New GEFORCE GAME READY DRIVER - v390.65 WHQL

New GEFORCE GAME READY DRIVER - v390.65 WHQL

Ansel and the Freestyle enhancements will become available on January 9 in the forthcoming 3.12 release of GeForce Experience and version 390 of its GeForce graphics drivers.

Also making its way into GeForce experience is a new Freestyle feature which brings a range of Instagram-style picture effects that can "change the look and mood of your game with tweaks to color or saturation, or apply dramatic post-process filters".

Nvidia Freestyle is part of GeForce Experience.

GeForce Experience is our companion application for GeForce GTX GPUs that helps keep your drivers up to date, optimize your game settings, and capture and share videos, screenshots and livestreams with friends.

Not all games are supported by Freestyle. Over 150 popular titles are included in the game compatibility list, though the Rockstar Games catalog appears to be missing.

You need to enable "Enable Experimental Features" in the GeForce Experience client after driver installation to enable the feature.

GeForce NOW may be Nvidia's entry into the cloud gaming market, but it will face some stiff competition from the likes of GameFly and PlayStation Now, especially since those services provide unique benefits, such as streaming games on to a smart television or streaming PlayStation exclusive games, respectively. It is always nice to have this feature for all games, and will undoubtedly come very soon. With new games getting added all the time. If I actually tried to play the game locally, it would be impossible as the game was barely rendering at all or at 2fps. After PUBG, Fortnite is the second BR game to receive Shadowplay Highlights support.

Moreover, this new driver adds a pop-up balloon to alert the user if an eGPU has been connected or disconnected.

[GeForce GTX 970][Batman Arkham Knight]: Surfaces are rendered incorrectly.

At launch there are a total of 15 filters with 38 different settings (some filters have multiple settings).

Issue: No display output when connecting Geforce GTX 780 Ti to the DisplayPort and two DVI monitors.

[GeForce TITAN (Kepler-based)]: The OS fails after installing the graphics card on a Threadripper enabled motherboard.

[Kepler GPUs][StarWars Battlefront II]: The system hangs when launching the game in DirectX 12 API mode.
