Nvidia have released a new set of drivers, 385.41, in pre-emptive support of the upcoming Destiny 2 PC beta. The drivers also have additional support for F1 2017, ARK, and PES 2018.

    The Destiny 2 beta begins through Blizzard’s Battle.net platform on 28 August (if you pre-ordered the game) and on 29 August for everybody else. It ends on 31 August.

    It hasn’t been long since the previous set of Nvidia drivers, so the list of fixes is pretty brief. GTX 970s should have fewer problems with dropped frames in Quantum Break with 385.41. See below for the driver release notes, which include details of new SLI and ‘Whisper Mode’ profiles.
