As the news has been, new game releases means more driver updates. Alongside game ready support for more titles this week and a fix we also get a heads up on some key issues.

In this driver release brings us to the release 367 of the graphics drivers. In this round NVIDIA fixed an issue under Windows 10 where Tom Clancy’s The Division exhibited stuttering after 20 to 30 minutes. NVIDIA states elsewhere in the report that in the R367 and future driver releases that Crescent Bay and OSVR development kits will not work in NVIDIA VRWorks Direct Mode in systems containing GPUs from multiple vendors (e.g. NVIDIA and Intel). NVIDIA recommends disabling any GPUs from other vendors from inside the BIOS in order to use Direct Mode. NVIDIA also mentioned in the release notes that issues were found with Total War: Warhammer during testing. NVIDIA say’s they are working closely with Creative Assembly to resolve the issues that were found. They recommend running the newest drivers and latest game updates to ensure the best possible experience.

NVIDIA is of course providing updated support for multiple games this week. At the top of the list is this week’s release of Overwatch. With this new release NVIDIA also took the liberty to test out and provide hardware recommendations for those preparing themselves for release. With this data taken at face value it sounds like Overwatch will be easy enough to run with performance ranging from an average of 60fps at 1080p medium on the GTX 950 to an average of 60fps on High at 4K with a 980Ti. World of Tanks and War Thunder will also be receiving optimizations to coincide with their latest updates.

Anyone interested can download the updated drivers through GeForce Experience or on the NVIDIA driver download page. More information on this update and further issues can be found in the 368.22 release notes.

    nVidia added "Optimal Power" alongside Adaptive Power and Prefer Performance

    anyone knows what Optimal Power does differently?

    Adaptive power - Changes depending on what you need.
    Prefer performance - Saving battery but performance when needed.
    Optimal power - Everything running at max battery.

    Pretty obvious?

    Not at all obvious. In fact optimal power sounds more like a power saving feature, otherwise the term would be maximum power, wouldn't it? Where is your source? I couldn't find anything in the driver release notes. Reply

    I have no source but decided to offer a possible explanation. Reply

    Not obvious. "Optimal power" should be "Maximum power saving" if you're correct. Under "Optimal power" I would understand a solution which always delivers the GPU the "optimal" amount of power, i.e. enough to achieve a target fps value but nothing more. Which is actually an adaptive scheme which I would expect the "Adaptive power" mode to apply. Reply

    So... agree or disagree? Reply

    In my case 'optimal power' sends my top card to 95c and then throttles down to 540mhz, and my second card acts as normal (60c). I think it then tries to give the top card more power to get more performance and it stays at 90~95c, and I get about 6-10fps. They fucked up somewhere, or they're using us as guinea, pigs or both.
    I'm quite suspicious about the fact that they added the feature, set it as default, and didn't say anything about it, or give any description..

    The article title is 365.10 instead of 368.22 Reply

    Quite bad, Warhammer releasing in three days and being the CA game people actually care about. Reply

    Seriously what is up with the vaunted ~*NVIDIA Drivers*~ this past year or so? Missing game day drivers on a major game that has driver issues because of it and having multiple other buggy releases? Recently RTG's been showing them up. I'm so very confused, my 290's rock steady while the 970 I ditched for it was troublesome. Reply
