If you play Valorant, make sure to update to the latest NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready 466.11 WHQL driver. NVIDIA has just announced support for NVIDIA Reflex’s Boost Mode in the popular FPS title. Aside from that, NVIDIA also added support for DLSS in Mortal Shell, built-in AI-based noise reduction in OBS Studio as well as support for new G-SYNC Compatible displays with the latest drivers.

Mortal Shell, the latest action RPG from Cold Symmetry, arrives with day-one support for NVIDIA DLSS. It improves performance by up to 130%, allowing gamers to enjoy the full raytraced visual experience without sacrificing performance.

Meanwhile Valorant players will now get to enjoy further improved responsiveness with NVIDIA Reflex. As Valorant is not a particularly demanding title for modern GPUs to handle, it can be quite CPU-bound. In these scenarios, gamers can now enable Boost Mode to improve NVIDIA Reflex’s effectiveness by reducing overall system latency by up to 16% in CPU-bound scenarios.

For streamers who rely on OBS Studio, there will also be an update to add NVIDIA Broadcast’s Noise Removal feature into the popular broadcasting tool. While previously streamers using the latest GeForce RTX GPUs had to run NVIDIA Broadcast to enable the AI-powered noise removal feature, it will now be integrated into OBS Studio itself. It is already available in the OBS Studio 27 beta if you want to try it out right now.


Last but not least, NVIDIA has added six new validated G-SYNC Compatible displays to their ever-growing list of supported monitors. This include the LG27GP950 and MSI MAG301RF gaming monitors as well as the latest LG 2021 B1 4K, 2021 C1 4K, 2021 G1 4K and 2021 Z1 8K series of TVs.

You can download the new GeForce Game Ready 466.11 WHQL driver from NVIDIA’s website or via GeForce Experience.
