Nvidia Releases Windows Security Manager 474.14 for GTX 700/600 Kepler GPUs


For the folks out there still running Nvidia GeForce Kepler desktop GPUs, like those belonging to the GeForce GTX 600 and GTX 700 series, as well as the GTX TITAN, TITAN Z, and TITAN Black, the company announced a new WHQL-certified monitor driver update today.

The GeForce GTX 780 Ti

You might be a bit surprised by this announcement as Nvidia has already ended driver support for Kepler. However, it is not the general Game Ready driver that brings support for new graphics cards or optimizations for new game titles. Instead, it is a security update driver designed to fix some of the security issues that have arisen. Nvidia previously stated that it would provide security updates to Kepler until September 2024, and the company appears to be keeping its word.

As such, the driver changelog does not list fixed bugs or known issues. The release note only says:

NVIDIA has released a software security update for the NVIDIA GPU Display Driver. This update addresses issues that could lead to code execution, denial of service, privilege escalation, information disclosure, or data corruption.
