NVIDIA Optimizes Games with GeForce Experience

A day after ASUS's event last Saturday, NVIDIA, led by its Philippine representative Glenn Serrano, staged its gamers' conference. During the event, NVIDIA promoted GeForce Experience, a new application that automatically optimizes the settings of a game. 

NVIDIA's Philippine representative Glenn Serrano points out the benefits that gamers will gain by using the GeForce Experience application.

NVIDIA does not only provide consumers with the best gaming experience by producing powerful GeForce graphics cards, but also by releasing software applications that allow for maximizing the features and graphics prowess of those cards. In addition to frequently updated drivers, NVIDIA recently released GeForce Experience. A new application designed to optimize, not only the graphics card, but also the entire desktop PC or notebook, GeForce Experience automatically notifies users of latest NVIDIA drivers and software downloads. GeForce Experience also optimizes graphics settings in games based on hardware configuration. NVIDIA performs extensive game tests for various hardware configurations and stores test results and settings on NVIDIA Cloud. GeForce Experience connects to the NVIDIA Cloud and downloads optimized game settings according to users’ PC configuration.

Below is video demonstrating the GeForce Experience application.

At the moment, GeForce Experience is compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista (DirectX 11 Runtime required). Compatibility will be added to GeForce Experience in a later release. Intel processor users must have a Core i3, i5, i7 or higher, while those with AMD-based systems must have an Athlon II, Phenom II, Phenom X4 or higher. Intel Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad users can also gain benefit from GeForce Experience but with limited game support. Full features of GeForce Experience are supported on Fermi- or Kepler-based GeForce 400, 500, and 600 series desktop and mobile GPUs. Meanwhile, support is limited to driver update on the following GPUs:

  • Desktop GPUs: GeForce 8, 9, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 Series or higher.
  • Notebook GPUs: GeForce 8M, 9M, 100M, 200M, 300M, 400M, 500M Series or higher.

Additional hardware requirements include a monitor with 1024 x 768 to 2560 x 1600 display resolution, 2GB RAM, and Internet connectivity. Users must also download and install the R290 driver or higher from NVIDIA.
