With CES 2020 in full swing this week and dominating the headlines, NVIDIA wants to keep gamers updated on what team green has planned. NVIDIA is slowly expanding support for RTX and DLSS with this update. Wolfenstein: Youngblood’s real-time ray tracing effects are now supported on the NVIDIA side, at least partially, as well. The developer, Machine Games, now has to issue a patch to enable the option in-game.
And yes, finally, the company has built out a framerate limiter into the NVIDIA Control Panel. This will allow NVIDIA GPU owners to do away with programs like RTSS for 3D applications and games that don’t have framerate limiting built into the software.
The NVIDIA GeForce 441.87 WHQL driver also introduces Variable Rate Super Sampling. Variable Rate Super Sampling (VRSS) is an innovation within the anti-aliasing space that targets VR games. By sampling VR scenes, the graphical engine can better optimize delivery, rendering and scaling of assets in VR.
This new driver package packs in the performance and quality improvements aplenty for 2020. The NVIDIA GeForce 441.87 WHQL brings improvements to Image Sharpening tech, making images crisper and smoother in rendering. There’s also some new elements to Freestyle Filters. These Freestyle Filters are the technology NVIDIA introduced to give PC gamers an option to tweak game visuals in real-time.
And aside from this new driver package, the company also teased a new partnership to create the first 360Hz display for gaming with ASUS. The ASUS ROG Swift 360Hz could be coming soon, bringing insanely high refresh rates to the competitive gaming scene.
