NVIDIA GeForce 344.48 WHQL Driver – Adds DSR Support For Various GPUs, Introduces New SLI Profiles

NVIDIA has released a new WHQL driver for its graphics cards. According to its release notes, this driver adds support for the recently announced DSR feature (which is basically a downsampling method) to GeForce GTX 400, 500, 600, 700 and 900 Series GeForce GTX graphics cards. In addition, NVIDIA has introduced a number of SLI profiles (though there is still none for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor).

Those interested can download these new drivers from here.

And here are the release notes:

“These Game Ready drivers optimize your experience in forthcoming games like Civilization: Beyond Earth and Lords Of The Fallen, and enable NVIDIA Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR) technology on Fermi and Kepler GeForce GTX 500, 600 and 700 Series desktop graphics cards. In addition, the new Game Ready drivers add nearly two-dozen profiles for SLI and 3D Vision systems, as well as other changes and updates.

Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR) For Fermi & Kepler GeForce GTX Desktop GPUs

Alongside our record-breaking, critically-acclaimed GeForce GTX 980 and 970 graphics cards, we introduced a new software feature that enables gamers to enjoy 4K-quality graphics on any HD screen. Called Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR), the tech is built into GeForce Experience’s game setting recommendations, allowing players to dramatically increase image quality with a single click. How it works is simple: compatible games are rendered at a higher, more detailed resolution, and the image is intelligently shrunk back down to the resolution of your monitor using a custom-made filter, giving you up to 4K-quality graphics on your screen.

With the new Game Ready drivers installed, you can now use this exciting, easy to use feature on GeForce GTX 500, 600, 700 and 900 Series GeForce GTX graphics cards.

As always, we’ve worked closely with a number of developers to enable SLI in their games and game engines, and we continue to work with Monolith on Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. Please note, profiles require the latest game update in addition to the latest driver, so please ensure you have automatic patching enabled in Steam.
