    391.35 fixes a lot of security vulnerabilities so it is worth getting just for that.

    It's time for 32-bit OSes to retire on the PC. They had a good run, starting (mainstream) with Win95, well over 20 years ago now, and most people who are actively using their GPUs (IE, beyond desktop apps/work) likely switched years ago already - I myself went 64-bit with winvista, and never ever looked back.

    Geforce Version: 397.31 WHQL
    April 25, 2018


    Version: 397.31 WHQL
    Release Date: 2018.4.25
    Operating System: Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, Windows 8 64-bit, Windows 10
    Language: English (US)
    File Size: 414.87 MB

    Game Ready
    Provides the optimal gaming experience for BattleTech and FrostPunk.

    New Features
     NVIDIA RTXTM Technology
    Developer preview for NVIDIA RTX ray tracing technology for DirectX 12. NVIDIA
    RTX supports the Microsoft DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API on NVIDIA Volta GPUs.

    In order to get started with developing DirectX Raytracing applications accelerated by
    RTX, you'll need the following:
    • NVIDIA Volta GPU
    • NVIDIA driver version 396 or higher
    • Windows 10 RS4
    • Microsoft's DXR developer package, consisting of DXR-enabled D3D runtimes,
    HLSL compiler, and headers

     Vulkan 1.1
    This driver release provides full support for the new Vulkan 1.1 API and passes the
    Vulkan Conformance Test Suite (CTS) version 1.1.0.3.

     HD Audio
    This driver adds new sample rates 32 kHz, 88.2 kHz, and 176.4 kHz to the HDMI
    device for all GPUs.


     Display Driver Standalone Installer
    The standalone display driver installer now removes extracted files after installing the
    driver, leaving a smaller footprint on the hard drive.

     Display Driver Libraries
    Added new libraries (nvdlist.dll and nvdlistx.dll) to support Optimus and MSHybrid
    notebooks.

     NVDECODE API
    Added a new API that lets the client reconfigure the decoder resolution and other post
    processing parameters (such as the display resolution, cropping rectangle, and aspect
    ratio of the decoded frame) without having to destroy and recreate the decoder
    instance. This API is useful in scenarios where the decoder instance initialization time
    takes up a significant portion of the overall decode execution time; for example, in
    back-to-back decoding of multiple short clips of different resolutions.
    The new API will be included in Video Codec SDK 8.2, which is expected to release in
    late Q2 2018.

    Application SLI Profiles
    Added or updated the following SLI profiles:
    • Descenders
    • Frostpunk
    • Warhammer: Vermintide 2
    • Far Cry 5

    3D Vision Profiles
    Added or updated the following 3D Vision profiles:
    • Descenders - Good
    • EVE Valkyrie - Warzone - Good

    Software Module Versions

    • nView - 148.92
    • HD Audio Driver - 1.3.37.1
    • NVIDIA PhysX System Software - 9.17.0524
    • GeForce Experience - 3.13.1.30
    • CUDA - 9.2

    Also WDDM 2.4 - thanks @Endbase
