Nvidia's Latest Driver is Game Ready for Black Ops: Cold War, Godfall and Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Nvidia has just launched their Geforce 457.30 WHQL driver for Windows 10, offering their users Game Ready performance in Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War, Godfall and Assassin's Creed Valhalla.

In addition to this, Nvidia's latest driver also offers gamers optimisations for the RTX 30 series in Call of Duty: Warzone, where users previously saw performance drops on certain systems.
