NVIDIA Release Game Ready Drivers For Sniper Elite 5 & Hitman 3 RTX Support

👤by Tim Harmer Comments 📅25.05.2022 22:19:49

Computex 2022 may be ongoing this week but the regular grind of software support continues, no matter what illustrious new toys may be showcased. As proof, NVIDIA have this week released their latest Game Ready driver update; not a glamourous headline, but one which will please owners of GeForce hardware looking to play this week's new games and in-game content updates.

The GeForce Game Ready 519.95 - WHQL drivers are the ideal companions for GeForce gamers playing IO Interactive's Hitman 3 this weekend. The game's developers have just dropped the Year 2 update, which brings with it not only real-time ray tracing support but also compatibility with DLSS and AMD FSR 1.0 as forms of Adaptive Supersampling (of which DLSS is of course an NVIDIA RTX exclusive). If you're hankering for some assassination action this weekend then updating your drivers comes highly recommended.

GeForce Game Ready drivers were a significant talking point for NVIDIA at Computex 2022

Rebellion's Sniper Elite franchise has had surprising longevity for one with a fairly simple gameplay premise. Its fifth major iteration launches on Thursday, and just like every other PC first-person shooter in existence you'll want the best possible drivers for a hassle-free experience. NVIDIA's new Game |Ready driver serves just that purpose.

Finally, and shifting tone significantly, the Game Ready 519.95 drivers also bring early support for My Time at Sandrock, a whimsical community building game that enters Steam Early Access this week. The title is being developed and published by indie studio Pathea Games, and it's always great to see the big names in technology extending a helping hand to a team that will already be facing an enormous up-hill task in creating a game for today's market.

This driver release also brings to bear a handful of fixes for niggling issues recently experienced by GeForce owners, particularly those using Adobe Premier Pro, and the driver notes identify further bugs that should be on the short-list for squashing in an upcoming driver release.

You can download the GeForce Game Ready 519.95 - WHQL drivers from geforce.com/drivers and selecting your system configuration, or by using the GeForce Experience App's Live Update feature. It's compatible with 64-bit versions of Windows 10 and 11, and GPUs as far back as the GTX 900-series (Maxwell).
