NVIDIA today released the year’s most important GeForce driver update, version 425.31 WHQL. The drivers enable DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API support for GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1660, GTX 1080 Ti, GTX 1080, GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1070, and GTX 1060 6 GB, in addition to TITAN graphics cards based on the “Pascal” and “Volta” architectures. The DXR workload is executed by the CUDA cores entirely, which makes these GPUs significantly slower than NVIDIA’s RTX 20-series chips that have dedicated hardware such as RT cores and tensor cores. We’ve detailed this in our special article. In addition these drivers add Game Ready optimization for “Anno 1800,” and fix a number of issues listed below.
