Nvidia's GeForce 527.56 driver is Game Ready for three new DLSS 3 games

With the release of their new GeForce 527.56 WHQL drivers, Nvidia has added 'Game Ready' optimisations for three new games, all of which support Nvidia's DLSS 3 technology. These games are The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt Next-Gen, Portal with RTX, and Jurassic World Evolution 2. 

DLSS 3, also known as DLSS Frame Generation, is an AI-powered technology that effectively acts as a framerate doubler, using AI generated frames that are placed between GPU rendered frames to make games appear smoother. This new form of DLSS is only available on Nvidia's RTX 40 series graphics cards, and it can also be used alongside Nvidia's DLSS 2 (DLSS Super Resolution) technology. 

Below are the release notes of AMD's Geforce 527.56 WHQL drivers.
