NVIDIA Releases GeForce 418.81 WHQL Software

NVIDIA today released GeForce 418.81 WHQL software. The drivers add support for mobile versions of GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs. The desktop version adds optimization for 3DMark Port Royal benchmark, in addition to its DLSS (deep learning supersampling) AA setting. The drivers add or improve NVIDIA SLI support for "Anthem," "Assetto Corsa Competizione," "Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2," "Life is strange Season 2," "NBA 2K19," and "Space Hulk Tactics." CUDA version 10 is included with these drivers.

Among the issues fixed are HDR not being enabled by default in Gamestream when an HDR display is connected to the client and PC. 3D performance and frame-rate overlays accidentally appearing on Twitter UWP app is fixed. Random flickering in games with G-Sync enabled is fixed. Also fixed is a strange issue in which when a G-Sync display (one with NVIDIA G-Sync hardware) is hotplugged, and a G-Sync Compatible (read: VESA Adaptive Sync) display is connected, the right half of the G-Sync display goes blank. Grab the drivers from the link below.

chews up to 30% of your GPU power to achieve it... even my 1080 doesnt have that much spare goodness

My freesync monitor stopped working with this driver. When activating G-sync my screen just goes black.

Not that much. Raster method does have overhead, but it delivers it for anyone. Low latency and minimum tearing.

I installed these last night and now none of my monitors goes into sleep mode. Double checked all the settings, I hadn't changed anything but the drivers.

Well this is weird. If I set a screensaver my monitors will then go into sleep mode at the specified time. Disabling the screensaver puts the monitors back into wide awake mode never powering down.
