I want to update my current version of the grid driver to the latest version but whenever i try to update it from the nvidia drivers page my gpu isnt recognized and i end up having to roll back to the version i downloaded from here ( https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/windows/n-series-driver-setup) [I installed the GRID 10.1 442.06] so i can run games such as COD Warzone and Fortnite. Currently im experiencing constant stutters on fortnite and i would like to know if its possible to update the driver to the latest version

    If I understand your question correctly, it sounds like you're currently using the GRID 10.1 442.06 drivers in your Azure NV-series VM, and you're asking whether you can update to more recent drivers available from NVIDIA's website or some other source.

    The basic answer is no. As of this writing, 442.06 drivers are the most recent NVIDIA drivers supported by Azure's NV-series VMs. Azure only supports the drivers posted on the setup page you linked (https://learn.microsoft.com/azure/virtual-machines/windows/n-series-driver-setup). More recent drivers found through NVIDIA's website or other sources besides that doc page are not officially supported.

    NVIDIA's GRID drivers and Tesla GPUs are tailored to cloud GPU workstations. They may have different features and optimizations than NVIDIA's GeForce drivers and GPUs, which are tailored to consumer gaming systems.
