These drivers come with optimization for “Mass Effect: Andromeda,” including support for AMD CrossFire in DirectX 11 mode. To enable CrossFire, however, you need to input “-RenderDevice.AmdCrossfireEnable 1″ as a command-line argument (set launch options in Origin). The drivers also fix a texture flickering issue noticed with the game.

nvidia-gtx-1080-tiTomorrow, March 10th, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti goes on sale. Featuring the most powerful and efficient hardware we’ve ever designed, the $699 GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is up to 35% faster than the GeForce GTX 1080, and is even faster in games than the $1200 NVIDIA TITAN X.

The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti achieves this feat through its implementation of 3,584 CUDA Cores, and 11GB of next-gen GDDR5X Video Memory (G5X VRAM) running out of the box at 11 Gbps. Even faster than the G5X memory on the GeForce GTX 1080 and NVIDIA TITAN X, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti’s blisteringly-fast G5X memory further increases memory bandwidth and takes performance to new heights.

In addition, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Founders Edition features a new high-airflow thermal solution that’s cooler and quieter than previous designs, maximizing the potential of GPU Boost and enabling overclockers to achieve even faster speeds. And under the hood efficiency is improved thanks to a new 7-phase power design with 14 high-efficiency dualFETs that deliver better power efficiency at the highest usage and power levels.

We have a roundup of reviews on the new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti and the Founders Edition listed below:

NVIDIA today released a new Game Ready driver package containing performance tweaks and optimizations for three games: Sniper Elite 4, For Honor, and Halo Wars 2.

The new driver, version 378.66, is WHQL certified and not a beta release. It’s a relatively minor update in that it doesn’t introduce any SLI profiles that weren’t already included in prior 378 drivers, though it did add 3D compatibility mode profiles for Sniper Elite 4 and For Honor, both listed as “excellent.” You can grab the release notes here.
