It almost feels like NVIDIA had a bigger Gamescom this year than it did last year, considering the company launched its new Turing GPU architecture and GeForce RTX series graphics cards at the time.
NVIDIA announced its new Gamescom Game Ready 436.02 Driver, a special edition driver that celebrates the GeForce gaming community with huge software optimizations for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Forza Horizon 4, Strange Brigade and World War Z.
is offering some pretty crazy performance improvements in games like Apex Legends, with up to 23% more performance in Respawn's currently embroiled in drama battle royale hit. Forza Horizon 4 gains as well, with GeForce RTX SUPER graphics card owners getting some nice benefits. I will be doing my own testing across the non-SUPER cards as well.
Apex Legends has the biggest performance improvements here with the new GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER receiving up to 23.4% more performance at 1080p with the new NVIDIA GeForce "Gamescom" Game Ready 436.02 WHQL drivers. You'll get around 20% more performance at 1080p and 1440p on the RTX 2080 Ti, wit 10-17% more performance on the RTX 2060 SUPER at 1080p and 1440p.
