NVIDIA has released the GeForce 497.09 Game Ready drivers. These introduce launch-day optimization for “Icarus,” including support for NVIDIA DLSS, and RTX ray-traced global illumination (RTX-GI). The drivers also add optimization for “Chorus,” including DLSS support; and “Halo Infinite.” Six new displays receive NVIDIA G-SYNC support. Among the fixes released with these drivers are TDR or system crashes with “DOOM Eternal” and RDR2, a display corruption with ye olde “DOOM 3 BFG Edition,” extreme gamma/contrast issues with YouTube on hardware-accelerated web-browsers; NVIDIA Image Scaling resolutions not correctly appearing in-game after a driver update; and incompatibilities between Adaptive Sync and G-SYNC.
A curious addition with these drivers is support for the GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB graphics card. We’ve been hearing reports of NVIDIA resurrecting the RTX 2060 “Turing” with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory to target the 1080p gaming crowd; and these drivers confirm it. The 12 GB SKU could be achieved by pairing the “TU106″ GPU with 12 GB of memory across its 192-bit wide memory interface.
