Nvidia has launched a new set of graphics card drivers optimised for the new Street Fighter V game, due to be released today. The GeForce Game Ready 361.91 WHQL drivers for Street Fighter V are available via the green team's GeForce Experience software right away (or by searching Nvidia's drivers downloads page). These game-ready drivers also include optimisations and tweaks for the soon-to-be-released Arma 3 update, next weekend's Hitman beta, and Monster Hunter Online.

The recommended PC specifications for Street Fighter V include; 8GB of RAM, an Intel Core i5-4690K and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 graphics card. With these components, or equivalent/better, you should be able to enjoy "max-quality visuals, consistent 60 FPS gameplay, and high-resolution rendering on screens of any size with Dynamic Super Resolution," says Nvidia. Additionally, using the GeForce Experience will enable you to get up and running with the best settings with zero setup time.

Looking through the release notes for the GeForce 361.91 WHQL driver reveals that it also aims to provide an "optimal experience for ARMA 3, Street Fighter V, Monster Hunter Online, and HITMAN (Beta)". Furthermore there have been the following added or updated SLI profiles:

  • Assassin's Creed Syndicate - SLI profile changed (with driver code as well) to make the application scale better
  • Bless - SLI set to SLI-Single
  • Need for Speed - profile EXEs updated to support trial version of the game
  • Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2 - SLI profile added
  • XCOM 2 - SLI profile added (including necessary code change)

A number of bug fixes are welcomed to 361.91, solving the following issues:

Windows 10 Fixed Issues

  • TDR on Illustrator CC 2015 with drivers post Release 353. [1726408]
  • [361.75] Enabling NVIDIA Surround after a driver clean install causes NVIDIA Control Panel to crash. [1724062]

Notably, above, the peculiar graphics card eject bug was previously addressed in a Hotfix driver update. Meanwhile, there are a good number of known issues that the driver team are still addressing.

Looking forward to SFV, but all the preorder DLC bonuses are annoying. I was getting battered online in SFIV using a 360 controller, but have an XBO controller now with a lovely clicky d-pad, so my game has stepped up significantly.
I don't like the direction the new Street fighter is going with the Style of the new game. I mean have you looked at the character faces? Ryu / Ken omg UGLY.. and the female characters with massive tits
And the over the top colour scheme, think I'll skip buying this. Thou this made me chuckle

I don't give the slightest monkey's what's going on, really… I see the icon in my SysTray and just update the driver, same as with any other notice of available updates to something.

I rarely care that it's some Game Ready one, let alone notice which Game it is Ready for… Most will be £50 or more, plus DLC and if I still have any interest after six months, I'll pick them up for a tenner in the Steam sale.
