Following on from the earlier release of NVIDIA GeForce WHQL Drivers for Windows 10 comes a new set of drivers for those on Windows 7/8.1, in anticipation of the release of one of the hottest games of 2015.

The GeForce 352.86 Game Ready Drivers are the latest in a series of Game Ready Day 0 drivers made available by NVIDIA which preempt the release of a major Triple-A title. The latest title in question, as if you didn't already know, is CD Projekt RED's The Witcher 2: The Wild Hunt - a title sure to test even the mightiest of GPUs. In keeping with the axoim of 'every little helps', these Game Ready drivers aim to give you the best possible launch day performance from your NVIDIA GPU, whether it houses the latest Maxwell-based GPU or even older Kepler and Fermi models.

Although small performance tweaks are likely in the driver package the headline improvements for 352.86 are improved SLI support and one-click optimisation options through GeForce Experience. The former is quite straightforward, whilst the latter is allows the seleciton of a Witcher 3 graphics quality profile based on NVIDIA's analysis of your system capabilities. From that baseline you can tweak you personal settings as you see fit.
