In April, Microsoft officially released the DX12 Ultimate Ultimate, which can also be understood as DX12_2, adding advanced features such as DXR 1.1 ray tracing, variable speed shading rate (VRS Tier 1/2), mesh shader, sampler feedback, etc., integrated into Windows 10 v2004, Xbox Series X.
Previously, NVIDIA was the first to release a development-driven version to support the DX12 Ultimate Edition. Now, NVIDIA has released the GeForce 451.48 official graphics driver, the first and only complete support for the DX12 Ultimate, covering all features.
The new driver supports all desktop and notebook graphics cards from the GeForce 600 series, including kepler, Maxwell, Pascal, and Turing, but NVIDIA does not explicitly explain which models fully support the DX12 Ultimate Edition, and, unsurprisingly, the latest RTX 20 Series.
In addition, the new driver officially supports the hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling feature introduced in the Windows 10 v2004 May update, and fixes nine bugs, including increased display brightness after GPU zooming on, disappearance of NVIDIA HDDI audio after monitor sleep, change of cursor to gray rectangle when YouTube 4K HDR video playback, Rogue Sea screen rendering errors, “Legitimate Defense 2” can not detect CUDA file errors, “Biochemical Crisis 2” Objects and menus flash randomly, and so on.
