NVIDIA Releases 376.09 WHQL Driver Updateby Daniel Williams on November 29, 2016 12:30 PM EST
Watchdogs 2 is being released this week, and with that we receiving a new NVIDIA driver update, bundled in with a few fixes. The 376.09 update continues the Release 375 branch.
In our fixes this week we first have a solution for high GPU idle clocks while two DisplayPort displays are plugged in. The NVIDIA Vulkan ICD also no longer breaks Vulkan initialization on AMD. NVIDIA Quadro cards were having trouble enabling a DisplayPort display after it’s EDID is unloaded, and that issue has now been resolved. There were crashes reported in Forza Horizon 3 (presumably no pun intended) when playing on a GeForce GTX 780 or GTX 770 with driver 372.90, which should now be fixed. Lastly, we have solutions for two Adobe related issues: Adobe Premiere Element 13 was crashing during launch and Adobe Lightroom was showing tearing and checkerboard corruption. Both of these should be fixed as well.
Along with these fixes we are also getting game ready support and an SLI profile for this week’s release of Watch Dogs 2. On the other hand, while NVIDIA giveth NVIDIA may taketh away, and they have disabled SLI profiles for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered for reasons unknown.
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 376.09 release notes

Charlie22911 - Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - linkI just wish they would fix folding@home on pascal, it's been broken since 375.xx and my shunt modded water cooled sli 1080s need something to do when I'm not gaming.
Therandomness - Wednesday, November 30, 2016 - linkIt's not just Pascal. If you want to fold, you have to go back to the 373.xx drivers. Those are the only ones that work for folding (and yes, I had this issue with my 750Ti).
DanNeely - Wednesday, November 30, 2016 - linkHave you considered alternate distributed computing platforms until the problem with folding is fixed? I haven't seen any reports of problems with new drivers with Einstein@Home on the BOINC platform; if you'd prefer something biology related IIRC the GPUGrid project does protein folding.
MrSpadge - Wednesday, November 30, 2016 - linkWow didn't know that! Folding happily on my GTX970 and GTX1060 with driver 372.70. didn't bother yet to upgrade, but didn't expect things to break either.
SinxarKnights - Tuesday, November 29, 2016 - linkFinally! GTX 1070 is downclocking normally when monitors set to 144hz. Lets see how long it stays fixed this time.
