The latest GeForce Game Ready Driver includes DLSS and Ray Tracing support for the highly anticipated Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. The driver also offers support to games such as Age of Empires IV, Battlefield 2042 Early Access, Call of Duty: Vanguard, DOOM Eternal, Forza Horizon 5, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, and more.

How can you know if the system you have meets the requirements? Well, you can be sure that you're going to get the best experience by getting one of NVIDIAs laptop/desktop system bundles. However, if you already built a system of your own and want to see how it stacks up, NVIDIA prepared a chart with the recommended specs needed for when the game comes out:

With ray traced reflections enabled, glass accurately reflects characters and surroundings, creating a more immersive visual experience. Water has more accurate and detailed reflections. And the many metallic surfaces of the game’s alien environments reflect their surroundings and the action, greatly improving image quality throughout the game.

You can look at the improvements made by NVIDIA's driver in their DLSS video.

NVIDIA's latest Game Ready Driver also includes optimizations and enhancements for the games that will be available in the next few weeks. The spotlight of the optimizations is Chivalry 2 with the inclusion of DLSS support.
