NVIDIA has just released the latest batch of experimental GeForce 376.33 WHQL drivers, trading off optimizations with some problems, crashes, and more.


The GeForce 376.33 WHQL drivers have some notable problems including disabling SLI in Titanfall 2, Dead Rising 4 crashing if launched with Low or Medium settings and Gears of War 4 level loading hanging on GeForce GTX 970M laptops. Fixes include Oculus Touch VR optimizations, cleaning up the corruption when two or more YouTube videos are played back simultaneously on Chrome and a few others.

Before you download the GeForce 376.33 WHQL drivers here, be sure to backup your system and run DDU for a fresh clean install.
