PNY Pro Tips: #3 Apply NVIDIA DisplayPort 1.3 & 1.4 Firmware Update

Posted by Jay Chen on Thu, Jun 28, 2018 @ 06:31 PM

 

Updates (06/28/2018):   PNY recommends applying the software tool to GeForce cards only. Quadro users should contact PNY Technical support to learn the ideal update procedure to meet their specific configuration and intended application needs.

NVIDIA recently released an update tool to ensure proper DisplayPort 1.3 and 1.4 support for its GeForce Maxwell and Pascal architecture graphics cards.  NVIDIA states in the release note that without this update, some systems connected to DisplayPort 1.3 or 1.4 monitors could experience blank screens during the boot process until the OS loads, or could prevent the system from completely booting the OS.  In this Pro Tip, let’s walk through the simple update process.
