AMD And NVIDIA’s Drivers For No Man’s Sky Are Out

A lot of PC gamers had a pretty miserable time when they loaded up No Man’s Sky over the weekend. And while some .ini tweaks and messing about in the options has fixed problems for many, there are still plenty of issues.

But AMD and NVIDIA have finally come to the rescue, with both manufacturers releasing their game ready drivers for the space sandbox in the last 24 hours.

Starting in alphabetical order, AMD released their Crimson 16.8.2 drivers first. It officially adds support for No Man’s Sky and the open beta of Epic’s MMO, Paragon. It also fixes some crashes in Overwatch when browsing the hero gallery, and a couple of quirks when Freesync is enabled.

On NVIDIA’s side, their 372.54 drivers came out early this morning. They’re optimised for NMS and Paragon, but they’re also the Game Ready Drivers for the spiritual successor to Myst, Obduction, as well as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and F1 2016.

There’s also a beta SLI profile for No Man’s Sky, along with DX11 profiles the new Deus Ex and Space Engineers of all things. But perhaps most importantly, the 372.54 drivers also fix the high DPC latency issues that some had noticed with the GTX 10 series cards.

If you’d like to download the latest NVIDIA drivers, you can head over to the website or download them directly through the GeForce Experience middleware. Those sporting a GPU from Team Red can find the correct driver over on AMD’s support page.
