NVIDIA hotfix driver for Alan Wake 2
NVIDIA releases drivers on a regular basis, usually when new graphics cards or games come out. Sometimes the company is able to discover new bugs right before or after the release of a game ready driver, which has completed its WHQL certification.
For this, the company has something called Hotfix drivers, which are meant to address important issues that have already been discovered and fixed by the company engineers. Typically, these are minor fixes that address a specific issue, typically not involving any significant consequences. If any of the addressed issues covered are important to gamers, they can choose whether they need a hotfix driver. Otherwise, they can always wait for the official WHQL release.
The new hotfix driver is built upon the latest 546.01 WHQL release. It was released to address three bugs, one for a game Alan Wake 2. NVIDIA discovered that there was a bug causing stability and performance degradation over extended period of play. So if any of you noticed that the game runs slowly after some time, this hotfix should fix this issue.
