Nvidia has just released a brand new GPU driver that adds day-1 optimal support for multiple game titles. Nvidia’s driver 457.30 adds optimal support for CoD: Black Ops Cold War, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, and Godfall. It also fixes the FPS issue in CoD: Warzone, which was caused by the previous driver.
Players should no longer get FPS drops in Warzone, which is why this update is extremely vital for those that play Warzone mostly. Furthermore, this update updates the SLI profile for Black Desert and addresses other additional issues.
