Three More Monitors Now 'G-Sync Compatible' With GeForce 419.35 Drivers

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅05.03.2019 21:17:13



NVIDIA's busy 2019 continues as they release the GeForce Game Ready 419.35 WHQL drivers for GTX and RTX graphics cards. Following up on this year's biggest game launches so far, it optimises for upcoming titles Devil May Cry 5 and Tom Clancey's The Division II, but they're not the only highlights of this update.

In January NVIDIA announced support for the Adaptive Sync monitor variable refresh rate standard, including baked-in settings for models deemed good enough to warrant much-prized 'G-Sync Compatible' certification. Only twelve monitors of the hundreds currently on the market qualified, but this driver brings that number up to 15 with the addition of the Acer ED273A, Acer XF250Q and BenQ XL2540-B / ZOWIE XL LCD. While other Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync monitors are broadly supported in recent NVIDIA drivers, that support is provided on a strictly 'as is' basis for now.

One eagerly-awaited update for Apex Legends players rolled into these drivers is a fix for the DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error in Apex Legends. This fix joins others for G-Sync monitors running in Clone Mode, crash to desktop errors when playing Star Citizen with an NVIDIA Turing GPU, and high CPU usage for NVDisplay.Container.exe (among others).

The drivers can be downloaded directly from geforce.com/drivers, or via the GeForce Experience desktop app. Graphics cards from the GTX 600-series (Kepler architecture) are compatible with these drivers, but note that support for 32-bit operating systems is not offered in NVIDIA's current driver stack.
