NVIDIA has released its new GeForce Game Ready 442.59 WHQL driver, which delivers day-one optimizations and enhancements for Call of Duty: Warzone.

“To experience Warzone at its very best, our new Game Ready Driver brings new updates for your GPU, ensuring that you can reach 144 FPS with GeForce RTX,” wrote NVIDIA.

Players will need a GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER graphics card, Intel i7-9700K or AMD Ryzen 2700X processor, and 16 GB of memory to run Call of Duty: Warzone at the Ultra setting, while the Minimum setting requires a GeForce GTX 670 or 1650 GPU, Intel Core i3-4340 or AMD FX-6300 CPU, and 8 GB of RAM.

Gamers are encouraged to test out NVIDIA’s Highlights feature, which will automatically capture and record kills, match-winning plays, and other key moments. “To enable Highlights, load GeForce Experience before you boot Warzone, enter the settings, and ensure ‘In-Game Overlay’ is on,” explained NVIDIA. “Then load Warzone, and you’ll be promoted to activate Highlights.”

Call of Duty: Warzone is now available for download on Battle.net. For a a full list of fixes in the GeForce Game Ready 442.59 WHQL driver, check out the release notes found here.
