As the GeForce GTX 1070 approaches, NVIDIA has prepared a driver release for the upcoming card. Along with support to the coming GPU and a list of fixes, we are receiving game ready support for the brand new games Mirrors Edge Catalyst and Edge of Nowhere.

On the bugfix side of matters, NVIDIA has fixed a stuttering issue with Total War: Warhammer, though NVIDIA notes that Total War: Warhammer is still waiting for an SLI profile and that the game can still show corruption when playing with V-Sync enabled. Alongside Total War, a stuttering issue has been fixed for YouTube while watching in full-screen with Microsoft Edge, and Tom Clancy's the Division would stutter after 20-30 minutes of game play in SLI.

For the remaining fixed issues we have the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders edition spinning its fan up and down rapidly, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was launching to a white screen, and X-Legend Entertainment was reporting that Laplace failed to launch.

Finally, the game ready support NVIDIA has prepared for this round includes support for Mirror's Edge Catalyst by EA Dice and Edge of Nowhere, a VR Lovecraftian horror from Insomniac Games, both of which are seeing release this week. NVIDIA was eager to note how to get an optimal gaming experience with Mirror's Edge Catalyst in their report. Stating that a GTX 970 on High at 1080p, and a GTX 980 Ti on Ultra or a GTX 1080 on Hyper at 1440p will get a 60FPS average. NVIDIA also notes that they have identified a Mirror's Edge Catalyst DirectX crash issue in Windows 8.1 when SLI is enabled. They are working to rectify the issue for a future update.

Anyone interested can download the updated drivers through GeForce Experience or on the NVIDIA driver download page. More information on this update and further issues can be found in the 368.39 release notes.

    Over a year and no GTX 960 review...
    The reviews seem to be going extinct and we get a lot of product announcements instead. Oh well, it's not like Anandtech publishes what _we_ want. If we can't get out fix here, we'll get it elsewhere. But I'll surely miss the level of detail Anandtech usually goes into. I don't know any other sire that does that.

    I don't think it helps that it's 2016 and yet one still can't edit one's comments to fix typos, etc. Reply

    Yeah, I had been waiting on the GTX 960 review as well, which Ryan said was coming soon, but still is a no show. Reply

    I bought 980 because i got tired of waiting for 960 review. ^_^ Reply

    Yeah, but like everyone says, quality over quantity. That review (960) is going to be so good, it'll cover scents emitted from different manufacturers. You know, the important stuff. Reply

    The last GPU review was 7 months ago. Reply

    ... which was pretty pointless of me to state as the only new cards between then and recent times are the new 10s. Reply

    It's a good card.
    It fits right inbetween a GTX970 and GTX950Ti :D

    Just don't expect it to max out graphics settings at 1080p and I think you are good to go.

    So like... I haven't switched drivers since 362.00, because of all the quality control issues in 364.xx that caused extremely poor performance in quite a lot of games.

    Are the 368.xx drivers working fine to this regard?
