NVIDIA is known for its promptness when it comes to releasing Game Ready drivers when major game titles are launch. This means the roll-out of its 370 drivers iteration, version 373.06 WHQL for GeForce cards, out now comes complete with a short list of fixes along with support for some major games.

Some the significant fixes the update comes with are improved frame-rate consistency for VR games in Windows 10 applications along with a fix for a broken FPS limiter that created issues while running in a windowed mode with high FPS. Other than these, there’s also a fix for bugs associated with the GeForce GT 720 and 705 experienced in all Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 while saving custom color settings after a shutdown or resume.

The update includes game profiles for significant titles like Gears of War 4, Shadow Warrior 2 and Mafia III. with over 100 customizations available for Gears of War alone. Other than profile additions, tweaks for re-enabling SLI support for Battlefield 1 and Iron Storm are also incorporated

There are certain other notable tech-related changes bundled with the 37x drivers updates you might consider upgrading if you want a game ready machine. These include:

  • Enabled Fast Sync for Maxwell GPUs and the Extended, Clone, and Surround multimonitor configurations.

  • Support for updated BatteryBoost technology.

  • Enabled mclk switches on 144 Hz G-SYNC monitors in multi-monitor use cases in order to lower power consumption.

  • Support OpenGL VR SDK 1.4 (Windows).

  • Added a Windows cross-API interop between Vulkan and DirectX 11. This enables Vulkan app compatibility with existing DirectX 11-based HMD runtimes.

  • Added driver support for DXGI 2 VR.

  • Added security updates for driver components

If any of these features interest you, you can get the drivers through GeForce or on the NVIDIA driver download page. Further details regarding the update release can be found in the 373.06 release notes.
