Earlier this week NVIDIA released the GeForce 445.75 Game Ready Drivers as part of their downgraded GTC schedule, introducing DLSS 2.0 to the RTX GPU feature set.

This update is only appropriate for Windows 10 users experiencing this specific (but quite important) flaw. The fix should be rolled out to the main driver branch on the next release, likely scheduled to coincide with the release of Resident Evil 3 on April 3rd. All credit to NVIDIA for the swift turn-around on the fix despite what must be rather frustrating working conditions.
