Just in time for some new releases, Nvidia have pushed out another set of GeForce drivers; 388.00. These are specifically intended for Destiny 2 (out tomorrow on PC), and Assassin’s Creed: Origins (27 October).
Wolfenstein 2 is out this week as well, of course. But as that’s an AMD-branded game it doesn’t get a specific mention here.
Nvidia are all about Destiny 2, however, which even gets a special performance write-up from the GPU company. The driver announcement page also has a few technical indicators on it, showing what sort of performance people should expect from the 1060, 1070, and 1080 series respectively. If you played the PC beta you’ll know roughly what level to expect. Basically, if you want to play at 60/1080p then anything in the 1060 range will be fine. 1440p and beyond at the highest settings gets progressively more demanding.
Here are the notes for GeForce 388.00. They’re followed by the Destiny 2 launch trailer, in case you haven’t seen that already.
