NVIDIA Releases GeForce 466.27 Game Ready Drivers

NVIDIA today released the latest version of its GeForce Game Ready drivers. Version 466.27 WHQL adds optimization for Metro Exodus PC Enhanced Edition. This includes additional raytraced effects, and support for DLSS 2.1. Optimization is also added for Mass Effect Legendary Edition and Resident Evil Village. The drivers also add support for the DirectX 12 Agility SDK, and Shader Model 6.6.

The drivers also confirm the existence of a new hardware revision of the GeForce RTX 3060 12 GB graphics card, which will be generally available from mid-May, 2021. These cards will require at least GeForce 466.24. The revision will likely come with a different device ID from the original RTX 3060 12 GB, and will re-engage the hash-rate limiter. Read more about this card in our article from earlier this week, here. A handful bugs were also fixed. These include performance issues related to NVIDIA Reflex and Rainbow Six Siege; an artificial FPS cap when V-Sync is off on displays connected via HDMI 2.1; and an application crash with RigidGems Prepar3D. Grab the drivers from the link below.

Official website says DLSS 2.0, not 2.1. Hope this is a mistake...

Only wonder what kind of improvements can this set of drivers bring to ME Legendary.

It's an UE3 game on AI upscaled assets, with ME1 being the only one title being massively reworked, while ME3 will struggle to beat old ME3 with all texture/content mods out there.

Don't get me wrong. I'm overjoyed that ME Trilogy is coming back, because that's my heart and soul, still many assets in previews are quite disappointing compared to what fans did over past few years on PC.
