NVIDIA released its DX12 Ultimate Game Ready and Studio drivers today. The new drivers bring performance improvements and mean that DirectX 12 Ultimate is fully supported on RTX GPUs running Windows 10 version 2004. The drivers also bring support for hardware-accelerate GPU scheduling, which allows Windows 10 to manage video memory (VRAM). NVIDIA outlines the new driver updates in a recent post.
DirectX 12 Ultimate was announced earlier this year. It unifies support for new graphics capabilities, including ray tracing, variable-rate shading, mesh shaders, and sampler feedback. You can find out more about DirectX 12 Ultimate in our breakdown from earlier this year.
NVIDIA’s new Studio Driver improves performance and reliability on several creative apps, including Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Substance Alchemist, Blender, Autodesk, and Corel Painter. Since the new Studio driver supports hardware-accelerate GPU scheduling, GPUs can manage VRAM, which can improve performance and lower latency in supported 3D and video applications.
The latest NVIDIA Studio Driver is now available to download, bringing Windows 10 DirectX 12 Ultimate support and the latest optimizations for app releases from Adobe, Autodesk, Blender, Chaos and Corel.
