Nvidia's Latest Driver Adds Support For 'Mass Effect: Andromeda,' 'Rock Band VR'

If you own an Nvidia GPU and plan to play Mass Effect: Andromeda tomorrow, you might want to update your driver. The company released version 378.92, which provides optimizations for two games as well as SLI support for other titles.

The driver “provides optimal gaming experience” for Mass Effect: Andromeda, which comes out tomorrow, as well as Rock Band VR, which launches later this week on March 23. SLI support will also be available for Mass Effect: Andromeda as well as Deus Ex: Breach and Dead Rising 4.
