How NVIDIA’s Latest Innovation Can Automatically Tune Up Your Favorite Games

by Brian Caulfield

Over the years, our engineers have invented the GPU and the programmable shader. We’ve worked with hundreds of top game developers to help them exploit everything our cutting-edge GPUs have to offer.

Now, it’s time to help you optimize your PC so you get the most out of your favorite games.

We’ve just released the open beta of GeForce Experience (GFE). It’s free, and connects your PC to NVIDIA’s servers so we can tailor your game settings to get the most out of your CPU, GPU and monitor.

The open beta follows on the closed beta released in December. That effort has already reached more than 40,000 gamers.

With our open beta, we’re expanding support to more than 40 games, including Far Cry 3, Mechwarrior Online, and Hawken. We’re including support for more Core 2 Duo and Core 2 Quad CPUs in most games. And we’re adding optimal playable settings for 2560 by 1440 displays; and more.

The goal is to turn the process of ensuring you get a great PC gaming experience into a one-click affair. Pick your game, click ‘optimize’ and you’re good to go. You can, of course, continue to tweak your configurations. But you don’t have to if you don’t want to.

GeForce Experience (GFE)
Figuring out how to make a game look its best can be a daunting task.

With this open beta, we’re eager to get your feedback to help us ensure we’re delivering a great experience.

It’s not a simple task. While PCs can offer gamers more control – and more power – than a gaming console, they also offer a bewildering array of choices. PCs can be built using tens of thousands of different combinations of GPU, CPU, and operating system, among other variables. As a result, a PC game can have as many as a million possible combinations of graphics settings.

Another pain point our open beta tackles: driver updates. GFE aims to keep your system up to date by notifying you and even installing the latest GPU drivers.

And why not. We’re the ones with thousands of engineers at our disposal.

We’ll leave it to you to beat Far Cry 3.
