Nvidia 416.16 WHQL drivers enables DXR for RTX Graphics Cards

Nvidia released the new 416.16 WHQL graphics drivers. Graphics driver updates aren’t new, but this is a special one as it enables the much needed DirectX Ray Tracing API for its graphics card. The driver works with the Windows 10 1809 (Redstone 5) build since it needs DXR API to enable RTX for its Turing graphics card. RTX cannot function without the DirectX RayTracing API. The release also includes SLI and 3D Vision for some titles and some fixes. The 416.16 WHQL drivers also fix a problem with Turing cards and Netflix where its playback resolution doesn’t show 4K bitrates when used via USB-C-HDMI.

With the Windows 10 October 2018 update and the GeForce 416.16 update, all you have left is for RTX-enabled titles. Earlier, we have reported the problems Nvidia RTX 2080Ti Founders Edition pre-order customers faced where they are getting the graphics cards well after the market-wide availability of the non-reference models.

The driver works only with 64-bit Windows 10 and it can be downloaded from here. All that’s left now is to wait for RTX titles, which is Battlefield V, Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Metro Exodus for now.
