Changed in Media Composer v2019.7

Media Composer v2019.7 has been tested with Nvidia driver v431.02. Although Avid tested and recommends this version, you are not limited to this driver. You can access your graphics card website for information on the driver matching your card. Please note that Avid can not guarantee Media Composer will operate as expected when using an untested driver version. You may need to install the tested driver version when attempting to resolve technical issues.
