NVIDIA Releases GeForce Software 442.19 – Game-ready for Zombie Army: Dead War 4

NVIDIA today posted, the latest version of GeForce software. Version 442.19 WHQL comes game-ready for “Zombie Army: Dead War 4,” “Apex Legends Season 4,” and “Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story.” With these drivers, NVIDIA improved the maximum frame-rate setting with limits between 20 and 1,000 FPS. Find this setting in “NVIDIA Control Panel>3D Settings>Maximum Frame Rate control.” NVIDIA also introduced VRSS (VR super-sampling), an image quality enhancement that super sampling selectively on the central region of a frame.

Among the bug fixes are a game crash during a cutscene in “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine,” SETI@Home experiencing driver crash (TDR) on “Maxwell” GPUs, random stoppage of OBS streaming with “Call of Duty Modern Warfare,” Battleye with NVIDIA low-latency mode causing a DWM crash and recovery; certain SLI+G-Sync stutter issues being fixed; a “Doom” (2016) game crash with “Kepler” GPUs, and an NVENC memory leak.

Game Ready
The new Game Ready Driver provides the latest performance optimizations, profiles, and bug fixes for Zombie Army: Dead War 4. In addition, this release also provides optimal support for Apex Legends Season 4 and Metro Exodus: Sam’s Story.

Maximum Framerate
In the last Game Ready Driver, we introduced a new Maximum Framerate Setting into the NVIDIA Control Panel which allowed gamers to set the max framerate a 3D application or game can render. With the latest Game Ready Driver, we’ve incorporated community feedback asking for the limits to be extended. As a result, framerate limits can be as low as 20 FPS and can be raised as high as 1000fps.
