The season's flurry of games has brought along a blizzard of updates. Bad pun tie-ins aside, there is little that tarnishes a shiny new game like musty old drivers, and once again NVIDIA strives to keep up with the holiday rush with another new driver release.

NVIDIA's latest 359.00 WHQL drivers bring us game ready support for the newly released Assassin's Creed Syndicate, which is part of their Bullets or Blades bundle that is still running. Also receiving the game ready treatment is Blizzard's Overwatch beta that begins this Friday and will be running through this weekend. Alongside those two games the also recently released Star Wars: Battlefront is receiving some additional performance optimizations post-release.

Outside of game performance the version 359.00 WHQL driver also brings driver support for GameWorks VR 1.0 which aims to provide performance optimizations to virtual reality users. Also while there are no issue fixes for windows 10 users Windows 7 users did get an SLI profile update for Guild Wars 2.

Anyone interested can download the updated drivers through GeForce Experience or on the NVIDIA driver download page.

    No issue fixes for Windows 10? So having the driver crash regularly on such GPU-heavy games as "Solitaire" or "the Start Menu" is a feature, then?

    Maybe you should try a super computer for those daunting tasks.

    If MS can't get a Start Menu to display without crashing a video driver, you should probably take it up with them.

    What makes you think that it is MS's fault for the video driver crashing? I'm using Windows 10 successfully on two machines - one with Haswell (Intel) and one with Kepler (NVIDIA) - and both have no issues with the start menu (or for that matter the long list of games I play on steam). This would suggest it is an issue with the driver that may be related to specific hardware.

    sounds like a hardware problem. Possibly GPU or PSU, or a dirty as hell windows install

    I just think it's sad that video card drivers are about 300 MB now. I liked it when it was only a few MB in size.
