Hogwarts Legacy and Nvidia

The first step, if you haven’t done it yet, is to update your video card drivers.
You will probably need to update them again soon, when the manufacturer launches the optimized drivers for Hogwarts Legacy.
The second step is to go to the Hogwarts Legacy graphics options and disable vertical synchronization (V-SYNC).

Choose Hogwarts Legacy as the software to be personalized.

Scroll the list down and select the low latency mode line.
Change to ultra.
