Nvidia Driver 398.11 adds new SLI profiles and optimal gaming experience for Vampyr and JWE

Despite the already known issues being deployed, one will remain intact, and that is World of Warcraft: Legion’s issue. However, Nvidia has proven to be working on the SLI technology as usual, and the already reported problems during the previous update have been addressed.

As expected, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 received an updated SLI profile while Hitman PRO on DirectX 12 will no longer crash if HDR is turned ON. As of Call of Duty: WWII, the center Surround is no longer blank during gameplay.

This update works on bringing improved gaming experience on HDR-capable G-Sync Displays, as well as optimal gameplay for Vampyr and Jurassic World Evolution. 398.11 is available to download through GeForce Experience or from the official Nvidia Download page. For detailed patch notes see the list below:

  • Game Ready – Provides the optimal gaming experience for Vampyr and Jurassic World Evolution.
