Street Fighter V is coming out tomorrow, and Nvidia is making sure that gamers can hadouken each other with maximum graphical fidelity. The company has just released its WHQL-certified 361.91 drivers, which offer some tweaks for Capcom's fighting game and a bevy of SLI profile updates for other titles.
Assassin's Creed Syndicate, XCOM 2, the trial version of Need for Speed, Rainbow Six: Siege, The Division, the Bless MMORPG, and Elite: Dangerous 64-bit all get SLI profiles with this update. GeForce owners can download the 361.91 drivers through GeForce Experience or directly from Nvidia's servers. Click here for the Windows 10 driver, or here for the Windows 8.1, 8, or 7 version. Nvidia's release notes for this release can be read in full here.
Linux-using gerbils will be happy with another tidbit of news. Nvidia has released signed firmware blobs for cards with GM200 and GM204 GPUs, paving the way for the open-source Nouveau project to enable full hardware acceleration on those chips.
Until now, Linux gamers had to use Nvidia's closed-source driver to get 3D acceleration support, a situation that's likely to change soon. Phoronix says the Mesa and Nouveau teams expect to have support for GM200 and GM204-based cards baked into the Linux 4.6 kernel cycle.
