Nvidia releases their Geforce 417.22 driver for Battlefield V 

Nvidia has officially released their Geforce 417.22 driver, which comes with new optimisations for RTX/DXR Raytracing in Battlefield V, and a new 3D vision profiles for Just Cause 4 and Project Nova. 

This driver does not list “Game Ready” optimisations for Just Cause 4, which releases tomorrow, placing them behind AMD on the game-specific optimisations front. We will see soon enough whether or not this gives AMD/Radeon a performance advantage within the game.
