With the new GeForce 462.07 hotfix, Nvidia once again solves problems with the current graphics driver GeForce 461.92 WHQL with graphics cards of the Ampere generation, such as the GeForce RTX 3080 (test), and the free low-level API Vulkan. However, users are already reporting new problems in the official support forum.
Hotfix fixes problems with Vulkan
After the last regular driver for Nvidia Reflex (test) was optimized in Overwatch (benchmark), the new GeForce 462.07 hotfix is once again a classic bugfix release that is supposed to correct existing errors. The hotfix driver is now part of good form after every GRD driver.
After Nvidia followed the GeForce 460.97 Hotfix, GeForce 461.33 Hotfix, GeForce 461.51 Hotfix and, most recently, the GeForce 461.81 Hotfix on the current GRD driver in quick succession, the latest hotfix only corrects a bug using the Vulkan API.
GeForce Hotfix display driver version 462.07 is based on our latest Game Ready Driver 461.92.
GeForce 462.07 Hotfix – Release Notes
Nvidia has published more information on the official blog. As usual, the changes mentioned should also be incorporated into the next regular release and the upcoming WHQL driver.
Users complain about other errors
Meanwhile, some users complain about new problems in Nvidia’s official support forum. The driver is said to lead to crashes of the Nvidia Reflex FPS limiter and to problems with the frame times in some games. What is the experience of the ComputerBase forum community with the current hotfix driver?
Download from ComputerBase or support

Nvidia itself does not publish hotfix drivers via the regular download dialog, but exclusively via support and officially runs it as a beta version.
The editorial team thanks community member “FLCL” for pointing this out.
