NVIDIA anounced a 10,000 user closed beta test of GeForce Experience, you can sign up over here. GeForce Experience is a new tool that optimizes game settings and helps keep your drivers up to date, NVIDIA says they have built a gaming supercomputer designed specifically to test thousands of different hardware configurations to find the best settings for each game. When you install GeForce Experience, the app will connect to NVIDIA's server and download the best settings for your specific hardware configuration.
One of the last unsolved issues of PC gaming is the difficult and time consuming process of figuring out which graphics settings work well on a particular PC. Unlike consoles, PCs come in hundreds of thousands of configurations with vastly different capabilities; an Ultrabook and a high end desktop PC may differ by as much as fifty-fold in graphics horsepower. To accommodate for this wide variety of hardware, PC games are built with various tweakable graphics settings such as shader quality, texture filtering, ambient occlusion, and so on. Tweaking these settings can be a great way to get the most out of the gaming experience. But even for seasoned gamers, figuring out what each setting does can take many hours of digging through forums and looking through tweak guides.
GeForce Experience is designed to make this process much easier. To help solve this problem, NVIDIA has built a gaming supercomputer designed specifically to test thousands of different hardware configurations to find the best settings for each game. The user simply installs GeForce Experience on their system and the app will automatically download the best settings from the server based on the user’s specific hardware configuration. These settings can be applied per game or across all games as desired.
Another key feature of GeForce Experience is automatic driver downloads. Keeping drivers up to date is one of the best ways to keep your GPU running at peak performance. Previously this has meant periodically checking the web and waiting for a large file to download. GeForce Experience will now do this for you. Every time a new driver is released, it will download it in the background. When complete, you'll get a balloon notification letting you know that a new driver has been downloaded and an option to install it with one click.
