If you’re among the many players experiencing issues with the PC version of Hello Games’ interstellar exploration sim No Man’s Sky, Nvidia’s latest GeForce driver update may have the solutions you seek.

Initially released for the PlayStation 4, No Man’s Sky made its way to Windows PCs last week with the launch of a digital version via Steam and other online distribution services. Though many players were able to jump into the experience immediately on release day, others faced issues such as sub-par graphics rendering and stuttering frame rates, while a select few players were unable to launch the game altogether.

Hello Games has since released a comprehensive update for the PC version of No Man’s Sky that fixed crashes and other major issues, but many players continue to report performance issues across varied graphics cards and PC hardware configurations. Nvidia targets these users in particular with its latest round of updated GeForce drivers.

After installing Nvidia’s updated drivers, GeForce users can expect to see stable frame rates and SLI support for No Man’s Sky, resolving many of the game’s lingering issues with regard to performance.

Players will also see SLI support and similar optimizations for Square Enix’s Deus Ex: Mankind Divided when it ships for Windows PCs on August 23. While it remains to be seen whether Mankind Divided will launch with fewer issues than No Man’s Sky, Nvidia’s updated drivers will give players the best possible experience on release day.

Other Windows PC games benefiting from Nvidia’s newly issued GeForce 372.54 drivers include Codemasters’ racing sim F1 2016, Cyan’s virtual reality adventure game Obduction, and the open beta version of Epic Games’ in-progress MOBA Paragon. In addition, driver support now extends to Nvidia’s GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1080 graphics cards for desktop and laptop computers.

Users can download Nvidia’s updated drivers for free via their graphics card’s bundled GeForce Experience application.

How Nvidia tricked everyone into buying a $1,600 GPU
The RTX 4080 logo on a pink background.

Nvidia's RTX 4090 is intensely powerful, but at the first glance, it's hard not to call it overpriced. Spending upwards of $1,600 on a graphics card is a lot, especially if you consider that you can build an entire gaming PC for the same amount of money.

Of course, the flagship RTX 4090 only sounds like a rip-off until you look at the $1,200 RTX 4080. Has Nvidia really managed to trick us into thinking that a $1,600 GPU is a great deal?
Nvidia's RTX 4090 is a beast with a scary price

This stunning DIY gaming PC dream machine is made of glass
Incredible gaming PC built into a DIY glass desk.

This stunning, handmade, gaming PC is a dream machine made of glass. A clear tower case becomes old news compared to this design that offers an entire desk to complete the build. Extra room is good news since it's packed with high-performance hardware, such as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090, which has been known to generate enough heat to melt its power connectors.

Shared by its owner, Reddit user Kumag 1989, the full specifications are impressive. An Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card, MSI 4090 Gaming Trio, is the headliner, with a custom water-cooling loop and an Intel 11900K CPU on a Z590 Aorus Pro AX motherboard, with an Asus Rog Thor 850W PSU to power it all. This could be Tony Stark's desk and it even includes a light-up Iron Man head for decoration.

The one setting that deflates playing Spider-Man Miles Morales on PC
A comparison of a finisher move in Spider-Man Miles Morales.

Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales is available on PC, following up on the smash success of the base game, Marvel's Spider-Man, on PC earlier this year. Like the original release, Miles Morales is packed with the latest PC gaming tech and smoothly polished to run on different hardware. It's a great PC port. Except for DLSS 3 Frame Generation, that is.

Nvidia's latest upscaling tech joins Intel XeSS and AMD FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) in Miles Morales. They're all great upscaling options, but the unique frame-generation capabilities of DLSS 3 are a sore point. If you plan on picking up Miles Morales on PC, make sure to keep DLSS Frame Generation turned off to avoid an occasional mess of AI image generation.
