NVIDIA has released a new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 391.01 WHQL driver is optimized for Sea of Thieves. In addition, this driver fixes an issue that prevented the NVIDIA Freestyle being enabled for supported games and some display flickers continuously after disabling and enabling the GPU using Device Manager, or when rebooting the system in Volta GPUs.
Moreover, this driver resolves some flickering/corruption issues that occurred when opening the in-game options UI in Rise of the Tomb Raider, some system stutter issues when opening Media Player Classic, and some driver TDR errors when using the Firefox browser.
