NVIDIA made available a new GeForce driver, which arrived in version 556.12 WHQL and optimization for two games: The First Descendant and Payday 3.

While the first one gets support for ray tracing, DLSS 3.5 technology with Ray Reconstruction and Reflex; the second one – which was released some time ago – received an update to make it compatible with DLSS 3 and Reflex as well.

In addition to these two, the NVIDIA GeForce 556.12 WQHL driver also brings graphical improvements to other experiences such as Bodycam, F1 24, Pax Dei and Soulmask. These can be accessed via the NVIDIA App or GeForce Experience.

It also helps with correcting errors and bugs seen in some titles, such as The Last of Us Part 1, Valorant and Halo Infinite.

It’s important to note that, even if it doesn’t impact you in any way, it’s important to keep your drivers up to date – as NVIDIA GeForce version 556.12 also brings with it all the improvements seen in the latest updates and can make a difference in the performance of your graphics card or iGPU in certain experiences.
