NVIDIA today released GeForce 398.82 WHQL drivers
. These drivers are game-ready for the week's hottest game releases: "World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth," and "Monster Hunter: World." Nvidia boasts that their GTX 1060 will handle World of Warcraft at 60FPS at 1080p, a GTX 1070 is great for 1440p, and the GTX 1080 is perfect for 4K gaming in the title. These are all done with the in-game settings on the "High" preset.
I didn't see mention of what settings will be needed for Monster Hunter: World to achieve 60 FPS though ;-) The drivers also add or update SLI profiles for "Call of Duty: Black Ops 4" and "World of Warcraft." The drivers fix color corruption seen on "World of Warcraft: Legion" on machines with G-Sync HDR and Windows HDR mode enabled. The drivers also bring back graphics settings in "Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus," and missing G-Sync Control Panel on machines with G-Sync Surround.
If you like World of Warcraft, you like stats, so here's some: at 1920x1080, our benchmarking concluded with an average framerate of 65.4 on the GeForce GTX 1060, when paired with an i5-6600K. A minimum framerate of 53 was the lowest we saw, and the frametime plot was near-perfect, indicating performance was smooth and stable. At 2560x1440, the GeForce GTX 1070 gave us a 65.6 FPS average, with a minimum of 52, and equally-smooth frametimes . And at 4K, it's recommended that players step up to an i7 for a perfect 60 frames per second on a GeForce GTX 1080, with the occasional dip to 51 FPS.
