Nvidia releases a 'Game Ready' driver package for Fallout 4 VR

Nvidia has released new GeForce 388.59 WHQL drivers, though they don't bring anything special to the table for the company's new Volta-powered Titan V. Instead, it brings optimizations to Fallout 4 VR.

It's a relatively minor driver update—there are no other performance enhancements mentioned in the release notes. There's also just a single bug fix. The new driver addresses a flickering issue that can occur on some G-Sync laptops with a 120Hz panel and GeForce GTX 1080 GPU.

Beyond that, Nvidia notes a handful of open issues. They include:

  • [Nvidia Titan V]: TDR error occurs and the display goes blank while playing a Bluray disc at high resolutions.
  • [Nvidia Titan V][G-Sync]: G-Sync displays may go blank when switching between different overclocked memory clocks multiple times.
  • [SLI][GeForce GTX 780 Ti]: There is no display output when connecting the DisplayPort and two DVI monitors.
  • [GeForce Titan (Kepler-based)]: The OS fails after installing the graphics card on a Threadripper-enabled motherboard.
  • [Kepler GPUs][StarWars Battlefront II]: The system hangs when launching the game in DirectX 12 API mode.
  • [Windows 10 Fall Creators Update]: Color settings made in the Nvidia Control Panel are not preserved across a system reboot or restart.
  • [Heaven Benchmark]: With the benchmark running in windowed mode, a blue-screen crash occurs while loading video content.

As for Fallout 4 VR, it's been available to preorder on Steam for several months, and still is. It releases next week on Tuesday, December 12. Fallout 4 VR includes the complete core game with new combat, crafting, and building systems that are "fully reimagined for VR."
