NVIDIA Releases 376.19 WHQL Driver Update: Game Ready Oculus Touch and Two Giveawaysby Daniel Williams on December 6, 2016 4:10 AM EST
This week we are finally seeing the long-awaited release of the Oculus touch controllers and the collection of games following in its wake. As a result, we also seem to get another NVIDIA driver as well. This is a minor update with a small handful of bug fixes, but still continuing driver release 375.
Fixes this week are that NVIDIA has resolved an issue where No Mans Sky showed severe texture corruption under Foundation Update 1.10 with SLI enabled. We also have fixes in for Notebook G-SYNC for a flickering issue and an issue with the G-SYNC pendulum demo.
Driving home this update we are given game ready support for Oculus Touch launch titles. This list Includes but is not limited to NVIDIA’s VR Funhouse, SuperHOT VR and Ripcoil. To celebrate the release of Oculus Touch, NVIDIA is also hosting two separate giveaways. For giveaway #1, starting Tuesday December 6th and running until Friday December 9th, NVIDIA will be giving away one GeForce GTX 1080 every day along with game codes for Oculus Touch titles. On top of this they will be giving away one custom PC, complete with an Oculus Rift and Touch controllers on Friday December 9th to one grand prize winner. Entering in this giveaway requires leaving a comment on the NVIDIA GeForce Facebook or Twitter channels from December 6th to December 9th with the hashtag #VRReady and tagging @NVIDIAGeForce and @Oculus in your comment, with winners chosen at random.
For the second giveaway, NVIDIA is giving away 10 Oculus Rift bundles, which include the Oculus Rift headset, Oculus Touch controllers and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070. Entering for this giveaway simply requires contestants to download and login to the latest GeForce Experience by December 30th to be automatically entered to win, with winners chosen at random.
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 376.19 release notes

close - Wednesday, December 7, 2016 - linkI played the game after launch and it took ~30 minutes until I realized there's nothing more to it, that's the whole gameplay. At this point probably no update can bring me back to *that*.
sudhirkhanger - Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - linkWhat does 376.19 mean? When WHQL release is made are they also used on Linux or do Linux updates have their own release names.
Charlie22911 - Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - linkAnd still no fix for Folding@Home, 373.xx remains the latest functional driver for those who are folding against Toms Hardware.
Freakie - Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - linkI somehow got it to work yesterday on 375.50 drivers with my 1080, but then I tried overclocking my GPU to get some more PPD and it failed the Work Unit in F@H and I haven't been able to recreate it since. But when it was working it got ~650,000 PPD. So far the best I've been able to reliably manage on drivers that aren't 373 is 2000 PPD.
Still fiddling with it, though.
Freakie - Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - linkHA! Got it to work again, though this time with these latest 376.19 drivers. Now to see if I can break it again and reproduce the fix.
Charlie22911 - Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - linkIf you get it to work let me know! Your PPD seems low, I'm currently pulling around 800k-950k depending on WU on each of my 1080s (2114MHz watercooled); I know the overclock helps but I wouldn't think by that much...
Freakie - Wednesday, December 7, 2016 - linkBleh, it worked for 1 Work Unit and then broke again. So no dice on getting it working to a reasonable degree, sorry :( I got ~770k PPD this time though! So I got that going for me, which is nice.

Freakie - Wednesday, December 7, 2016 - linkI'm sorry but... what???
