NVIDIA Driver GeForce 361.43 Released

Alessio Palumbo

A new NVIDIA driver is now available for everyone to download and install, either via GeForce Experience or the official website. This is the GeForce 361.43 WHQL release, though it's less exciting than your usual GameReady driver: it's late December now and with no game releases in sight, there's no big optimization for games.

Still, here's the official changelog of the latest NVIDIA driver.

NVIDIA continues to work closely with VR headset and game developers to deliver amazing VR games and applications. This Game Ready driver includes the latest GameWorks VR tweaks, bug fixes, and optimizations to ensure you have the ultimate VR gaming experience.

Fermi GPU Changes

As of Windows 10 November Update, Fermi GPUs now use WDDM 2.0 in single GPU configurations.
For multi-GPU configurations, WDDM usage is as follows:
In non-SLI multi-GPU configurations, Fermi GPUs use WDDM 2.0. This includes configurations where a Fermi GPU is used with Kepler or Maxwell GPUs.
In SLI mode, Fermi GPUs still use WDDM 1.3.

The next major NVIDIA driver release will probably hit between late January and early February 2016, when many games are scheduled to be launched on PC.
