At CES 2020, Nvidia released GeForce Game Ready Driver 441.87 and with it comes a few new features, including one that allows you to set a maximum frame rate that will be used by 3D games and applications.

In this release of Nvidia's Game Ready drivers, 'Optimal game settings' have been added for an additional 33 games so that you get the best performance out of your GPU while playing them.

Nvidia has also added a new setting called 'Max Frame Rate' that allows you to cap the frame rate that 3D games and applications are rendered at.

This new feature can be found at NVIDIA Control Panel -> Manage 3D Settings -> Max Frame Rate as shown in the image below.

Set Maximum Frame Rate

Nvidia states that this feature can be used for a variety of reasons including saving power, reducing system latency, and staying in VRR range and has provided the following method to achieve these results:

Saving Power: Enable Max Frame Rate (NVIDIA Control Panel > 3D Settings > Max Frame Rate) and set your power management mode to “Optimal Power”(NVIDIA Control Panel > 3D Settings > Power Management Mode). While in this mode, GPU frequency is reduced and uses less power. For laptop users, Max Frame Rate also works alongside with Battery Boost and Whisper Mode. If either of these modes are enabled at the same time as Max Frame Rate, the NVIDIA Control Panel will cap the framerate to the lowest of the limits.

Reducing System Latency: Enable Max Frame Rate and set your power management mode to “Prefer maximum performance” to reduce latency. While in this mode, the GPU is kept at higher frequencies to process frames as quickly as possible. To maximize latency reduction in GPU bound scenarios where FPS is consistent, set Max Frame Rate to a framerate slightly below the average FPS and turn Low Latency Mode to Ultra.

Staying in VRR Range: Set the Max Frame Rate slightly below the maximum refresh rate of your display to stay within the Variable Refresh Rate range - providing a no-tear, low system latency experience! For the smoothest, no tear experience, set the low latency mode to Ultra and turn VSYNC on.

Other features in version 441.87

In addition to the Max Frame Rate feature, this driver also introduces a few other features:

Variable Rate Super Sampling (VRSS) is a new feature that improves image quality in Virtual Reality games.

Image Sharpening Improvements allow you to toggle the GPU scaling independent of whether Image Sharpening is enabled or not.

Freestyle ‘Splitscreen’ Filter allows gamers to apply filters to only a portion of the screen.

New G-SYNC Compatible Displays

Game Ready for Wolfenstein: Youngblood with Ray Tracing
