And now, NVIDIA also has followed up with their own Game Ready Driver release. The company has released GeForce 372.90 WHQL Driver for Windows.
NVIDIA Release Highlights:
Game Ready Drivers provide the best possible gaming experience for all major new releases, including Virtual Reality games. Prior to a new title launching, our driver team is working up until the last minute to ensure every performance tweak and bug fix is included for the best gameplay on day-1.
Provides the optimal experience for Forza Horizon 3
The 372.90 driver brings several fixes including multiple game stability and G-Sync issues. NVIDIA has fixed an issue with the Intensity slider in Mirrors Edge Catalyst, flickering in Star Wars the Old Republic, and a crash with extended game-play sessions in Rise of the Tomb Raider. NVIDIA has also addressed lag in G-Sync window mode. It has also removed screen tearing in World of Warcraft in game V-Sync enabled.
Additionally, the new version brings the fix for the HTC Vive issue. Users will now be able to use DisplayPort instead of HDMI for their VR functions. When running the video feed through DisplayPort, the headset was not lighting up despite connecting. Also, the driver also enables NVIDIA Ansel by default for white-listed games. Along with the fixes, the NVIDIA GeForce 372.90 WHQL Driver for Windows also adds game ready support for Forza Horizon 3.
