Nvidia 536.99 is here to take your gaming experience to the next level
Baldur's Gate 3 has become one of the most popular games in a very short amount of time, and the Nvidia 536.99 update was pretty much released to increase the popular title's optimization. However, a couple more games will have better optimization with the new update.
Baldur's Gate 3 was released from early access on PC last week and quickly surpassed the majority of the top-played titles on Steam. While many people have already invested dozens of hours into the huge universe built by Larian Studios, Nvidia recommends that users update this driver to take advantage of its "additional optimizations and enhancements." The company did not specify the nature of these upgrades.
Nvidia released a new driver update for its graphics cards today, which includes compatibility for one of the year's most popular titles. The GeForce Game Ready 536.99 WHQL-certified driver adds official support for Baldur's Gate 3, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Gord to the lineup. The Intel graphics driver for Baldur's Gate 3 was released last week. AMD's camp has not yet responded.
Nvidia 536.99 update brought optimization to three titles
BG3 player count is close to a million now, but luckily, Nvidia included a couple more games in the list. This means that Baldur's Gate 3 is not the only title that will offer better gaming experience after the Nvidida 536.99 update.
- Baldur’s Gate 3
- The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
Games with optimized GFE settings
- Jagged Alliance 3
