NVIDIA GeForce Hotfix Driver 397.55 released, fixes GTX1060 crashing issues

Last month, NVIDIA released a new driver for its graphics card, the NVIDIA GeForce 397.31 WHQL. Among other things, that driver came with a developer preview for NVIDIA RTX ray tracing technology for DirectX 12, as well as official support for Vulkan 1.1. However, it was reported that this driver introduced some crashing issues in systems equipped with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX1060 graphics card. And thankfully, the green team released a new hotfix that addresses these issues.

According to its changelog, the NVIDIA GeForce Hotfix Driver 397.55 resolves the Code 43 error reports that some users were receiving on a few GTX 1060 cards models, fixes the occasional stutter issues with Netflix playback, adds support for Microsoft Surface Book notebooks and fixes a bug that could remove the driver after the PC has been left idle for an extended period of time.

Those interested can download the hotfix from here.
