NVIDIA has rolled out new GeForce ‘Game Ready’ 378.66 WHQL driver that brings optimization for Sniper Elite 4, For Honor, and Halo Wars 2. A key new feature included with this release is the Video SDK 8.0 with high-bit-depth (10/12-bit) decoding (VP9/HEVC), OpenGL input surface support for encoder, weighted prediction, and H.264 ME-only mode enhancements.
Additionally, the releases includes several fixes as well. These include the following:
[Surround]: Surround cannot be enabled on the XGPU.
[G-Sync]: With G-Sync and V-Sync both enabled, there is a long delay when switching a game from full-screen mode to windowed mode.
[Second Life 64-bit]: World view is tinted blue after disabling Advanced Lighting Model.
[The Division]: Shadows flicker after enabling PCSS.
