NVIDIA Working on a Major DirectX 12 Focused Driver Update

NVIDIA is reportedly working on a major driver update that improves performance across the board on games that take advantage of DirectX 12. The company is working with major game studios to improve DirectX 12 performance by up to 16 percent on recent AAA titles, such as "Gears of War 4," "Hitman" (2016), "Rise of the Tomb Raider" and "Tom Clancy's The Division." Even "Ashes of the Singularity" is getting a performance improvement.

At its GeForce GTX 1080 Ti launch event, NVIDIA revealed that its "Pascal" and "Maxwell" GPU architectures are capable of tile-based rendering, a feature that significantly improves video memory bandwidth utilization, leaving open the possibility that the company will enable the feature on other GeForce GTX 900 series and 10-series GPUs, through driver updates. With the GTX 1080 Ti going on sale later this month, one can expect NVIDIA to release new drivers. It remains to be seen if Tiled Rendering is delivered to all compatible GPUs.
