NVIDIA Releases GeForce 416.16 WHQL Drivers

NVIDIA released its first GeForce software suite since Windows 10 October 2018 went official. The new GeForce 416.16 WHQL drivers add full support for the new operating system, including WDDM 2.5, and DirectX Ray-Tracing (DXR), which are essential for NVIDIA RTX to work. The drivers also add SLI profiles for a large number of games, including "Battlefield V," "Basingstroke," "Divinity: Original Sin II," "Immortal: Unchained," "Jurassic World Evolution," "Phoenix Point," and "Seven: The Days Long Gone." 3DVision profiles are added for "The Elder Scrolls: Online."

A small number of bugs are also fixed with this release. "Pascal" GPUs running "Quake HD remix" no longer experience black square glitches. Temporal AA sharp drops in performance with GeForce GTX 1060 running "Rainbow 6: Siege" has been fixed. Driver errors on TITAN Xp when waking up from S4 sleep have been fixed. Lastly, an issue found with "Turing" GPUs not exposing Netflix 4K mode to displays connected over USB-C, has been fixed. Grab the driver from the link below.

These drivers are now up to 520Mb!

If it carries on like this, with future DLSS profiles being added, they're going to hit the 1GB mark within a couple of years.

Is that an issue in era of 100\1000mb internet and Tb SSD\HDDs?

Did they fix windowed g-sync this time or is it still broken?

I have massive lag with previous 411 drivers after exiting some games on GTX 1080. Display driver restart sort of helps (via devcon on commandline) but only restart really fixes it.

Given the rate at which they publish SLI profiles, enjoy the wait!

Divinity OS2 just got its SLI profile. Released a year ago...

Honestly, this built-in dependancy on software to use your hardware is utterly ridiculous. Nvidia axes SLI by cutting it out of the midrange and they created a new monstrosity called DLSS. And both of them share the characteristic that without them, you suffer an utterly massive performance hit. Oh yeah, and if you're one of those sad cases still using SLI, don't forget to buy that 80 dollar bridge :D

Its really quite amazing if you make up the balance of GPU @ 2018.
