NVIDIA has released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 461.92 WHQL driver is a Game Ready driver for Overwatch as it adds official support for NVIDIA Reflex (which is available on the PTS).
In addition, this driver fixes a number of bugs and issues. For instance, it fixes pixelated black dots or artifacts on characters’ skin in Red Dead Redemption 2. It also resolves some blue-screen crashes that could occur when connecting/disconnecting to/from the Samsung 8K TV. Additionally, it brings shader cache optimizations to reduce intermittent stutter on some PC configurations.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
