14 Comments

Hot on the heels of the launch of Cyberpunk 2077, Nvidia has released its latest Game Ready Driver for its GeForce GPUs to help give you the best performance possible in 2020's most-anticipated release.

Although Cyberpunk 2077 has some technical issues, not all of which have been purged by the game's day one patch, the latest driver from Nvidia should help smooth things over. In addition to optimized driver settings, the update also adds Cyberpunk 2077 to GeForce Experience, giving you access to one-click optimizations based on your preferred resolution and installed hardware.

The update also improves DLSS support within the game, with Nvidia claiming at least 60% better performance with DLSS turned on. DLSS uses AI to upscale the game from a lower resolution with great results and should definitely be used if you're planning to make us of Cyberpunk's extensive ray tracing settings.

The driver also adds optimizations for Minecraft RTX, which left beta this week and is officially available for download on the Windows 10 version of the game. Five new monitors have also been added to Nvidia's growing list of G-Sync compatible displays, letting you use the setting reliably with FreeSync-equipped monitors. The five new additions are:

  • Acer XV242Y
  • Acer XB273U NV
  • Gigabyte FI27Q-X
  • MSI MAG274R
  • Philips 275M8RZ

A host of new games have also been added to GeForce Experience for easy optimizations, with the full list below. If you're still looking for a way to download the 460.79 driver, you can download it directly from Nvidia's website here or find it waiting in GeForce Experience.
