NVIDIA Releases GeForce 419.67 WHQL Game Ready Drivers

After the oddity that was its GeForce 419.67 WHQL Creator Ready drivers, NVIDIA launched new GeForce drivers with the same 419.67 version number, but with "Game Ready" branding. It's now clear that Creator Ready is a fork of the GeForce software, released at a slightly lesser frequency, targeting creativity and productivity software that don't quite need Quadro feature-set or certifications. GeForce 419.67 WHQL Game Ready, on the other hand, add day-one optimization for "Battlefield V: Firestorm," a new update that brings the highly addictive Battle Royale gameplay mode to the Battlefield franchise. Optimization is also added or refined for "Anthem," "Shadow of the Tomb Raider," and "Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice." NVIDIA expanded the list of Adaptive Sync monitors that are now capable of G-Sync.

Among the bugs fixed are a performance drop noticed in DaVinci Resolve, overexposed brightness and color seen in "Far Cry: New Dawn" with HDR turned on; performance issues with "Total War: Warhammer 2" with AA turned on; artifacts seen in certain Adobe applications; screen corruption when switching display modes with HDR turned on in "Apex Legends," FOV reduction when recording with GeForce Experience; flickering noticed in "Star Citizen" followed by a CTD on "Turing" GPUs, abnormal time taken on GeForce GTX 980 responding to NVAPI calls; TITAN RTX overheating when enabling TCC mode via NVLink; and second monitor flickering with two monitors connected to an RTX 2070. Grab the driver from the link below.

Perfect timing. From my back-logged library, I just installed Shadow of the Tome Raider last night.

Still "older" than 421.65 that was pushed out to Windows Insiders via Windows Update. I'm assuming all these fixes have already been included.

Oh, no more 3D vision? Anything else in place of it?

I'm at work right now, has anyone tested these drivers with anthem? It's mentioned in the notes the drivers are optimized for use in that game, but I need to know if SLI support has been finally added for it.

If anyone can confirm this, I would appreciate it.

I've got horrendous stuttering in AC Odyssey with this driver, might need to DDU and do a clean install
