Another couple of game launches, another GeForce driver release. This time around, Nvidia is serving up GeForce drivers version 375.86. The new package is WHQL-approved and Game Ready for the latest updates to Battlefield 1, Civilization VI, and The Division. These drivers also add specific support for Ubisoft's new snowboarding game Steep, ensuring that GeForce gamers will be ready for this weekend's open beta.
Besides a temporal SLI profile for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, the rest of the changes in this driver comprise a whole bunch of bugfixes. These drivers should resolve the smearing and ghosting problems some users were having with recent GeForce driver versions. Nvidia Surround should work on GTX 1080s using SLI HB bridges again. G-Sync monitors should finally stop flickering at 144 Hz and 165 Hz—for real, this time.
Known issues in the current release include crashing in The Division in full-screen mode, flickering using Ansel on SLI rigs, and Shadowplay-related crashes in For Honor. Check out the full release notes here. Folks who aren't registered in GeForce Experience can go to Nvidia's download page to grab the new release.
