    Nvidia now provides a new Game Ready Driver for its GeForce-based customers. It’s optimized for the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare PC Open Beta, Borderlands 3, Code Vein, FIFA 20, Gears 5, and The Surge 2. You can install the new WHQL driver – version 436.30 – through Nvidia’s GeForce Experience desktop client or manually download and install it from Nvidia’s website.

    Six panels added to G-Sync Compatible

    In addition to game optimizations, the new driver now supports six just-validated G-Sync Compatible displays. These displays do not include Nvidia’s proprietary module, but instead rely on off-the-shelf scaler boards supporting Variable Refresh Rates. However, they do undergo rigorous testing similar to G-Sync and G-Sync Ultimate panels.

    Here are the new displays:

    • Acer VG252Q
    • Acer XV273 X
    • Gigabyte Aorus FI27Q
    • Gigabyte FI27Q-P
    • LG 27GL650
    • LG 27GL63T

    Nvidia’s release notes state that version 436.30 WHQL adds an SLI profile for Close to the Sun. It joins 12 other profiles added or updated throughout the Release 435 distribution. These include BattleTech, Fe, Heavy Rain, Remnant: From the Ashes, Starlink: Battle for Atlas, Warhammer: Chaosbane, and more.

    Big plans with LG OLED TVs

    The new driver arrives after Nvidia announced its plans to validate five new 4K OLED TVs from LG as G-Sync Compatible. The company said on Monday that LG’s E9 and C9 models will receive G-Sync Compatible firmware “later this year” alongside a new driver supporting these OLED TVs. However, LG’s OLED TVs aren’t cheap:

    • LG C9 55-inch – $1,599.99
    • LG E9 55-inch – $2,299.99
    • LG C9 65-inch – $2,499.99
    • LG E9 65-inch – $3,299.99
    • LG C9 77-inch – $5,499.99

    “If you don’t own a LG TV but do own a display or TV that only supports Variable Refresh Rates via HDMI, you can try enabling HDMI VRR when the aforementioned driver is released,” Nvidia states. “As these displays and TVs haven’t yet been through our comprehensive validation process, we can’t guarantee VRR will work, or work without issue.”

    As for the new Game Ready Driver released this week, here is the release schedule for the listed optimized games:

    I'm a first generation gamer. While this mallrat grew up on consoles and trolled the arcades, my PC gaming obsession ignited with Quake and 3DFX. I'm mostly a shooter and RPG fan, playing Fallout 76, Destiny 2, Wolfenstein: Youngblood, and loads more. I love puppies and long walks on beaches too.
