NVIDIA, first driver for Windows 11 available


NVIDIA has released version 471.41 of its GeForce Game Ready driver, the first WHQL certified that also supports the Windows 11 operating system. In addition to this, this driver introduces several optimizations for the implementation of DLSS technology in Red Dead Redemption 2 and Chernobylite. NVIDIA makes some of the best video cards, and regular driver updates help ensure your system continues to run smoothly.

Credit: NVIDIA Windows 11 support is definitely the biggest new feature of this update, enabling to all those who have installed the current Developer Preview to install an official graphics driver that supports NVIDIA GPUs and which will hopefully reduce the number of problems encountered.

In addition to that, the driver also adds a couple of new G-Sync compatible monitors: Samsung LS28AG700N 4K 144Hz and Samsung LC27G50A 1440P 144Hz. Finally, the usual bug fixes could not be missing:

Hardware acceleration works again on Capture One. Disabled the NoHud / RemovalHud filter from Valorant. Doom Eternal should no longer crash during gameplay. League of Legends should no longer have problems starting up. The mouse cursor should no longer change color when connected to certain DSC monitors with HDR. The Ansel DOF filter should no longer blur the entire screen in some games. Some displays should no longer be limited to 640 × 480 resolution after updating drivers. 8K HDMI audio playback should no longer be distorted when switching display modes. Connecting to the PC in Remote Desktop mode with 10-bit color depth should no longer corrupt the image. GPU HDMI audio dropouts should no longer occur when connected to LG's C9 OLED TV. Red Dead Redemption 2 (2018) It's been about a month since NVIDIA's last driver update (471.11), but there haven't been many major games launched in recent times and we expect the frequency to rise again in a month or two. . Hopefully by then we will also have a greater availability of graphics cards.

If you are looking for a good motherboard for your new configuration, enough for AMD Ryzen processors, on Amazon you will find the Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE at an attractive price .

Nvidia Shares Move Higher Ahead of Four-For-One Stock Split Debut

Nvidia moved lowerTuesday as shares in the markets hottest chipmaker are set to begin trading on a split-adjusted basis following a spring decision to make them more accessible to individual investors and company employees.


Nvidia told investors in late May that it would execute a four-for-one stock split starting on July 20, a plan that included shareholders of record on June 21 pocketing a 'dividend' of three additional shares after the close of trading last night. Essentially this would alter the composition of an investor's holding from one share at $750 each to four at $187.80 each, but make no change to the Santa Clara, California-based chipmaker's market value, which remains at around $117 billion.

Nvidia shares were marked 1.3% lower from their split-adjusted close in early trading Tuesday to change hands at $185.43 each.

Nvidia shares have gained around 52% so far this year, thanks in part to market share wins in gaming and cryptocurrency mining and its ongoing advances in artificial intelligence and data center chips. Intel shares, by comparison, have gained just 9.7% so far this year while Advance Micro Devices is down 5.6% and Micron Technology is down 0.8%.

Earlier this spring, Nvidia said revenue from chips used for gaming, which comprise around half of its overall total, rose 106% from last year to $2.76 billion, while sales of its CMP product line - which is only used by cryptocurrency miners - came in at $155 million. Data center revenue was up 79% from last year to $2.05 billion, Nvidia said.

Nvidia said current quarter sales should rise to $6.3 billion, with around $400 million from its CMP product line -- which is only used by cryptocurrency miners -- and more increases from gaming sales, adding it also plans to make headway in its planned acquisition of fellow semiconductor company Arm Ltd, which is facing scrutiny both in the U.S. and abroad.
