And as an additional verification of quality, every Game Ready Driver is WHQL-certified by Microsoft.


Middle-earth: Shadow of War Supports NVIDIA Ansel on Launch Day!

Another important aspect of NVIDIA Game Ready drivers is that at they are often used as a delivery mechanism to add new features for our GeForce users. This Game Ready driver adds support for NVIDIA Ansel to Middle-earth: Shadow of War. You may recall that at Gamescom NVIDIA, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Monolith Productions, announced they are collaborating on the PC version of Middle-earth: Shadow of War. NVIDIA worked with Monolith to add NVIDIA Ansel other advanced PC features, such as HDR, which creates a wider range of brightness, making the game more lifelike and immersive.

Forza Motorsport 7 Sees Performance Improvements of up to 25%

Our driver team’s job does not end once a game launches. They work tirelessly to continue improving performance even after a game launches. The fruits of their labor can be seen with the performance improvements in Forza Motorsport 7, which exhibits performance improvements between 15 and 25 percent, depending on the GPU and configuration you are testing.


Game Ready for Arktika.1 in VR

Having the best possible quality for a game at launch is important, and it becomes even more important in VR titles. Gameplay issues or bugs can break immersion and ruin a VR experience. Our long-running Game Ready driver program delivers the best possible experience by optimizing performance and latency, which is especially important for smooth, stutter-free Virtual Reality gameplay.


Today’s game Ready Driver will provide the best VR experience for Arktika 1. From the creators of the Metro series comes a new vision of the apocalypse. Arktika.1 is a highly immersive, action-packed, first-person shooter designed exclusively for Oculus Touch
