GPU has outdated drivers

When launching Substance 3D Painter a pop-up window can appear mentioning that the GPU drivers are outdated. This message simply means the software requires a minimum version of the GPU drivers to be installed. We recommended updating the GPU drivers to the latest version available when possible to get the best working experience.

Vendor Link

  • GeForce : "Studio Drivers" (SD) version recommended.
  • Quadro : "Optimal Driver fro Enterprise" (ODE) version recommended.

Some computer may have two GPUs: an integrated one (like an Intel chipset) and a dedicated one (like an Nvidia graphic card). Both needs to be up to date.
