Nvidia has released its newest Geforce 411.63 WHQL driver which is both the Game Ready driver for a couple of new games as well as an RTX Ready driver, bringing support for its latest RTX series graphics cards, which should be shipping to their first customers as of yesterday.

According to the release notes, the new Geforce 411.63 WHQL driver is likely to have all the optimizations for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Forza Horizon 4, and FIFA 19 games, as well as add support for Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti graphics cards, support for CUDA 10.0, and support for Nvidia RTX Technology.

In addition to the DXR APU support, it also provides full support for Vulkan 1.1 API, with new extensions for Turing GPUs, support for Vulkan HDR for windows. It also adds OpenGL extensions for Turing GPUs.

Nvidia Control Panel has also been updated to show Boost Clock values (instead of Base Clock) in the System Info for Turing GPUs, and the driver includes added or updated SLI profiles for HOB, Lake Ridden, NieR: Automata, Northgard, Pure Farmin 2018, Raid: World War II, Star Wars: Battlefront II, and TT Isle of Man. It also adds or updates 3D Vision profiles for Elder Scrolls: Online - Good, Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey - Not recommended.

As this is obviously a major update from Nvidia, it also includes a couple of fixed issues including one which causes micro stutter when using power monitoring in the GPU monitor tools, low frame rate fix for Monster Hunter World, fix for graphics corruption with Nvidia Gameworks in Tom Clancy's The Division, fix for G-Sync issues in Planetside 2, fix for 1x3 surround in Call of Duty WW II, fix for OpenGL driver crash in Archicad, and fix where secondary GPU doesn't render video content on fullscreen Youtube video.
