GeForce 461.81 Hotfix: Nvidia fixes problems with the current graphics driver


With the GeForce 461.81 hotfix, Nvidia resolves numerous problems with the current graphics driver GeForce 461.72 WHQL, which for the first time ever enabled full access to the graphics memory of the GeForce RTX 3060 (test) using Resizable BAR. The GeForce GTX 1660 Super (test) and the Vulkan API also benefit.

Nvidia makes hotfix drivers a tradition

The hotfix driver is now a good thing every time a current GRD driver is released. In the last two and a half months alone, Nvidia had the three drivers GeForce 460.97 Hotfix, GeForce 461.33 Hotfix and GeForce 461.51 Hotfix follow the current regular release. This time, too, the manufacturer cannot avoid correcting numerous errors in the current driver.

Fortnite, Vulkan and Nvidia Surround benefit

In addition to corrections for the large and opulent open world of Red Dead Redemption 2 (test) in connection with the free low-level API Vulkan and optimizations of the shader cache in Fortnite (benchmark), the two games Rocket League and Detroit: Become Human also benefit from the new graphics driver.

In addition, Nvidia Surround should now also work properly on 4K TVs via HDMI 2.1. Nvidia has also fixed occasional dropouts when moving applications on the Windows desktop.

The hotfix addresses the following issues:
  • [Fortnite] Shader cache optimizations to reduce intermittent stutter on some PC configurations [3244272]
  • [GeForce GTX 1660 Super]: Random flickering may appear across the top of the monitor on some PC configurations. [3184254]
  • [Vulkan] Red Dead Redemption 2 may display pixelated black dots [3266614]
  • Some desktop applications may stutter when moving around the window on some PC configurations [3252200]
  • Enabling NVIDIA Surround with 4K HDMI 2.1 TVs may fail [3184849]
  • [Rocket League] Matches may take longer to load [3244324]
  • [Detroit: Become Human] Game may crash when launched with Image Sharpening enabled [200667092]
