How to update graphics drivers for Warzone

If you find that you’re facing problems with your FPS or display when playing Warzone, then you’ll need to make sure that you have the latest versions of your graphics drivers. Ensuring that they’re up to date will let you avoid any problems running Warzone.

How to update NVIDIA graphics drivers

If you have an NVIDIA graphics card, the GeForce Experience app will update your graphics drivers for you:

  1. Download GeForce Experience through NVIDIA.com.
  2. Open GeForce Experience.
  3. Select the ‘Drivers’ tab.
  4. Click ‘check for updates’ in the upper right corner.
  5. If an update is available, follow the steps.

How to update AMD graphics driver

If you have an AMD GPU, you can use the Radeon Settings to update your drivers:

  1. Right-click on your desktop.
  2. Select AMD Radeon Settings.
  3. Click on the Home icon.
  4. Click ‘New Updates’ on the bottom left.
  5. Select ‘check for update.’
  6. If an update is available, follow the steps.

How to use NVIDIA DLSS in Warzone

Warzone features NVIDIA DLSS software to boost your FPS while keeping the resolution high, so if you have an RTX graphics card, here’s how to use the handy feature in Infinity Ward’s battle royale.

  1. Launch Warzone.
  2. Head to Settings and navigate to the Graphics tab.
  3. Select Quality then open the Upscaling/Sharpening drop-down list.
  4. Click on NVIDIA DLSS.
  5. For more options, click Show More where you can select the quality and strength.

If you’re playing Warzone at 1440p, you should only need the Quality or Balanced settings, but if you’re playing on 4K resolution, or are suffering from a low frame rate, you can use Performance or Ultra Performance to squeeze out as many frames as possible.
