3D-Tech News Around The Web / NVIDIA GeForce Game ready driver 418.81
« on: February 04, 2019, 06:14:36 PM »
 Game Ready Drivers provide the best possible gaming experience for all major new releases, including Virtual Reality games. Prior to a new title launching, NVIDIA's driver team is working up until the last minute to ensure every performance tweak and bug fix is included for the best gameplay on day-1.
 
 Gaming Technology
 Includes support for new GeForce RTX laptops, and delivers the optimum performance in Futuremark’s 3DMark Port Royal benchmark, which has just added a new feature test for NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

  • Added initial support for G-SYNC Compatible monitors. See the README for details.
  • Added support for stereo presentation in Vulkan.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause OpenGL applications to crash after repeated VT-switches.
  • Fixed a bug that could sometimes prevent PRIME displays from being selected in the display settings page of nvidia-settings.
  • NVIDIA Video Codec SDK 9.0

    A new release of the Video Codec SDK will be available in Q1 2019.
    For more information and early access sign-up, refer to https://developer.nvidia.com/nvidia-video-codec-sdk

    The main features available in this release are listed below:
    • Support for Turing NVENC/NVDEC.
    • The NVDECODE API (also known as the NVCUVID API) has been updated to support YUV 4:4:4 decoding for HEVC on Turing GPUs.
    • NvEncodeAPI has been updated to support HEVC B-frames on Turing GPUs. NvEncodeAPI adds the capability to output the encoded bitstream, and motion vectors from motion estimation-only mode, to video memory. This avoids the overhead of copying the output from system to video memory for processing pipelines operating directly on video memory.
    • NvEncodeAPI now accepts CUarrays as input buffers. The SDK contains a sample application to demonstrate how to feed a Vulkan image to NVENC using the Vulkan-CUDA interop.
  • Added NVIDIA optical flow support.

    A new library libnvidia-opticalflow.so is included in the driver package. The NVIDIA optical flow library can be used for hardware-accelerated computation of optical flow vectors and stereo disparity values. The API header files, sample applications and documentation will be available in a separate Optical Flow SDK package in Q1 2019.

    For more information and early access sign-up, refer to https://developer.nvidia.com/opticalflow-sdk
  • Removed libnvidia-wfb.so from the driver package. This module was only used on X servers that did not provide their own implementation of libwfb, and all X.Org xserver versions now supported by the driver do so.
  • Updated the VDPAU driver to reject decoding to YUV 4:2:2 video surfaces. The NVIDIA VDPAU driver always produces YUV 4:2:0 content. Previously, the VDPAU driver implicitly converted a YUV 4:2:2 video surface to YUV 4:2:0 during decode. Now, the VDPAU driver will fail the decode request.
  • Optimized nvidia-installer to only run depmod(1) once when installing, rather than twice (once during the uninstall phase and again when installing new kernel modules).
  • Removed the NVreg_UseThreadedInterrupts kernel module parameter from nvidia.ko. This removes the ability to forcibly fall back to an older mechanism (tasklets) for running the bottom-half interrupt handler. Instead, threaded IRQs (the default since 367.44) are always used.

Intel Graphics Driver for Windows 10 Version: DCH 25.20.100.6519

These new drivers labeled as Windows DCH graphics drivers are not backward compatible with our previous graphics drivers that we're now labeling Legacy. This means if later you want to revert to a Legacy driver you will need to uninstall the driver via Windows Apps and Features and reboot the system before installing a Legacy driver. Failure to do so may result in minor to catastrophic issues on your system as well as system instability.


DO NOT use the INF / Have-Disk method to install or uninstall this driver as it bypasses the Intel installer designed to install these new drivers, thereby possibly resulting in minor to major system instability. For this reason, we're not providing the ZIP file for the next several driver releases while users transition to this new Microsoft driver platform.


For more information about DCH drivers, read here.


If you have read this and would like to download the driver for install, please go here.
