Graphics card driver updates and big-budget game releases go together like peas and carrots. In today's case, the carrot is Prey, Bethesda Softworks' FPS franchise reboot, and the peas come from Nvidia's big green driver team. The GeForce Game Ready 382.05 driver release contains support for Prey, Battlezone, and the multi-GPU update for Gears of War 4.
The driver also adds SLI support for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 and Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III along with fixes for a handful of older titles including No Man's Sky, World of Tanks, and Gears of War. A bug with the appearance of the Nvidia Control Panel in the system tray and the desktop context menu has been fixed. Nvidia promises that extended displays in multi-monitor configurations will be able to enter sleep mode and that black screens after a cold boot will be a thing of the past.
A number of bugs remain unsquashed, including V-Sync being disabled when Fast Sync is selected, crashing in SteamVR, and problems with HDR video in Power DVD 17. The full list can be found in the release notes. As always, gerbils who have read enough can proceed directly to Nvidia's GeForce Drivers page.
