The launch of a new AAA video title usually means new video card drivers too. AMD already uploaded its driver for Cyberpunk 2077 earlier this week and now there's the GeForce 460.79 WHQL release from NVIDIA. You can find this driver over here. Besides optimizations for Cyberpunk 2077 the driver also has game ready support for Minecraft with RTX, some new Control Panel features, and bug fixes.
New Features and Other Changes:
  • NVIDIA Control Panel: - Added Background Application Max Frame Rate control (Manage 3D Settings page)
    - Added Color Accuracy Mode feature (Display > Adjust Desktop Color Settings page

    Bug fixes:
  • [Forza Motorsport 7]: The curb may display a black strip during a race on certain tracks. [2781776]
  • When setting the refresh rate higher than 100Hz, the color format switches from RGB to ycbcr422. [3053990]
  • [GeForce RTX 3090][SLI][G-SYNC]: When G-SYNC is enabled in SLI surround (3x monitors), the system locks up when launching a game. [3167493]
