Also, we will see a day-0 support for the upcoming release of Dolmen and Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong. These two titles are soon going to be released for PC, and NVIDIA Claims a day-0 support for both of them as well.
But along with the driver update, there were some issues introduced to the system. In this post, we will see the detailed content of the update as well as some of the issues that users are facing after they have installed the update.
What is the content for NVIDIA GRD 512.77 Driver and some of the issues?
To start off with, the game-ready driver 512.77 introduces NVIDIA DLSS Support for Evil Dead: The Game. What NVIDIA has shown us is that it can increase your framerates for the game by about 44 FPS if you can use the Performance Mode for DLSS.
I have tested the game for the same and I did not get such a massive boost. But, it did help with the framerates. Here is the post where I covered the best graphics settings for Evil Dead: The Game.
