Nvidia 430.86 WHQL driver optimizes for Quake RTX; Game Ready and Studio both available

As it makes its presence known at Computex 2019 in Taipei, back home, Nvidia today released its WHQL-certified 430.86 drivers for both the Game Ready and Studio branches. It's worth noting, however, that for this particular release the two branches are identical.

Gamers can expect optimal experience for Assetto Corsa Competizione, which is scheduled to be out of Early Access on May 29. Along with that, there's Quake RTX which the company will be releasing, for free, on June 6. If you own Quake II, you will also be able to play multiplayer with the RTX version.

Creators, on the other hand, get optimal experience for "the latest releases of top creative apps," such as Autodesk Maya 2019, 3ds Max 2020, Arnold 5.3.1.0, Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve
16, and Daz 3D Daz Studio.

Also included in this release is G-Sync Compatible support for a number of monitors, and support for the newly-released Oculus Rift S and HTC Vive Pro Eye VR headsets. Here are the monitors that gain the G-Sync Compatible tag with this release, for the two branches, with complete list available here:
