Nvidia has updated its GeForce Game Ready Drivers with expanded support for Electronic Art’s Battlefield 1 and 2K’s Civilization VI, enabling faster frame rates and improved performance for players on PC platforms.

Version 375.86 of Nvidia’s Game Ready Drivers also ensures consistent performance in Ubisoft’s upcoming Survival DLC for Tom Clancy’s The Division, giving GeForce owners a leg up on the post-apocalyptic competition.

The bulk of Nvidia’s latest additions to its Game Ready Drivers specifically target performance hiccups in EA’s World War I-era first-person shooter Battlefield 1. After installing the newest driver update, players will see fewer instances of visual smearing and ghosting, and previously reported desktop flickering issues should now be resolved.

Additional bugfixes present in version 375.86 of Nvidia’s Game Ready Drivers address crashes in games like For Honor and Gears of War 4. Players who reported severe flickering in Dishonored 2 should also see improved performance after updating their drivers, and GeForce users who run Street Fighter V in 4K should no longer see intermittent performance drops.

Other games that stand to benefit from Nvidia’s updated drivers include Quantum Break, Eagle Flight, and Assassins Creed: Syndicate.

The update also adds a temporal SLI profile for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, along with a 3D Vision Profile for Ubisoft’s upcoming mountain sports sim Steep. Nividia notes that 3D Vision support for Steep is still in its preliminary testing phases, pending the game’s final release. Players enrolled in Steep‘s open beta can get their first playable glimpse at the game starting on November 18.

Nvidia’s previous driver update offered similar fixes for the recently released PC versions of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, Obduction, and Titanfall 2. The full suite of updated drivers is available as a free download from Nvidia’s website.

We thought we'd seen the last of the problems with Nvidia's 12VHPWR connector used for the RTX 40-series. However, it seems that the issues are not over, and the latest incident is different in a major way.

While the previous cases of melting connectors all affected cables supplied by Nvidia, things are different this time around. A Reddit user reported that their custom CableMod connector has melted, undermining previous theories about the root of the problem.

Nvidia's upcoming mobile GPU range is on the way, and soon, laptops equipped with an RTX 4090 will be out in the wild. Unfortunately, they won't be cheap.

We've just spotted one such laptop, and the price is downright terrifying. If not for the portability factor of laptops, you might be better off just buying a desktop graphics card instead.

Nvidia RTX 4080 vs RTX 4070 Ti: picking the lesser of two evils
The RTX 4080 in a running test bench.

Nvidia's RTX 4080 has been out for a while, but the RTX 4070 Ti is a new release, and the circumstances around it are quite strange. At first, the GPU giant called this graphics card the "RTX 4080 12GB," but it was a version with significantly worse specifications than its counterpart. After some backlash, Nvidia "unlaunched" it, only to release it again a while later -- this time under the name of RTX 4070 Ti.

While the road it took to get here was unusual, the RTX 4070 Ti has now arrived, and we've tested both of these graphics cards ourselves. Let's see how they stack up against each other.
