Nvidia’s Geforce 398.86 Hotfix Driver addresses Windowed G-Sync issues 

Some of Nvidia’s users have been having problems with their G-Sync monitors, with Windows 10’s April 2018 update causing “Windowed G-Sync mode” to stutter, eliminating one of the primary benefits of G-Sync technology. 

Thankfully Nvidia has been working on the issue, today releasing their Geforce 398.86 Hotfix driver, which contains all of the benefits of the company’s recently released Geforce 398.82 WHQL driver alongside a fix for Windows 10’s “Windowed G-Sync” issues. 

This driver is exclusive to Windows 10 users because the Hotfix is designed to mitigate a Windows 10-only bug. Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users should continue using Nvidia’s Geforce 382.82 WHQL driver.
