Nvidia 456.55 WHQL driver is Game Ready for Star Wars: Squadrons

The previous mid-month graphics driver update from Nvidia brought in a huge number of new features and changes coinciding with its RTX 3080 launch. Today, the company delivered another update, WHQL-certified 456.55 Game Ready driver, though it's quite light on the features compared to last time.

EA's upcoming space combat title Star Wars: Squadrons receives Game Ready status with this driver, though it's unclear what exactly are the improvements players can expect. The game is slated to launch later this week on October 2, arriving with both HOTAS and VR support.

Moreover, the newly made available Nvidia Reflex technology that promises reduced system latency in competitive titles is now available for Call of Duty: Warzone and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. As seen on the Nvidia-provided chart below, with Reflex on, owners of last-generation Nvidia graphics cards will benefit the most from the technology.

Here are the included fixes in this release:

  • [Omniverse 2020.2.4496]: Corruption occurs after switching from RTX Real-Time to RTX PathTraced renderer. [200649160]
  • [Vulkan games]: The GeForce Experience> Performance > Render Latency setting sometimes sticks at 0 on Vulkan games. [3129618]
