Nvidia releases 390.77 WHQL drivers with optimizations for Metal Gear Survive and more

Nvidia has released its latest GeForce Game Ready 390.77 WHQL-certified drivers, bringing optimizations for the upcoming CryEngine-powered Kingdom Come: Deliverance, as well as Metal Gear Survive, which uses Konami’s own Fox Engine; the former is set to release on February 13, while the latter is due for February 22.

This is the first update since Nvidia released its mitigation update for Spectre earlier this month.

Additionally, the update also brings along a number of bug fixes:

  • [SLI][Dirt 4]: There is corruption and flickering in the game with SLI enabled. [200376552]
  • [Neverwinter Nights]: Some graphics are missing. [2024453]
  • [Optimus Notebook]: GeForce Experience may launch with a black screen. [2009290]
  • [3DMark]: There is a drop in the benchmark performance. [2042217]
  • [GeForce GTX 1080][G-SYNC]: Performance issues occurred with G-SYNC windowed mode enabled. [2032623]
  • [GeForce GTX 1070 Ti][NVIDIA Control Panel]: The NVIDIA Control Panel->Output Dynamic Range setting does not persist but switches from Full to Limited after rebooting the system. [200378878]

Known Issues

Windows 10 Issues

  • [NVIDIA TITAN V][G-Sync]: G-Sync displays may go blank when switching between different overclocked memory clocks multiple times. [200361272]
  • [SLI][GeForce GTX 780 Ti]: There is no display output when connecting the DisplayPort and two DVI monitors. [1835763]
  • [GeForce TITAN (Kepler-based)]: The OS fails after installing the graphics card on a Threadripper-enabled motherboard. [1973303]
  • [Pascal GPUs][Gears of War 4]: Blue-screen crash may occur while playing the game. [2008731]
  • [GeForce GTX 1080 Ti][Doom]: The game crashes due to the driver reverting to OpenGL 1.1 when HDR is enabled. [2049623]

Along with the optimizations, the update also adds Nvidia Ansel support for Black Desert Online and ShadowPlay Highlights support for War Thunder. However, these features will not be enabled until a client update is released by the developers for the individual games, so perhaps keep an eye out for those.

It must also be noted that, as pointed out within the known issues, Windows 10 may fail to boot on systems with a Threadripper-enabled motherboard and a GeForce Titan graphics card.
