Along with the release of the GeForce RTX 2080 GPU series NVIDIA have put out a new 410.57 driver to support it. Additionally, there's a new Vulkan beta driver which should help DXVK.

What's new in the 410.57 driver?

  • Adds support for GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080 and some Tesla cards.
  • A new on-screen HUD to show which graphics API a game is using
  • Implemented support for Vulkan real-time ray tracing extensions
  • Various bug fixes

See the changelog for 410.57 here.

Then we also have the 396.54.06 Vulkan beta driver, this adds in support for two Vulkan extension:

On top of that though, it also includes a fix primarily aimed at issues running Windows games on Linux with DXVK. Specifically, an issue with a "z-fighting" corruption issue in multiple games. More info on that can be found in this bug report.

Really good to see NVIDIA also pushing out some good fixes for DXVK and Steam Play as well as supporting their newest GPUs right away.

Actually the PPA skipped 396.54.06 completely. Don't know why, not interested enough to ask. 396.54.09 on the other hand was added to the PPA with a delay of a single day, which should be good enough even for the impatient among us.
