NVIDIA releases 522.25 driver

NVIDIA officially released the Game Ready 522.25 WHQL driver, which supports the RTX 4090 graphics card that was sold out in seconds. Nvidia says the 4090 graphics card can deliver up to 2x the performance of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, and up to 4x the performance in next-generation games that support panoramic ray tracing. These breakthrough levels of performance allow you to enjoy panoramic ray-traced games such as Portal RTX Edition, NVIDIA Racer RTX, and the upcoming ray-traced Overdrive mode, Cyberpunk 2077.

Plus, the GeForce RTX 4090 can up to 1x faster creative applications . The 4090 adds 8th Gen NVIDIA Dual Encoder, which supports the next-generation AV1 decoder for improved quality and optimized bandwidth, thus cutting export time for video productions in half. By adding a GeForce RTX 4090 to your home studio setup, encoding can be up to 40% more efficient, allowing you to stream at higher quality. AI tools will speed up previously tedious tasks, such as rotoscoping tasks in Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, which are now 70% faster on the new GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs than the previous generation.

The driver is built for the first DLSS 3 games and the new DLSS 2 games. Officials say that DLSS 3 is now available and can up to 4x the performance of GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards. If you have a previous generation GeForce RTX graphics card or laptop, you can use DLSS 2 Super Resolution in every DLSS 3 game.

Additionally, Nvidia says the engineering team has designed new DirectX 12 enhancements to speed up performance for massive games. These optimizations are more effective in CPU-constrained situations, allowing the graphics card to be utilized to a greater extent. In Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077 and Forza Horizon 5, game performance can be improved by up to 24%.

DirectX 12 optimizations are available on all GeForce RTX graphics cards and laptops, but the improvements to gaming will vary depending on the specific system setup and game settings used:

  • "Assassin's Creed Valhalla": up to 24% (1080p)
  • "Battlefield 2042": up to 7% (1080p)
  • "Borderlands 3:": up to 8% (1080p)
  • "Call of Duty: Vanguard": Up to 12% (4K)
  • "Control": up to 6% (4K)
  • "Cyberpunk 2077": up to 20% (1080p)
  • F1Ⓡ 22: Up to 17% (4K)
  • "Far Cry 6": up to 5% (1440p)
  • "Forza Horizon 5": Up to 8% (1080P)
  • Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition: Up to 8% (4k)
  • "Red Dead Redemption 2": Up to 7% (1080p)
  • "Shadow of the Tomb Raider": up to 5% (1080p)
  • "Tom Clancy's The Division 2": up to 5% (1080p)
  • "Watch Dogs: Legion": up to 9% (1440p)
