Nvidia releases GeForce 376.33 WHQL drivers

Still no a word on Battlefield 1 improvements

Following the launch of Oculus Touch with over 50 games made for VR, Nvidia releases a new driver which is - once more - supposed to improve performance, especially on all those new titles. Meanwhile we’re at version 376.33 regarding NVIDIA’s WHQL drivers. Apart from Oculus Touch support some Windows bugs have been addressed as well.

Nvidia has released their Geforce 376.33 Game Ready driver, which disables the unstable SLI profile on Titanfall 2. In addition - as tradition - Nvidia addressed several bugs on Windows 10 and Windows 7/8.1. Few weeks ago we have reported on a critical bug in Battlefield 1, which occurs in combination with GTX 700 series cards in particular on the the GTX 770. Although the game has been available for a few months already and Nvidia did uploaded several updates in the meantime, it appears that this DirectX error is still present.

Checking out the official thread on the NVIDIA forums we see that it’s 438 pages long. Apparently we’re hoping that the green division is finally going to do something about this.

As always, you can download the new GeForce 376.33 WHQL Game Ready drivers over at Nvidia's support page or automatically using the GeForce Experience software.
