Battlefield 1 – Nvidia releases drivers with fixes for DirectX crashes & SLI issues

If you play Battlefield 1 with Nvidia graphics card, you are suffering with some bad luck under the infamous DirectX crashes; SLI users are tormented by flicker and similar problems. After the graphic card manufacturer announced some time ago that they would work “around the clock” on a solution to the problems, today is the desired new driver for download . Whether the new driver version brings something, we will probably learn from the feedback in the coming hours …

We can not and do not want to write more about that at the moment. Give us in the Comments Feedback, if the new driver will remedy the problems or if you continue to be plagued and tormented. We are very excited and keep our fingers crossed …


The infamous DirectX crash in Battlefield 1 is probably the most annoying bug currently found in Battlefield, driving many players to incandescence. While the community is blaming Swedish developers for the game, the reality seems to be a little different: AMD users have not had crossfire system issues since the last update, or suffer from the DirectX crash. Instead of a general problem, it now seems to be a manufacturer-specific error.

In the official forum, Nvidia has now confirmed that they are working “around the clock” on a solution. When a driver update comes, which solves the problems, is currently unknown. Whether DICE can also solve some of the problems is still unknown at this time. The only thing is: It is slowly but surely high time that the problems are resolved as soon as possible.

Battlefield 1 – SLI fixes and performance improvements in the December patch

Apart from the DirectX bug and lack of skill, looking for problems in Battlefield 1 will bring you fast and reliable performance problems on all platforms and PC-exclusive problems with SLI systems. On Twitter and in the official forum, DICE has now had a say and good news in the luggage: Both errors are in the December update – which allegedly appear on December 13 and will definitely bring Giants Shadow as a new map … – more or less complete on the collar.

In the case of performance problems on all platforms, one will correct a bug that caused dynamically adjusted and loaded textures to be partially forced to have too high a resolution , starting a downward spiral: To improve performance, should be temporarily low but they were replaced by higher-resolution and performance-hungry variants, which led to even more performance issues. (A real vicious …) Especially the consoles were affected.

The SLI problems are also on the collar. However, DICE can not do it alone with patches remedies e – the graphics card manufacturers will provide appropriate driver updates.
