Nvidia Graphics Driver 388.00: new features and issues

Nvidia released the new Nvidia Graphics Driver 388.00 WHQL to the public with game ready profiles for Destiny 2 and Assassin's Creed Origins.

The new graphics driver is available on Nvidia's driver download page as a standalone download, and also via the company's GeForce Experience service.

We recommend that you remove the old graphics driver completely, and that you install only the Nvidia drivers that you require. You can install the Nvidia graphics driver manually, and may want to disable Nvidia Telemetry services after installation.

    This update would not install on my computer after two tries. The system had to be restored to get by the previous driver that it uninstalled and left a blank screen.

      MS btw didn’t screw up anything here and the crying about each update is ridiculous stupid, the thing is that the OS gets more and faster changes and you simply can’t code software without bugs, especially not for 1 billion user. There is no software which is bug free.

    “…external displays on notebook’s….”
    Martin, you should not use an apostrophe in a plural. It’s for contractions or (most) possessives.
