NVIDIA hotfix driver v460.97: Patch notes, BSOD fix, and what has changed in the update?

PC gaming, and an awful lot of the hardware that makes it possible, is really picking up speed at the moment.

We've had a slew of new releases and announcements in the last few months that mean that it's the best ever time to be a PC gamer.

As is always the case nowadays though, you don't just buy new software, you then have to keep it up to date if you want to get the most out of it.

Well, NVIDIA just released a new hotfix for their GPUs, so here's what you need to know.

What's in the NVIDIA hotfix driver v460.97 patch

This particular hotfix is mainly focussed on some issues plaguing laptop users rather than anyone else. It also brings in a stutter that occurs with Marvel's Avengers, just in case you're still playing that.

These are the full notes according to the website:

  • Some apps that use NVML may not detect GPU [3200758]
  • Stutter may be observed with some configurations in Marvel's Avengers [3197999]
  • Lenovo Y740 may display corruption on waking from sleep [3178279]
  • Some notebooks may BSOD when waking from sleep while connected to external monitor via dock/dongle [3162411]
  • With HDR enabled, black levels are incorrect. [200682795]

It's not a very flashy update, but every little fix helps.
