NVIDIA's GeForce 378.49 WHQL Drivers Add RE7 Optimisations

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅25.01.2017 12:17:50

NVIDIA have released their latest Game Ready GeForce driver package, highlighting optimal support for Capcom's Resident Evil 7 Biohazard and the upcoming range of GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti powered notebooks. The GeForce 378.49 WHQL drivers can be downloaded via the GeForce Experience desktop app or directly from geforce.com/drivers.

Although this release focuses on Resident Evil and the GTX 1050-class hardware newly available this week, NVIDIA have also incorporated tweaks for two PC beta experiences. Both For Honor's closed beta and Conan Exiles' Early Access builds should see improved stability, and provide a framework for a future Game Ready driver should any issues or performance limitations be uncovered in this release.

NVIDIA are also not neglecting SLI in 378.49 as eleven games see new or updated profiles, including Watch_Dogs 2 and Battlefield 1. If you're running any of these games and a multi-GPU system these drivers are likely worth a look.
