“We don’t do driver QA testing through crowd-source with public betas, we do it ourselves.”

NVIDIA’s Game Ready Driver initiative started way back in 2014 and since then the company has managed to be at the forefront of game readiness for every AAA title. Recently, the GPU maker shared its own stats showing that they lead in 2021 and 2022 with the highest number of ready-to-game driver versions.

NVIDIA is game-ready with its driver releases and targeting AMD and Intel for gamers QA testing through public BETAs

The NVIDIA Game Ready Driver experience is designed to ensure that every newly released AAA title receives the best day-0 support. These drivers have introduced performance improvements, bug fixes, and various QOL improvements over the years.

We’ve also seen the launch of brand new features in both gaming and creator apps. While other companies have worked hard to match the level of functionality NVIDIA offers in its Game-Ready Driver & Experience suite, gamers still use NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX and GTX hardware solely because of the green team’s GPU driver support.

In a chart shared by NVIDIA, the company shows that in 2021 alone it had 20 game-ready driver releases (all of which were WHQL certified) and is adding support for 75 games. AMD had 29 versions of which 24 were BETA drivers and only supported 37 games, while Intel had 14 driver versions which contained 5 BETA versions and only supported 5 games.

In 2022, NVIDIA has a total of 18 drivers, of which are WHQL certified (Non-BETA) and provide support for 69 titles. AMD has 25 drivers, 19 of which are BETA and 29 support games, while Intel had 19 drivers, 13 of which are BETA, adding support for 28 titles.

Drivers: GeForce Game Ready drivers are unrivalled

NVIDIA created the Game Ready driver program in 2014 to provide the best possible gaming experience and it is the industry standard for game support and reliability. We don’t crowdsource driver QA testing with public betas, we do it ourselves. That’s why every GeForce Game Ready driver is WHQL certified by Microsoft.

NVIDIA has taken up arms against AMD and Intel by demonstrating the level of commitment they offer gamers with their driver suite. The company has also released various firmware fixes for its latest GeForce RTX graphics cards over the past few months since its launch.

To be “future-proof,” a GPU must support today’s next-gen features in a meaningful way

Gamers next GPU should be ready for today’s best games and “future-proof” with:

  • dedicated RT cores powerful enough to handle ray tracing effects
  • an AI-powered performance multiplier like NVIDIA DLSS 3
  • a ton of rasterization horsepower
  • all the cool extras that add value to consumers

Technologies like RTX, AI-assisted Upsampling (DLSS), RTX Voice, Broadcast, Reflex and various other features were first introduced to gamers by NVIDIA. AMD has also announced its own FSR 3 technology that will use AI support, while Intel’s own XeSS also uses AI hardware. NVIDIA has been in DLSS for 3 generations with DLSS 3 and the best is yet to come!
