The latest Nvidia GeForce Game Ready driver has arrived, enabling support for the brand new NVIDIA Reflex feature, which is coming to major titles like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its counterpart, Call of Duty: Warzone. This driver also preps GeForce GPU owners for the launch of Star Wars: Squadrons.
If you happen to own an RTX graphics card, then this driver gets even more interesting with the introduction of DLSS 8K performance modes for several games. The new 8K DLSS Ultra Performance mode uses a newly trained AI super resolution model, purpose-built for 8K, that offers image quality comparable to native resolution, while rendering only one ninth of the pixels. In supported titles, users will now have up to 4 DLSS image quality modes – Quality, Balanced, Performance, and Ultra Performance, for even more user choice and even bigger performance boosts.
With this driver, you will find support for 8K DLSS in Control and Death Stranding, but other titles like Minecraft, Watch Dogs: Legion, Bright Memory Infinite and more will also be getting support down the line.
NVIDIA Reflex, a suite of GPU, G-SYNC and in-game technologies aims to measure and noticeably reduce system latency in competitive games. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Warzone are now getting support, joining the likes of Fortnite and Valorant. Other games like Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Destiny 2 and more will also support NVIDIA Reflex in the months to come.
This driver should also apparently help with recent reports of RTX 3080 GPUs crashing, but we’ll need to wait for more user testing to deem how successful it is. If any of you happen to have an RTX 3080 and have faced issues with games crashing, let us know if this driver improved things in the comments.
