INF v6.113

Wed, 01 Aug 2018 10:00:55 +0000

Modded iNF exclusively just for 398.72

A different kind of INF, Control Panel doesn't work but driver installs fine
Too early to tell if NV are heading down this new INF style road.

INF v6.112

Sun, 29 Jul 2018 06:12:54 +0000

Added support for:

NVIDIA_DEV.1CCC = "NVIDIA GP107BM"
NVIDIA_DEV.1CCD = "NVIDIA GP107BM"
NVIDIA_DEV.1E07 = "NVIDIA GV102"
NVIDIA_DEV.1E3C = "NVIDIA GV102GL"
NVIDIA_DEV.1E87 = "NVIDIA GV104 [GeForce GTX 1180]"
NVIDIA_DEV.1EAB = "NVIDIA GV104M"

The GTX 1180 might not be actually released as such, I would just stick with the Codename and wait for an actual official NV release to confirm that it could or could not be reality
But that Codename is supported in our INFs all the same no matter what it may turn out to be

INF v6.111

Fri, 27 Jul 2018 05:44:30 +0000

Added Support for:

https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexperience/2018/07/25/announcing-windows-10-insider-preview-build-17723-and-build-18204/

Today, we are releasing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17723 (RS5) to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring and Build 18204 (19H1) to Windows Insiders who have opted in to Skip Ahead.

Going forward, RS5 builds will come from the RS5_RELEASE branch. For Insiders who chose to “skip ahead”, 19H1 builds will continue to come from the RS_PRERELEASE branch. Insiders can see the branch name in the watermark at the lower right of their desktop. Right now, the builds from these branches are largely the same which is why we’re only doing a single blog post for both of today’s new builds. However, in the future we will be doing separate blog posts for each.

Answer ID 4674

Graphics Firmware Update for DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4 Displays.


To enable the latest DisplayPort 1.3 / 1.4 features, Maxwell and desktop Pascal graphics cards may require a firmware update.

Applicable Graphics Cards
NVIDIA TITAN Series:
TITAN X (Maxwell), TITAN X (Pascal), TITAN XP

GeForce 10 Series:
GeForce GT 1030, GeForce GTX 1050, GTX 1050Ti, GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1070Ti, GTX 1080, GTX 1080Ti

GeForce 900 Series:
GeForce GTX 950, GTX 950Ti, GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, GTX 980Ti

GeForce 700 Series:
GeForce GTX 745, GTX 750, GTX 750Ti

Quadro Series:
Quadro GP100, Quadro P6000, Quadro P5000, Quadro P4000, Quadro P2000, Quadro P1000, Quadro P620, Quadro P600, Quadro P400, Quadro M6000 24GB, Quadro M6000, Quadro M5000, Quadro M4000, Quadro M2000, Quadro K2200, Quadro K1200, Quadro K620, NVS 810

The DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4 specifications provide enhanced display capabilities.  To ensure compatibility with these specifications, an update to the NVIDIA graphics firmware may be required.

Without the update, systems that are connected to a DisplayPort 1.3 / 1.4 monitor could experience blank screens on boot until the operating system loads, or could experience a hang on boot.  

NVIDIA has created a downloadable tool which will detect whether the firmware update is needed, and if needed, give the user the option to update it.

This update only applies to the graphics cards listed above. For desktop systems, please follow the link below to download the NVIDIA Graphics Firmware Update Tool.
