NVIDIA today released a hotfix version of its GeForce driver suite. Numbered the 378.77, these fix some issues with the previous driver release, numbered 378.66. Solved issues include driver installation errors for laptops with GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti GPUs, crashes in Minecraft and some other Java-based titles, and resolving ‘Debug Mode’ as default option on Pascal based GPUs.

This driver release contains all previous improvements, including an optimized experience for Sniper Elite 4, For Honor and Halo Wars 2, whilst also introducing support for NVIDIA’s Video SDK 8.0, which provides support for high-bit-depth (10/12-bit) hardware accelerated video decoding of VP9 and HEVC.

You can download the new GeForce 378.77 Hotfix drivers from GeForce Experience and GeForce.com.

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.

NVIDIA released the GeForce 376.80 Beta drivers. These drivers are being released exclusively through the Vulkan developer support channel, and come with bug fixes for the company’s implementation of Vulkan API support. The change-log is limited to just “bug fixes,” and the drivers are not WHQL-signed. If you’re gaming on the Vulkan API, on titles such as “Doom,” “Ashes of the Singularity,” etc.

You can download the new GeForce 376.80 Beta Vulkan Support driver from the NVIDIA Vulkan Support site.
