Nvidia release 378.92 driver for improved Mass Effect: Andromeda performance

The jetpack in action

Update March 20, 2017: Nvidia have released the next Game Ready driver for GeForce GPUs. Version 378.92 is specifically for anyone looking to tear across alien worlds in Mass Effect: Andromeda. 

As well as giving Andromeda a performance boost, the new drives add in support for anyone rocking an SLI setup.

The new drivers should also improve the experience for anyone wanting to play BioWare’s space-set RPG in 4k or with HDR turned on.

Original Story March 15, 2017: Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.3.2 is going live tonight for AMD GPU owners. The new drivers will give a boost to Mass Effect: Andromeda, which has aten-hour Origin Accesstrial right now.

The drivers will apparently give around a 12% performance improvement to BioWare’s space-set RPG, according to tests carried out on a Radeon RX 480 8GB.

An AMD optimised tessellation profile has also been added.

Elsewhere, the driver should fix some texture corruption in The Division, and black screen flickering on For Honor should no longer be a thing.

We reached out to Nvidia, but they didn’t have any news on release timings for their drivers. However, they usually get them out pretty promptly, so expect them to follow suit soon.
