New GeForce and Resizable BAR drivers for NVIDIA

In conjunction with the launch of the GeForce RTX 3060, NVIDIA has released a new driver version, the 461.72 WHQL, which introduces support for the new card, including the Resizable BAR functionality (for the latter only).

Other new features include optimizations for the Outriders demo, DLSS support for Nioh 2 – The Complete Edition and Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord, as well as NVIDIA Reflex for Rainbow Six Siege.

Fixed stuttering issues for Hitman 2 and Edge of Eternity with G-SYNC enabled, performance drop with Vulkan apps when switching from windowed to full screen mode with G-SYNC enabled, crash with X4: Foundations on Windows 10 1803, the flickering when playing a Blu-ray via HDMI and the failure to recognize LG CX OLED TVs as G-SYNC compatible.

As far as Resizable BAR is concerned, support is now available (as already mentioned,) only for the GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce RTX 30 series laptops.

By using an advanced feature inherent in the PCI Express specification, Resizable BAR can increase performance in some games.

Support for other desktop GPUs will arrive in late March (when specific drivers will be released) and requires, in addition to a compatible AMD or Intel CPU, a BIOS update for both the motherboard and the video card.

The new GeForce RTX 3060, of course, has an already updated BIOS to take advantage of this functionality and the support offered by these new drivers.

Below is the list of chipsets and CPUs that will support NVIDIA Resizable BAR or more commonly SAM (Smart Access Memory) functionality for GeForce RTX 30 series desktop GPUs.

The new BIOS for the motherboards of the following manufacturers are available since yesterday:

  • ASUS
  • ASRock
  • COLOFUL
  • EVGA
  • GIGABYTE
  • MSI

The titles already compatible with Resizable BAR are:

  • Assassin’s Creed Valhalla
  • Battlefield V
  • Borderlands 3
  • Forza Horizon 4
  • Gears 5
  • Metro Exodus
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Watch Dogs: Legion

After updating all components and installing the Game Ready drivers, you can verify that Resizable BAR works on your system by opening the NVIDIA Control Panel.

Once everything has been updated, just click on “system information” at the bottom left and check that Resizable BAR is enabled.
