NVIDIA has released its GeForce Game Ready 456.55 WHQL driver. This driver introduces support for NVIDIA Reflex (green team’s suite of latency-reducing technologies) in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It also adds support for EA Motive’s action starfighter simulation, Star Wars: Squadrons, which releases this Friday (October 2).

“NVIDIA Reflex is a revolutionary suite of GPU, G-SYNC display, and in-game technologies that measure and reduce system latency in competitive titles,” the company wrote. “With the release of our new Game Ready Driver, and a new game update at 10pm PT on September 28, users with GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX 900 Series-and-newer GPUs can reduce system latency in Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.”
