NVIDIA Releases GeForce 388.71 Game Ready Drivers for PUBG

NVIDIA is releasing a new driver set version 388.71 WHQL for GeForce video cards. This update brings Game Ready driver support for BlueHole Inc’s PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds. PUBG as it is often called, is now available as a version 1.0 release for the PC. This is good news for fans looking for a more optimal gaming experience with their NVIDIA graphics card. PUBG is quite notorious for its shoddy optimization, so a Game Ready driver ensures that players are getting the most of whatever optimization is possible so far.

PUBG leaves the Early Access Steam designation which it has worn for the past several months. Within that time, the game has amassed the biggest game following in the world, and currently sits at the top of Steam’s player count list. Just within the time of writing this article alone, PUBG has 1,302,121 concurent players with a peak of 2,699,268. The second game on Steam’s list of popularity, Valve’s DOTA 2, is not even reach half that number.
