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.
Nvidia’s new “Game Ready” GeForce graphics card drivers specifically target user-reported issues in No Man’s Sky, and will ensure smooth performance for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided when it launches next week.
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.
