Nvidia publishes GeForce Game Ready Drivers 536.23 supporting F1 23 and Aliens: Dark Descent

More one-click optimisations.

Aliens Dark Descent

Nvidia has released GeForce Game Ready Drivers 536.23 WHQL featuring new game and monitor support alongside the usual bug fixes.

This update brings support for F1 23 and Aliens: Dark Descent in addition to a bunch of G-Sync monitors – like Asus’s PG38UQ and LG’s 27GR83Q. It also fixes bugs causing Microsoft Flight Simulator to crash and locking some Surface devices at low frequencies. Red Dead Redemption and ON1 Photo RAW should also be more stable now.

Version 536.23 also adds a handful of GeForce Experience-recommended settings for games such as Street Fighter 6, System Shock, and Diablo IV which, by the way, is currently offered with the purchase of qualifying GeForce RTX 4090, 4080, 4070 Ti, or 4070 graphics cards. While handy to get a quick starting point for optimal performance, please note that in some cases these recommended settings may be a little too high or too low for the hardware available, thus some extra manual tweaks ought to deliver better results. In the same spirit, Nvidia’s game graphics tweak guides – like this one for Tomb Raider – are also very useful, full of details and explanations.

This time around, it seems that only two bugs are left to tackle – until more rear their ugly heads – including one regarding latency in Latencymon (as software checking real-time audio processing speed) and another crashing games after applying GeForce Experience Freestyle filters.

GeForce Game Ready 536.23 can be downloaded (653.37MB) from Nvidia’s website here.
