Nvidia has prepared a new version of the driver package of GeForce Game Ready 387.92 WHQL which is available for download now.
The new release is Game Ready and aims to provide the best performance in games like Middle-earth: Shadow of War, The Evil Within 2, Forza Motorsport 7, and the VR project of Arktika.1.
Among other innovations of the GeForce 387.92 WHQL release, there is support for Fast Sync technology on SLI links from Maxwell and Pascal generation graphics cards, OpenGL graphics 4.6 version, and HDR support for Nvidia GameStream on a PC running Windows 10.
In addition, SLI profiles have been added/updated for the following games: Earthfall, Lawbreakers, Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Nex Machina, ReCore, RiME, Snake Pass, Tekken 7, The Evil Within 2 and We Happy Few.
You can download the new version of the driver package from the GeForce.com website or through the GeForce Experience application. The accompanying documentation for the release of GeForce 387.92 WHQL can be found at this link.
Check out the changelogs of this new driver below:
1. Added support for OpenGL 4.61
2. Added NVIDIA GameStream support for HDR under Windows 10
3. Added Fast Sync support for SLI:
Fast Sync under SLI is available only on the following ‘bridged’ SLI configurations:
•NVIDIA Maxwell GPUs: Any resolution less than 4k
•NVIDIA Pascal & later GPUs: Any resolution
4. Implemented improvement in full-screen Vulkan applications for 32-bit Windows swapchains.
This optimization will cause more events that trigger an out-of-date swapchain, such as when entering or leaving full-screen mode (typically by pressing Alt+tab). Applications that do not properly respond to the VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DATE_KHR return code may not function properly when these events occur. See the WSI Swapchain section of the Vulkan specification.
5. Added support for the DirectX Intermediate Language (DXIL)
•Includes full support for DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.0, features such as Wavemath, and the DirectX Shader Compiler.
•Supported only on NVIDIA Kepler and later GPUs.
