AMD has released the latest version of its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition. The reason these are not marked 17.1, after January 2017, is because they’re just WHQL-signed versions of the 16.12.2 beta drivers released in December 2016, and as such feature an identical change-log.

NVIDIA has released the GeForce 376.33 WHQL drivers. These drivers come with a number of bug-fixes covering the previous GeForce 376.19 drivers, particularly with its Oculus Touch VR game title-specific optimizations. According to the release notes, these drivers seem to disable SLI support for “Titanfall 2,” probably because it’s too unstable at the moment.

UPDATE:

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t regularly update their graphics card drivers, and you’re rocking an NVIDIA graphics card, you really should update your drivers to the latest WHQL version, 376.33. The release notes and a security bulletin issued by the company point towards the fixing of multiple detected kernel layer (nvlddmkm.sys) vulnerabilities in NVIDIA’s previous driver releases, which could “Lead to a Denial of Service, Escalation of Privileges, or Both”.

In total, there are seven reported vulnerabilities as having been fixed, with NVIDIA acknowledging contributions in the issues’ detection from engineers with Google Project Zero and Cisco Talos.

You can download the new GeForce 376.33 WHQL drivers from GeForce Experience and GeForce.com.

AMD has just announced their 2016 major software update release (following Catalyst Omega in 2014 and Crimson Edition in 2015). It’s dubbed the “Crimson ReLive” release (numbered 12.6.1), and is purported to bring a lot of features and performance improvements across the board for AMD products, as has been historically achieved by AMD with these annual driver releases. This time, there’s just one other thing: game recording and streaming through the built-in ReLive app. It serves as a streaming app that works for both professional, developer and consumer use cases. It supports major streaming giants (such as Twitch and YouTube), includes an in-app toolbar and custom overlay, and is apparently going to feature its own tab inside AMD’s updated driver suite, with minimal reported impact on performance.

NVIDIA has today released their latest GeForce Game Ready drivers, in the form of the 376.19 WHQL release. The new drivers boast support for Oculus Touch launch titles, such as Crytek’s “The Climb”, Oculus Studios’ “Oculus First Contact”, Insomniac’s “The Unspoken”, The Stork Burnt Down’s “Home Improvisation: Furniture Sandbox” for all your furbishing-related needs and IKEA doctorate, as well as Escalation Studios’ “Please, Don’t Touch Anything”, along with an estimated 345 other Oculus Touch launch games (in reality, closer to 49 others;I admit, I picked some of the most interesting names). Also, remember that article about the VR bubble bursting?)

Lacking are any additional SLI profiles, though there are some resolved issues specifically on Windows 10: an issue where No Man’s Sky with the Foundation Update (1.10) would display severe texture corruption with SLI enabled, G-SYNC flickering issues on notebooks, as well as a notebook G-SYNC pendulum demo issue. For those of you using 3D Vision, there are some updates on that field as well, with four new profiles for Dead Rising 4, Mars 2030, Serious Sam and SuperHot.

The GeForce website now offers new version 375.86 WHQL-certified GeForce drivers for NVIDIA graphics cards. These are the game-ready drivers for Battlefield 1, Civilization VI, Tom Clancy’s The Division, and the Steep open beta. They explain:

So if you’re a fan of these three titles, be sure to snag the new driver in preparation.” Be warned, some are reporting problems with this release, and this thread is where these are being discussed. Word is that some users are experiencing flickering in SLI configurations and that some users of 1080/1070/1060 cards are experiencing incorrect memory timings.
