With the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War set for November 13th, we daresay that many of you reading this are more than a little excited to try it out! – I certainly know that I am! – Well, in that regard, whenever there is a major gaming release, there’s often a GPU driver update to accompany it and, for Nvidia owners, that’s certainly the case here.
Yes, the latest Nvidia GeForce Experience drivers are out now and, if you plan to throw the rest of the month into grinding the latest Call of Duty, it’s probably a good idea that you put in the effort to update to the latest version because they’re undoubtedly going to prove more than a little useful!
In announcing the news, Nvidia has said:

‘Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’ is Loaded with NVIDIA Tech
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War is absolutely full of NVIDIA tech, including:
‘Destiny 2’ Gets More Responsive with NVIDIA Reflex
NVIDIA Reflex is a revolutionary suite of GPU, G-SYNC display, and in-game technologies that measure and reduce system latency in competitive titles. With the release of our new Game Ready Driver, and a Destiny 2 game update, players of Bungie’s co-op and competitive game can improve responsiveness by up to 49%. Look for NVIDIA Reflex to be supported by Destiny 2 on November the 10th.
Four New G-SYNC Compatible Displays
The G-SYNC Compatible program expands the G-SYNC ecosystem and aims to bring consistency and educate consumers on which displays will provide a good entry level variable refresh rate (VRR) experience.
The newly-validated monitors are the Acer CP3271U V, Asus XG27AQ, MSI MAG274QR and Xiaomi Mi 245 HF, giving gamers even more choice when searching for a great gaming display.
Under the G-SYNC Compatible program, NVIDIA works with monitor OEMs to validate the experience on monitors that support the AdaptiveSync protocol. Those that pass are designated as “G-SYNC Compatible”. With today’s additions, the list now totals 98. For a full listing of G-SYNC Compatible displays, please click here.
