It has been some time since Nvidia released a graphics driver, but ending the long wait, the company today put forth the GeForce Game Ready 445.87 WHQL driver. This release delivers optimizations and support for the recently announced Minecraft with RTX Beta, the remasters of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign and Saints Row: The Third, as well as SnowRunner.

The ray tracing-powered Minecraft beta kicks off tomorrow, April 16, while the Modern Warfare 2 Remastered Campaign and Saints Row: The Third remasters are coming to PC on April 30 and May 22, respectively. Lastly, SnowRunner is sliding in on April 28. Nvidia is recommending today's 445.87 WHQL driver to those who will be picking up any of the aforementioned games for optimal performance.
