Fixed Issues in Version 418 U1

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 driver to version 385.90, or disable Deep Color within the application as follows:
    From the startup screen choose System Settings.
    - In the System Settings Dialog, choose the Advanced tab.
    - From the list (under Graphics) select "OpenGL: Disable 'deep color'
    - Click the boolean button to turn the setting on.
  •  [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.
