nvidia logo

Yes Nvidia and AMD owners, graphics card driver updates come along exceptionally often. Annoyingly so in fact! With Team Green announcing the release of their latest GeForce 516.40 version though, is this one actually worth checking out?

Well given the number of things currently going on in the gaming world (and particularly so in regards to Resident Evil 2, 3, and 7 getting ray tracing updates!), as bothersome as it might be, this one definitely seems to be worth both the time and effort!

Nvidia GeForce 516.40

As part of the official update notes, Nvidia has confirmed the following support, game-ready optimisations, and other general fixes:

Game Ready for Fall Guys: Free for All

This new Game Ready Driver provides the best day-0 gaming experience for Fall Guy: Free for All. In addition, this new Game Ready Driver offers support for the latest releases and updates including the addition of NVIDIA Reflex in ICARUS and the introduction of ray tracing to Jurassic World Evolution 2, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, and Resident Evil 7.
