NVIDIA has released a special driver to celebrate the world’s largest gaming expo, and it’s packed with exciting new features. The Gamescom Game Ready Driver not only improves the performance of five popular titles but also introduces ultra-low latency and integer scaling options, as well as a new Freestyle filter.

Software optimizations for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade, and World War Z have increased framerates by up to 23% compared to the previous driver (431.60). A new Ultra-Low Latency Mode allows for faster input response, while Integer Scaling helps retro, pixel-art titles look their best on higher-resolution displays.

NVIDIA Freestyle also gains a new sharpening option that looks and performs better than the “Detail” filter. Last but not least, the Gamescom drivers adds support for three additional G-SYNC Compatible displays, 30-bit color support, and Optimal Playable Settings (OPS) for many new games.

We hope you have a great time gaming on the new GeForce Game Ready 436.02 WHQL drivers, our 105th set of Game Ready drivers hand-crafted over the past 5 years. To install, head on over to the GeForce Experience Drivers tab, starting at 6am PT on August 20th.
