NVIDIA Makes Available Jurassic World Evolution Game Ready Driver

NVIDIA has just rolled out a new GeForce Game Ready driver, namely version 398.11, which promises to provide the best gaming experience while playing Vampyr and Jurassic World Evolution titles.

Moreover, the release ensures the best possible gaming experience on HDR-capable G-SYNC displays, resolves a few issues encountered with Hitman Pro (SLI/DirectX 12) and Call of Duty: WWII (Surround), and implements several changes as highlighted in the Release Notes.

However, the 398.11 package might still encounter some issues with Overwatch, Shadow Warrior 2, and Gears of War 4 titles, as well as with certain GPU models.

When it comes to compatibility, NVIDIA has provided several files suitable for 64-bit variants of Microsoft’s Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 platforms, for both desktop or notebook configurations.

Therefore, save and run the package specially designed for your computer and operating system, wait for all files required to be made available, and follow all instructions displayed for a complete upgrade.

Last but not least, once the upgrade has finished, it would be a good idea to perform a system reboot to allow all changes to take effect properly. If this task is not requested automatically by the wizard, however, make sure to carry it out manually so that no problems appear.

That said, download NVIDIA GeForce Graphics Driver 398.11, apply it on your device, and enjoy your newly-improved system. Also, check back with us as often as possible to stay up to speed with the latest releases.
