With Forza Horizon 3 coming out for Ultimate Edition SKU users in a little over a day, NVIDIA has released their new Game Ready drivers. GeForce 372.90 drivers roll in all of NVIDIA's fixes for the game that have been discovered during its development.
Thankfully, unlike the slippage that I've witnessed from them recently in this regard, the release notes for 372.90 are quite verbose (PDF). For instance, and this probably affects a few of our readers, NVIDIA has finally fixed the issue with HTC Vive over DisplayPort. Their description sounds like it wasn't failing to connect, as users believed, but rather it was just failing to light up the display. Of course, from a user's standpoint, a black screen is a black screen, but it's interesting to see what honest admissions of what exactly any given error was.
So, TL;DR: HTC Vive users should be able to use it over DisplayPort with Pascal again.
Also, they announced that the driver contains security updates. They don't elaborate on what specifically was fixed, especially since it will take a while for users to update, but it sounds like NVIDIA was in bug-fixing mode with this driver, which I appreciate.
You can get GeForce 372.90 from GeForce Experience and their website.

Really hate that they did that. I manage a few machines at home and don’t want to create a user account for each machine.

Drivers do not require login. The only drivers that were supposed to be exclusive to GeForce Experience are the Beta ones, but we have only had WHQL or Hotfix drivers since then, so it might never happen.

Really? I thought they have fixed the Vive problem months ago. They are fast, aren’t they?
Why do I always see you in
Why do I always see you in every single Nvidia driver post with some sort of stupid, sarcastic comment?
At this point you’re just trolling. It’s obvious you’re a AMD fanboy.
Don’t be that much upset and
Don’t be that much upset and don’t lie. I rarely post. Anyone who doesn’t have anything better to do, can have a look in the latest articles and see if and in how many I have posted. Probably 10%?(EDIT: Nope, comments only in 2-3 articles, in the last 40+ articles, some of them about Nvidia or Nvidia’s products -none of those comments in those Nvidia articles) As for driver articles, my last comment I think was a positive one about Nvidia’s GFE.
JohnGR is a well known AMD
JohnGR is a well known AMD shilltroll paid by AMD to attack anything Nvidia here, such a loser at life should have been banned years ago.
I seriously doubt you have
I seriously doubt you have anything to back up that accusation. The fact that he is a registered user who doesn't hide behind anonymity and spew insults makes his contributions infinitely more valuable than yours.
Thank you. 🙂
Thank you. 🙂
second and third that.
second and third that. Actually, he is more objective than any of the nvidia fanboys that post. Fucking anonymous cowards. I can’t be objective when it comes to AMD because of my long position, but I never feel the need to disparage Nvidia as so many folks do with respect to AMD. AMD is not the same company it was even a year ago. They have great leadership and will continue to bring us great products and choices once again.
Thank you man. I love your

Hope the random desktop
Hope the random desktop flicker is gone.
Notes mention some flicker fixes in game but not the my screens randomly flicker that last few releases have had.
Been on 369.09, I’ll give it a try.
One wonders why NVIDIA
One wonders why NVIDIA releases a new driver for Forza 3 while AMD merely attempts to release a new driver?
I don’t quite get what you
I don’t quite get what you mean by that comment. Care to elaborate?
Yeah I don’t know what you’re
Yeah I don't know what you're talking about regarding that. Both companies released Forza-optimized drivers, and both fixed multiple, other issues, too.
Scott, to me, putting in the
Scott, to me, putting in the modifier “attempted” sheds a negative light on the good work being done by AMD. You know what it implies even though I doubt that was your intention. I was bothered by it as well, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt and ignored it until now.
Oh I didn’t even know they
Oh I didn't even know they were referring to my other post.
That "Continuing with AMD's attempts" chunk was referring to AMD's initiative to increase driver quality. AMD has been attempting to increase driver quality for the last year. They have publicly announced that as their intentions, and I've been pointing out how they've been successful at that.
