Game optimizations and maybe not ready yet?

Nvidia recently released the new Geforce Game Ready 516.40 WHQL, which seems to bring new optimizations but also problems. Among other things, one of the optimized titles, Jurassic World Evolution 2, to give problems. Read more about this below.

AMD and Nvidia not only release new graphics drivers when new products are released, but also when problems need to be resolved or optimizations for new games need to be incorporated. Therefore, Nvidia released the Geforce Game Ready 516.40 WHQL driver this week, which supports some new games and new features in existing games.

The main new game this controller release is optimized for is Fall Guys: Free for All, a multiplayer Battle Royale that is based on player skill. The title is scheduled to be released on June 21 on the Epic Games Store. The new driver should also offer updates for existing games. For example, DLSS and ray tracing were implemented in Jurassic World Evolution 2, which should now also be optimally usable. Raytracing was also implemented in Capcom’s Resident Evil 2, 3 and 7 games, which should now also be optimally usable on the driver’s side.

On top of that, new optimized Geforce Experience settings for Dolmen, Evil Dead: The Game, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, My Time at Sandrock, Paradise Killer, Sniper Elite 5, V Rising, Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong games and Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Demon Hunters added.

However, since the first issues with the new driver are already showing up on hardware forums and social media shortly after release, an install should only be done if one of the new titles is going to be played. Complications that most users complain about are artifacting, other graphical bugs, and system crashes that previously had no issues, so Geforce Game Ready 516.40 cannot be recommended at this time.
