NVIDIA GeForce 397.31 Graphics Driver Released (OpenGL 4.6, Vulkan 1.1, RTX, CUDA 9.2)




NVIDIA logo


Update (2018.05.04): NVIDIA has released a hotfix driver that fixes some bugs of 397.31:


NVIDIA has released a new set of graphics drivers for all GeForce graphics cards. This driver is part of NVIDIA’s Release 396 family and comes with the support of Vulkan 1.1, NVIDIA RTX (see HERE and HERE) and CUDA 9.2.

And with family 396, NVIDIA stops the releasing of drivers for Windows 32-bit.

Release Highlights

NVIDIA RTXTM Technology
Developer preview for NVIDIA RTX ray tracing technology for DirectX 12. NVIDIA RTX supports the Microsoft DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API on NVIDIA Volta GPUs. In order to get started with developing DirectX Raytracing applications accelerated by RTX, you’ll need the following:
– NVIDIA Volta GPU
– NVIDIA driver version 396 or higher
– Windows 10 RS4
– Microsoft’s DXR developer package, consisting of DXR-enabled D3D runtimes, HLSL compiler, and headers

Vulkan 1.1
This driver release provides full support for the new Vulkan 1.1 API and passes the Vulkan Conformance Test Suite (CTS) version 1.1.0.3.

HD Audio
This driver adds new sample rates 32 kHz, 88.2 kHz, and 176.4 kHz to the HDMI device for all GPUs.

Display Driver Standalone Installer
The standalone display driver installer now removes extracted files after installing the driver, leaving a smaller footprint on the hard drive.

Display Driver Libraries
Added new libraries (nvdlist.dll and nvdlistx.dll) to support Optimus and MSHybrid notebooks.

NVDECODE API
Added a new API that lets the client reconfigure the decoder resolution and other post processing parameters (such as the display resolution, cropping rectangle, and aspect ratio of the decoded frame) without having to destroy and recreate the decoder instance. This API is useful in scenarios where the decoder instance initialization time takes up a significant portion of the overall decode execution time; for example, in back-to-back decoding of multiple short clips of different resolutions. The new API will be included in Video Codec SDK 8.2, which is expected to release in late Q2 2018.

  1. NV

    https://developer.nvidia.com/vulkan-driver

    Nvidia 397.40 Windows developer beta driver.

    April 25th, 2018 – Windows 397.40, Linux 396.18.05

    Windows driver feature parity with Linux 396.18.02
    Bug fixes

    April 17th, 2018 – Linux 396.18.02

    New Extensions
    VK_EXT_descriptor_indexing
    Increased several resource limits, notably:
    maxPerStageDescriptorUniformBuffers: 12 -> 15
    maxPerStageDescriptorSamplers: 4,000 -> 1,048,576
    maxPerStageDescriptorSampledImages: 16,384 -> 1,048,576
    maxPerStageDescriptorStorageBuffers: 4,096 -> 1,048,576
    And many others
    Shader performance improvements
