NVIDIA releases the GeForce 382.33 WHQL driver ready for Tekken 7 and more

Recently NVIDIA unleashed its latest Game Ready driver, release 382.33. If you’ve ever wondered what WHQL means, it stands for Windows Hardware Quality Labs, a Microsoft facility that tests and certifies third-party hardware and driver products for compatibility with Windows operating systems. Products that meet the compatibility requirements are then allowed to display Windows logos on product packaging, advertising and collateral and other marketing materials, indicating that the product has met the standards of Microsoft and that the product has been designed to work with the Windows operating systems. Once a product has received the WHQL logo it is listed on the Microsoft Hardware Compatibility List. Game Ready means it’s been optimized for the newest AAA games that are the highest selling or have the highest production values. In this case, the driver supports the recently announced Tekken 7 and Star Trek Bridge Crew
