Nvidia Releases ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’ Games Ready Driver
Users of consumer graphics cards from Nvidia’s GeForce series now have access to a new driver. The most recent release, the GeForce Game Ready 526.86 WHQL driver, boasts support for the viral game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. There is more to it than that, though, as several bug fixes for other games were also given. Players of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II are said to benefit from three significant improvements provided by the latest GeForce driver. Players should notice better stability, improved performance, and corrections for image issues when the game is updated.
Players of Modern Warfare II can now benefit from the backing of two top technologies from the green team, Nvidia DLSS and Nvidia Reflex, in addition to the much-welcomed finesse and improvements. Nvidia claims that the newly implemented upscaling technology would allow gamers to “max out Modern Warfare II’s graphics at the highest resolutions while maintaining smooth frame rate.” Those familiar with Nvidia Reflex won’t be surprised to learn that one of CoD: MWII’s advertised advantages is decreased latency, which makes the game more responsive and fun.
Several bugs have been fixed, including those affecting Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s flashing screen damage. Nvidia claims to have fixed several random issues that got more common the more extended the gaming session in Call of Duty: Vanguard. Other issues addressed in the release notes include YouTube crashing to a black screen, GPU becoming stuck in a P0 state while closing games, flickering graphics in Anvil Engine games, performance issues with GeForce RTX 4090 8K60 decoding, and the removal of rainbow effects from Forza Horizon 5.
There is still a list of known issues with this driver release, but the fact that the developer is aware of them and has listed them gives hope that they will be fixed soon. The most alarming-sounding problems still exist in HDR toggling crashes and repeated crashes in artistic programs like Cinema4D and Daz Studio. Go here to download if you have a GeForce RTX 700 series or later graphics card and Windows 10 64-bit or later. If none of the above improvements or fixes are urgently needed by you, you can wait until the GeForce Experience app encourages you to download this driver.
