Nvidia releases a Game Ready Driver for PUBG’s official debut

If there is a single game that can be called a 2017 smash hit it’s PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), quickly becoming this year’s most popular game on the PC platform. 

PUBG is set to officially release tomorrow, removing the game from Steam’s Early Access Program while also delivering new features alongside the game’s highly anticipated desert map. Over 1 billion hours have been spent playing PUBG this year, with the game being Steam’s second most purchased title of all time, second only to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. 
Nvidia has now released a “Game Ready” driver for PUBG’s official debut, delivering game-specific optimisations for the title to provide optimal performance. Right now, Nvidia states that their GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 Ti are now capable of average framerates of 60FPS at resolutions of 1080p, 1440p and 4K respectively at high settings.
