The release of a new AAA game on PC usually signals the release of a new GeForce Game Ready driver release, and the upcoming release of Forza Horizon 3 is no exception. The new driver also adds what Nvidia's release notes describe as "security updates for graphics components" and an SLI profile for the upcoming game Ark: Survival Evolved.
That's not all, though. This release includes fixes for Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and World of Warcraft. The driver's release notes also indicate the 372.90 drivers should correct issues with lag in games with G-Sync enabled and problems when linking to a Vive headset over DisplayPort. Nvidia's Ansel in-game screen capture feature is now enabled by default in white-listed games, too.
Forza Horizon 3 will be out for Ultimate Edition buyers on September 22, and on September 27 for those who "only" bought the game's standard release. Recommended requirements for the game include an Intel Core i7-3820 CPU, a Nvidia GTX 970 or GTX 1060 graphics card with at least 4GB of VRAM, and 12GB of system memory. Gamers holding onto their Windows 7, 8, and 8.1 license keys need not apply, as Forza Horizon 3 requires DirectX 12 and 64-bit Windows 10.
