GeForce Windows 10 Driver update for The Phantom Pain

NVIDIA released a new GeForce Game Ready WHQL driver Monday August 31st 2015. This driver coincides with the release of the game Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which NVIDIA offers for free with the purchase of a new high end graphics card.

Opening NVIDIA¬†GeForce Experience shows you that a new driver is available and by clicking Download driver it will update directly from here or you can find version 355.82 on¬† NVIDIA’s website which says:

The latest GeForce Game Ready driver, release 355.82 WHQL, ensures you’ll have the best possible gaming experience for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Mad Max.

It adds game improvements like SLI profiles and Application Profiles to tweak for better game play in The Phantom Pain. On my GTX 970 I did notice an increase in FPS overall, of course the game is locked to 60 frames per second (FPS) so there is already a limit to performance in that way.

The driver will download and then a new screen opens to install the driver. While mine was installing I actually saw a banner ad for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which I guess is no surprise considering the NVIDIA logo shows up in game every time you load for the first time.
