GeForce Game Ready Driver 441.87 changelogs:

 

Game Ready:

Spoiler
  • The new Game Ready Driver provides the latest performance optimizations, profiles, and bug fixes for the release of ray tracing and DLSS in Wolfenstein: Youngblood. In addition, this driver provides optimal support for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne, Bright Memory: Infinite, and the latest version of Quake II RTX.

 

New Features:

Spoiler
  • Maximum Frame Rate

    • This driver introduces a new Max Frame Rate setting that allows users to cap the frame rate at which a 3D game or application is rendered. This feature is helpful when trying to save power, reduce system latency or paired with your NVIDIA G-SYNC display to stay within variable refresh rate range. Access the feature from the NVIDIA Control Panel->Manage 3D Settings->Max Frame Rate.

  • Variable Rate Super Sampling

    • Variable Rate Super Sampling (VRSS) is a new technique to improve image quality in VR games. It uses NVIDIA Variable Rate Shading (VRS), a key feature in NVIDIA’s Turing architecture, to dynamically apply up to 8x supersampling to the center of the VR headset display, where the eye is typically focused. It intelligently applies supersampling only when GPU headroom is available in order to maintain the VR headset’s fixed FPS and ensure a smooth VR experience. Enable the feature for over 20 supported VR games from the NVIDIA Control Panel->Manage 3D Settings- >Variable Rate Super Sampling.

  • Image Sharpening Improvements

    • Based on feedback from gamers, we’ve been enhancing the recently released Image Sharpening feature. With this latest version, you can now toggle GPU scaling independent of whether image sharpening is enabled or disabled. Access the feature from the NVIDIA Control Panel->Manage 3D Settings->Image Sharpening

  • Freestyle ‘Splitscreen’ Filter

    • Freestyle has added a new splitscreen filter that allows gamers to apply filters to only a portion of the game screen. With the filter, you can split the screen, showcase a side-by-side comparison, or even blend filters using the gradient function. With GeForce Experience installed, press the Alt+F3 hotkey to open the Freestyle overlay from within your game and access the new filter from the ‘Filters’ menu.

  • 33 New Optimal Game Settings

    • NVIDIA has recently added Optimal Game Settings for 33 additional games, giving you one click setting recommendations for the latest releases. Optimal settings can be applied from GeForce Experience->Games tab.

 

G-Sync Compatible Monitors:

Spoiler

Our newest Game Ready Driver driver is adding support for an additional 8 G-SYNC Compatible displays, and we’ve announced future support for a further 17, including new LG OLED 2020 BFGD TVs. These gaming monitors and TVs deliver a baseline Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) experience that makes your gaming smoother, clearer, and more enjoyable.

 

Game Ready Fixes (For full list of fixes please check out release notes):

Spoiler
  • [Red Dead Redemption 2][Vulkan]: Improved image sharpening for Red Redemption 2 in Vulkan mode. [2781732]

  • [Strange Brigade - Vulkan][SLI][G-SYNC]: G-SYNC is not working properly when the Vulkan version of the game is played in SLI mode. [200439997]

 

Important Open Issues (For full list of open issues please check out release notes):

Spoiler
  • Windows 10 Only [Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege][Vulkan][G-SYNC]: When playing the game in Vulkan mode with G-SYNC enabled, flickering occurs after switching the game between full-screen and windowed mode.[200578641]

    • To work around, either disable G-SYNC or play using an API other than Vulkan.

  • Windows 10 Only [Doom (2016)][GeForce 600/700 series GPUs]: The game crashes. [2791124]

  • Windows 10 Only [Battleye][Low-Latency Mode]: Background apps may close when launching some BattlEye games with Low-Latency mode set to Ultra. [2775906]

  • Windows 10 Only [Wolfenstein Youngblood][SLI]: Performance drop may occur when using 2-way SLI mode. [2599248].

  • Windows 10 Only [Red Dead Redemption 2][Vulkan][SLI]: The benchmark crashes when played in Vulkan mode with SLI enabled and graphics settings set to Ultra. [200565367]

  • Windows 7 Only [World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth][DirectX 12]: The game crashes when switched from DirectX 11 to DirectX 12 mode. [200574934]

Feedback thread:

 

For Windows 10 users, check your driver type (standard or DCH) first before installing. You will need to open the NVIDIA Control Panel and refer to the System Information to determine what type of driver is installed (either DCH or Standard).

More info: https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4777/~/nvidia-dch%2Fstandard-display-drivers-for-windows-10-faq


Also for Windows 10 users running v1803 and above, you can migrate to use DCH driver from Standard driver as well.
 

Important note for Windows 7 users:
Microsoft now provides only SHA-2 signed drivers. If your Windows 7 system is NOT equipped to detect SHA-2, you need to install the SHA-2 update support patches. For details as well as access to SHA-2 update support patches, see the Microsoft KBA "2019 SHA-2 Code Signing Support requirement for Windows and WSUS".

clarifying how DCH drivers are installed, requires minimum Windows 10 v1803 to install the DCH drivers.

Perhaps interesting to know, but since the previous game ready driver (441.66) you get the DCH driver by default, whereby the NVIDIA Control Panel is installed on the Windows Store on Windows 10.

 

More about this here

 

If you are still running an older Windows 10 version, that can cause problems.

For those who are running Windows 10 Enterprise LTS v1507 and v1607, they have to only install the standard driver manually. If under Enterprise LTS v1809, can safely migrate to DCH driver without any problems. When I reformatted my laptop using recovery image (based on Windows 10 v1803), the system comes with standard driver but I managed to upgrade it to DCH without any stability issues.
