NVIDIA is back with a new driver package, but this time there is no major hardware release to go with it. The NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready Driver 430.64 is now available for a wide range of compatible video cards and comes with one-day support for two titles and a noticeable performance boost for a third one.

To be more specific, the 430.64 driver package brings one-day support for Rage 2 and Total War: Three Kingdoms, but it also increases the performance of the Vulkan renderer in World War Z by up to 18 percent. This performance increase has been recorded when playing the game on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti in full HD resolution. The performance gains are smaller when using other cards and higher resolution, ranging from 3 percent to more than 10 percent (in full HD mode, the GTX 1660 Ti, RTX 2060, RTX 2070, and RTX 2080 managed to hit at least 10 percent).

In addition to the above, the new driver package also comes with minor tweaks and optimizations. Sadly, the PhysX System Software and HD Audio Driver components have not been updated. As usual, the new GeForce Game Ready WHQL drivers can be download through NVIDIA's GeForce Experience app or directly, from this page, in the shape of a single, 536.75 MB download.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
