What are "profile updates"?

Hey,

I have, what I'm sure is a pretty noob question:

Can someone explain to me what the "profile updates" are that are always mentioned in graphics driver updates?

Thanks!

    Hi south_valhalla,

    This will help answer your question:
    I believe it comes from Nvidia and for SLI

    What are Profile Updates?
    Application profiles enable multiple NVIDIA GPUs in your PC to work together for faster performance. So, for PCs with more than one NVIDIA GPU (and with SLI or multi-GPU enabled) these updates boost the performance in the applications listed. Once the update is installed, these games will automatically use all of the GPUs in your PC to achieve the fastest performance possible.

    So in short, it basically helps improve game performance from the list the update provides.
