Game Optimization

Nvidia’s Gaming Optimization feature takes into account your CPU, GPU and display to automatically apply optimized game settings that maximize image quality and framerate. These optimal settings have been determined using data compiled by thousands of NVIDIA users and research projects, making them accurate and up-to-date as possible.

GeForce Experience’s Game Ready Drivers provide features such as Direct Lighting Substitution System (DLSS) and Ray Tracing, enabling you to achieve higher framerates and image quality in games. Therefore, keeping your drivers updated so your system can take full advantage of all these new technologies is vitally important.

GeForce Experience app makes it easy to locate and download the latest drivers by providing access to them in its “Drivers” tab. Simply click “Check for Updates”, or download via “Download” when available.

GeForce Experience’s optimization feature lets your PC run games more smoothly by rendering frames at lower resolution before upscaling for better image quality – helping improve performance while decreasing image artifacts in games that feature intricate details. This can reduce performance issues as well as eliminate image artifacts for enhanced gaming experiences.

The app also allows you to monitor and tweak your system’s latency, or the amount of time it takes for actions to appear onscreen, which can have an effect on how responsive game play can be and make it hard for characters to connect with one another. By decreasing system and display latency, you can increase reaction times while improving aim accuracy.

GeForce Experience also includes tools for those wishing to stream or record gameplay for YouTube, such as recording and encoding in-game footage, taking screenshots, or creating video collages of game play. In addition, NVIDIA’s NVENC hardware encoding technology provides offloading computation burden while streaming/recording and can reduce lag by up to fourfold!

Nvidia provides this app free of charge on their website, though to install it correctly you will require an Nvidia graphics card installed in your PC. Once it’s up and running you can launch the program to begin taking advantage of all its features.

Game Recording

Game recording for GeForce Experience is an extremely useful feature that enables you to quickly create GIFs, upload them directly to social media like Facebook and Weibo, or record high-quality videos of your gameplay – made possible thanks to Nvidia GPU hardware encoding capabilities.

Nvidia GeForce Experience makes streaming your gameplay simple and accessible for the world to see. Use its Broadcast LIVE feature to stream directly to services like Facebook, Twitch and YouTube without impacting performance impact or compromising video quality. Kepler GPUs have been optimized with this feature in order to reduce stream performance impact as much as possible without compromising video quality.

As soon as your gameplay video is recorded to file, take advantage of Nvidia In-Game Camera image stabilization software to reduce blurring in your videos and edit later if needed. It is an invaluable asset if you plan to record high-quality gameplay videos to edit later!
