NVIDIA Hotfix 375.76 Resolves High-Refresh Display Flickering

By Published November 04, 2016 at 5:39 pm

NVidia's most recent round of drivers exhibited a few issues for Windows 10 mail application users -- something we didn't see, since we don't use those apps on our test platform -- and for high-refresh display users. These bugs cropped-up around the time of the Battlefield 1 release drivers, but have largely been resolved in the last couple of hotfixes.

Now, with 375.76, nVidia believes it has resolved flickering on high-refresh rate displays and GIF artifacting. The driver update includes expected optimizations for Obduction, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare (just released), Modern Warfare Remastered, Skyrim Special Edition, and Dishonored 2. Titanfall 2 performance optimizations are also available.

If you've already got a recent driver package (like 375.70) and are happy with it, the flickering issues likely did not apply to your monitor and the drivers could be left alone. That said, like we commented in our AMD driver news update yesterday, GN does generally recommend keeping drivers updated.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
