Nvidia has released an update for their Game Ready driver which you can download using the direct download links provided below. This is the Game Ready Driver version 537.34. Before you proceed to download and install this update, we advise that you go through the list of issues as well.
If you don’t already know, Nvidia publishes two types of drivers; Game Ready drivers and Studio drivers. The Game Ready drivers are game-focused, include support for newer games, and other game-related improvements and optimizations. Whereas the Studio drivers are designed for more stability and GPU-focused graphical rendering.
The Game Ready driver includes support for DLSS2 technology in Mortal Combat 1 and Lies of P. However, Nvidia has removed support series 600 GPUs, since they are now outdated and will no longer receive further updates.

How to rollback/downgrade Nvidia drivers
If you have not removed the old Nvidia drivers manually and want to downgrade or roll back to the older version of the driver, you can easily do it using the Device Manager. This will allow you to roll back to the previous version of the driver in case you are encountering issues with the new one.
Just follow the steps below to rollback NVIDIA drivers:
Press the Windows Key + R shortcut keys to open the Run Command box.
Type in “devmgmt.msc” and press Enter to open the Device Manager.
Click “Display Adapters” to expand it.
Right-click the NVIDIA driver and then click Properties.
Switch to the “Driver” tab.
Click “Roll Back Driver.”
Please note that if there is no old driver available in the Windows cache, the “Roll Back Driver” button will be greyed out. Also, Windows only stores one previous version of a driver, so you can only roll back to the one installed before the latest update.
