Yesterday saw the release of Just Cause 3 and Rainbow Six: Siege. As usual, this saw a release of new drivers from Nvidia to give extra support for the resource hungry games.
The new drivers, which are listed as 359.06 – WHQL can be downloaded here. The only notes available for the driver is the usual announcement stating the games that will see an improvement:
“Prior to a new title launching, our driver team is working up until the last minute to ensure every performance tweak and bug fix possible makes it into the Game Ready driver. As a result, you can be sure you’ll have the best day-1 gaming experience for your favorite new titles.

While I’ve not experienced Rainbow Six Siege yet, I’ve put quite a few hours into Just Cause 3 and did notice an improvement in performance from the drivers. One thing that they didn’t fix though was the stuttering caused when the game has to load in game content.
When loading isn’t required the frame rate is fairly stable, even during high action scenes. As with many PC games, this is dependent on the settings chosen to compensate on the restrictions of your system though. As expected from the game is resource heavy, though just why this is the case is something of a mystery.
With these new drivers giving better performance, if there are any other issues these will require a patch the games themselves. These can take more time to come, so hopefully you aren’t experiencing too many problems with the games.
