Game Ready For The GeForce RTX 3060

GeForce RTX 3060, the newest member of the GeForce RTX 30 Series family, is out now. Featuring 10x the ray tracing performance of the GeForce GTX 1060, and double the rasterized performance, the new GeForce RTX 3060 offers previous-gen gamers a massive upgrade that’ll get them playing the latest and greatest games with fast frame rates, high fidelity graphics, and game-changing features like ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS, NVIDIA Reflex, and Resizable BAR.

If you add the GeForce RTX 3060 to your system, download and install our new Game Ready Driver to enable full support for our technologies and experience-enhancing features.

Game Ready For The Outriders Demo

Outriders, from Square Enix and People Can Fly, is a hotly tipped single-player and co-op sci-fi RPG shooter. Ahead of the game’s official April 1st release, you can download and play a meaty demo that is available today from the official Outriders website.


To ensure you have the best possible experience in the high octane, hectic action shooter, download and install our newest Game Ready Driver.

Game Ready For NVIDIA DLSS In New Titles

Only GeForce RTX GPUs feature Tensor Cores, dedicated AI processors that power revolutionary technologies such as NVIDIA DLSS, which greatly accelerates frame rates. With faster performance you can enjoy smoother gameplay, or reinvest those frames in higher detail levels, higher rendering resolutions, and higher ray tracing settings, giving you the most immersive experience possible.

Each month new games add support for NVIDIA DLSS, and February is no different, with NVIDIA DLSS being introduced to Nioh 2 - The Complete Edition and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord. With DLSS, instantly improve your experience by boosting frame rates by up to 58% with a single click:

Game Ready For NVIDIA Reflex In Rainbow Six Siege Test Server

NVIDIA Reflex provides a free upgrade to a huge number of GeForce gamers by reducing latency and improving responsiveness on GeForce GTX 900 and newer GPUs. Shots fire faster, you can react faster to enemy attacks, and peeker’s advantage is minimised, giving you a greater chance of victory in competitive games.  

Following the addition of Reflex to Apex Legends, Call of Duty, Fortnite, Valorant and other competitive titles, the tech is now available on the Rainbow Six Siege Test Server and will release everywhere at a later date.

By simply enabling NVIDIA Reflex on in the options menu, system latency is reduced by up to 25%, giving you a split-second advantage in the heat of battle:
