Latest CSGO Update Brings Several Map Changes; 1v1 Added to Overpass, Nuke
Significant visual changes were made to Cache in this new update.
Recently, there have been some complaints about the performance optimization in the map Cache. The latest update addressed that issue along with lots of new changes to the maps.

In the last CSGO update, a new 1-vs-1 mode was introduced for warmup on Vertigo and Train. In the new mode players would be spawned in 1v1 arenas during warmup resulting in better quality pre-match practice overall due to the smaller arenas and constant gunplay. The devs had also mentioned that they might expand the new mode to other maps based on the response from the community. Today’s update saw the new 1v1 modes being added to the wingman modes of Vertigo and Nuke, which can potentially imply the addition of the mode to matchmaking in near future.

Some maps also underwent changes in the update.  Maps like Chlorine, Anubis, Overpass, Vertigo and Nuke didn’t receive any drastic change but only minor fixes. Cache however, gained itself a number of changes affecting visibility improvements and performance optimization. The HDR settings for the map were also optimized.

Here’s a detailed list of changes in today’s update as mentioned in the blog post by Valve.
