NVIDIA Releases GeForce 436.15 WHQL Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today released the GeForce 436.15 WHQL drivers. These drivers come game-ready for the day’s big AAA game launch, “Control.” The drivers also introduces Video Codec SDK 9.1, the software-end of NVIDIA’s on-chip video transcoding hardware, which adds a new NVEncode API, support for CUStream in the NVEncode API, and bug-fixes to H.264 MVC encoding. The drivers also pack Optical Flow SDK 1.1. Among the application-specific bug-fixes are display corruption of tracks in “Forza Motorsport 7,” and system crashes observed when installing NVIDIA drivers on systems that have multiple graphics cards with mixed GPU architectures (eg: a system that has a “Maxwell” graphics card and a “Pascal” graphics card.). Grab the driver from the link below.
