Nvidia releases Geforce 397.64 WHQL drivers Pillars of Eternity

Nvidia has released their first WHQL driver of May, Geforce 397.64, which addresses several issues found in previous driver iterations and offers "Game Ready" support for Destiny 2: Warmind, Conan Exiles, and Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire. 

A major change to this driver is Nvidia's fix for their code 43 issue, which prevented Nvidia's previous driver from installing correctly on some GTX 1060 series graphics cards. Other changes include fixes for a Windows 10 issue which caused the driver to be removed if a PC idled for extended periods of time and a bug which caused black screen issues when Kepler users exited Starcraft II.  

Below you will find a complete list of what is changed with Nvidia's Geforce 397.64 WHQL driver for Windows.
