The fruits of this labor can be seen today in our new Game Ready driver, which introduces performance improvements of up to 53% in Destiny 2, giving you even-faster framerates. Alternatively, reinvest this new-found performance by cranking up game settings and the internal rendering resolution for an even-richer experience.
