NVIDIA kickstarts the week with the launch of the GeForce 472.12 WHQL driver. If you want to download it manually, you can get the 722.87MB large package over here. This is the Game Ready release for Windows 11 as well as eight new game titles, which are listed in the quote below.

Furthermore, NVIDIA is offering initial support for the new NVIDIA DLAA (Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing) On Elder Scrolls Online Test Servers. This is a new AI-based anti-aliasing technique. It's somewhat similar to DLSS but it works on the native resolution and is solely intended to maximize image quality.
This new Game Ready Driver provides support for the official launch of Windows 11, including a variety of new features and functionality to enhance your gaming and productivity. In addition, this new Game Ready Driver offers support for the latest new titles and updates, including Alan Wake Remastered which utilizes NVIDIA DLSS to boost framerates by up to 2x at 4K resolution. Additionally, this release always provides optimal support for the latest update to Deathloop which introduces NVIDIA Reflex technology, as well as the launch of Diablo II: Resurrected, Far Cry 6, Hot Wheels Unleashed, Industria, New World, and World War Z: Aftermath.

What’s New in Release 470:
  • Added support for Windows 11.
  • Added support for CUDA 11.4.
  • Updated scaling resolution in NVIDIA Image Sharpening.
  • Version 471.41 and later added security updates for driver components

NVIDIA also reminds us that starting next month, it will exclusively offer bug fixes, driver optimizations, and new features for Maxwell, Pascal, Turing, and Ampere-based GPUs. The Kepler-based desktop GPUs are no longer supported but will keep receiving critical security updates until September 2024.
