    Game Ready Drivers are timed with the release of major game releases. Next major game releases are taking place towards the end of the month.

    AFAIK driver is fine by my standards.
    All working fine, performance is on point, games runs without a hitch.

    One thing tho is without HAGS the Martix Demo (UE5 City sample) is not working.

    I wouldn't call it a "major" release though. I mean, for me it is, but I think he meant other titles. MI can run on any system and does not require particular attentions imo.

    It really wasn't a "major release".

    What a dumb idea, why not work in general, i mean on stabilisation, performance, fixing bugs, working on a specific game does nothing sometimes its worst, even if it works the gain is minimal ??

    is good driver, just like 517.17.. Im still on old 980ti and Destiny2 plays much better, not a single brokoli or other random crash yet, 512.xx was ok, then all r515_xx crashed except 516.79.

    Who said they're not doing all that? There is a list called "Fixed Issues".

    There isn't anything they can do software wise to turn your card into a 3090, but you're only here to push buttons and act like a tool so your deep thoughts and opinions are irrelevant.

    Maybe the problem is not the drivers, but the cards, not as strong as old days :)

    Yeah, but they always fix what they want and not what people are complaining about, some are waiting for specific fixes for months, beside of "tweaking" driver for new games that in fact do nothing :D

    At launch window, 4 out of 4 to be accurate, plus a dumb price hike!

    A typical Sony's moment. ;)

    i played Saints row with this driver it worked fine and smooth,no glitches or what so ever there was no need for a new driver imo...
    Do you have issues, ?

    The issue is that the game is a buggy piece of garbage that no magic driver is going to fix.

    i played rdr2 on a 399.24 driver with my old gtx 1060
    the game run perfect. from start to finish.
    thats a 2018 driver perfectly functioning in a late 2019 port.
    i think game ready driver thing is irrevelant for most cases, i dont think it would be needed for every game. maybe there are outliers here and there, but most games perform okay without those profiles.
