NVIDIA GeForce 359.00 WHQL Driver Released
John Williamson / 3 years ago
NVIDIA has promised to release regular ‘Game Ready’ driver updates for the latest games to provide a launch-day optimized experience. The 359.00 driver is essential to play Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate and the Overwatch: Beta at optimal settings. NVIDIA also included a number of SLI profiles to properly utilize dual GPU configurations. Here is a complete rundown of the latest driver:
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate and Overwatch: Beta.
GameWorks VR 1.0 Support
Driver support for GameWorks VR 1.0, including Multi-Res shading and Windows 10
Application SLI Profiles
Added or updated the following SLI profiles:
• Guild Wars 2 – 64-bit EXE added
• Overlord: Fellowship of Evil – DX11 SLI profile added
• Total War: Attila – SLI disabled
• War Thunder – 64-bit EXE added
3D Vision Profiles
No 3D Vision profiles were added with this release.
• NView – version 146.78
• HD Audio Driver – version 126.96.36.199
• NVIDIA PhysX System Software – version 9.15.0428
• GeForce Experience – version 188.8.131.52
• CUDA – version 7.5
At the time of writing, it’s quite difficult to navigate to the 359.00 driver as GeForce Experience and NVIDIA’s download page only grant access to the older 358.91 driver. Strangely enough, the driver can be downloaded from NVIDIA’s Latin America servers without any problems. I’m sure this is just a small delivery bug and should be available through GeForce Experience very soon.
