Nvidia has released a new Game Ready Driver specifically for Red Dead Redemption 2’s upcoming PC release.

Although it’ll also do the job for Need for Speed Heat and Borderlands 3, the company adds.

Nvidia’s new 444.12 WHQL driver package enables G-Sync Compatible support on certain 2019 model LG OLED TVs, including its B9, C9, and E9 series.

“Game Ready drivers provide the best possible gaming experience for all major new releases, including virtual reality games,” read the driver’s highlights. “Prior to a new title launching, our driver team is working up until the last minute to ensure every performance tweak and bug fix is included for the best gameplay on day-1.”

Nvidia also offers a basic rundown on how to achieve 60 fps in the Red Dead sequel. At 3840×2160 with the detail level at medium-high, you’ll need a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Comparatively, at 2560×1440 with the detail level at high, Nvidia is recommending a 2070 Super. For 1920×1080 on high, a 2060 will do the trick.

Red Dead Redemption 2 releases for PC on November 5, on Rockstar’s own launcher and the Epic Games Store. A Steam version is coming in December, and it’s coming to Google Stadia at launch in November.
