New Nvidia GeForce graphics card driver released – version 531.61

New gaming GPU driver adds support for GeForce RTX 4070, with bug fixes for The Last of Us PC, Assassin's Creed Origins, and Hogwarts Legacy.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070

A new Nvidia driver has been released for the company’s GeForce graphics cards, which adds support for the new GeForce RTX 4070 gaming GPU and provides a few bug fixes for games as well.

You can read all about the new GPU in our full GeForce RTX 4070 review, and the new Nvidia WHQL Game Ready 531.61 driver contains full support for new graphics cards based on this GPU.

In addition, Nvidia driver 531.61 also contains three key bug fixes for games, including The Last of Us PC, which has been plagued with technical problems since its recent launch, prompting both AMD and Nvidia to release hotfix drivers for it last week. The latest Nvidia driver fixes a problem where the game randomly crashed when using GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs.

Another bug fix includes addressing stability problems in Assassin’s Creed Origins, which were introduced with Nvidia driver 531.18. In addition, Nvidia says it’s fixed a problem with Hogwarts Legacy where the game hung, or the screen went black, on the Shader Compilation Screen, again using Nvidia driver 531.18.
