New Nvidia GeForce GPU driver download - 536.23 adds F1 23 support

New Nvidia Game Ready WHQL driver optimizes performance in F1 23 and Aliens: Dark Descent, and adds support for eight new G-Sync monitors.

Nvidia GeForce F1 23 driver download

The latest Nvidia driver download has just been released for its GeForce graphics cards, which the company says is ‘Game Ready’ for F1 23 when it launches on Friday, June 16, giving the game support for DLSS 2 and Nvidia Reflex on launch day.

However, Nvidia says that F1 23 won’t support DLSS 3 – the AI frame generation tech introduced with the Ada architecture – at launch, with DLSS 3 support arriving in a ‘post-launch update.’ You can check the F1 23 system requirements to see if your system can run it, and have a look at what to expect in the official trailer below.

In addition, Nvidia also says that GeForce driver 536.23 will be optimized for Aliens: Dark Descent when it launches on Tuesday June 20th. You can check the Aliens: Dark Descent system requirements to see if your PC is good to run it.

Meanwhile, Nvidia has taken the opportunity to add compatibility for G-Sync to a bunch of monitors from Asus, LG, and Panasonic. 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 new G-Sync compatible monitors supported by Nvidia driver 536.23:

Model HDR Size Panel type Resolution Variable refresh rate range
Asus PG38UQ Yes 38-inch IPS 3,840 x 2,160 48-144Hz
