Los Angeles, Calif. - April 11th, 2019 - The highly anticipated Nvidia GeForce DXR-enabled 425.31 WHQL driver is finally rolled out. Nvidia has honored its promise made at the GDC (Game Developers Conference) last month. This is definitely a good news for gamers, because this driver adds support for DirectX Raytracing (DXR) on GeForce GTX 10/16 series graphics cards and optimizes the gaming experience for Anno 1800. Let's take a look at it.
It is no doubt that the DirectX Raytracing support is the focus of the Nvidia 425.31 WHQL driver. However, not all GTX series GPUs will get supported. Now only the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB (and higher) and GeForce GTX 1660 (and higher) GPUs are supported. And the performance will vary. Furthermore, the followings are also worth noting.
Provides the optimal gaming experience for Anno 1800.
