NVIDIA GeForce 418.81 WHQL Graphics Drivers Released, GeForce RTX for Laptop and Vulkan 1.1.95 support added




NVIDIA logo

 
NVIDIA has published a new graphics driver for Windows 7/8 and Windows 10 that brings the support for new GeForce RTX laptops and delivers the best performance in the DLSS-updated (DLSS for Deep Learning Super Sampling) version of 3DMark Port Royal benchmark.

GeForce 418.81 supports all GeForce 600 series, GeForce 700 series, GeForce 900 series, GeForce 10 series, GeForce TITAN series and GeForce RTX 20 series.

Fixed issues in GeForce 418.81:

– [Gamestream][OS HDR]: Stream is not set to launch in HDR despite having HDR display attached to the PC and client. [2467526]

– [GeForce Experience]: Share FPS overlay appears in the Twitter UWP app from the Microsoft Store. [2465033]

– [G-SYNC]: Flickering may occurs in games if G-SYNC is enabled. [2399845]

– [G-SYNC]: With G-SYNC enabled, after hot-pugging a G-SYNC display and then a G-SYNC Compatible display, the right half of the G-SYNC Compatible display may go blank. [200484819]
