What’s New in Version 451.67 WHQL

GeForce Game Ready Driver

Game Ready Drivers provide the best possible gaming experience for all major new releases. Prior to a new title launching, our driver team is working up until the last minute to ensure every performance tweak and bug fix is included for the best gameplay on day-1.

Game Ready for Death Stranding

This new Game Ready Driver provides the latest performance optimizations, profiles, and bug fixes for Death Stranding. In addition, this release also provides optimal support for Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition and F1 2020.

  • Supports DirectX 12 Ultimate
  • Supports Vulkan 1.2
  • Supports hardware-accelerated GPU Scheduling.
  • Supports CUDA 11.0.
  • Added security updates for driver components. –Version 451.48 introduced security updates for driver components.

Application Profiles

  • DCL – The Game (NVIDIA Turing GPUs and later)
  • Jiu Xiao

Experimental OpenCL 2.0 Features

Device side enqueue:

  • The current implementation is limited to 64-bit platforms only.
  • OpenCL 2.0 allows kernels to be enqueued with global_work_size larger than the compute capability of the NVIDIA GPU. The current implementation supports only combinations of global_work_size and local_work_size that are within the compute capability of the NVIDIA GPU. The maximum supported CUDA grid and block size of NVIDIA GPUs is available at http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-c-programming-guide/index.html#compute-capabilities. For a given grid dimension, the global_work_size can be determined by CUDA grid size x CUDA block size.
  • For executing kernels (whether from the host or the device), OpenCL 2.0 supports non-uniform ND-ranges where global_work_size does not need to be divisible by the local_work_size. This capability is not yet supported in the NVIDIA driver, and therefore not supported for device side kernel enqueues.

Shared virtual memory:

  • The current implementation of shared virtual memory is limited to 64-bit platforms only.

Open Issues in Version 451.67 WHQL

Windows 7 Issues

Windows 10 Issues

  • [Mechwarrior 5 DirectX 12]: The game crashes randomly with TDR and “Video driver crashed and was reset” error. [200634109]
  • [Shadow of the Tomb Raider][DirectX 12]: The game may crash when launched if Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling is enabled. [3037544]–To workaound, disable Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling.
  • [Horizon Zero Dawn Complete][DirectX 12]: Colored corruption occurs during the game-load menu if Image Sharpening is enabled. [200633655]

  • [Sunset Overdrive]: The game may display random green corruption if Depth of Field is enabled from in-game settings. [2750770]
  • [VR}: HDCP errors occur with Valve Index VR. [2967616]
  • [Call of Duty: Modern Warfare]: Color banding can occur in the game after enabling Image Sharpening from the NVIDIA Control Panel. [2889337/3028436]
  • [Call of Duty – Warzone]: Freestyle does not work. (200593020)

Issues Not Caused by NVIDIA Drivers

Operating System Issues

  • [Windows 10 Fall Creators Update][HDTV]: 12 bpc is automatically applied even on HDTVs that support only 8 bpc, resulting in a scrambled display. [2007663]To work around, open the NVIDIA Control Panel->Change Resolution page, select “Use NVIDIA color settings”, then set the Output color depth to 8 bpc.
  • When upgrading from Windows 7 to Windows 8, the system fails to retrieve the installed WHQL display driver. [1024416]
