Nvidia has just released their GeForce 528.49 drivers for Windows PCs, offering support for Nvidia's new RTX 40 series notebook GPUs alongside day-0 optimisations for Company of Heroes 3.

In addition to RTX 40 laptop GPU support, this new driver also adds support for 10 new G-Sync compatible displays. Below are the release notes for Nvidia's latest GeForce driver.

Weirdly though Hogwarts does show up in the driver but not in the patch notes, Maybe they're waiting for Friday considering that's the main launch day as the game has DLSS2/3 in it so I would've thought they'd be singing from the rooftops about itQuote
