Heads up, if you will be playing Diablo 4 on PC and have a Nvidia graphics card, you should download the latest Game Ready driver. It’s available now and promises to bring many of Nvidia card’s performance boosting features to the demon-slaying RPG.
Diablo 4 will have day one support for DLSS 3 and Nividia Reflex. With DLSS 3 Frame Generation, you can run Diablo 4 on max settings from 113 to 229 frames per second, depending on which 40 Series graphics card you have. Even on Laptops, DLSS 3 can boost the frame rate to over 80 fps at max settings and over 120 fps at 1080p.
Nvidia Reflex reduces system latency, shortening the gap between hitting a button and on-screen action. According to Nvidia, Reflex reduces latency in Diablo 4 by 67%. You’ll have to wait on ray tracing; Nvidia promised the feature would come “at a later date.“
Even if you don’t have a top-of-the-line graphic card, it is still best to install the latest driver. The included changes and fixes should your PC better able to handle any new releases. Diablo 4 launches on June 6, but you’ll get to play four days early if you picked up the Digital Deluxe or Ultimate Editions. The game driver also boosts compatibility with the System Shock remake, which launched today.
