Released yesterday, the latest Game Ready driver package from NVIDIA comes with optimizations for Apex Legends Season 4, Tom Clancy's The Division 2: Warlords of New York, ARK: Genesis, as well as support for two G-SYNC-compatible monitors by AOC (AG271FZ2 and AG271F1G2) and one by Asus (PG43U).
Codrut Nistor,

NVIDIA continues to remain at the top of the game when it comes to driver updates and it looks like there's little that AMD can do about it nowadays. Yesterday's 442.50 WHQL software package already provides full support for titles yet to arrive such as the Warlords of New York expansion for Tom Clancy's The Division 2, which is scheduled to launch next week (on March 3, if you want an accurate date).

Apex Legends players get a fix for the crash that has been affecting some of them, as well as other minor optimizations for the Season 4 patch. ARK: Genesis: Part 1 is also fully supported by the new GeForce Game Ready Driver package, which also includes a few of VRSS profiles for VR titles, various other fixes, and three new G-SYNC compatible monitors: AOC's AG271FZ2 and AG271F1G2, as well as the Asus PG43U.

Unfortunately, there are a few open issues that still need to be addressed by NVIDIA soon, most likely in the next release. Fortunately, the list only consists of three items: World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth crashing when switched between DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 mode in Windows 7, unselectable Ansel & Freestyle tabs in Zombie Army: Dead War 4 (Windows 10), and flickering that occurs after switching between full-screen and windowed mode in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege (Windows 10, Vulkan mode with G-SYNC enabled).

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
