NVIDIA has announced the release of its latest hotfix driver 416.64 which addresses primarily fixes to certain games such as Far Cry 5 and others. According to NVIDIA this is GeForce HotFix driver version 416.64 that addresses the following:
- Far Cry 5: Flicker during gameplay
- Monster Hunter World: Corruption is seen when Volume Rendering Quality is set to highest
- The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Flicker during gameplay
- Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Improves game stability
- When audio playback is paused, audio receiver switches from multi-channel to stereo. Increased period from 5 seconds to 10 seconds.
Other than that, we don’t have a lot of other details to share as there wasn’t formal release documentaion. More information can be found on NVIDIA’s GeForce forums post highlighting the release.
Since NVIDIA’ s drivers are massively complex and require a lot of time an resources to release. Hotfix drivers allow for quicker release to address issues more quickly. More information about Hot fix drivers:
A GeForce driver is an incredibly complex piece of software, We have an army of software engineers constantly adding features and fixing bugs. These changes are checked into the main driver branches, which are eventually run through a massive QA process and released.
The GeForce Hotfix driver is our way to trying to get some of these fixes out to you more quickly. These drivers are basically the same as the previous released version, with a small number of additional targeted fixes. The fixes that make it in are based in part on your feedback in the Driver Feedback threads and partly on how realistic it is for us to quickly address them. These fixes (and many more) will be incorporated into the next official driver release, at which time the Hotfix driver will be taken down.
