The latest driver.  Has anyone installed it and have you seen any problems with P3D v4.2?

Whilst it obviously doesn't answer your question, I can't understand the need to keep updating graphics drivers for flight sims. The only times that it's worth updating is if they contain some sort of specific optimisation or bug fix for a particular game you run. If your current driver works, stick with it! The chances of seeing noticeable improvements with newer drivers are very small, whilst the chances of seeing new problems are much higher.

Nvidia have released a firmware update for GPUs, for display port 1.3 and 1.4 for better use of HDR, but you have to go and get it, the latest driver 398.18 is a bug fix for 398.11.

I asked the original question.  Yet I agree that it's best to leave well enough alone!  My driver is 388.13.
