One of the things that has made NVIDIA on the crest of the wave is its relationship with PC video game developers, this allows them to ensure a level of optimization of the games in their Gaming GPUs that gives them a huge advantage over your direct rival. And it is that if we think about it, it is not only the hardware, but also the optimizations in the games and having good drivers.
NVIDIA is more than ready for the release of Windows 11
On October 5, Windows 11 will be released on sale, and NVIDIA has been supporting the different preliminaries of the operating system with certified WHQL drivers, but version 472.12 WHQL arrives to give full support to NVIDIA graphics cards under the new system. Microsoft operating.
With the new graphics drivers, the green GPUs gain full support for DirectX 12 Ultimate and DirectStorage, in addition, if you have a monitor compatible with G-SYNC HDR you can improve your SDR games with the Microsoft AutoHDR artificial intelligence algorithm. They have also added improvements for users who make use of NVIDIA Broadcast to record and broadcast their games in real time, which benefit from the changes in the new OS.
8 New Game Ready Profiles in NVIDIA Version 472.12 WHQL
We are approaching the time where the video game industry drops all its heavy artillery and as always NVIDIA adds a series of Game Ready profiles. In the 472.12 WHQL drivers they have added 8 new profiles, which correspond to the following games:
- Alan Wake Remastered
- Diablo II: Resurrected
- Far Cry 6
- Hot Wheels Unleashed
- New World
- World War Z Aftermatch
Which of them are you going to play first on your GeForce? As we have said before, NVIDIA’s great advantage over the competition is the optimized profiles in the games that are included with each update of its graphics drivers. But they are not the only ones who have profiles in the new drivers, they have added full support for GeForce Experience in the following games:

- Myst (2021)

Of all the games on both lists, the one that stands out for being in both is Deathloop, a masterpiece of the people of Arkane with a gameplay very similar to his previous works: the Dishonored saga.
And to finish, we have the implementation for the first time of DLAA or Deep Learning Anti-Aliasing, an algorithm that uses the same principles as DLSS, but which is not based on improving the frame rate but on image quality. The first game in which it will be released is in the MMO Elder Scrolls Online, specifically on its test servers.
Fixed issues with NVIDIA 472.12 WHQL drivers
And what would a new update of some drivers be without these not solving problems? The list however is short compared to other updates:
- The stuttering that occurred when playing with ReBAR on an NVIDIA card has been fixed.
- In Battlefield V you can now play the game in HDR, as it no longer hangs.
- In RedShfit3D the clock speed of the graphics card no longer stays fixed in Boost mode in perpetuity.

However, there are a series of problems that they have not been able to solve in this version of the drivers, among them it stands out that you can experience corruption in the graphics while playing Deathloop with Windows HDR active.
