Nvidia is going through some rough waters as the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 that was launched only a couple of days ago now has to navigate through the new world of virtual reality. Owners of the graphic card are complaining that they are experiencing VR perfromance and compatibility issues. The company has stated that the issues will be solved within a week.

It can be pretty frustrating when you gamng gear fails to work, though no fault of your own. These are the problems faced by player:

DisplayPort

Many users have taken to Nvidia forum in order to complain that the DisplayPort headset just doesn’t work with the HTC Vive on the 10-series graphics cards. It was confirmed later that the problem will be fixed with a new game Ready driver that’ll be released before Friday. Meanwhile, HTC Vive users will be using their HDMI port.

No Boost

Although it isn’t a VR related issue, the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 released only a couple of weeks back. Apparently the 368.69 driver broke the GTX 1080’s boost clock in VR games. This is a big drawback for players because it is the boost clock that provides a GeForce graphics card the push when palyers are limited in the game. But since the driver locked the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 to running at their lower base clock speeds instead, the performance got reduced. News is that Nvidia has already identified what is causing the problem and the driver update at the end of this year.
