As more high-profile games near their release dates, Nvidia has put forth a new graphics driver aimed at providing support for them. The WHQL-certified 457.30 Game Ready driver has support for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War (November 13), Assassin's Creed Valhalla (November 10), and Godfall (November 12).
In addition to those, Nvidia has also implemented Reflex support for Destiny 2, promising lower input latency by up to 49% in the Bungie title. The SLI profile for Black Desert has been also updated, while four monitors have received G-Sync compatibility validation, them being Acer CP3271U V, ASUS XG27AQ, MSI MAG274QRF, and Xiaomi Mi 245 HF.
Several issues have been fixed in this release also:
- [Warzone][RTX 30 series]: Users may see a drop in performance during gameplay.
- [Notebook]: The internal panel flashes upon resume from sleep mode or from display off.
