Nvidia’s latest graphics driver, GeForce 526.86 WHQL (“Game Ready”), has been optimized for the first-person shooter Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II from Activision and Infinity Ward. The driver should fix image errors and increase stability as well as offer better support for Nvidia DLSS 2 (tested) and Nvidia Reflex (tested).

Optimized graphics drivers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II

In addition to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II (system requirements), the drivers for Call of Duty: Vanguard (testing) and Forza Horizon 5 (testing) parts of the series also include various minor error fixes. Also fixed an issue that could cause some GeForce GPUs to be stuck in Power State “P0”. An improvement to AV1 decoding on the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 (tested) fixes problems with video content recorded in 8K/60.
