A benchmark specialist claims that Nvidia is working on improving its graphics drivers. By using an AI, the company could gain huge performance gains.
For several months now, the use of Artificial Intelligence has been on everyone’s lips in technology and promises to work miracles. The field is not new to Nvidia, which has already developed one of the most practical applications of AI for the general public with DLSS.
The firm would have found another field of exploitation for the AI: the writing of its graphic drivers. An area that could provide a huge performance boost to the GeForce RTX.
Between 10 and 30% more performance
The information comes to us from CapFrameX’s Twitter account, captured by 01Net. CapFrameX is software that allows you to measure the performance of a gaming machine and is a tool that many journalists already use.
[Rumor] Nvidia is working on AI-optimized drivers. Release maybe this year (Q1).
▶️ Up to 30% more performance
▶️ Average improvement ~10%
▶️ No information on specific gene
Take this with a grain of salt. If real Nvidia drivers will be real “fine wine”. pic.twitter.com/QGTUL9iK7N

The official account of the tool announces a rumor on its Twitter account: Nvidia would work on AI-optimized graphics drivers. The launch would be scheduled for the beginning of the year and would affect all elements of the pilot: instructions, programming, parameters, use of hardware, monitoring, etc.
This is an area that Nvidia is actively working on. With Ada Lovelace, the architecture of the GeForce RTX 4000, Nvidia offers a new programming for the calculation of shadow to increase performance in games with ray tracing.
The importance of driver optimization
Graphics card drivers have now become one of the essential components to provide a good level of gaming performance. With each major release, Nvidia releases an optimized version of its drivers to try to deliver the best in-game performance.
Over the years, pilots have become more complex and heavy. Nvidia has been singled out in recent years for cumbersome graphics drivers. The company may have found a new method with this AI to write lighter and more efficient drivers.
For now, as CapFrameX points out, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt. Let’s hope the developer got it right, the promise looks great.
