NVIDIA has released its GeForce Game Ready 456.71 WHQL driver, which adds support for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War’s PC beta. The beta begins on October 15 for those who pre-ordered the game digitally, but an open beta will also be available from Saturday, October 17 to Monday, October 19.

The GeForce Game Ready 456.71 WHQL driver also enables NVIDIA Reflex for the Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War PC beta. This is a suite of GPU, G-SYNC display, and software technologies for measuring and reducing latency.

“With NVIDIA Reflex’s faster response times, shot accuracy is improved, you can react to enemy actions faster, and peeker’s advantage is reduced or even nullified,” explains NVIDIA. “For the full rundown, check out our comprehensive NVIDIA Reflex guide. Additionally, see how NVIDIA Reflex helps in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Warzone, and further reduce system latency by following our system latency optimization guide.”
