Hello folks, I just bought a new 144hz gaming monitor (Acer Predator XB253QGP) which is listed as officially G-sync compatible by Nvidia (https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/). There's even the name of the driver, "461.40 or newer" - they've added it like one or two days ago. But I can't seem to find it anywhere on the web, all I've found is a years-old "1.0" driver on the Acer website. Without this g-sync driver, while the nvidia control panel lets me activate the tech, it doesn't recognize my monitor as compatible and I'm not sure it will work in games. Could anyone enlighten me on what I must do ? I'd be much grateful.

Cheers, stay safe.

That's not a driver for the monitor, that's a driver for the GPU. 461.40 is Nvidia's most recent driver for their GPUs, from a few days ago.
