Nvidia has dropped yet another new graphics card driver. It’s getting a big exhausting now. This particular GeForce 419.35 GPU driver heralds Game Ready support for Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, Devil May Cry 5 and Apex Legends.
All big games and all of them should also run better with this latest driver, bringing last-minute performance tweaks and bug fixes to ensure optimal gaming experiences at launch (or after launch, in the case of Apex).
There are also fixes for Apex Legends crashes to desktop and pixelated corruption in Hitman 2. You will want to keep an eye out for the current issues though, which includes The Division 2 becoming unresponsive when HDR options are toggled and causing Star Citizen to flicker and crash. If either of these issues sounds like something that could affect you then perhaps give this latest driver a miss for now.
Nvidia has also sort of reannounced its Triple Threat game bundle. There have been variations of this kicking around for a while now but you can copies of Metro Exodus, Anthem and Battlefield V if you buy a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti or RTX 2080 graphics card. If you’re not feeling quite so flush, GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2070 sales come with a choice of two of these games. Hardly The Division 2, Resident Evil 2, and Devil May Cry 5, is it? But, a bonus is a bonus.
Nvidia hasn’t exactly been overly smart with its game partnerships lately. Battlefield V can be had for about the price of a packet of crisps these days, Anthem has flopped harder than Kevin Spacey’s acting career, and there’s still frothy-mouthed rage that Metro Exodus is exclusive to the Epic Games Store. Still, this tasty trio are yours if you spend upwards of $800 on a GeForce graphics card.
Anyway, here are the list of known issues and fixes as of this latest driver, so do be sure to give it a glance before installing.
