In addition to the three titles, the driver introduces an up to 7% performance boost for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds for the GTX 10-Series graphics cards. As the impact of these improvements depends on the user's hardware and graphics settings, Nvidia has compiled a handy chart to give players an idea of what to expect; do note, however, that the system these cards were tested on had an Intel Core i7-7820X @ 3.6GHz, 32GB of DDR4 2666Mhz RAM, and ran Windows 10:
