NVIDIA Releases Studio Driver 431.70 WHQL

NVIDIA today updated its GeForce Studio Driver to version 431.70 WHQL. NVIDIA had in March 2019 forked its client-segment GPU drivers to two, the regular GeForce "Game Ready" drivers targeting gamers and regular desktop users; and the special Studio Drivers targeting content creators who don't necessarily own expensive Quadro hardware but could do with certain professional features and application support. These drivers still won't turn your GeForce to Quadro, and won't give GeForce "certifications" for major 3D and content-creation applications, but will ensure compatibility by making the most of existing hardware features of GeForce or TITAN GPUs.

Version 431.70 adds support for GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and RTX 2060 SUPER GPUs; expands the list of G-SYNC compatible monitors; and adds support for new content creation applications, namely Magix VEGAS Pro v17, Autodesk Arnold, Allegorithmic Substance Painter 2019.2, Blender 2.80, Cinema 4D R21, and Otoy Octane Render 2019.2. The drivers also enable 30-bit color (not to be confused with 10-bit color) on GeForce and TITAN GPUs. This needed Quadro GPUs until now. Grab the driver from the link below.

Thanks for reporting these releases. Any way we can carry this along side the Geforce Drivers on TPU? @W1zzard

dont think there's enough interest to make up for the confusion added: "which driver should i download?"

this means regular geforce cards will have 10 bit color support in proffesional applications that until now only quadro had.

I can confirm new nvidia drivers enable gsync for many monitors more, mine for example Samsung ue590 can have freesync without any issues, it took them a lot of time for that though, 7 months or so but the funny thing is that 10 bit color cant be enabled with freesync on earlier drivers, maybe this driver can do. I will try this week and post here any update.

I prefer to have 10 bit color enabled than have freesync.

Here my RX 5700 enabled 10Bits without me even having to search to configure, it was automatic.

Your monitor must be much much better than mine, I mean to even show 12bit.
