Nvidia driver 536_99

Nvidia has released its latest Game Ready graphics card driver that ‘provides the best gaming experience’ for three new games that support the company’s DLSS 2 technology. Nvidia driver 536.99 adds Baldur’s Gate 3, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, and Gord to the list of officially supported games with Nvidia DLSS 2 tech.

Baldur’s Gate 3 is the just-released and long-awaited third installment in the official Dungeons & Dragons RPG that brings with it new racesskills, and even romance options. Meanwhile, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is an upcoming (August 18, 2023) asymmetrical horror game that has teams of ‘victims’ face off against ‘killers’ in this tribute to the classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre film.

Finally, Gord is an upcoming (August 17, 2023) dark fantasy strategy game from Polish studio Covenant, which was founded by former The Witcher 3 producer Stan Just. It’s based on Slavic folklore and integrates ‘developing societies, eerie forbidden lands, and remarkable mythical creatures’.

Along with these newly supported games, this latest driver release includes several bug fixes such as improving game stability in Battlefield 2042 when applying GeForce Experience Freestyle filters, and improving game stability in Dead Space.
