Today Nvidia released a driver update designed to supercharge GeForce performance in DirectX 12 games.
"By refining the code in our own driver, and working side-by-side with game developers, Nvidia has delivered performance increases by an average of 16% across DirectX 12 titles," senior PR manager Brian Burke said. Here are some specific examples Nvidia passed along:
- Ashes of the Singularity - 9%
- Gears of War 4 - 10%
- Hitman - 23%
- Rise of the Tomb Raider - 33%
- Tom Clancy's The Division - 4%
Nvidia's new WHQL-certified driver also unlocks support for the just released GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, which is currently the leading hardware for 4K gaming. It also adds support for Nvidia's Ansel screenshot technology to the newly released Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
