Guardians of the Galaxy latest patch delivers CPU and GPU optimisations on PC

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy has received patch 2982110 on PC, bringing many bug fixes and improvements to the game alongside new performance optimisations for both CPUs and GPUs. 

Before we start discussing the patch in more detail, we will note that Eidos Montreal recommends that PC gamers install their GPU's latest drivers before playing Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, except for Nvidia GTX 900 series users. PC gamers using GTX 900 series GPUs should stick to Nvidia's 471.11 drivers, as newer drivers presumably feature bugs that may impact Guardians of the Galaxy's playability. 

On PC, patch 2982110 delivers many graphical and performance tweaks, offering PC gamers CPU performance optimisations when ray tracing is enabled and various GPU performance optimisations. These GPU optimisations are particularly relevant for players who are playing Guardians of the Galaxy at high resolutions. 

Fixes within this patch include achievement unlock fix for the game's "This is what we do" achievement for PC gamers on the Epic Games Store, a fix for incorrect languages appearing in menus, fixes for various crashes, and improvements to the stability of Guardians of the Galaxy's ray tracing implementation.

With the latest Guardians of the galaxy patch containing ray tracing support for the game's Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions, it makes sense that this patch's PC counterpart includes new optimisations for the PC version's ray tracing options. With this in mind, it also makes sense that these new patches contain GPU optimisations that are most impactful for players running Guardians of the Galaxy at high resolutions.
