Analysts Suggest Long Awaited GPU Price Drops Almost Here

Nvidia released today new GeForce Game Ready 419.35 WHQL drivers to improve performance in Apex Legends and the upcoming Devil May Cry 5 and Tom Clancy's The Division 2. The new drivers also add support for newly certified G-Sync Compatible monitors from Acer and BenQ.

Nvidia has released new GeForce graphics card drivers which provide optimizations for Apex Legends - and several other games - but perhaps more importantly for PC gamers addicted to EA's new battle royale, there's a fix for a nasty and persistent crashing issue pertaining to RTX GPUs.

The launch of Apex Legends has been an enormous success, becoming one of the most popular games in the world nearly overnight following its relatively sudden release on February 4. These games are of course, Metro Exodus, Anthem and Battlefield V. If you grab an RTX 2060 or RTX 2070 instead, you'll be able to choose one of those three games instead. But that note was mostly to highlight its new GeForce RTX Triple Threat Bundle, which offers all three games with the purchase of an RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti.

That bundle is apparently part of Nvidia's efforts to inflate RTX sales after some disappointing results in the previous financial quarter. Those are the Acer ED273 A, Acer XF250Q and BenQ XL2540-B / ZOWIE XL LCD (for a total of 15 compatible displays now).

G-Sync, in case you're unfamiliar with it, is Nvidia's special variable refresh rate tech that helps to eliminate screen tearing by matching your monitor's refresh rate to the number of frames being spat out by your graphics card. It's not the full G-Sync experience, but it's good enough that Nvidia have deemed it worthy of a proper stamp of approval.

Nvidia has kicked off this week with three announcements.

You can download the new NVIDIA GeForce 419.35 WHQL drivers here and be careful as they're getting hefty at a large 551MB download.
