NVIDIA Releases GeForce 391.01 Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today released the latest version of their Game Ready driver suite, which aims to bring users' systems up to scratch towards playing the latest games with as much performance and stability as possible. The new 391.01 version of NVIDIA's driver suite brings GameReady improvements that pave the way towards Final Fantasy XV - Windows Edition's release. This driver release packs a bigger punch than just Final Fantasy XV, though; it's also a Game Ready driver release for the upcoming Warhammer: Vermintide 2, and for the upcoming World of Tanks' graphics engine upgrade, which will bring tons of graphics features, updates and improvements to the base World of Tanks experience.

On a second, still important note, this driver release also packs performance improvements for the majority of NVIDIA's series 10 graphics cards in Player Unknown's Battlegrounds. These performance improvements range between the 3% and 7%. For a list of fixed and outstanding issues, as well as trailers for the most relevant additions to this driver release, look after the break. As always, you can download these drivers right here on TPU. Just follow the link below.

I know I am niche community since I am using a gtx 1070 laptop at the moment, but I can confirm the notebook updated drivers works great.

This driver fixed a color profile issue of mine from custom Nvidia control panel color things I do... that was a nice surprise. lol

Too bad WoT is such a pay to win game now, full of cheating and mods used to hack and get illegal info.

Despite that I still play this game and I've been doing so since Beta but I have to admit lots have changed and the Gold ammo ruins the fun. I've invested a lot of money in this game not to play it :)

I've installed the drivers and I can say I feel a bit of an improvement in PUBG a few FPS's (I use MSI Afterburner with on Display stats)
