New NVIDIA GeForce Drivers

The GeForce Website now offers new version 442.19 GeForce Windows drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards. These promise day-one support for Zombie Army: Dead War 4, Apex Legends: Season 4, and Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story, while also adding support for three new G-SYNC Compatible gaming monitors. As described below, these also enhance the recently added Max Frame Rate and Variable Rate Supersampling features:
In our previous driver, we introduced two new NVIDIA Control Panel features: Max Frame Rate, for optimizing performance and power use, and Variable Rate Supersampling (VRSS), a VR game image quality enhancement.

In our new driver, we are enhancing their functionality based on your feedback. For Max Frame Rate, the FPS range is now 20 to 1000 FPS, and for VRSS, you can now also enable the feature on the Global tab, automatically activating it in all supported games.

Not having bought a new game in years, just when is it time to update? No doubt if something goes wrong. Any reason to if all is ok? Benefits with windows 10, etc.? Must be at least 5 years now since I last updated.

Nvidia has added a lot of great features lately like a huge amount of FreeSync monitors supported (not just requiring their G-sync module for adaptive sync anymore), G-Sync/FreeSync over HDMI in addition to DP, FPS limiter, newer Vulkan features, integer scaling, and of course the typical bug fixes, security fixes, performance improvements, etc.

But yea if you're on an old PC with old games then I guess you don't need to upgrade. Using latest drivers runs great on my Win10/ GTX 1080 box though.

This. Driver updates haven't been a problem, if I hit one at all, I just went back one, it isn't like it bricks the unit. But I can't recall when that may have happened now.

No need to update your drivers if all is working well.

AMD drivers on my platform are rock solid and far better than Nvidia's offering. So far, so excellent. Go team red.

I recently switched from AMD gpus after 10 years to nvidia (2080 rtx) as I was killed by amd drivers. So far so good, go team green.

I've typically waited a week before upgrading. I want to make sure there are no reported issues. Though I do remember, one time getting a BSOD after installing on day one. Fortunately, in that situation, Windows 10 rolled back the update, and NVIDIA released a hot-fix a day later, so as worse case scenarios go, it was not too bad.
