Nvidia GeForce Experience

Is anyone else using GeForce Experience to optimize their game settings?

I downloaded the latest drivers today, and it included the experience app.

It's a nice app that applies optimal settings with one button click. That is, if your game is supported.

Re: Nvidia GeForce Experience

It works quite well actually.

It auto detects games and applies the suggested optimal settings with a single click. I don't have a Shield, but I think the streaming settings are also located within.

I do believe "optimal settings" depend on your video card.

Re: Nvidia GeForce Experience

I'm always concerned about GPU vendor optimisations and tweaks as to whether they sacrifice too much eye candy to get the performance up. Their rep is impacted more by the fps figures than the IQ.

Typically i'll tweak the filtering settings myself as well as the game settings; such as ilighting, shadows, particles and, when required, textures. Sometimes takes me a while to get it just right.

Re: Nvidia GeForce Experience

IIRC, GeForce Experience tries to optimize the graphics settings with a target framerate of 40-60 fps. It will choose several most intense scenes within a game and optimize for those with a min of 40 fps. For the rest of a game, you will experience higher framerate but with less than optimal graphics details.

In previous version, nothing is adjustable. But the latest v1.8 allows you to adjust with a slider. One end is 'performance' (ie higher framerate) and the other end is 'quality' (ie graphics details. It will show its chosen optimal position in this slider but you can slide it left or right.

I have not tried this version. I had a previous version before and I did not use it at all because it was not detecting my SLI setup correctly.

I think this utility can be used as a good starting point. But you can always finetune its chosen settings according to your own preference. For instance, I personally do not enjoy 'motion blur' and so it is the first setting to get lowered in exchange for a higher fps. And I also do not need higher AA and this is also one of the first to get lowered.

Except for the fact that i have no SLI setup that's about exactly the same i wanted to write as a reply.
