Nvidia 419.35 WHQL driver optimizes Apex Legends, Devil May Cry 5, and The Division 2

Nvidia today released the GeForce Game Ready WHQL-certified 419.35 drivers, bringing optimizations for the 50-million-strong Apex Legends, Devil May Cry 5, which is releasing in three days, and Tom Clancy's The Division 2, which is due for a release on March 15. This driver also brings three more monitors under the G-Sync Compatible umbrella.

There's also added support for CUDA 10.1 and an update to version 8.1.951.0 of the NVIDIA Control Panel bundled with this update.

A few major issues have been fixed with this update, some of which have been around for a while, including one that caused the 'NvDisplay.Container.exe' process to have a consistently high CPU usage. Here's everything that's fixed:

  • [G-SYNC]: With a G-SYNC and G-SYNC Compatible display connected in clone mode, flashing occurs on games played on the G-SYNC display with G-SYNC enabled. [200482157]
  • [Apex Legends]: DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error message may appear and then the game crashes.[2503360]
  • [Hitman 2]: Pixelated corruption appears in the game. [2504274]
  • [Batman: Arkham Origins]: PhysX fog renders incorrectly [2451459]
  • [GeForce RTX 2080][PhysX][Assassin’s Creed 4 - Black Flag]: Smoke dispersal appears accelerated. [2498928]
  • Microsoft.Photos.exe randomly crashes. [200496899]
  • NVDisplay.Container.exe causes high CPU usage. [200496099]

There are, as always, a bunch of known issues as well, some of which come with notes and workarounds that we have highlighted:

  • [SLI][HDR][Tom Clancy's The division II]: The game screen becomes unresponsive or goes blank when in-game HDR options are toggled. [200496967]

    • Workaround: Enable both the Windows HDR and the in-game HDR.
  • [ARK Survival]: Multiple errors and then blue-screen crash may occur when playing the game. [2453173]
  • [Shadow of the Tomb Raider][Ansel]: Invoking Ansel in the game causes the game to slow down or crash. [2507125]
  • [Turing][Star Citizen]: The game flickers and then crashes to the desktop. [2518104]
