Nvidia has just released its latest GeForce 382.33 graphics card driver, which includes day one Game Ready optimisations for the upcoming Tekken 7 and the VR exclusive Star Trek Bridge Crew. This should ensure the best possible gaming experience in these titles if you’re using GeForces graphics hardware.
Tekken 7 is out on June 2nd, bringing Bandai Namco’s beloved fighting series to PC for the first time, aside from the Street Fighter X Tekken spin-off. It’s kangaroo-less, much to the chagrin of some, but aside from this, it looks to be a gorgeous fighter built in Unreal Engine 4. We brought you the official Tekken 7 PC system requirements back in January, and GeForce owners will need a GeForce GTX 660 to hit the minimum specs and a GeForce GTX 1060 for recommended.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew meanwhile is a co-op virtual reality adventure game in which four players each take a role in piloting the Starfleet ship USS Aegis. It’s coming to Oculus Rift, Steam VR and PlayStation VR.
Other changes include fixes for the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti stuttering while playing Prey, the GeForce GTX 1060 causing blue screen crashes when systems reboot from sleep mode, and GeForce GTX 970 SLI not working when Norton AntiVirus is enabled.
Finally the list of issues, which apart from relating to GTX 1080’s causing Battlefield 1 to hand when Fast Sync is enabled on Windows 7, are all related to Windows 10 usage.
GeForce Driver 382.33 Windows 10 Issues
- [DirectX 11 games]: On some titles, in-game V-Sync does not work if Fast Sync is selected from the NVIDIA Control Panel. Consequently, the game frame rate is not locked to the maximum refresh rate, resulting in possible tearing.
- [SteamVR titles]: SteamVR may crash when launched. To workaround, uninstall GeForce Experience or reinstall the NVIDIA driver.
- [Power DVD 17]: The display may go blank while playing HDR video in exclusive full-screen mode.
- [GeForce GTX 1070]: Games (Witcher 3, For Honor) do not recognize the custom refresh rates set using the NVIDIA Control Panel.
- [SLI][GeForce GTX 1080][Battlefield 1 XP1]: With SLI enabled, corruption appears in the game when switching between full-screen and windowed mode.
- [GeForce GTX 1080 Ti][Mass Effect: Andromeda]: Random memory errors may occur when playing the game.
- [GeForce GTX 1080 Ti][Sid Meier's Civilization VI][G-Sync/SLI/DirectX 12]: Black corruption appears while entering the in-game menu after skipping the cutscene.
- [Notebook][GeForce GTX 970M][Tom Clancy's The Division Survival DLC]: Game crashes, pointing to ntdll.dll when changed to full-screen and to windowed fullscreen.
- [Notebook][GeForce GTX 970M][ShadowPlay][For Honor]: The game silently may crash if the intro video is skipped while instant replay is on.
- [SLI][Notebook][GeForce GTX 970M][Gears of War 4]: Level loading may hang.
- NVIDIA Control Panel custom color settings are reset to the default after switching a game between windowed and full-screen mode.
- NVIDIA Control Panel custom color profiles and ICC profiles are lost when using the Microsoft Game Bar.
- [GeForce Experience]: Driver installation may fail when attempting to perform a driver overinstall. To workaround, perform a clean installation.
- [Notebook][Pascal GPU]: The display remains blank while over installing the driver, requiring a reboot.
- Error code 43 appears in the Device Manager after installing the driver with HDMI display connected.
- Driver install/overinstall requires a reboot.
As per usual you can down the light driver for yourself manually direct from Nvidia, or you can just use the GeForce Experience apps one-click installation process.
