Nvidia DCH and game ready drivers

Loscohones

What is the real purpose of game ready drivers?

I understand that they are optimised for certain games but what if i want to play DOOM  on a game ready driver that has been released for a newer game like Anthem? Do i have to change drivers for optimal efficiency for each game (which sounds silly i know) or each driver stacks up these optimisations in every new version?

And...what's the deal with these DCH drivers? I use W10x64 Pro, these drivers, -at least what i understood- are like the new standard, replacing WHQL but....i just can't install them for some reason because my op sys uses the standard version drivers.

If i got it right, these DCH drivers would implement better in W10 than WHQL so what's the deal here....If messing with Nvidia GPU market was not confusing enough, now we got driver  issues to deal with.

Just use the latest driver, nothing really to worry about.

 

They will update the optimizing too, or just click optimize all games.

Honestly update it ever once in a while to the latest and that's it.... the more you update your drivers the higher are the chances of brekaing something at some point and needing to DDU and restart fresh clean
