NVIDIA GeForce 441.87 WHQL CES 2020 driver released, Wolfenstein: Youngblood RTX Patch coming this week

NVIDIA has released a new major driver for its graphics cards. According to the release, the NVIDIA GeForce 441.87 WHQL driver, also known as CES 2020 driver, adds official support for Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s real-time ray tracing effects.

MachineGames will release the RTX patch for Wolfenstein: Youngblood later this week. The team will be using Ray Tracing in order to enhance the game’s reflections. Furthermore, the game will support DLSS. Once the patch is out, we’ll be sure to benchmark both RTX and DLSS.

The NVIDIA GeForce 441.87 WHQL driver also introduces Variable Rate Super Sampling. Variable Rate Super Sampling (VRSS) is a new technique to improve image quality in VR games which uses NVIDIA Variable Rate Shading (VRS) to dynamically apply up to 8x super sampling to the center of the VR display when GPU headroom is available.

Moreover, NVIDIA introduced a new Maximum Framerate Setting into the NVIDIA Control Panel. Use the maximum frame rate setting to set the max framerate a 3D application or game can render.

Last but not least, this driver comes with an improved Image Sharpening, as well as new Freestyle Filters.
