Nvidia has just released the latest version of its GeForce graphics card driver, bringing it up to version 378.92. It includes day one Game Ready performance optimisations for Mass Effect Andromeda and Rock Band VR. However if you’re rocking Nvidia’s brand new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card you may want to hold fire before you download these drivers.
Despite Nvidia partnering up with BioWare and EA for exclusive GameWorks features in Mass Effect 4, tucked away in the known issues section is a little snippet that reads "GeForce GTX 1080 Ti][Mass Effect: Andromeda]: Random memory errors occur when playing the game” while running Windows 10. Not the sort of thing those who’ve just forked out for $700 graphics cards are going to pleased about.
Anyway, other things included in this driver release are SLI application profiles for Dead Rising 4, Deus Ex: Breach and Mass Effect Andromeda. This should (hopefully) guarantee tip top multi-GPU performance with GeForce graphics cards.
The list of issues with the GeForce 378.92 driver is hefty however, which may be a symptom of it arriving just a week after the previous driver. Aside from the Mass Effect Andromeda issue, SLI 1080 Ti’s may run into problems with corruption in both Battlefield 1 and Civilization VI. Likewise, Ghost Recon Wildlands will crash for GTX Titan X users who enable Ansel in-game.
For the full list of open issues just head to page 15 of the driver release notes.
As per usual you can auto-update through GeForce Experience or grab the download yourself from Nvidia’s official driver download page.
