NVIDIA Releases GeForce 497.29 WHQL Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today released the latest version of GeForce Game Ready drivers. Version 497.29 WHQL comes game-ready for "GTFO," and optimization for "Horizon Zero Dawn" with the added DLSS feature. Among the bugs fixed include a crash-to-desktop and visual artifacts with Microsoft Flight Simulator; a performance drop noticed with "Supreme Command:Forged Alliance/Supreme Commander 2," a stutter noticed with Windows Desktop when the mouse is moved after an extended period of time; and some localization issues in NVIDIA Control Panel.

The multi-monitor bug is still in these drivers and NVIDIA states this should be solved in a January driver fix.
