Nvidia provides the new graphics driver for Quadro cards

The update provides 30% more performance for some applications.

NVIDIA has released a new version of its Quadro graphics driver, the 440 U1 (440.97 WHQL), which is an Optimal Drivers for Enterprise (ODE) package that implements Microsoft's full support for Windows 10. day in November 2019 (Update 19H2)

In addition, the current release provides performance enhancements (up to 30% gain) for applications such as SOLIDWORKS, PTC Creo, and Autodesk VRED from Dassault Systemes, and adds support for G-SYNC for OpenGL applications and Vulkan with windows.

In addition, users can now merge and scale the contents of two screens and export the final image to a separate screen / projector connected to the same graphics processor, use multiple new extensions, and benefit from the additional changes described in the notes. update below.

The 440 version improves performance over the previous ODE version 430, with performance gains of up to 30% for popular applications such as SOLIDWORKS, PTC Creo, and Autodesk VRED from Dassault Systemes, depending on the mode of operation. application and optimization parameters. Regarding compatibility, version 440.97 is suitable for desktop and notebook configurations running on any of Microsoft's 64-bit variants of Windows 7, 8, 8.1, or 10 platforms, as well as desktop systems running Server 2008, 2012. 2016, 2016 or 2019.
