Nvidia 431.36 WHQL Game Ready driver adds support for RTX Super cards

Nvidia has released a new version of its graphics drivers for Windows, bringing the version number up to 431.36. The highlight of the release is the added support for the new Super GPUs in the RTX lineup, since the RTX 2060 Super and 2070 Super are both launching today. The new cards offer significant performance improvements over the original RTX lineup, bringing the framerates closer to those you'd find on previous GTX cards.

In addition to the new hardware support, the latest driver improves performance in some games. Metro Exodus should get around 10.5% better performance than with the last Game Ready driver; Strange Brigade gets improvements of around 7.7%; Tom Clancy's The Division 2 gets around 3.6% better performance. The driver also updates the SLI profile for F1 2019.

Nvidia is also continuing to add more G-Sync Compatible displays to the list. Three new monitors are supported as of today:

  • LG 34GL750
  • HP 25mx
  • HP Omen X 25f
