Nvidia releases Geforce 391.35 Game Ready driver for Far Cry 5

Nvidia has released their new Geforce 391.35 WHQL driver, delivering “Game Ready” optimisations for Far Cry 5, SLI profiles for GRIP and WRC 7 and a total of seven CVE security fixes. 

These CVE fixes are primarily related to the kernel-mode layers of the driver and the user-mode levels of their DirectX and OpenGL drivers. Nvidia’s changes address issues where pixel shaders can cause infinite loops, which can be used for denial of service attacks. It is good to see Nvidia being so open about these changes. 

This driver also fixes a memory leak which affected Nvidia’s FreeStyle custom shading utility, preventing the tool from causing large dips in system performance. Nvidia has also addressed an issue which can cause Diablo 3 to free when using an SLI setup.  


What’s New in Version 391.35 WHQL

Game Ready Drivers provide the best possible gaming experience for all major new releases, including Virtual Reality games. Prior to a new title launching, our driver team is working up until the last minute to ensure every performance tweak and bug fix is included for the best gameplay on day one.
