NVIDIA Issue Geforce 375.86 - WHQL Game Ready Drivers

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅16.11.2016 00:51:45

Today NVIDIA released their latest GeForce Game Ready driver, intended to provide the best possible compatibility as soon as possible on new or recently updated gaming titles. The Geforce 375.86 - WHQL Game Ready Drivers have been developed and tested specifically for Tom Clancy’s The Division Survival DLC, Sid Meier's Civilisation VI, Steep's Open Beta, and Battlefield 1.

These drivers have been released on the eve of Battlefest, EA's Battlefield 1 world-wide community event following today's Fall Update patch, and should help any newcomers to the sprawling WW1 first-person shooter get the very best experience when they dip their toe in.

The Survival DLC for Tom Clancey's The Division launches on November 22nd on PC, so the new drivers come well in advance of this new content for Ubisoft's MMO. Smooth frame rates will be more critical than even in this update, which appears to be focussed around a time-limited PvP 'Battle Royale' where players need to scavenge resources and survive against their competition. It remains to be seen whether this game mode can capitalise on the recent popularity of similar modes in other titles.

Geforce 375.86 - WHQL Game Ready Drivers also roll in the improvements made in earlier driver releases, most notably to performance and functionality in VR applications across a variety of platforms.
