Updating a graphics card
However, this is not the case with updated drivers for your graphics card, also known as a GPU or video card.
NVIDIA and AMD both frequently release new graphics drivers that often give major performance improvements, particularly for newer games.
Automatic driver software can diagnose driver problems The Driver Updates software is linked to our database, which will scan for out of date or incompatible graphics drivers.
This software will then locate and download updates to bring your drivers up to the latest version.
Automatic Updates eliminates the bulk of this process.While newer games like Far Cry 3 saw significant improvements (up to 38% on some hardware), even older games like Skyrim and Starcraft II saw a significant increase in performance.NVIDIA may be overstating the performance increases you will get, and it probably won’t be as pronounced on older graphics cards. Some newer games may refuse to run with old, unoptimized graphics drivers installed.New drivers are released frequently and by updating these drivers you can make the most of your new card.
My graphics device is performing poorly Hardware problems or odd visual effects are usually the result of miscommunication between your graphics card and the driver responsible for system translation.Once downloaded you will need to double click on the downloaded file and follow the instructions that pop up on-screen to install the new driver on your device.
