Nvidia has kicked off this week with three announcements. For starters, a new Game Ready driver is debuting today with optimisations for Apex Legends, we’ve received news that the list of ‘G-Sync compatible’ displays is expanding to include more options and a new RTX GPU bundle is also on the way.
We’ll start off with the new ‘Triple Threat’ game bundle. Recently, AMD has been providing competition for Nvidia with bundle deals on the Radeon VII, Vega 64 & 56 and the RX 590. To combat this, Nvidia is bundling three games that showcase RTX features with the RTX 2080Ti and RTX 2080. These games are of course, Metro Exodus, Anthem and Battlefield V. If you grab an RTX 2060 or RTX 2070 instead, you’ll be able to choose one of those three games instead.
At CES in January, Nvidia announced that it would finally start playing nicely with FreeSync. GeForce GPU owners can now switch on G-Sync on any adaptive sync display, although Nvidia has a certification program in place for displays that work best.
The list of ‘G-Sync Compatible’ certified monitors has now expanded to include the following:
• BenQ XL2540-B/ZOWIE XL LCD
• Acer XF250Q
• Acer ED273 A
Finally, the latest ‘Game Ready’ GeForce graphics driver is available starting today. This includes optimisations for Apex Legends, The Division 2 and Devil May Cry 5. Apex Legends is of course already out and thriving, although DMC 5 doesn’t arrive until Friday and The Division 2 will be available next week.
KitGuru Says: Game bundles are always a nice addition, although I still think RTX prices could stand to come down a bit. Are any of you planning to pick up one of the big game releases this month?
