No Man's Sky receives its first optimized drivers from NVIDIA and AMD

Following the somewhat undesirable PC launch of No Man's Sky last week, both NVIDIA and AMD have added support for the title with its latest drivers.

NVIDIA has dropped a new 'Game Ready' driver for its graphics cards, in an attempt to provide optimal performance with a range of upcoming titles. With version 372.54, performance increases can be expected with No Man's Sky alongside upcoming titles such as Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, F1 2016 and Paragon's Open Beta. SLI profiles have also been added for No Man's Sky, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Space Engineers.

Over on the red team, AMD has also released its Crimson 16.8.2 driver with support for both No Man's Sky and Paragon. While the driver doesn't pave the way for any additional titles, a number of fixes are also included.

Both NVIDIA and AMD are offering the drivers through their driver download pages, or automatically installed via their respective desktop applications.
