NVIDIA released a new Game Ready driver for its GeForce graphics cards. Version 536.99 is optimized for Baldur's Gate 3, the game dominating the conversation on PC thanks to its continuous record breaking performance (as well as critical acclaim).
Baldur's Gate 3 offers support for both DLSS 2 (Super Resolution) and DLAA. According to NVIDIA, GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs can improve performance by up to 93% on average with DLSS.
The RTX 4060Ti sees an even bigger jump of almost 120% (from 35.5 FPS to 77.9 FPS) at 4K resolution, maximum settings and DLSS performance. The improvement percentage keeps shrinking slightly upwards: the RTX 4070 sees a performance increase of 106%, jumping from 62.9 FPS to almost 130 FPS; RTX 4080 runs 100% faster (from 96.4 FPS to 193.4 FPS); and the RTX 4090 actually gets "only" a 43.7% faster frame rate, although that's enough to get it to almost 215 FPS. With top-end GPUs, it might be better to use DLAA instead.
This GeForce Game Ready driver is also optimized for two games that will be released next week. The first is Gord, a dark fantasy adventure/single player strategy game created by a few former CD Projekt RED developers. Gord will be released on August 17th (priced at €34.99) and supports NVIDIA DLSS 2.
The other game is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Due for release on August 18th for €35.09, it is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game based on the famous franchise and developed by Sumo Digital. Texas Chainsaw Massacre also supports DLSS 2.
NVIDIA confirmed two other games with DLSS 2 support: Deadlink, a cyberpunk first-person shooter with roguelite elements out now on Steam, and SPRAWL, a retro hardcore first-person shooter. SPRAWL will be released later this month on Steam and also supports DLAA.
As usual with all GeForce Game Ready driver releases, the official changelog offers an overview of the fixed bugs.
