As the GeForce GTX 1070 approaches, NVIDIA has prepared a driver release for the upcoming card. Along with support to the coming GPU and a list of fixes, we are receiving game ready support for the brand new games Mirrors Edge Catalyst and Edge of Nowhere.

On the bugfix side of matters, NVIDIA has fixed a stuttering issue with Total War: Warhammer, though NVIDIA notes that Total War: Warhammer is still waiting for an SLI profile and that the game can still show corruption when playing with V-Sync enabled. Alongside Total War, a stuttering issue has been fixed for YouTube while watching in full-screen with Microsoft Edge, and Tom Clancy's the Division would stutter after 20-30 minutes of game play in SLI.

For the remaining fixed issues we have the GeForce GTX 1080 Founders edition spinning its fan up and down rapidly, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was launching to a white screen, and X-Legend Entertainment was reporting that Laplace failed to launch.

Finally, the game ready support NVIDIA has prepared for this round includes support for Mirror's Edge Catalyst by EA Dice and Edge of Nowhere, a VR Lovecraftian horror from Insomniac Games, both of which are seeing release this week. NVIDIA was eager to note how to get an optimal gaming experience with Mirror's Edge Catalyst in their report. Stating that a GTX 970 on High at 1080p, and a GTX 980 Ti on Ultra or a GTX 1080 on Hyper at 1440p will get a 60FPS average. NVIDIA also notes that they have identified a Mirror's Edge Catalyst DirectX crash issue in Windows 8.1 when SLI is enabled. They are working to rectify the issue for a future update.

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 368.39 release notes.

    The release notes link points to the correct version. On a side note, is it just me or has content on Anandtech basically slowed to a crawl? It is getting to the point where I am visiting the site much less often and coming back to find minimal updates. The acquisition doesn't appear to have done much for the site. Reply

    If they keep on skipping on big reviews, manufacturers will eventually just stop sending review samples altogether (Nvidia probably already has :P). Reply

    Quality over quantity. If you want a lot of shit reviews just go to Engadget. Reply

    I understand wanting to defend Anandtech because it's a great site and a great resource but let's not resort to the false dichotomy fallacy. Reply

    The problem is that I've seen plenty of sites do quality reviews, yet they all do it faster than AT. I've been reading this site for a long time, but it's slowly become a site I barely check, if ever. The last site I did that with was DailyTech, sure enough, they died and there hasn't been any updates in about 7 months. If Anandtech dies I will be sad :(. I wonder how much of this is due to Anandtech having to compete with LinusTechTips... Reply

    The problem is that by the time the reviews are coming out everyone already knows the vast majority of what there is to know about the products so are not going to read such an indepth review after such a long time.

    This isn't being entitled, as some like to out it, it is people trying to inform the site that if they want to continue having people come here and defend it as the pinnacle of tech review sites then they need to get reviews out in a reasonable amount of time.

    If it is because the reviewers are over worked they need more reviewers.

    Hopefully it'll never get as bad as Tom's. They didn't even review the Surface Pro 3/4 Reply
