NVIDIA has released a new GeForce Hotfix display driver that tackles various issues present in the previous WHQL-certified Game Ready Driver release. GeForce Hotfix display driver version 461.81 addresses a stuttering issue in Fortnite, graphics anomalies in Red Dead Redemption 2, slow loading times in Rocket League, and crashing when Image Sharpening is enabled in Detroit: Become Human. The hotfix also deals with a problem whereby enabling NVIDIA Surround with 4K HDMI 2.1 TVs might fail.

“To be sure, these Hotfix drivers are beta, optional and provided as-is,” warned an NVIDIA employee on green team’s official forums. “They are run through a much abbreviated QA process. The sole reason they exist is to get fixes out to you more quickly. The safest option is to wait for the next WHQL certified driver. But we know that many of you are willing to try these out.”

“These HotFix drivers represent a lot of additional work by our engineering teams, I hope they provide value for you. We’ll try it out and see if people like the idea and want us to continue.”
