nVIDIA Studio Driver 517.40 for Windows 11 / 10

NVIDIA Studio Drivers provide artists, creators and 3D developers the best performance and reliability when working with creative applications. To achieve the highest level of reliability, Studio Drivers undergo extensive testing against multi-app creator workflows and multiple revisions of the top creative applications from Adobe to Autodesk and beyond.

Although GeForce Game Ready Drivers and NVIDIA Studio Drivers you can install on supported notebook GPUs, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) provides certified drivers for your specific notebook on their website. NVIDIA recommends that you check with your notebook OEM for recommended software updates for your notebook.

nVIDIA Studio Driver supports
30-bit colour

In addition, this new NVIDIA Studio Driver introduces support for 30-bit colour across all product lines. With 24-bit colour, a pixel can be built from 16.7 million shades of colour. By increasing to 30-bit colour, a pixel can now be built from over 1 billion shades of colour, which eliminates the abrupt changes in shades of the same colour.

Applications

The May NVIDIA Studio Driver provides optimal support for the latest new creative applications including DaVinci Resolve 18, Adobe Substance Modeler Beta, Topaz Labs Gigapixel AI v6.1, Marmoset Toolbag 4.04, and Reallusion iClone 8. In addition, this NVIDIA Studio Driver supports the latest developments for Omniverse spanning Omniverse Cloud, Omniverse Audio2Face, Omniverse Machinima, and the Omniverse XR App beta.
