Nvidia’s GeForce Drivers for DirectX 12 Receive WHQL Certification
Gabriel Roşu / 1 year ago
We are all excited about the new Windows 10 and DirectX 12 features and it looks like Nvidia wants us to experience only the best once Windows 10 is officially launched. The company claims it understands how important it is to experience only the best out of games, so it went on to create the Game Ready drivers which get a new update every time a major title is released.
“We feel the same way about our graphics. We don’t want gamers beta testing our work when they play their games for the first time. So we created GeForce Game Ready drivers.” Nvidia posted on their blog.
This is why Nvidia worked closely with Microsoft and other Game Developers that focus on making or moving their games on the new API. Nvidia now has the first WHQL certified drivers, putting it a step forward ahead of AMD. Why? Because, a Windows Hardware Qualification Lab certification is given out once Microsoft can confirm that the drivers are 100% ready for its OS.
“As the launch of Windows 10 and DirectX 12 nears, our GeForce drivers have taken a major step forward: WHQL certification has arrived.”
What this means is that no major issues are encountered when the driver is installed and used in a variety of Windows-based application requiring graphical rendering, but for short, it means Windows certifies your games work perfectly as far as they are concerned.
Nvidia offers already offers support for DirectX 12 API on their Maxwell and Kepler GPU architectures and states that Fermi will receive support later on as well. Eager to take your Titan or GTX 980 for a DirectX 12 spin? Then get your DirectX 12 certified drivers from here.
