Both Sniper Elite 4 and For Honor released on February 14. And on the same day both the big players in the GPU market, Nvidia and AMD, released their own drivers optimized for these games.

'Game Ready' 378.66 is Nvidia's solution for the latest hot game releases. Specifically, For Honor, Sniper Elite 4 and Halo Wars 2 are the games the driver is optimized for. But that's not it; there are several bug fixes as well. These are the fixes:

*.[The Division]: Shadows flicker after enabling PCSS.

As for AMD, they released Crimson 17.2.1 ReLive driver. It is optimized especially for Sniper Elite 4 and For Honor. AMD claims that this driver will give those with an RX 480 a performance boost of up to 5% in Sniper Elite 4 and up to 4% in For Honor. It also adds multi-GPU support for both the games.

The other fixes are as follows:

*.For Honor may experience an application crash when switching to fullscreen or menus in gameplay on Multi GPU configurations
*.On some Radeon GCN products DXVA H.264 encoded video may experience corruption when fast forwarding or seeking through content.
*.AMD FreeSync technology mode may fail to enable itself on some fullscreen applications.
*.Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has incorrect default slider values with Radeon Chill enabled. Users can modify these values to suit the experience they want.
*.Graphics processor information may be missing from system information overlay on Radeon ReLive captured videos.
*.DayZ may experience an application crash when Radeon ReLive Instant Replay/Recording is active or the feature may not work as expected.
*.Memory clocks may become locked at low states on Radeon R9 380 series products.
*.Radeon ReLive recording in fullscreen with Windows Media Player or Power DVD may experience flickering.
*.AMD Radeon HD 7900 series products may experience shadow corruption when shadows are disabled in Civilization VI.
