First of all, the 441.08 version of the drive officially supports the GTX 1660 Super, but not yet the GTX 1650 Super, after all, the latter is currently only on paper release, release and launch still have a few days.
In terms of new features, the FreeStyle filter feature and the Ansel recording feature add formal support for The ReShade Post-Processing filter.
ReShade is a free tool that lets players completely change the look and feel of a game by adding additional post-processing features and effects to the game, including sharpening details, ambient light shadows, depth of field, SMAA anti-aliasing, dynamic film particles, automatic saturation, color correction, cross-flushing, multiple blur, and more.
In the future, NVIDIA graphics players will be able to use the ReShade filter directly through the GeForce (GfE) tool, and it’s so simple that you can simply download the official filter pack and release it to The Program Files.NVIDIA Corporation. Inside the Ansel directory, you can then use it in FreeStyle or Ansel.
Note, however, that in multiplayer games, only more than 30 official ReShade filters can be used, and custom filters are not supported to avoid being considered cheating for fairness, while single-player games support more than 70 official filters and any custom filters.
Image sharpening has been greatly upgraded and has now been integrated into the drive control panel, which is a stand-alone feature that performs better and supports all DX9, DX10, DX11, DX12 games, and will support Vulkan, OpenGL games in the future.
Image sharpening can be set to globally on, all supported games are set in a uniform setting, can be set individually for each game, and a lower rendering resolution can be set, and then automatically scaled to a higher display native resolution to reduce performance loss.
There is also ultra-low latency mode (NULL), which has been upgraded to support G-Sync, G-Sync-compatible displays, eliminating the need to tangled between tear-free and low latency.
According to official data, when v-Sync, G-Sync is turned on and NULL is set to Ultra level, system latency can be reduced by 20%, which means that the speed of response from your mouse click to the screen can be reduced by 20%.
