Nvidia has recently unveiled its leading-edge Game Ready driver specifically tailored for its GeForce RTX graphic card enthusiasts. Identified as Version 536.99, this fresh addition to Nvidia's library takes a significant leap in supporting Baldur's Gate 3, promising to supercharge the performance of the game on Nvidia's RTX 40-series GPUs.

The claim pushed by Nvidia reveals an average performance boost of 93% once the DLSS 2 feature is enabled. The software giant promises an improved and immersive gaming experience, aiming to enhance the countless hours you would invest in this epic adventure.

To showcase the upgrades, stats from Nvidia indicate an impressive performance leap for the RTX 4060 Ti - a jump from 35.5fps at 4K max settings to a stunning 77.9fps post DLSS 2 enabling. It’s critical, however, to note that this performance transformation isn't a result of driver-specific enhancements but primarily the capacity of the DLSS 2 feature.

Despite Nvidia's silence on the actual gains with comparable configurations, we anticipate the enhancements to be significant. Despite the older RTX 20-series bearing older Tensor Cores, Nvidia is clear that the performance uplift with DLSS would not be as jaw-dropping as the newer RTX cards.

Besides, the new driver extends its prowess beyond Baldur's Gate 3, adding more shimmer to games like The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and Gord. Now, gamers across all three titular platforms will benefit from full DLSS 2 support. Also, the cloud gamers aren't left behind - Nvidia's GeForce Now cloud servers feature Baldur's Gate 3, offering what Nvidia denotes as a "flawless" 4K120Hz experience on RTX 4080s.
