NVIDIA just pushed the new GeForce Driver (387.92), downloadable either via GeForce Experience or the official GeForce website.

This driver brings a 15-25% performance boost to Forza Motorsport 7, according to NVIDIA. It also delivers Game Ready optimization for Middle-earth: Shadow of War, The Evil Within 2 and Arktika.1, which are all due to launch this week.

With regards to Middle-earth: Shadow of War, NVIDIA recommends a GTX 1080 Ti to play at 4K@60 with the High preset while you’ll need a GTX 1080 Ti SLI to do the same on the Ultra preset.

This GeForce driver also introduces additional features, though. For instance, Fast Sync is now supported under SLI; DXIL is now available (on NVIDIA Kepler and later GPUs only). For a complete list, check out the change log below.

New Features
Added support for OpenGL 4.61
Added NVIDIA GameStream support for HDR under Windows 10
Added Fast Sync support for SLI
Fast Sync under SLI is available only on the following ‘bridged’ SLI configurations:
• NVIDIA Maxwell GPUs: Any resolution less than 4k
• NVIDIA Pascal & later GPUs: Any resolution
Implemented improvement in full-screen Vulkan applications for 32-bit Windows
swapchains.
This optimization will cause more events that trigger an out-of-date swapchain, such
as when entering or leaving full-screen mode (typically by pressing Alt+tab).
Applications that do not properly respond to the VK_ERROR_OUT_OF_DATE_KHR
return code may not function properly when these events occur. See the WSI
Swapchain section of the Vulkan specification.
•  Added support for the DirectX Intermediate Language (DXIL)
• Includes full support for DirectX 12 Shader Model 6.0, features such as Wavemath,
and the DirectX Shader Compiler (supported only on NVIDIA Kepler and later GPUs).

Added or updated the following SLI profiles:
• Earthfall
• Lawbreakers
• Middle-Earth: Shadow of War
• Nex Machina
• ReCore
• RiME
• Snake Pass
• Tekken 7
• The Evil Within 2
• We Happy Few
