The latest WHQL drivers from NVIDIA, version 364.47, were released yesterday with Game Ready support for multiple upcoming games. Absent from our post yesterday is the fact that NVIDIA also added support for version 1.0.3 of the Vulkan kernel. Vulkan is the successor to OpenGL created by the Khronos Group, with version 1.0 made available just last month. As the API was just recently released there aren't many games that take advantage of it, but with this release "Nvidia has positioned itself advantageously against the competition as a result of being the first company to support both DirectX 12 and Vulkan in a complete, non-beta state."
