Nvidia on Thursday published a new GeForce Game Ready driver that’s optimized for a trio of upcoming high-profile games.

The Nvidia GeForce 373.06 WHQL Game Ready driver preps gamers for Gears of War 4, Mafia III and Shadow Warrior 2. The driver also adds an SLI profile for Iron Storm, re-enables the Battlefield 1 SLI profile that was removed over the summer and adds 3D Vision profiles for Ashes of the Singularity, Gears of War 4, Mafia III and Shadow Warrior 2 (the last two are listed as “not recommended”).

Nvidia’s latest fixes a trio of issues in Windows 10 although 17 bugs in Microsoft's current OS persist, most of which affect SLI configurations. There are also nine known issues dating back to Windows 7.

Those planning to pick up Gears of War 4 may want to hop over to Nvidia’s website as they’ve posted a helpful optimization guide. The Coalition has baked in nearly three dozen graphics settings as well as several configuration options for displays and input devices. Gears 4 is also compatible with Nvidia G-Sync technology, no doubt good news if you have a compatible monitor.

Gears of War 4 arrives on October 7 for those that purchased the Ultimate Edition and October 11 for everyone else. Mafia II, the sequel to 2010’s Mafia II, also launches tomorrow while those clamoring for Shadow Warrior 2 will have to wait until October 13.

PS - AMD just yesterday released a new set of Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers that are optimized for Gears of War 4 and Mafia III.

"Mafia II, the sequel to 2010’s Mafia II, also launches tomorrow"

So.. is it Mafia II Extreme Edition or something? :p

Optimized for Mafia III? The title that is capped at 30 FPS? Come on Nvidia, skip the optimization for Mafia III, it's pretty useless, or Mafia III is a crappy piece of software... Releasing a title like this to the PC with this kind of flaw is totally dumb! People waited for GTA V, but when it came it rocked, making the wait worth it retrospectively. The patch will have to be good or this games is doomed for the PC, which would be a pity...
