I cant play my new watch dog game because of this problem...when I go to the game it says u have an outdated driver pls update...but then when i go to GeForce experience it says ur game driver is up to date...pls anyone save me I cant play any game..other than roblox..i have 820m
Your 820m (Fermi) had been marked EOL (End of Life) as of 4/2018 (4/2019 if Kepler variant)
There is no further driver/software support available for these elder chips.https://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3473/~/eol-windows-driver-support-for-legacy-productshttps://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/4780/~/list-of-kepler-series-geforce-notebook-gpus
A "driver" is not going to change the fact that your laptop's hardware does NOT meet the "minimum" specs required.
*Minimum requirements (No DLSS- low visual quality-1080p/30hz)
CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz, AMD Ryzen 5 1400 3.2 GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970/GeForce GTX 1650
Video memory: 4GB
RAM: 8GB (Dual-channel setup)
Hard Disk Space: (45GB)
OS: Windows 10 (64 bit only)
That desktop GTX970 they are referring to.... Well; that card has an approx. +800% greater output than that of your 820m.
Allow me to explain how Nvidia's model numbers work; so that you are better able to understand the differences between them, and how they are classified.
1st thing to note is that there are two differing classes of "consumer" graphics chips offered by Nvidia; "GT" and "GTX".
- "Mx"/"GT" class GPUs are designed for "media" applications such as HD video playback and Flash (think Facebook) games. These perform very poorly in "modern gaming" titles and/or 3D modeling/rendering.
- "RTX"/"GTX" class GPUs are designed for "gaming" in mind
-The 1st number of the model# refers to the "series" and has ZERO indication of performance.
-The 2nd # relates to the card's actual performance within that series.
-The end suffix "ti" refers to a mid-point card (or "half year" since these are usually released 6-8 months after the non-"ti" version). A "ti" card usually has ~20% better performance than the non-ti model and is "halfway" between the non-ti model and the next model up. (ie: GTX1050-GTX1050ti-GTX1060)
-The "GT/Mx" line runs from x10 - x40 (Media grade)
-The "RTX/GTX" line runs from x50 - x90 (Gaming grade)
Example 1: The model# GTX-1650 tells us that it's a "16xx series", "gaming grade", "entry level" graphics processor.
"16"= 16 series
"50"= entry level "gaming" GPU (ie: 50 of 80)
-Then there's the "M" notation... This stands for a "Mobile" (ie: Laptop) chip and in NO WAY compares to its desktop cousin in respect to performance. Typically; mobile chips offer an approx "loss" in performance of 40%-60% when compared to the desktop version.
Geforce 7xxx series= End of Life 4/2016
Geforce 8xxx/9xxx/1xx series= End of Life 4/2016
Geforce 2xx/3xx series= End of Life 4/2016
Geforce 4xx/5xx series= End of Life 4/2018
Geforce 6xx/7xx "mobile" (ie: Laptop/AIO/Tablet) series= End of Life 4/2019
Geforce 6xx/7xx series= Currently supported (not for very long/next on the chopping block)
Geforce 9xx series= Currently Supported
Geforce 1xxx series= Currently Supported
Geforce 16xx series= Currently Supported
Geforce 2xxx series= Currently Supported
Geforce 3xxx series= Currently Supported
