Update: The driver was pulled. Nvidia writes:
After finding a critical installation issue, the team has replaced yesterday’s driver (364.47) with today’s new driver (364.51).
This driver has been submitted to Microsoft for WHQL-approval and we will update the driver package online as soon as we have the certified package.
We had received reports of some users having issues installing driver version 364.47. Initial investigation suggests the issue was related to doing an “Express” installation. If you happen to have a pending installatino of 364.47, we recommend that you do not install it and either use the new 364.51 beta version or wait for the WHQL certified version.
Two of the big PC game releases to arrive within the next week, The Division and Need for Speed, have received their own Nvidia Game Ready drivers. These driver are the GeForce Game Ready 364.47 WHQL drivers.
UbiSoft’s The Division has its own special PC version so this driver update has been released to make the best use of Nvidia’s Optimal Playable Settings, Game Ready drivers, NVIDIA GameWorks effects, and G-SYNC. Recommended cards for The Division are the GeForce GTX 970 and GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
Need for Speed is also a special version of the game with 4K visuals and an unlocked framerate.
While these are the two highlighted games in this driver release, this driver branch also now comes with support for the Vulcan graphics API.
The first Hitman instalment and the RTS Ashes of Singularity are also supported in this driver update.
The drivers are available now to download directly from Nvdia or by auto-updating through the GeForce Experience.
