Drivers

Our new GeForce Game Ready 376.19 WHQL drivers are optimized for the 53 Oculus Rift games launching with and gaining support for Oculus Touch, the Rift's new motion controls.

Game Ready drivers are exhaustively tested in the cited "Game Ready" titles, and the results shared with developers so they can further optimize their games and deploy client-side updates to fix identified issues. In addition, each driver is certified by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs, ensuring high-quality, end-to-end hardware experiences for all our users.
