Today seems to be driver update day for the big two graphics card makers. According to many users on Nvidia's forums, Monday's 364.47 drivers were causing critical issues for some users who chose the "Express Install" option during setup. The update caused blue-screen crashes and TDR errors on some computers during the install process. Users would then need to start up in safe mode so they could roll back to the earlier version.
Today's 364.51 driver update addresses those installation issues, allowing users to check out the features intended to roll out with 364.47. The big news for the driver was support for the Vulkan API, but it also included updates for Hitman, Tom Clancy's The Division, Need for Speed, Ashes of the Singlarity, and Rise of the Tomb Raider. On my system, at least, Ashes of the Singularity is now much more stable when running DirectX 12. It's time to re-run some benchmarks.
