There were some user complaints that targeted GPU drivers which weren’t working on the new operating system, not so long ago.

Other Windows 11 Insiders were pointing out the fact that the OS is constantly updating their system drivers with obsolete versions.

Nvidia has surely taken notice of all this chatter and has decided to release their first Windows 11 supported driver.

This Nvidia driver is supported on Windows 11

The Nvidia company has released a new Game Ready Driver, version 471.41, that marks the first WHQL supported Nvidia driver for the Windows 11 OS.

This particular driver also brings game support for Red Dead Redemption 2’s DLSS update and Chernobylite.

As you surely know by now, Nvidia makes some of the best graphics cards, and regular driver updates help ensure your system keeps running smoothly.

The introduction of Windows 11 support is the biggest announcement for the update, allowing anybody running the current operating system developer preview to install an official Windows 11 graphics driver for devices running Nvidia GPUs.

With this initiative, Nvidia hopes to reduce the number of bugs seen in the Windows 11 preview.

Some new G-Sync Compatible displays have been also added to the support list as well, among which are the new Samsung LS28AG700N 4K 144Hz display and the Samsung LC27G50A 1440P 144Hz display.

Of course, no Nvidia release would be complete without the bug fixes, which are as follows:

  • Hardware Acceleration is working again on Capture One.
  • Disabled the NoHud/RemovalHud filter from Valorant.
  • Doom Eternal should no longer freeze during gameplay.
  • League of Legends should no longer fail to launch.
  • The mouse cursor should no longer shift colors when connected to certain DSC monitors with HDR.
  • Ansel DOF filter should no longer blur the entire screen in some games.
  • Some displays should no longer be limited to 640×480 resolution after updating drivers.
  • 8K HDMI audio playback should no longer be distorted when changing display modes.
  • Remote Desktop Connection to PC with 10-bit color should no longer corrupt the picture.
  • GPU HDMI audio dropouts should no longer occur when connected to LG’s C9 OLED TV.

If you encounter any problems, see what you can do if the NVIDIA driver is not compatible with your system.
