A few days ago, NVIDIA released a brand new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready 531.18 WHQL driver offers optimal experience in Atomic Heart and the closed Beta of THE FINALS.
Furthermore, this new driver enables RTX Video Super Resolution. By using this tech, RTX owners can enhance low-quality videos when viewed on Google Chrome or Edge. This new feature is only available for the RTX30 and RTX40 series. Also note that it will significantly increase your GPU usage/utilization.
The NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready 531.18 WHQL driver also comes with some game fixes. For instance, it addresses some occasional stability issues in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It also resolves some freeze issues that could occur in Forza Horizon 4 after 15-30 minutes of gameplay. And lastly, it officially enables reBAR for Dead Space Remake.
As always, you can download the 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.
