AMD has released another driver suite for their Radeon graphics cards, in the form of the 17.11.1 Beta drivers. These bring support, and the best experience, for Call of Duty: WWII, with up to 5% faster performance on Radeon RX Vega64 (8 GB) graphics than with Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.3 at 2560×1440.

Additionally, this driver brings AMD XConnect technology improvements for Vega 56. XConnect is AMD’s technology that allows seamless plug and play ability for eGPU enclosures, and with this update, AMD is increasing the number of eGPU solutions that support AMD’s RX Vega 56 graphics cards in this configuration. There’s also an extensive list of fixes (including a particularly nasty bug where system devices such as printers could be removed during Radeon Software uninstallation) and known issues, which you can catch after the break. As always, you can download your drivers right here, on the best website of the known universe.

NVIDIA today released GeForce 388.13 WHQL software. These drivers are game-ready for the week’s hottest AAA game releases, “Call of Duty: WWII,” “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus,” and “Need for Speed: Payback.” This includes performance optimization, and GeForce Experience optimal settings. The drivers also add official support for the new GeForce GTX 1070 Ti graphics card, which makes its market debut on the 2nd of November.

The drivers also address a few bugs, including a rare issue with secondary displays blanking out on some systems, “Yellow bang appearing by the graphics entry in Device Manager,” and momentary display corruption on notebooks with hybrid GPUs, in which the display is switching between the CPU-integrated and NVIDIA discrete GPUs.

AMD released the latest version of its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition drivers. Version 17.10.2 beta fixes a number of bugs, while building on the feature set of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update-exclusive driver update the company put out last week. To begin with, the drivers come with optimization for “Destiny 2,” “Assassin’s Creed: Origins,” and “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.” One can expect performance improvements of a massive 43-50 percent on “Destiny 2,” a significant 13-16 percent on “Assassin’s Creed: Origins,” and 4-8 percent on “Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus.”

The drivers also introduce an interesting new feature called “GPU Workload,” found in Radeon Settings, which lets you instantly switch between two GPU optimization modes: “gaming” and “compute.” The drivers can now simultaneously run up to 12 AMD Radeon GPUs on a single machine, making it economical for crypto-coin miners to install more GPUs into fewer machines, saving power and platform costs. The drivers also fix display corruption bugs related to “Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds,” and a rare game crash with “Hearts of Iron IV.”

AMD today released Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.10.1 drivers. Released for Windows 10 and Windows 7, these beta drivers add optimization for “Middle Earth: Shadow of War,” and “Evil Within 2.” The optimization includes Radeon Chill profiles, which tell the GPU exactly when to downclock, for the best thermals and power-usage, without sacrificing performance. The drivers also fix bezel-compensation application on mixed-mode Eyefinity setups, and rare flickering issues noticed with “DiRT 4″ on certain multi-GPU setups.

NVIDIA today released the GeForce 387.92 Game Ready Graphics Drivers, which presents a more comprehensive package than most Game Ready drivers. This time, the changes aren’t mostly limited to new, upcoming games support, though that’s still part of the package. On that front, you can count on these drivers being optimized for the upcoming Middle-earth: Shadow of War and The Evil Within 2, as well as Forza Motorsport 7, on which NVIDIA expects anywhere between 15% and 25% performance improvement (which should help improve NVIDIA’s situation). On the VR space, this driver package brings the optimal experience for 4A Games’ Artika.1 (if you recognize the studios’ name, it’s probably because they’re the ones behind the Metro game series.

Also interesting, however, are the feature updates that come with this driver package. Fast Sync is now supported for SLI configurations, though Maxwell architecture users should steer clear of 4K resolution, which isn’t supported for this feature. There’s also NVIDIA GameStream support for HDR under Windows 10. On the renderer side, we see added support for OpenGL 4.61, as well as for DirectX Intermediate Language (DXIL). This includes full support for DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.0 ( for features such as Wavemath), and the DirectX Shader Compiler, though it’s only supported on NVIDIA Kepler and later GPUs. There are also some improvements to full-screen Vulkan applications, though this particular change may cause more errors while leaving and entering full-screen mode (Alt-Tab).
