The new driver version 536.67 is 644.94 MB in size and supports all GeForce GPUs back to the GTX 700 series. For games like Portal: Prelude RTX, which is now available side by side Ratchet & Clank: Split Out being released on July 26, the driver supports DLSS 3, advanced ray tracing, Nvidia Reflex, and the newest GPU accelerated storage technology called RTX IO.

Without any announcement or promotion, the company quietly launched the RTX 4060Ti 16GB last week. Neither Nvidia nor its board partners sent out any review units, which was quite surprising, almost as if the company didn’t want to talk about its performance.
