by on09 July 2020

Brings a new Game Ready driver

Nvidia has announced its latest game bundle which includes free copies of the PC version of Death Stranding game to those that buy Geforce RTX 20 series graphics cards, which also includes Super versions, as well as both desktop and notebooks based on these cards from partners. Nvidia also released a new Game Ready driver for upcoming games, Death Stranding, F1 2020, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

In case you missed it earlier, Kojima's Death Stranding game was quite a hit and it is coming to the PC on July 14th, with plenty of improvements including the PC-exclusive photo mode, as well as support for unlocked frame rate, and ultra-wide resolution monitors.

As announced earlier, the game will support Nvidia DLSS 2.0, a feature that Nvidia calls "a big leap in AI rendering". Supported on Geforce RTX series GPUs and using Tensor cores, DLSS 2.0 will bring several enhancements compared to the first generation, including better image quality, better scaling across all RTX series GPUs and resolutions, a single network for all games, and customizable options, allowing users to pick between three image quality modes, quality, balanced and performance.

The new Nvidia "Embark on Your Journey" game bundle covers purchases from July 9th to August 31st and might end up earlier if Nvidia runs out of codes. Of course, it is limited to certain regions and select Nvidia partners so you might want to check the list before buying.

As noted, the PC version of Death Stranding has been delayed from June 2nd to July 14th.

The new driver brings support for new games

Nvidia has also released the new Geforce 451.67 WHQL Game Ready driver which brings support for some of the upcoming games, including Death Stranding, F1 2020, and Horizon Zero Dawn.

It also adds support for DLSS 2.0 in Death Stranding, as well as fixes several bugs. The new driver also adds new G-Sync Compatible monitors, including Dell S2721HGF, Dell S2721DGF, and Lenovo G25-10.

According to the release notes, it also adds a dozen of games to the Geforce Experience OPS (one-click optimal settings), including Darksburg, Disintegration, Fishing Planet, House Flipper, Justice RTX, Outer Wilds, Persona 4 Golden, Pistol Whip, SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated, and Trackmania.
