NVIDIA GeForce 451.67 WHQL driver released, optimized for Death Stranding & Horizon Zero Dawn

NVIDIA has just released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 451.67 WHQL driver is optimized for Death Stranding, F1 2020 and Horizon Zero Dawn.

Going into more details, the NVIDIA GeForce 451.67 WHQL driver provides the latest performance optimizations, profiles, and bug fixes for Death Stranding. Death Stranding will support DLSS 2.0 from the get-go, and NVIDIA recommends using this driver.

Moreover, this driver fixes the refresh rate of 144Hz-capable HDMI displays that could not be set above 120Hz. It also resolves some random crashes in Detroit: Become Human. Additionally, it fixes some noise issues that would appear in Adobe Premiere when users made adjustments in Lumetri color panel.

Naturally this driver supports all the features of the previous version. Thus, you can expect full support of DirectX 12 Ultimate, Vulkan 1.2 and CUDA 11.0. There is also full support for hardware-accelerated GPU Scheduling. Not only that, but NVIDIA has added some security updates for driver components.
