AMD and Nvidia have started to optimize the graphics card drivers in anticipation of "Forza Horizon 3." Graphic card drivers are regularly updated for the PC as new games come out since almost every new game raises the bar for its graphics requirements.

For AMD there's the Radeon Software Crimson Edition 16.9.2 update. For this update there's a DirectX 11Crossfire profile for "Dreadnaught" as well as fixes for other issues. The update itself would be in support for "Forza Horizon 3," as Tom's Hardware reports.

The update fixes a known mouse cursor issue, which was reported in some of the RX 400 series cards. A bug is also causing Radeon settings to crash after the Windows 10 Anniversary update when players try to modify a game profile. TechSpot also reports that AMD is working on some issues in "Rise of the Tomb Raider" and "Overwatch."

While AMD is working on issues as well as preparing for "Forza Horizon 3," Nvidia is also doing the same with its graphics cards. The GeForce Game Ready driver package has been updated to version 372.90. This is to optimize the graphics settings for titles like "Forza Horizon 3." A profile for "Ark: Survival Evolved" has been included in the update as well.

For other game fix issues, Nvidia has addressed G-Sync bugs as well as issues with "Rise of the Tomb Raider." Nvidia has also fixed issues on other games such as "Mirror's Edge Catalyst" and "Star Wars: The Old Republic."

As with any update, users are recommended to backup files and data before attempting any update. This is to prevent or minimize data loss if ever the update doesn't turn out well.

"Forza Horizon 3" will be available for the PC and Xbox One on September 23 for those who have the Ultimate Edition. For those who have the regular edition of the game it will be out on September 27.
