Regular consumers may have to wait until October to get their hands on the final version of Windows 11, but Windows Insiders can already download the update. For Windows Insiders, Intel and Nvidia have released a new graphics driver to improve the overall performance of Windows 11.

As we recently reported, Windows 11 has already hit the RTM status and core OS is done, but it’s still in testing and Microsoft is believed to be working on multiple improvements for the RTM build 22000.

Last week, Intel rolled out a new graphics driver to officially support Windows 11 operating system. Today, Nvidia has published GeForce driver version 471.41 with WDDM 3.0 and Windows 11 support. According to Nvidia officials, this new driver is Windows 11-ready and users in the Windows Insider program should download the updated driver.

“With NVIDIA GeForce Game Ready Driver/Studio Driver branch release 470, we are introducing support for Microsoft Windows 11,” the company said in a forum post.

Although Nvidia driver 471.41 is supposed to improve support for Windows 11, some users told us that their device switches to 8-bit from 10-bit after applying the driver update on preview builds.

In addition to Windows 11 support, Nvidia’s driver update improves support for RTX-enhanced games, such as Red Dead Redemption 2 and Chernobylit. Nvidia has also added support for new gaming monitors and GeForce Experience Optimal Playable Setting profiles.
