Nvidia’s getting a bit too rapid with its graphics driver updates these days. In fact, we’d quite like them to slow down. It’s only been a few a matter of days since the GeForce 416.81 driver and now the GeForce 416.94 WHQL GPU driver is ready and waiting for GeForce owners to download.
The GeForce 416.94 is the official launch driver for Battlefield V, including all the day one Game Ready optimisations and assorted guff. If you’re planning to play BF5, this is the driver you’ll be wanting to have.
It’s not all about DICE’s shooter though. A couple of other big titles have released this week and Nvidia has provided official graphics card driver support for the pair of them - Fallout 76 and Hitman 2. We’ve already benchmarked both of those games on Nvidia graphics cards so, er, hopefully not too much has changed.
As it’s only been a handful of days, any other changes are actually few and far between for the 416.94 graphics card driver. There are 3D Vision profiles for both Fallout 76 and Hitman 2 if you’re still clinging onto a 3D monitor, as well as a single solitary fix - the GeForce GTX 780 should no longer lag while engaging in any desktop activity.
The list of known issues is a little longer, so just have a quick glance down these before you hurry and download the Battlefield V recommended driver.
