Do I need to bother if I don't have a 20x0 card? I wish they'd just say that.

usually with a newer gen card, especially with a dramatic core architecture change, i would stay on top of updating the driver more frequently as new issues are worked out.

really depends on whether a game you play got patched or some other core issue.


Fixed Issues in this Release:

[Windows Defender Application Guard][vGPU][Surround]: Edge Browser with Application Guard cannot be opened when Surround is enabled. [200443580]

[Turing GPU]: Multi-monitor idle power draw is very high. [2400161]

[GeForce RTX 2080 Ti][G-Sync]: Blue-screen crash may occur when exiting games when using a G-Sync monitor with a non-G-Sync monitor. [2431628]

[GeForce RTX 2080 Ti]: Stuttering occurs with HEVC video playback. [2414594]

[GeForce GTX 970]: When audio playback is paused, audio receiver switches from multi-channel to stereo. Increased period from 5 seconds to 10 seconds. [2327715]

[GeForce GTX 1060]AV receiver switches to 2-channel stereo mode after 5 seconds of audio idle. [2204857]

[SLI][NVIDIA TITAN X][NVENC]: Recording and streaming of NVENC applications do not work. [2421622]

[DirectX 11 games]: Mouse cursor causes FPS to go out of sync with windowed G-Sync. [2411009]

[ARK Survival]: Improved game stability. [2420789]

[Shadow of the Tomb Raider]: Improved game stability. [2416743]

[Witcher 3 Wild Hunt]: Flickering occurs during gameplay. [200455193]

[Monster Hunter World]: Corruption is seen when Volume Rendering is off. [2400914]

[Far Cry 5]: Flickering occurs during gameplay. [2400207]

This is ALL I care about. So since no specific card is mentioned, it's a general stability improvement regardless of card? On a 1070ti but can always use improvements. Currently having a blast in the game. Worth updating my drivers now while I'm in it if the improvements will come.

EDIT - Just realized Witcher 3 was in there as well. Pretty cool considering the game's age now. I'm not sure I ever experienced flickering but I do have it installed as well working on another playthrough. Good to know they are still fixing what they can.
