Game Performance Page 2

We are comparing both driver sets apples-to-apples on a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER video card.

Hitman 2

In Hitman 2 we are running the game at the highest in-game settings at 1440p. We are running the built-in benchmark in the Miami run.  There’s a slight difference in performance here, but this time it seems to favor the newer NVIDIA Studio Driver.  This is a little bit more significant than the Metro Exodus result.  In this game, the Studio Driver is 1% faster.  It is overall small though, and would not be noticed while gaming.  It does show that the Studio Driver is not slowing the game down.   

Far Cry 5

In Far Cry 5, we are running the game at 1440p with the highest in-game settings.  We are using the built-in benchmark.  In this game, both drivers are exactly the same performance at 96 FPS, no difference at all.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided

In Deus Ex Mankind Divided we are running the game at 1440p with the highest in-game settings.  We are using the built-in benchmark.  Similar to Hitman 2 we see a slight performance difference, again favoring the newer NVIDIA Studio Driver.  This is once again a 1% performance difference. 

In summary, all the gaming results prove that the NVIDIA Studio Driver is not harming performance in games.  You won’t lose performance over the GeForce Game Ready driver in gaming by using this driver.
