Nvidia 526.86 WHQL Drivers Now Actually Game Ready for CoD: MW II

NVIDIA has released the latest GeForce 526.86 WHQL drivers, and about time too, as these drivers promise to deliver a much more stable gaming experience for those of you playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. The previous “game ready” drivers were less than ideal, resulted in image corruption issues and had several bugs with both DLSS and Reflex. There’s also a fix for the random crashing in Call of Duty: Vanguard.

Of course, there are a good few other fixes in this update too, such as the resolution of a BSOD issue with VTube Studio, or the GPU getting stuck in the P0 power state after exiting certain games. Rainbow-like artefacts in Forza Horizon 5 in some PC configurations are now fixed too. Honestly, it’s one of the better-looking updates I’ve seen in a while, and it fixes some pretty sweeping issues.

It’s strongly recommended you update your drivers for Call of Duty though, and you can download them manually here, or update them via Geforce Experience.

  • [Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II] Flashing corruption can be seen randomly while playing the game.
