NVIDIA GeForce 419.17 graphics drivers released
« on: February 22, 2019, 04:35:55 PM »
What’s New in Version 419.17 WHQL 
- Added support for GeForce GTX 1660 Ti

- NVIDIA Control Panel Updated to version 8.1.950. Added new Developer->Manage GPU Performance Counters controls.

- Video Codec SDK 9.0 (Released Feb 11, 2019)
  Included Features:
  . Supports NVENC/NVDEC on NVIDIA Turing GPUs
  . NVENC API has been updated to support HEVC B-frames on Turing GPUs.
  . NVENC API 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.
  . NVENC API now accepts CUArray as an input buffer. The SDK contains a sample application to demonstrate how to feed Vulkan surface to NVENC using Vulkan-CUDA interop.

- Optical Flow SDK 1.0 (Released Feb 11, 2019)
  This is a new API for Optical Flow and stereo disparity hardware engine, available on Turing GPUs.
