NVIDIA Releases GeForce 388.31 WHQL Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today has released the latest version of their GeForce Game Ready Graphics Driver. The new 388.31 drivers are optimized for the latest AAA games, "Star Wars Battlefront II," and "Injustice 2". NVIDIA has also added the corresponding 3D Vision profiles for both titles. In addition, they've included SLI profiles for Star Wars: Battlefront II and EVE Valkyrie - Warzone as well. According to them, the 388.31 drivers improve Destiny 2 performance by up to a staggering 53%. However, the more notable fixes include the micro-stuttering issue when using GPU monitoring tools to monitor GPU power and the driver not picking up GeForce GTX 1080 on the Alienware Amplifier.

That should help a lot. I have sworn that I kept getting a micro-stutter with my 1080Ti in CSGO. The Fall Creators Update cleaned that up a lot, but the micro-stutter is still slightly there.

Edit: Users over on guru3d have the consensus that these drivers do in fact take care of micro-stutter. Also, they made some huge gains in Destiny 2:

Damn Destiny 2 is gonna follow Forza 7 in the don't worry ladies... they will sort it category.

FineWine is a horrible term though, I just prefer dodgy at launch.

Darn. I was hoping they'd fix SLI support in Destiny 2... 2x 1080's but only one card is working for me right now on 388.13. Oh wait, maybe they did! Downloading now...

wow I thought D2 ran great on my 1080 already... That #%^$ lowly 60hz monitor is holding me down.

All I wanted for Christmas was for that new Asus 200Hz ultrawide to release.... :(
