Nvidia drivers – Game Ready 397.64 readies up for Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire

Nvidia’s driver team are back at it with the latest Nvidia drivers, version 397.64, bringing with it support for the latest Destiny 2 expansion, Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire, and Microsoft’s Surface Book 2-in-1s with discrete GPUs.

Tempted by an Nvidia graphics card? Here are the best GeForce GPUs.

The latest drivers include Game Ready driver support for a couple of newly-released titles, including: Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire from veteran devs, Obsidian; Destiny 2’s Warmind expansion from Bungie and Activision; and nudie adventure title Conan Exiles fresh from early access.

Also included this time around is support for top-end Microsoft Surface Books equipped with discrete Nvidia GPUs and a few extra SLI profiles for the slim percentile of users still braving the dual-GPU wildlands. These new profiles cover GRIP, and Kingdom Come: Deliverance – which may require a little extra GPU grunt to run smoothly at high resolutions.

Support for:

  • Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire
  • Destiny 2: Warmind
  • Conan Exiles

Fixed issues:

  • In GTA V, god rays becomes less intense after forcing MSAA using the Nvidia control panel.
  • In Starcraft 2, a black screen appears when exiting the game.
  • With two GTX 780 Ti GPUs in SLI, there is no output when connecting the DisplayPort and two DVI monitors.
  • Netflix playback may stutter intermittently.
  • With a GTX 1060 installed, Windows Device Manager may report Code 43 error.
  • Event Error 14 appears in the Windows Event Viewer when booting into Windows.
  • GDI objects increase every time an application queries NVAPI.
  • Driver may get removed after a Windows 10 PC has been left idle for an extended period of time.

Known issues:

  • With Microsoft Edge, and HDR turned on, video playback in full-screen mode may cause corruption of the video and desktop.

To recover, manually turn the monitor off and back on again.

  • In Far Cry 5, green flickering occurs in the game when using HDR with non-native resolution.

To fix, either quit and then restart the game while in the desired resolution, or press alt+tab away from then back to the game, or press alt+enter to switch to windowed mode and then back to full-screen mode.

  • Wolfenstein may crash during gameplay.
  • In Call of Duty: WWII, with surround enabled, the center surround display is blank during gameplay.
  • In Gears of War 4, a blue-screen crash may occur while playing the game.
  • In Vermintide 2 with DirectX 12 enabled, TDR errors may occur when changing resolutions in game.

To fix temporarily, use the DirectX 11 option.

  • Nvidia Surround hotkeys do not work.
  • Within Shadowplay, the in-game overlay option cannot be enabled, nor does Shadowplay recording work.

The Microsoft Media Foundation library must be installed in order to use these features. Be sure to first install the Media Foundation package.
