NVIDIA has released an update to the GeForce Hotfix Driver 551.46, which fixes problems with microfreezes in games with vertical sync, freezes when scrolling in browsers, problems in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Immortals of Aveum.
The GeForce Hotfix Driver Version 551.46 update is based on the GeForce Game Ready Driver 551.23.
List of issues that the update fixes:
- some users may experience intermittent microfreezes in games when vertical sync is enabled;
- potential freezes may be observed when scrolling in web browsers on some system configurations;
- Some laptops equipped with Advanced Optimus support may experience stuttering in Red Dead Redemption 2 when using Vulkan;
- The update fixes stability issues during long gameplay in the game Immortals of Aveum.
It is noted that the driver has not received a WHQL certificate and is not recommended for all users, but only for those who have problems with microfreezes.
“The specified driver has undergone a simplified quality assessment process. The main goal of this software is to fix errors as quickly as possible. The safest option is to wait for the next WHQL certified driver. However, we know that many of you are ready to try the current solution.”says NVIDIA in the description of this update.
