NVIDIA GeForce 418.91 WHQL Optimizes Battlefield V and Metro Exodus for DLSS

NVIDIA today released the latest version of GeForce desktop software. Version 418.91 WHQL adds day-one optimization for "Metro Exodus," including the game's RTX support. It also adds support for DLSS in both "Battlefield V" and "Metro Exodus." This last part is crucial because DLSS requires a lot of pre-processed "ground truth" data from NVIDIA to work, which are shipped in driver updates like these. The drivers also fix a wide range of issues related to G-SYNC, "Apex Legends," display corruption on "Hitman 2," and "ARK Survival." Grab them from the link below.

Is it in the latest driver? Can’t look at the notes right now.

does anyone know if the freesync range of a monitor applies to the new gsync? or does gsync make up its own numbers with the new drivers when enabling gsync on a freesync monitor?

I uninstall this driver 418.91 from 5 PCs. It produces frequently crashes in different video cards, windows 7 and 10. Re install driver versión 417.71, problem solved. (RTX2080, GTX1080, GTX 1060 different brands)
