Doom Eternal Raytracing

NVIDIA released the GeForce Game Ready 471.11 WHQL drivers yesterday which finally brings RTX raytracing and DLSS in DOOM Eternal, along with many other games also getting RTX support as well. The latest GeForce Game Ready driver update also brings support for several G-Sync compatible displays.

DOOM Eternal is probably one of the bigger titles to support NVIDIA’s Raytracing technology and GeForce Game Ready 471.11 WHQL drivers enable those in-game. LEGO Builder’s Journey, Rust, and F1 2021 are also receiving DLSS support in this update.

The GeForce Game Ready 471.11 WHQL drivers also bring DLSS Linux support to Proton. NVIDIA DLSS support for Vulkan API games is now available on Proton, enabling Linux gamers to use the dedicated AI Tensor Cores of their GeForce RTX GPUs to accelerate frame rates in DOOM Eternal, No Man’s Sky, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood. Support for DLSS-enhanced DirectX titles running via Proton will follow this Fall.
