New Nvidia driver 537.34 speeds up Starfield, supports Lies of P

Latest Nvidia GeForce GPU driver update adds resizable BAR profile to Starfield, and adds support for Mortal Kombat 1 and Lies of P.

Nvidia driver 537.74: Starfield performance boost

A new Nvidia driver update has just been released for the company’s GeForce GPU models. The Nvidia GeForce driver 537.37 download adds Game Ready support for Nvidia graphics cards in Mortal Kombat 1 and Lies of P, while also enabling G-Sync on six new monitor models. In addition, Nvidia is also introducing an official resizable BAR profile for Starfield, which will come as an over-the-air update to driver 537.34, as well as the previous Nvidia driver (531.17).

According to Nvidia, the resizable BAR profile can improve Starfield performance by an average of 5 percent on the latest Nvidia Ada graphics cards, such as the GeForce RTX 4090. This will come as good news to owners of Nvidia GPUs, as the game was heavily optimized for AMD Radeon GPUs, thanks to AMD being the official hardware partner. The new driver also brings official Game Ready status to Lies of P and Mortal Kombat 1, with both games incorporating DLSS 2 support.

Lies of P is a kind of steampunk Souls-like game based on the legend of Pinocchio, which you can see in the trailer video below. You can also check if your rig can run it by taking a look at the Lies of P system requirements.
