NVIDIA GeForce 375.86 WHQL driver out, optimized for Battlefield 1, Steep: Open Beta & Civilization VI

NVIDIA has just released a new WHQL driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 375.86 WHQL driver is optimized for Tom Clancy’s The Division Survival DLC, Battlefield 1, Steep: Open Beta, and Civilization VI.

In addition, this driver adds a temporal SLI profile for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare.

Furthermore, this driver fixes the smearing and ghosting issues that have been reported with latest NVIDIA drivers, an issue that caused artifacts in GIFs, wrong memory usage values in games on Pascal GPUs in SLI mode, as well as some flickering issues on high-frequency monitors.

Those interested can download this new driver from here.

Pascal owners, be warned; according to various reports, there seems to be a memory clocking bug in this driver which prevents the Pascal cards to push VRAM clocks above 810MHz.
