Nvidia GeForce 398.36 is now available to download. The new driver serves for better optimization of The Crew 2, the open-world racing game developed by Ubisoft. Furthermore, this update adds multiple other SLI profiles for different games such as Dark Souls Remastered, Hand of Fate 2, Need For Speed Payback, and Super Mega Baseball 2.
However, some of the already known issues in the previous update remain intact, which means some players will have to wait a bit more to deal with these problems. Mainly, most of the issues are around SLI and HDR, and as such will probably result in a late fix.
Nvidia’s 398.36 driver is available to download either through GeForce Experience or get it from the official website.
