Nvidia released the GeForce 265.10 WHQL game-ready drivers for upcoming titles Forza Motorsport 6, Overwatch: Open Beta, Paragon beta and Battleborn. This driver came right on time seeing that Forza Apex’s open BETA will be open this Thursday.
The driver supports graphic cards as old as the GeForce 400 series all the way to the currently available GeForce 900 series. What’s interesting is that Nvidia pointed out Quantum Breaks’ issue on Windows 10 that was later identified as its memory management issue once the higher in-game settings are used.
This driver also brings full Oculus Rift VR headset support (including optimizations and enhancements) for EVE: Valkyrie, Chronos, Elite Dangerous and latest support for Nvidia VRWorks. Other features are the support for Vulkan 3D API, added Dynamic Super Resolution for SLI setups with G-Sync monitors, power-saving options where the driver puts the graphic card in OFF state with VRAM in a self-refresh mode when the monitor is blank or inactive, but only for Windows 10.
Those who use Nvidia ShadowPlay should note that the green team assured improve fluidity for DX 12 and under SLI.
Nvidia also pointed out a set of issues these drivers with certain games, a benchmark and certain setups. The issues associated with Windows 10 are as follows:
- [SLI, Street Fighter V] Performance drop (pause and play) observed when the game is played at 4K resolution with SLI enabled.
- StarWars TOR- Knights of the Fallen Empire hangs when in-game graphics settings changed in full-screen mode.
- [SLI] Blank display is observed on disabling SLI with two displays connected.
- [SLI] Unable to select the check box of an HDMI display to extend it via the NVIDIA Control Panel.
- [Luxmark 3.0, Windows 10 TH2] Display driver stopped responding while running benchmark LuxBall HDR (Simple Benchmark:217K triangles).
- Driver installation will fail if GeForce Experience is a selected component and the system is either in safe mode or without a network connection.
- [347.09, GM204] Blank screen observed on an ASUS Tiled display when system resumes from shutdown or hibernation with Fast boot option enabled from BIOS.
- [SLI, UEFI] Event Viewer error 14 points to nvlddmkm when the system is rebooted.
Rest of the open issue list can be accessed from the driver’s release notes.
