NVIDIA Releases GeForce 431.36 WHQL Drivers

NVIDIA today released GeForce 431.36 WHQL software, which adds support for the new GeForce RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super graphics cards that went on sale from 9th July. The drivers also improve optimization for "Tom Clancy's The Division 2," "Strange Brigade," and "Metro Exodus." The drivers add SLI support for "F1 2019." The drivers address the issue of performance counts appearing over the Windows 10 1903 Start menu (since the Start menu is now its own 3D-accelerated process). A "Code 43" error that appears on Windows 1903 machines with Intel "Sandy Bridge" processors has also been fixed. Another critical bug where Windows 1903 doesn't write a crash-dump on BSOD has been fixed.

Among the game-specific fixes are screen flickering noticed in "Grand Theft Auto V" with MSAA enabled; a game-crash experienced in "Forza 4" when driving through tunnels; "Shadow of the Tomb Raider" may experience a TDR crash on GeForce "Pascal" GPU; and staying with this title, its internal benchmark may quit when ray-tracing is enabled. Grab the driver from the link below.

This driver release also fixed a screen tearing and stuttering issue(even with full vsync enabled) with certain games and Youtube on Windows 7.

That sounds unpleasant. Is that similar to the "falling through the ground" issue they had not too long ago?

@lexluthermiester it's very unpleasant. falling thru the ground bug is very very rare for me to get it. Lots of nasty bugs got squished & exploits are being destroyed in the Top Gear Challenge update, which is sweet. Still there are other areas where super-rare bugs are still looming around. The tunnel speed run bug that this driver update fixed it is good news for me.
@er557 somewhat skeptical in using modified drivers atm... So, pass on that.
