New Nvidia Geforce drivers fix a couple of Red Dead Redemption 2 Vulkan-related problems

Nvidia has rolled out a new set of drivers in anticipation of the release of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

The new Nvidia Geforce drivers, version 441.20, add support for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and VR shooter Stormland. The list of G-Sync Compatible displays has also been expanded to include the Acer XB273U, Acer XV273U and ASUS VG259Q.

The biggest news, however, is hidden in the drivers’ change log [PDF], revealing a couple of welcome fixes for Red Dead Redemption 2 players running the Vulkan API – likely what most players would be given it’s the default choice.

Players using a GTX 900 series GPU should no longer see geometry corruption on Vulkan. Another fix addresses a bug that would turn off G-Sync when V-Sync is disabled in Red Dead Redemption 2, also on Vulkan.

Read on below for the full set of fixes, and head over to the official Geforce portal to grab the new drivers.

  • Red Dead Redemption 2 – [Vulkan] [Maxwell GPUs]: Geometry corruption occurs on some GPUs.
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 – [Vulkan]: G-Sync disengages when disabling V-Sync on the game.
  • The Surge 2: VULKAN_ERROR_DEVICE_LOST when using driver version 440.97.
  • Quake 3 Arena: Colors in the game become washed out when set to 16-bit color.
  • HDR: HDR black levels are grey on LG OLED55C9.
  • CS:GO: The game experiences performance drops in certain CPU-limited cases.
