NVIDIA GeForce 418.91 WHQL available for download, does not fix DLSS blurriness in Battlefield 5 & Metro Exodus

NVIDIA has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 418.91 WHQL provides the optimal gaming experience when using DLSS and Ray Tracing in Battlefield V and Metro Exodus.

However, we can confirm that this driver does not resolve the blurry side-effects that PC gamers experience in both of the aforementioned titles when DLSS is enabled. As such, we strongly suggest avoiding DLSS until (and if) NVIDIA fixes the image downgrade-ation that is currently happening.

The NVIDIA GeForce 418.91 WHQL driver also fixes some lines appearing in the terrain with NVIDIA Control Panel Anisotropic filtering override enabled in Battlefield 5 and an event ID 14 error in event viewer logs when Digital Vibrance setting is changed on the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series.

Unfortunately, this driver does not resolve the DXGI_ERROR_DEVICE_HUNG error message that a lot of NVIDIA gamers have been receiving in APEX Legends (for now, we strongly suggest using the 417.71 driver if you are playing Respawn’s free to play battle royale title).

Those interested can download this new driver from here, and below you can find its complete changelog.
