NVIDIA has released the GeForce 416.94 WHQL “Game Ready” drivers. These come optimized for “Fallout 76,” “Hitman 2,” and “Battlefield V.” NVIDIA re-listing Battlefied V, a game it already optimized for with v416.81 could mean the company may have improved performance for the game. NVIDIA confirmed that a game patch will drop “soon” through Origin, which will add NVIDIA RTX support, more so because Microsoft has resumed rolling out Windows 10 1809. The drivers also add 3D Vision profiles for “Hitman 2″ and “Fallout 76.” A minor bug that caused lagging on Windows desktop with GeForce GTX 780 has also been fixed.

You can download the new GeForce 416.94 WHQL “Game Ready” drivers through GeForce Experience or via GeForce.com.
