NVIDIA just released the GeForce 522.25 WHQL Game Ready drivers. These are the first official drivers with support for the new GeForce RTX 4090 “Ada” graphics card, and the CUDA 11.8 compute language. The drivers also fix a handful of issues. Lower performance observed in “Teardown” when MSI Afterburner overlay is used; this has been fixed. Texture corruption noticed in “Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands” after extended gameplay, has been fixed. Unreal Engine 5.1 crashing when enabling path-tracing in some drivers has been fixed. Game optimizations were added for Gotham Knights, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, and Dakar Desert Rally.

Besides RTX 4090, these drivers officially introduce support for DLSS 3, which works only on RTX 40-series (or later) GPUs, as it needs the Optical Flow Accelerator hardware component. Day-zero support is added for a number of titles, including A Plague Tale: Requiem, Justice, Loopmancer, F1 22, Bright Memory: Infinite, SUPER PEOPLE, Microsoft Flight Simulator, and Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered. NVIDIA is also said to have improved the performance of DirectX 12 applications across the board on RTX 30-series “Ampere” graphics cards.
