This has been a great year for Nvidia when it comes to releasing graphics cards, but its driver releases tell a different story. Knowing all of this, we would advice our readers to hold off installing Nvidia’s Game Ready 375.86 driver for now – especially if you own any GTX 10 series graphics cards. At least until the company releases a new, more stable driver.
