The big Nvidia news for today is clearly the out-of-nowhere release of the Titan Xp über-card. That's not the only thing the green graphics gurus have in store, though. The company just released its latest GeForce Game Ready drivers, version 381.65. The big items in this update are support for the Titan Xp and optimizations for the closed beta version of Bethesda's upcoming Quake Champions arena shooter. Other perks include Ansel support for the stylish mystery game Kona and the colorful puzzle-platformer Snake Pass. Nvidia also says the 381.65 is the driver version to get in preparation for the upcoming release of Windows 10 Creators Update, scheduled for April 11.
Smaller nuggets in the release notes include support for DTS:X and Dolby Atmos on 5.1.2 speaker setups, Dolby Vision support in games, and a few changes to the Nvidia Control Panel. The update also adds an SLI profile for the upcoming Descent: Underground and fixes graphical anomalies in Rise of the Tomb Raider, Battlefield 1, and Serious Sam HD. A bug causing GeForce 980 Ti graphics cards to enter a low-power state after Alt-Tabbing out of a game has also been squashed.
