Nvidia has released its latest Game Ready Windows WHQL driver version 517.48 today. The new driver brings support for Overwatch 2 which will launch soon. The new driver also adds support for Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) image upscaling to Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Aside from these gaming optimizations and changes, the new driver package also brings the latest GeForce Experience (GFE) version which fixes the various performance related issues that have been plaguing Nvidia based systems that are running the new Windows 11 22H2 feature update.
