Fixed Issues in Version 418 U1 – Windows 10
[Quadro P1000 / P2000]: Implemented and enabled TCM for the referenced products in order to support Windows 10 RDMA.
Windows 7 Open Issues in Version R418 U1
[Quadro Sync]: Frame overruns occur on low resolution channels when using QuadroSync swap synchronization.
Windows 10 Open Issues in Version R418 U1
[Octane Renderer 3.08]: Rendering a scene with Octane renderer results in a GPU: FAILED error. [200470308]
To work around, downgrade the driver to a previous driver release (410 or 415).
[Warp and Blend]: The system hangs and then crashes after enabling warp and blend or per-pixel intensity feature on a custom resolution.
[Assimilate Scratch]: The application may crash due to a kernel exception in the NVIDIA OpenGL driver.
If you encounter this issue, roll back the version 385.90, or disable Deep Color within the application.
[Multi-GPU Mosaic]: The secondary GPU does not render video content when played from the Chrome browser in full-screen mode.
[Multi-GPU Mosaic] [Quadro Sync]: Application corruption and possible blue-screen crash occurs when enabling WARP while Mosaic and Quadro Sync are enabled.
