Nvidia released a new GeForce driver this week optimized for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth and Monster Hunter: World.
The new driver, version 398.82, adds day-one support for Battle for Azeroth and Monster Hunter: World weeks before they are set to arrive (Battle for Azeroth launches August 14; Monster Hunter: World debuts on August 9). It also provides an updated SLI profile for World of Warcraft, which should come in handy for those looking to get the highest frame rates possible with their multi-GPU gaming rigs. Nvidia stated that you can expect to achieve a smooth 60 frames per second with high settings at 1,920 x 1,080, 2,560 x 1,440 and 3,840 x 2,160 with a GeForce GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080, respectively.
The driver also features 3D Vision and Compatibility Mode profiles for Monster Hunter: World. Other additions to the Nvidia driver include an updated SLI profile for Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 and fixes to various lingering bugs.
