    Only two days at launch of call of duty black ops 4 and not new game ready from Nvidia :(.
    May be because is not considered an AAA game @ManuelG?

    ROFL, the game isn't out yet so why do you need drivers?

    And why are you pointing a finger at ManuelG or implying it isn't a AAA game (which it quite obviously is)?

    F**king sense of entitlement on some people, unbelievable :rolleyes:

    o_O Yes but normally the new drivers come out first to the release of the game.

    You're in luck. It's worse on the red team.

    Ok no problem I understand that you cannot discuss normally in this place.
    Thank you

    There is nothing to discuss as there is no game to play, only a preload.

    If you want to whine about it on Friday, at least then you'll have some justification as opposed to what you have now, which is none.

    Further, the beta ran fine on existing drivers, so I'm not sure what a new driver is going to bring to the table but I'm sure you can enlighten us ;)

    Oh, and thank you :D

    Considering that BO4 is not in NV's Game Ready program, chances of a Game Ready driver for it releasing prior to game's release is about zero.

    They've released a few driver updates for it though or the beta that is.

    398.82 - SLI profile.
    http://uk.download.nvidia.com/Windows/398.82/398.82-win10-win8-win7-desktop-release-notes.pdf

    398.98 - Stutter fix for the private beta.
    https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4694 (No PDF for hotfix drivers.)

    399.07 - Stutter fix for the private beta. (Hotfix making it into a mainline driver, doesn't really count for much.)
    http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/399.07/399.07-win10-win8-win7-desktop-release-notes.pdf

    399.24 - Game Ready for Call of Duty Black Ops 4 open beta.
    http://us.download.nvidia.com/Windows/399.24/399.24-win10-win8-win7-desktop-release-notes.pdf

    And that's about it, 411.x has nothing for the game so far. If the profile targets BlackOps4.exe it should be good for the main game too but someone would have to verify that via I think NVIDIA Inspector and opening up whatever profile there might be for the game.

    Well, keeping a really messy note with driver changes in it hah.

    It is one of the biggest anticipated games coming out though so AMD and NVIDIA covering it early just looks good for them and with a huge player base even if not everyone keeps drivers and other software up to date and maintained it'll be good to have support for one of the biggest game releases of the year and have support in for it early at that. :)

    I don't foresee performance being a huge issue though but it usually depends on which state the PC port is in and what they add or enhance far as graphical options are concerned, MP tends to be less demanding than the SP campaign however but things like SLI and Crossfire support wouldn't hurt and it does look like NVIDIA might have SLI covered already. (There's nothing for it in the AMD driver profile for the current 18.9.3 release.)

    EDIT: I think Battlefield V is doing alright as well but still somewhere around half the pre-order count of what COD:BO4 has though I think this is measured against all platforms and not PC only and it was a while back so it could have shifted further.

    Nvidia's drivers are already so flawless that the game is already running as good as it can

    Not very relevant to me, I received the free game code with the purchase of my new Asus monitor.

    however, the game will be unlocked at 6am in Italy of tomorrow and no driver yet.

    I didn't need a game driver ready for the BF5 beta, so why should we need one for any other new game? Shouldn't it already be in the drivers?
    Maybe when the game releases we need one? Only time will tell, but expecting game ready drivers for any major launch seems a bit silly to me, and actually a sign of poor programming from those devs.
    Bug fixes and day one patches are fine imo, driver optimizations on a later stage also, but they shouldn't be expected as common.
    In fact, we should expect to run the game at max performance our hardware is capable of. I find it poor to say the least, a driver update six months later improves a game 25% and makes it butter smooth. Had this with GTA5 which seemed to run fine on my setup, but vastly improved after several months with a "magical" driver update from Amd.
