NVIDIA Posts GeForce 419.17 WHQL Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today released GeForce 419.17 WHQL Game Ready drivers. These drivers introduce support for the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card launched moments earlier. These are also the first "Game Ready" drivers that come with optimization for "Anthem" and DiRT Rally 2.0. The drivers also add NVIDIA SLI support for "Far Cry: New Dawn" and "Apex Legends." NVIDIA also fixed a short list of bugs. Improper decal rendering in "Doom" (2016) and "Doom Eternal" are fixed. "Battlefield V" artifacting when texture filtering is set to "high" in NVIDIA Control Panel. Dynamic Super Resolution not being available for monitors with 4K2K timings has been fixed. NVIDIA also fixed a critical security vulnerability affecting access to GPU performance counters. Find the drivers from the link below.

Not sure havent done much digging. Maybe they are inside the non-public disclosure period while they make sure the fix works.

Sounds like a Timing Attack. Spectre was in a similar vein.

This driver has started to cause occasional freezing in Rainbow Six Siege for me. Havent checked to see if the Apex Legends crashes have stopped though.

Guess that explains the past few weeks of unusual random display driver crashes on my main rig.
