Just about two weeks ago Nvidia released its 416.34 WHQL drivers, and while that release introduced optimizations for several highly-anticipated AAA titles, it was also accompanied by a long list of known issues.
Nvidia today released its GeForce 416.64 beta drivers, fixing at least a few of the issues that its previous driver releases have been carrying along for a while. It’s to be noted, however, that this isn’t a WHQL-certified release – it’s a beta release of an optional update; as put by Nvidia:
They are run through a much abbreviated QA process. The sole reason they exist is to get fixes out to you more quickly. The safest option is to wait for the next WHQL certified driver. But we know that many of you are willing to try these out.
The list of issues this hotfix addresses is provided via a post on the GeForce forums rather than the usual release notes, and they are as such:
- Far Cry 5: Flicker during gameplay
- Monster Hunter World: Corruption is seen when Volume Rendering Quality is set to highest
- The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Flicker during gameplay
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Improves game stability
- When audio playback is paused, audio receiver switches from multi-channel to stereo. Increased period from 5 seconds to 10 seconds.
There are no traditional release notes available with this hotfix update, therefore, that's all the information that is available at the moment.
The 416.64 hotfix drivers can be downloaded via the links down below. it must be noted, however, that while this release will work on Windows 8.1, Turing-based graphics card - including the RTX 2070, 2080, and 2080Ti - are not supported on that platform. Also, this release comes with a separate DCH version aimed at those using Windows 10 in S Mode.
