Nvidia GeForce 440.97 WHQL Game Ready Driver Released
Peter Donnell / 1 year ago
The latest Nvidia GeForce Game Ready Driver was released this week. If you’re planning on playing this month’s big releases, it’s certainly worth updating your drivers first. The drive brings big improvements to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, as well as The Outer Worlds. Furthermore, it’ll add the ability to use G-SYNC on OpenGL and Vulkan games, as well as a few other minor bug fixes and patches. Wider support for G-Sync is certainly one of the most welcome aspects of this update though.
