Game Ready 460.89 WHQL Driver
Recently Nvidia releases the new Game Ready 460.89 WHQL Driver which provides support for the Quake II RTX v1.4.0 update which enables support for the new Vulkan Ray Tracing extensions.
Game Ready for Quake II RTX with Vulkan Ray Tracing
Quake II RTX has just been updated to v1.4.0, introducing new improvements and support for platform-agnostic Vulkan Ray Tracing extensions.
Quake II RTX was initially released in June 2019, reimagining the classic game’s graphics with amazing ray-traced lighting, shadows, and reflections. With the 2019 release coming well ahead of cross-vendor Vulkan APIs for ray tracing, Quake II RTX implemented ray tracing using NVIDIA’s ‘VKRay’ extensions.
This past month, the Khronos standards body formally released new cross-vendor KHR ray tracing extensions for Vulkan. So with this exciting development, NVIDIA is releasing a new Quake II RTX game update and Game Ready Driver to take advantage of the new Vulkan extensions. Now, any GPU with support for Vulkan Ray Tracing can experience Quake II RTX in all its path-traced glory.
For GeForce RTX gamers, simply update to our newest Game Ready Driver from the Drivers tab of GeForce Experience, and update to the latest version of Quake II RTX, either on Steam, our website, or GitHub.
If you experience any technical issues with the new GeForce Game Ready 460.89 WHQL driver please post a detailed report on the GeForce.com Driver Feedback Forum, where our Customer Care team can better assist you.

[Nicehash, other mining software]: Mining software does not recognize the NVIDIA GPU. 
[GeForce GTX 1080 Ti]: The desktop screen may flicker. 
[Steam VR game]: Stuttering and lagging occur upon launching a game. 
[HDR]: With HDR enabled, black levels are incorrect. 
[G-SYNC][NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture]: GPU power consumption may increase in idle mode on systems using certain higher refresh-rate G-SYNC monitors. 
[YouTube]: Video playback stutters while scrolling down the YouTube page. 
[Notebook]: Some Pascal-based notebooks w/ high refresh rate displays may randomly drop to 60Hz during gameplay. 
[G-Sync][Vulkan Apps]: Performance drop occurs when using G-SYNC and switching from full-screen mode to windowed mode using the in game settings. 
To workaround, either launch the game in windowed mode directly or disable G-SYNC.
[GeForce RTX 3070][Clone Mode]: When the resolution is set to 2560×1440 @ 144Hz, the performance state is stuck at maximum performance. 
[NVIDIA Turing or later][Windows Movies and TV Player]: When playing a 4k video in fullscreen mode on a 2560×1440 HDR monitor, the video extends beyond the edge of the screen.
