NVIDIA released GeForce 411.70 drivers: solve RTX2080 series power management problems
NVIDIA has released the 411.70 version of the driver certified by Microsoft’s WHQL. This update is a routine fix to resolve known issues.
This update optimization and known issues are almost identical to the previous version, and the release log written by NVIDIA was the same as the earlier version when the update was first released.
However, some users think that the company may update the log immediately after the error of Nvidia. The log mentions the power management problem of the RTX 2080 series.
Particular emphasis: no longer support older versions of Windows 10
If you have purchased or are ready to purchase an RTX 20XX series graphics card, be sure to upgrade your system to Windows 10 Version 1709 and higher in advance.
The graphics card drivers for this series of graphics cards no longer support older versions before version 1709. So drivers will not install correctly if you use older versions.
NVIDIA officially recommends the Windows 10 Version 1803 April update and the upcoming Windows 10 Version 1809 release.
The reason for recommending this version is that Microsoft introduced DXR ray tracing technology in this version, and NVIDIA’s RTX technology needs to call the DXR interface.
DXR ray tracing technology was introduced by Microsoft earlier this year, so it is currently only supported by the Windows 10 Version 1803 April update.
