Nvidia 456.71 WHQL driver has support for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War beta

Nvidia's latest graphics driver release, WHQL 456.71, is focusing on providing Game Ready optimizations for the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War PC beta and adding Nvidia Reflex support to the shooter.

The company didn't go into detail about the exact performance benefits users will gain from this driver when playing the Cold War beta, but it is a recommended install for all Nvidia graphics card users keen on jumping in. The beta is slated to kick off next week on October 15 for those with early access.

Moreover, the newly introduced Reflex technology is said to reduce input latency in competitive titles, and it also arrived to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and its Warzone portion with the 456.55 driver suite from the previous week.

Only three fixed issues show up in this release:

  • [Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition]: Enabling Hardware-accelerated GPU Scheduling results in lower frame rate. [3129590]
