Nvidia has launched a new set of GeForce WHQL-certified graphics card drivers, version 362.00, that bring support for a couple of games that are just about to hit PC.
The biggest game to be supported in these drivers is Far Cry Primal, which was released today on PC after hitting the consoles last week. The GeForce 362.00 drivers support all the necessary optimizations for a good gaming experience, including an SLI profile.
These new drivers also bring performance optimizations for Gears of War: Ultimate Edition, which also launched today on PC. As a remaster of the original Gears of War, this game brings new graphical effects, such as Nvidia HBAO+ and support for 4K resolutions. Ultimate Edition is built using DirectX 12, so it requires Windows 10, and Nvidia suggests a GTX 980 Ti to play at 4K.
The 362.00 drivers include optimizations for the latest Dying Light update as well. This update introduces a new Nvidia-specific graphical effect called Percentage Closer Soft Shadows (PCSS), which has already been used in games like Grand Theft Auto V. Grabbing this new driver ensures that gameplay remains smooth while PCSS is enabled.
As usual, you can download the latest Nvidia drivers automatically through GeForce Experience, or alternatively you can grab a manual installer from our driver download section here.
