NVIDIA has released a new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 522.25 WHQL driver is optimized for Gotham Knights, Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, and Dakar Desert Rally.
Furthermore, this driver features significant DirectX 12 performance optimizations which can dramatically improve performance for GeForce 30 Series GPUs. For those wondering, I did not find any improvements on the RTX 4090. Thus, I don’t know whether these performance gains are only for the older RTX GPUs.
You can download this new driver from here. Below you can also find its complete changelog.

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.
