Variations on MOBA games are everywhere these days. There's Blizzard's Overwatch, Epic's Paragon, and 2K's Battleborn. And, of course, there are new Nvidia graphics drivers geared up for all this multiplayer action. Please welcome Nvidia's WHQL-certified 365.10 driver release.
If it's not clear by now, Nvidia says the new release is "Game Ready" for the titles mentioned above. Our own Nathan "Jr. Damage" Wasson has given his preliminary seal of approval to Overwatch and Battleborn in particular. There's also good news for motorsport simulation fans: Forza Motorsport 6: Apex will enter open beta this Thursday, and the drivers also include optimizations for it. The game looks to be gorgeous, and Nvidia has helpfully published recommended system specifications for running it.
Nvidia says gamers will need at least a Core i3-4170 CPU and a GeForce GTX 470 graphics card to run Forza. For good performance at 1080p and a target of 60 FPS, Nvidia recommends a Core i7-3820 and a GeForce GTX 970. Finally, for those lucky enough to be running a 4K display, Nvidia says a Core i7-6700K and a GeForce GTX 980 Ti should be good enough to maintain 60 FPS at that resolution.
