NVIDIA today released GeForce 388.13 WHQL software. These drivers are game-ready for the week's hottest AAA game releases, "Call of Duty: WWII," "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus," and "Need for Speed: Payback." This includes performance optimization, and GeForce Experience optimal settings. The drivers also add official support for the new GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card, which makes its market debut on the 2nd of November.

The drivers also address a few bugs, including a rare issue with secondary displays blanking out on some systems, "Yellow bang appearing by the graphics entry in Device Manager," and momentary display corruption on notebooks with hybrid GPUs, in which the display is switching between the CPU-integrated and NVIDIA discrete GPUs. Grab the drivers from the link below.

The hotfix drivers were awful... tons of stuttering in games - rolled back to the 388.10 and everything was great again. Hoping that these don't have the same issues.

Something of benefit though is that this driver release fixes a few minor but annoying glitches with older card generations. This may be another solid driver release that people default back to.

Wolfenstein 2 crashes at startup now. Steam forums are full of complaints with this driver. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and game numerous times as well as rebooted the system each time. Time to roll back to 388.10 because that was the only time the game worked.
