Nvidia GeForce HotFix Driver addresses Discord and V-Sync issues

Nvidia’s latest driver shipped with two major issues, and they are now fixed with a new hotfix

Nvidia’s GeForce 546.29 Game Ready driver launched with some major bugs. If you use Discord, users are facing strange colour issues while streaming, and users of V-Sync are observing unwanted stuttering. Thankfully, Nvidia has quickly addressed these issues with a new HotFix driver release called 546.31.

HotFix driver releases are not uncommon for Nvidia. Last month they released HotFix 546.08 to address performance issues in Alan Wake, and Windows 10 transparency issues.

With Discord being a commonly used app amongst PC gamers, and V-Sync being a setting that is available in almost every game, this HotFix release is a hugely embarrassing one for Nvidia. Nvidia’s internal testing did not find these issues, despite the fact that Nvidia takes video streaming very seriously, and that V-Sync is an incredibly important option for many PC gamers.
