Nvidia is releasing an important driver update today for those on the latest Windows 11 2022 Update. The new Game Ready 517.48 driver fixes an issue with the GeForce Experience overlay causing stuttering and frame rate drops with Microsoft’s latest Windows 11 2022 Update.

Many Nvidia users had reported the issues last week, and Nvidia quickly issued a beta fix ahead of this new driver today. Alongside the big fixes for Windows 11, this new driver also includes additional Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) support for Microsoft Flight Simulator.

“Developer Asobo Studio has just launched Sim Update 10, with the integration of NVIDIA DLSS 2,” explains Nvidia’s Andrew Burnes. “To take full advantage of this technology, our new Game Ready Driver is a required update.”

This latest driver is also optimized for Overwatch 2, which arrives as a free-to-play title on October 4th. Nvidia’s latency-reducing Reflex technology will also be supported in Overwatch 2. Four more G-Sync compatible displays are also supported in this new driver, including Sony’s new Inzone gaming monitors.

LiveWire has completed its merger with a blank-check company and will make its debut on the New York Stock Exchange today. Harley-Davison CEO Jochen Zeitz called it “a proud and exciting milestone for LiveWire towards its ambition to become the most desirable electric motorcycle brand in the world.” Hopefully it also manages to avoid the cash crunch of other EV SPACs, like Canoo, Arrival, Faraday Future, and Lordstown.

There’s a surprise in the sky tonight.

Jupiter will be about 367 million miles away from Earth this evening. While that may seem like a long way, it’s the closest it’s been to our home planet since 1963.

During this time, Jupiter will be visible to the naked eye (but binoculars can help). You can check where and when you can get a glimpse of the gas giant from this website.

Missing classic Mario?

One fan, who goes by the name Metroid Mike 64 on Twitter, just built a full-on 2D Mario game inside Super Mario Maker 2 complete with 40 levels and eight worlds.

The US might still force TikTok into a data security deal with Oracle.

The New York Times says the White House is still working on TikTok’s Trump-era data security deal, which has been in a weird limbo for nearly two years now. The terms are basically the same: Oracle plays babysitter but the app doesn’t get banned. Maybe it will happen now, though?
