By - | Views: 7,856

The latest NVIDIA driver release 387.22 is now out. This is a stable driver release which builds upon the 387.12 beta driver that was released earlier this month.

Some highlights:

  • It brings in support for the new GTX 1070Ti card and more.
  • This release adds G-SYNC to all supported Vulkan swapchains for Maxwell and up and it also enables G-SYNC by default for G-SYNC-ready monitors.
  • A regression was fixed that could cause driver errors when setting modes that include DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport devices
  • Improved performance of fullscreen Vulkan applications using X11 swapchains.
  • Added an "AllowGSYNC" MetaMode attribute that can be used to disable G-SYNC completely.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause OpenGL applications to crash after a prolonged DPMS sleep state on a monitor driven with PRIME Sync.

You can download manually here, which also shows the full highlights of this release. The Ubuntu PPA has not yet been updated, hopefully it will be in the next few days.
