NVIDIA has released a new hotfix driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce Hotfix 416.64 fixes some flickering issues during gameplay in Far Cry 5 and The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, as well as some corruption issues when Volume Rendering Quality is set to highest in Monster Hunter World.
Furthermore, this driver improves game stability in Shadow of the Tomb Raider and allows audio receiver to switch from multi-channel to stereo when audio playback is paused and it increases period from 5 seconds to 10 seconds.
Do note, however, that Windows 8.1 64bit are not supporting for Turing cards. As NVIDIA noted, Windows 8.1 x64 is not supported on Turing graphics cards including the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070. Ironically, the older OS, Windows 7 64-bit, is supported.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
