Nvidia released a new driver for its GeForce video cards today that introduces official support for Windows 10 version 1809 which Microsoft released on October 2, 2018.

Some users who upgraded earlier versions of Windows 10 to the latest reported issues that they experienced during and after the upgrade. Reports indicate that personal files may be deleted for some users and that there are also some graphics related issues that users experience.

The new video card driver for Nvidia cards may resolve some of the graphics related issues that users experience after the upgrade to Windows 10 version 1809. Users who upgraded to the new version of Windows 10 already may want to update their devices to the new Nvidia driver if they experience issues after the upgrade that are graphics related.

The updated driver is available as a standalone download on the Nvidia GeForce website and also as part of GeForce Experience's automatic update mechanism.

The driver introduces support for the October 2018 Update for Windows 10 that Microsoft released on October 2, 2018; this includes support for DirectX Raytracing (DXR).

Microsoft introduced support for DirectX Raytracing in the October 2018 Update for Windows 10 promising that it would deliver support for a "new class of real-time graphics techniques".

The new graphics feature works out of the box on hardware that supports it according to Microsoft, and games that make use of it are not far away either.

Nvidia's GeForce 416.16 driver fixes the following issues:

  • Black square glitches in Quake HD Remix with soft shadows enabled.
  • Performance drop in Rainbow 6: Siege with temporal antialiasing.
  • Driver error nvlddmkm on resume from S4.
  • Missing 4K bitrate playback resolution when using USB-C HDMI connections.

The following issues are still open in the driver:

  • Mouse cursor shows brief corruption when hovering over links in Firefox.
  • Two Surround related issues with Windows Defender Application Guard and Microsoft Edge.
  • AV Receiver switches to 2-channel stereo mode after 5 seconds of idle.
  • DPC watchdog violation errors when using multiple GPUs on motherboards with PLX chips.
  • Crash of Windows Media Player under certain circumstances.

The new driver adds or updates profiles for the following games:

  • Basingstocke
  • Battlefield V
  • Divinity: Original Sin II
  • Immortal: Unchained
  • Jurassic World Evolution
  • Phoenix Point
  • Seven: The days Long Gone
  • Elder Scrolls: Online (3D Vision)
  • Assassin's Creed: Odyssey (3D Vision)

Tip: use NVSlimmer to install only the Nvidia driver components that you require or use a manual method to do this instead. As always, make sure you block the installation of Telemetry as good as you can during installation and disable Telemetry that Nvidia installs afterward if something slipped by.

Now You: Do you use Nvidia cards? What's your experience with these devices?

    Ghacks.net used to be a useful, and interesting blog….

    But since some time, Shaun is publishing papers that are more or less (and very often are ONLY) advertising for Microsoft.
    Today, he give us a new kind of paper that don’t hesitate to be outrageously erroneous !

    How can you write “The startup folder is important as it lists all the apps that run when your computer starts.” : This is completely false !

    These folders may, sometimes (but less and less) list some apps that run at startup, but MOST OF THEM (the apps that run at startup) are not set there, but rather in various registry keys, like HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, HKLMSOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run and several other ones

    If really you want to write something about this kind of subject, you’d better to talk about a soft like Sysinternals Autorun. Since it is a soft owned by Msoft, it would follow your recent policy of “MSoft advertising”, but, at least, it wouldn’t lead your users in error…

    I think I’ll soon stop to review this web blog, that we can now call a “shit blog” !

      You are correct.
      Both Startup folders are mainly empty.

      You can see list of startup apps in Task Manager.

    Actually, this paper is bullshit from its first words….

    “After the launch of Windows 10, the startup folder from the start menu was moved so that it is out of the spotlight.”…

    Once again, how can you write such bullshit ?!!! : It was already exactly at the SAME place in Win 7

    It was even in similar place in XP, and (if my memory is good) in Win95 / Win98

    Learn to read. The heading says ‘the … startup folder’, not startup locations.

      I know to read.
      I know very well that the paper says about the “startup folder” and not the the “startup locations”, and it is the main problem, since it says “the startup folder is important as it lists all the apps that run when your computer starts.”

      Before making a lesson to others, learn to read yourself ;-)

    I join the chorus – the Shaun-sourced articles I’ve read aren’t fit to line a birdcage.

    Regarding my Startup folder: key ‘startup’ in the taskbar search field. The response offers you a chance to open a folder called Startup Apps. That includes simple/obvious checkbox controls for managing the apps list, including 3 ways to reorganize how the list is displayed. BTW I too found just 2 or 3 entries using Shaun’s method, but several dozen using mine.

    Wow – while I agree that this was not quiet to the level I would expect, I would also say that the vitriol in the other comments is pretty harsh. This was not my need and was written well below what I would consider to be a value to me, but I am not going to sink to the level of social media posts these days and just destroy the author because I think it may be below the level of what I would find interesting.

    Remember if you get offended or dont like someone’s post you are indeed free to move on.

    That being said, this does indeed fall short of giving the reader a comprehensive answer to how to find what’s being started and where. This does address the question of how to use the shell command to see the contents of two rarely used folders.

    BUT I don’t know if this was the assignment or the authors choice to go this deep. (just my opinion :-))
