NVIDIA is introducing its latest Game Ready Driver which will support a myriad of new tech features and is the launch driver for the new GeForce GTX 1660 Super GPUs that will be introduced on the same day.

NVIDIA’s Game Ready Drivers are recognized as delivering a robust, reliable gaming experience to hundreds of AAA games. With this latest Game Ready Driver, NVIDIA has integrated an improved image-sharpening filter in the NVIDIA Control Panel for even faster performance and support for all DirectX 9, 11 and 12 games. It has adjustable sharpening sliders and offers a per-game profile, so gamers can custom tailor the level of sharpness for each of their favorite games

The NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency (NULL) mode has been enhanced with support for G-SYNC variable rate technology support, so gamers can enjoy the tear-free visuals provided by G-SYNC, along with the benefit of quick response time that lower latency provides in games. Gamers no longer have to choose between a responsive or tear-free gaming experience — with the latest Game Ready Drivers and a G-SYNC display, they can have both.  

ReShade Filters Come to GeForce Experience

With over 3 million downloads last year, ReShade benefits from a vibrant modding community that creates amazing post-processing shaders for PC gaming. With this latest Game Ready Driver and GeForce Experience update, GeForce gamers can tap into hundreds of ReShade filters and easily apply them in their favorite games using Freestyle or Ansel

  • Acer VG272X 
  • AOC 27G2G4 
  • ASUS XG279Q 
  • Dell AW2720HF 
  • Lenovo Y27Q-20

 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”.  For a full listing of G-SYNC Compatible displays, please click here
