contact with support the alternatives seem to change. They even suggested that I try a solution here on the forum.
Rolling back my drivers to the previous version doesn’t seem like a solution to me, since I play other games on my laptop (like Fortnite) and none of them are having any kind of problem like the one that has been running on Zwift.
It’s unbelievable that I’ll have to go back to using my old laptop to solve this, since the new one, which is more powerful in everything, can’t handle it.
In the last few workouts of the last few weeks there was a freeze and shutdown of Zwift in practically every workout.

No need to apologise, it’s infinitely better than any attempts I could make at your language.
You shouldn’t be having any crashing or freezing with your system - if Zwift is definitely using the 2070 and not being confused by there being two GPUs available. It’s not unheard of for this to cause weird issues with Zwift, hence my suggestion to disable the iGPU completely. Unfortunately aside from reinstalling the game, you don’t have many options. I would typically advise starting over with Windows 10 to rule out software issues generally, but if you use the laptop for other games then that’s a lot of messing about and it might only be the same at the end of it all.
Coincidence or not, these freezing and auto shutdown problems started when another problem started: avatar flickering (both happening).
It’s a shame I’ll have to go back to the laptop with AMD Ryzen 5 3550h processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX-1650 graphics card. I’ve never had any of these problems here.
The upgrade didn’t work for Zwift.
Yes, that’s it. So long and there is still no official solution. Geforce Experience solved it here.
It seems that the glitches are piling up and there is no interest/ability from the Zwift team to resolve.
Interestingly, none of this seems to affect my old laptop. Sometimes less is more.
