In the past, NVIDIA has typically released more full-featured Game Ready driver updates alongside major titles (one was released for Cyberpunk 2077 last month), which made sense, but had the side effect of forcing players to wait for sometimes-important bug fixes. Thankfully, going forward, it sounds like we’re going to be seeing more regular hotfixes to solve bugs and issues in a more expedient manner. That said, according to NVIDIA, these hotfixes are put through a “much abbreviated” Q&A process, so if you want to play it as safe as possible, you should just wait for the next big Game Ready WHQL-certified driver.
