KEY ISSUES FIXED:

– Black screen or app crash may happen when system kept idle with “turn off the display” and show the home page which uses JavaScript. Method to allocate and de-allocate memory was causing this issue. Driver optimizations fixed this.

– Slow transition from one page to another is seen when running a custom application. This issue was due to the application submitting large amounts of small workloads causing the performance degradation. Driver optimizations improve performance.

– Corruption seen during Fifa ’17 game play. Gfx 3D shader component had issues with rendering. Optimizations to redering code resolve this issue

– Missing text characters in the sentence. Issue is with display list concatenation. Corruptions occur when a display list with more than one draw call is encountered. This is now handled correctly from driver.

About Graphics Drivers:

While installing the graphics driver allows the system to properly recognize the chipset and the card manufacturer, updating the video driver can bring about various changes.

It can improve the overall graphics experience and performance in either games or various engineering software applications, include support for newly developed technologies, add compatibility with newer GPU chipsets, or resolve different problems that might have been encountered.

When it comes to applying this release, the installation steps should be a breeze, as each manufacturer tries to make them as easy as possible so that each user can update the GPU on their own and with minimum risks (however, check to see if this download supports your graphics chipset).

Therefore, get the package (extract it if necessary), run the setup, follow the on-screen instructions for a complete and successful installation, and make sure you reboot the system so that the changes take effect.

That being said, download the driver, apply it on your system, and enjoy your newly updated graphics card. Moreover, check with our website as often as possible in order to stay up to speed with the latest releases.
