NVIDIA GeForce 382.53 WHQL driver released, optimized for DiRT 4 & Nex Machina

NVIDIA has released a new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 382.53 WHQL driver offers optimal performance for DiRT 4 & Nex Machina.

This driver also updates and adds SLI profiles for Bulletstorm: Full Clip Edition, Little Nightmares, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Transformers Online.

Furthermore, this driver addresses an issue with DX11 games. As the changelog reads, on some titles, in-game V-Sync does not work if Fast Sync is selected from the NVIDIA Control Panel. Consequently, the game frame rate is not locked to the maximum refresh rate, resulting in possible tearing.
