Nvidia 441.66 WHQL driver delivers MechWarrior 5 and Detroit: Become Human optimizations

Nvidia's driver team has pushed out a new version of the suite, GeForce Game Ready 441.66 WHQL driver, that carries optimizations for two newly arriving PC games plus G-Sync Compatible support for a couple of more monitors.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries and Detroit: Become Human are the optimizations-receiving games in this release, and those who are picking either of the games are recommended to install this driver before playing. The MechWarrior title is releasing today while Detroit: Become Human lands on December 12, both exclusively on the Epic Games Store.

Meanwhile, the MSI MAG251RX and ViewSonic XG270 displays are now in the G-Sync Compatible Monitors list of Nvidia, bumping up the total number to over 60.

Here are the bug fixes Nvidia has included in this Game Ready driver.

  • [Resolve]: The application may crash during timeline playback when using Blackmagic RAW CODEC media. [2753421]
  • [Forza Motorsport 7]: Game starts to stutter after racing a few laps [2750611]
  • [Fallout 76][G-SYNC]: The game frame rate drops with G-SYNC enabled. [200466962]
  • [GeForce GTX 1080 Ti]: There is no 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound option in the Windows Sound Properties.[2752540]
  • [GeForce GTX 1060 6GB][NVIDIA Control Panel]:The NVIDIA Control Panel reports an incorrect GPU framebuffer size.

Known issues to keep an eye out for are there as well:

Windows 10 Issues

  • [Sniper Elite 4][Shadow of the Tomb Raider]: Frame rate is not capped at the display refresh rate with V-Sync enabled in DirectX 12 mode. [2719115]
  • [Grand Theft Auto V]: The game frequently crashes.
    • NVIDIA is working with the application developer to resolve the issue.

Windows 7 Issues

  • [World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth][DirectX 12]: The game crashes when switched from DirectX 11 to DirectX 12 mode. [200574934]

Additional Issues

  • Devil May Cry V/RESIDENT EVIL 2 / BIOHAZARD RE:2 may appear darker during gameplay[2739410][2739471]
  • No Low Latency Mode setting on MSHybrid notebooks/PCs with SLI configuration:
    • In the R440 branch, we fixed a bug that was incorrectly allowing NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency mode to be enabled for MSHybrid and SLI configurations. Even though the mode appeared to be enabled on these configurations, Ultra Low Latency mode was not actually engaged. R435 was considered a Beta and we apologize for any confusion this may have caused
