Another day, another graphics driver release. Today's pack o' DLLs comes from Nvidia, who released the GeForce 381.89 drivers. This update doesn't bring any major new features but comes with support for a handful of new games along with a few bugfixes. The new drivers should be good for dispensing major dakka in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III, controlling towers on Heroes of the Storm 2.0, having fun in Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality or employing your local laundrymen after playing some Wilson's Heart.
As for noteworthy bug fixes, prospective scope-watchers playing Sniper Elite 3 should no longer see the game crash, while users with a DisplayPort monitor plugged to a notebook should no longer experience a BSOD during the driver installation. Owners of GTX 1060 cards should likewise be happy to know that their systems will no longer show a blue-screen referencing Nvlddmkm.sys when coming back from sleep mode. Finally, Nvidia says that GPU idle voltage should be back to normal.
Outstanding issues in the latest release include failed installations when upgrading drivers through GeForce Experience under Windows 10, "random memory errors" when playing Mass Effect: Andromeda on GeForce GTX 1080 cards, and black screens after driver updates on Pascal-powered notebooks. An error code might pop up in the Device Manager if the drivers are installed with an HDMI display connected, too.
