NVIDIA GeForce 442.74 WHQL driver available for download, packs bug fixes for Doom Eternal & RDR2

NVIDIA has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to its description, the NVIDIA GeForce 442.74 WHQL driver provides the latest performance optimizations, profiles, and bug fixes for DOOM Eternal.

Furthermore, this driver fixes a black screen after switching windows with alt+tab in Red Dead Redemption 2.

Now while this is a Game Ready driver for Doom Eternal, the game still suffers from some issues. For instance, players can experience corruption issues in the game upon opening the Steam overlay. Players can also encounter error issues while capturing Super Resolution (AI Upres) Image with Ansel. Not only that, but there can be frame rate drops when using the Steam in-game FPS counter, so avoid it. Lastly, the game flickers when OS HDR is set to OFF and in-game HDR is set to ON.

Moreover, Call of Duty: Warzone still suffers from some bugs and issues. For example, Freestyle does not work in Windows 10. In addition, the game may display white flashes when player approaches a wall in Windows 10.

But anyway, apart from the aforementioned fixes and performance optimizations, this new driver does not bring anything new to the table. Therefore, and if you are not playing these two games, you can safely skip it.

Have fun!
