Nvidia releases GeForce Game Ready Drivers 531.79 with support for Redfall

Asus monitors getting their high refresh rate back.


Nvidia has released GeForce Game Ready drivers 531.79 WHQL, offering optimisations for Redfall alongside a couple of bug fixes.

With this update, Arkane Studios’ adventure shooter Redfall enjoys higher frame rates using DLSS 3 technology, which nearly doubles FPS thanks to the frame generation feature, plus any game-specific optimisations. This Game Ready driver also brings DLSS 2 support to titles such as Showgunners and Blizzard’s upcoming Diablo IV Server Slam beta scheduled from May 12 to 14.

According to Nvidia’s tests, the RTX 4090 is able to run Redfall at 188FPS using 4K resolution and DLSS 3, with RTX 4070 averaging around 104FPS at similar settings. Performance uplifts aside, some players have reported higher-than-expected latency in Redfall when using DLSS 3 frame generation, so hopefully this new update fixes that too with the help of Nvidia Reflex.

As for bug fixes, Nvidia got rid of some crashes in Battlefield 2042, The Last of Us, plus Unreal Editor, and has brought back high refresh rates for Asus VG27WQ and XV253Q monitors in the Control Panel.

Version 531.79 can be downloaded from Nvidia’s website.

The full list of changes goes as follows:
