NVIDIA Releases GeForce 465.89 Game Ready Drivers with Resizable BAR

Resizable BAR finally here … and you can have it by using NVIDIA’s latest GeForce 465.89 Game Ready Drivers.

Taken from TPU .. NVIDIA today released the latest version of GeForce Software. Version 465.89 WHQL comes with optimization for “DiRT 5” update with raytracing support; “Outriders,” and “Evil Genius 2: World Domination.” More importantly, the drivers formally introduce Resizable BAR support for GeForce RTX 30-series “Ampere” desktop and mobile discrete GPUs. Priliminary (beta) support is also added for virtualization on GeForce GPUs. Other major changes include support for the new OpenCL 3.0 compute API, NVIDIA SLI support for “Shenmue III” and “The Medium” (on “Turing” GPUs only). Support for 8K TVs is improved by extending the DP-to-HDMI 2.1 PCON clock frequency range.

Among the handful issues fixed with 465.89 WHQL are pixellated smoke with “Rainbow 6 Siege” in Vulkan API mode; a crash with X4 on RTX 30-series; a BSOD when a Samsung Odyssey G9 display is paired with HDMI TV; a BSOD when playing games and watching YouTube videos simultaneously on an RTX 2060; “Sunset Overdrive” showing green display corruption with in-game DOF enabled; Realtek DP to HDMI 2.1 converters being limited to 600 MHz pixel clock, abnormal idle power draw on “Turing” and “Ampere” GPUs with higher refresh-rate G-SYNC monitors; and screenshots captured using GeForce Experience appearing washed out with HDR enabled.
