Nvidia has released yet another driver update, and the green team has something good to share with you Battle Royale players. It appears that update 391.01 boosts PUBG’s performance more than enough so rustier gaming rigs could also enjoy the game at a high level.
It is not only PUBG who received all the goodies, because World of Tanks, Final Fantasy and Vermintide 2 have also received a boost when it comes to performance. However, let’s start from one of the most popular video games nowadays, PUBG.
According to LegitReviews and their conclusion, it appeared that this update did boost the performance of some GPU cards up to 5%-7% in PUBG. It is unlikely we receive this kind of update, and we’re enough fortunate and aware that it’s the best could ever happen since it’s not any other game except the most played Battle Royale game.
