NVIDIA Releases GeForce 417.35 WHQL Drivers

NVIDIA today released GeForce 417.35 WHQL software. These drivers provide optimization to the latest update of Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition, which introduces DLSS (deep learning super-sampling), NVIDIA's major image-quality enhancement feature released alongside "Turing." The 417.35 WHQL update also addresses a number of issues. "Rocket League" now no longer sometimes launch with a white screen and crash-to-desktop. The "Manage GPU Utilization" tab in the Workstation settings of NVCPL on machines running TITAN V no longer appears when it shouldn't. The drivers also fix SLI disabling after driver update on TITAN Xp SLI setups. Ansel support for "Battlefield V" is improved. Texture flickering in "Hitman 2: Silent Assassin" has been fixed. The drivers also include an updated GeForce Experience (version 3.16.0.140).

So, DLSS in one discontinued game. DXR in one live game. Going well :)

@W1zzard On the driver DL page, you recommend "On drivers 381.65 and newer, after installation go to NVIDIA Control Panel -> Help -> Allow Experience Improvement Program to disable NVIDIA data collection, which is enabled automatically after installation" but that menuitem was removed in 397.93. AFAIK the only way to prevent NVIDIA telemetry collection nowadays is to stop the "nvtelemetry" service (which kills GeForce Experience if you use it) or use https://github.com/NateShoffner/Disable-Nvidia-Telemetry

I got the driver and updated the game but the DLSS option is greyed out. Is this a 4K only option?

No.

Do you have Windows 10 v1809? You need that to have dxr in windows.

Oops.. derp.. yeah.. I was thinking the wrong thing.. sorry.

Maybe it is for 4K only, but that article only mentions a performance number there. It doens't mention anything about exclusivity, right?

I didn't read any further than 4K lol. Their articles are typically horrible.
