NVIDIA Releases 372.90 WHQL Game Ready Driverby Daniel Williams on September 22, 2016 1:00 AM EST
Not to be outdone by AMD, NVIDIA also has their own driver release this evening, with the release of driver version 372.90.
Among the fixes in this latest drivers includes several game stability and G-Sync issues. In Mirrors Edge Catalyst NVIDIA has fixed an issue with the the Intensity slider, flickering has been fixed in Star Wars the Old Republic, and a crash with extended gameplay sessions on Rise of the Tomb Raider has been buffed out. Meanwhile G-Sync has received two fixes this time around, with with NVIDIA addressing lag in G-Sync windowed mode, and removing screen tearing in World of Warcraft that was occuring with in game V-Sync enabled.
A more impactful fix, since this issue made the news a couple of months ago, is a fix for the HTC Vive when running the video feed through DisplayPort. It turns out that the headset was not lighting up despite connecting, but those who wish to use DisplayPort instead of HDMI for their VR endeavors should now be able to do so. Lastly, NVIDIA Ansel will be enabled by default in the driver for white-listed games.
Bundled in with all of these fixes we are also given game ready support for Forza Horizon 3, the latest racing game to be published by Microsoft Studios. Forza is seeing release next week on Tuesday the 27th, though Ultimate Edition owners will get a head start this Friday.
Anyone interested can download the updated drivers through GeForce Experience or on the NVIDIA driver download page. More information on this update and further issues can be found in the 372.90 release notes.

Mr Perfect - Friday, September 23, 2016 - linkWith Skyrim you'll at least get a fixed copy on October 4th when Beth gives out the free HD remaster. It's Fallout 3 and New Vegas I'm concerned about, they're to old to get support.
eddman - Friday, September 23, 2016 - linkIMO, fallout 3 and new vegas deserve proper remasters, or should I say remakes since they use Gamebryo engine and bethesda have moved to Creation engine. Still, it might not be that difficult given that Creation is basically a heavily updated Gamebryo.
ruthan - Saturday, September 24, 2016 - linkHa, ha.. Creation engine, is just new name for old Gamebryo stuff, they just bought Gamebryo license include the source code and continue working on old code base, only changed the name to look more fancy.
eddman - Saturday, September 24, 2016 - linkWhat do you mean, exactly? That Creation is Gamebryo without any changes? As far as it's known, even though it's based on gamebryo, the code was rewritten in major ways here and there. It's not just a new name.
JKflipflop98 - Tuesday, September 27, 2016 - linkLOL wut? It's the same Gamebryo engine with the same annoying bugs that have been there since Morrowind. The only thing "rewritten in major ways" was the graphics renderer. Everything underneath is still the same ol janky bowl of brown.
Michael Bay - Saturday, September 24, 2016 - linkWhat a load of bullshit. 10 is at the very least as stable as 7 ever was.
HollyDOL - Sunday, September 25, 2016 - linkMy experience is the same. The only issue I had was with insider version almost 3/4 year before official release and it was fixed quite fast.
JeffFlanagan - Monday, September 26, 2016 - linkHe could be a zealot who just hates new things, but he may have a crappy PC, leading to a lot of problems that he mistakenly blames on Win 10, in which case your noxious post would be totally out of line.
kn00tcn - Friday, September 23, 2016 - linkdidnt this driver come out before amd's?
Galvin - Saturday, September 24, 2016 - linkThese caused a black screen during load screens in world of warcraft. Rolled back to an earlier driver fixed the issue.
