A new Nvidia driver has been released for the company’s GeForce graphics cards, which the company says will provide the “best gaming experience” in new games Star Wars Jedi: Survivor and Dead Island 2.
This latest release quickly follows the GeForce RTX 4070 driver that came out last week. You can read all about this new GPU in our full GeForce RTX 4070 review, and the new Nvidia WHQL Game Ready 531.68 driver not only supports this new GPU, but also adds support for several new G-Sync compatible gaming monitors from AOC and Dell.
If Nvidia awards an adaptive sync monitor with “G-Sync compatible” validation, this means it’s certified to have a variable refresh rate range of at least 2.4:1 (60Hz-144Hz is a common example), and that it doesn’t suffer from flickering or blanking image quality issues.
These are the G-Sync compatible monitors supported by Nvidia driver 531.68:
|AOC Q27G3Z||Yes||27″||IPS||2,560 x 1,440|
|AOC U32G3X||No||32″||IPS||3,840 x 2,160|
|Dell G2524H||No||24.5″||IPS||1,920 x 1,080|
|Dell G2724D||Yes||27″||IPS||2,560 x 1,440|
|Dell AW2724DM||Yes||27″||IPS||2,560 x 1,440|
You can download Nvidia GeForce driver 531.68 for Windows 10 and 11 from the Nvidia website here.
Nvidia’s last driver, version 531.61, first introduced support for the GeForce RTX 4070, which is detailed in the video below.
Nvidia driver 531.68 bug fixes
Three bugs have also been fixed in Nvidia GeForce driver 531.68. Immortals Fenyx Rising should now no longer randomly crash to the desktop – a problem that was seen by some people when updating to driver 531.41.
Shadowplay also no longer gets incorrectly engaged in EA’s Play application, and enabling Nvidia Reflex in Counter-Strike 2 should no longer reduce performance either.
