GeForce Drivers Add Ambient Occlusion Support for Top Game Titles


PC gamers rejoice, as yet more support comes your way if you’re using an nVidia graphics card. These beta drivers look to improve your experience yet more. You can download the beta drivers now, if you want.

They’re recommended if you’re using your PC to play the new Counter Strike: Global Offensive, Darksiders 2, Guild Wars 2 or MechWarrior Online, and they add the realistic ambient occlusion shadowing to all of those games, and it adds extra support for Darksiders 2 in the forum of MSAA and CSAA anti-aliasing.

If you don’t speak tech-geek, then it makes your cutscenes and animations smoother.

There’s also improvements available if you’re SLIing your video cards. Plenty of titles will see lots of performance enhancing profiles from SLI users, the likes of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, Orcs Must Die! 2, Planetside 2, Shogun 2: Total War, Sleeping Dogs and The Secret World.

All of those will benefit from the enhanced profiles, as we’ve already seen with Sleeping Dogs and Borderlands 2.

If you want to know more about the drivers, then check out the full release notes on the nVidia website.
