Nvidia's Gamescom Game Ready Driver Packs a Performance Punch

Nvidia is making waves at Gamescom 2019, announcing raytracing support for Minecraft, Dying Light 2 and a multitude of other titles. But what about existing games? Don't worry, Nvidia has something just for you with their Geforce 436.02 Gamescom Game Ready Driver. 

With this new driver, Nvidia promises up to 23% performance gains in popular titles, promising gains in Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade and World War Z on RTX series graphics cards. The Geforce 436.02 driver packs a lot of performance optimisations, alongside support for three new G-Sync Compatible displays, the ASUS VG27A, ACER CP3271, and ACER XB273K GP. 

Nvidia promises the largest performance gains in Forza Horizon 4 and Apex Legends, with Battlefield V, Strange Brigade and World War Z offering smaller performance gains. One thing to note here is that most of these gains are targetted at popular benchmarking titles for reviewers. 

The Geforce 436.02 driver also contains other noteworthy features, which we plan to analyse in-depth in a future article. Nvidia plans to release their Geforce 436.02 driver at 2 PM BST (6 AM PT).

That's usually because they tend to be the more popular games.
But performance gains are performance gains.Quote

Correct me if I am wrong but are these gains specific to Ray Tracing or the general FPS of the cards without ?Quote

Most of the games here don't have raytracing support but I'd assume all the games are running at max settings so if that's available I'd guess they'd be on but the gains would still apply generally (Big gains in Horizon 4 for instance, a DirectX12 game without RT). I think Mark might cover all of this is the upcoming detailed article.Quote
