GeForce Game Ready 511.32 WHQL known issues

Thanks to the latest release of the drivers which you can see here, these drivers are certainly not without fault, and Nvidia has published the known issues for this latest driver update, and you can see them here. But, we’ve also included them below so you don’t have to trawl through esoteric documents and instead just get all the information that you absolutely need to see if you are going to be affected by any of these issues.

  • Windows 11 & Far Cry 6: Geometric corruption occurs in the benchmark and in gameplay.
  • NVIDIA Ampere GPUs: With the GPU connected to an HDMI 2.1 audio/video receiver, audio may drop out when playing back Dolby Atmos.
  • Deathloop & HDR : TDR/corruption occurs in the game with Windows HDR enabled.
    If this issue occurs, toggle the Windows HDR setting.
  • Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed may crash on courses where players drive through water.
  • NVIDIA Control Panel: After setting the display multiplexer type to “dGPU”, the setting is not preserved across a reboot or resume from S4.
  • NVIDIA Image Scaling: The screen moves to the upper left corner on cold boot when Image Scaling is applied to the desktop. Do not apply NVIDIA Image Scaling to the desktop. It is intended only for video upscaling or for games which do not run with a scaling resolution unless the same Image Scaling resolution is applied on the desktop.
  • NVIDIA Image Scaling in DirectX 11 video apps: With Image Scaling enabled, video playback is corrupted or results in a system hang after performing an HDR transition.

    If HDR is required to be toggled from the Microsoft Control Panel, be sure to switch to a different Image Scaling resolution.
