NVIDIA GeForce Experience is a powerful application that comes in handy to video gamers who have a GeForce graphics card installed on their system.
It applies optimal settings to all video games, based on the recommendations provided by NVIDIA, in order to enhance the player's experience. The tool also downloads the latest drivers for the graphics card.
The interface is clean and intuitive, with the primary panel divided into three parts, dedicated to games, drivers and preferences.
NVIDIA GeForce Experience automatically scans the computer for video games and displays the current and recommended settings when it comes to the character, effects and environment quality, resolution, shadows, texture filtering, full screen mode, advanced PhysX, and many others. Plus, you can preview optimal settings applied to game screenshots, as well as launch the video games straight from the main application window.
Another important feature of the program automatically checks for the latest GeForce drivers and offers to install them without leaving the desktop. Plus, it shows release highlights.
From the Preferences area you can ask NVIDIA GeForce Experience to apply optimal settings by default, include beta updates in the driver checkups, disable update notifications, choose the video game installed locations, switch to a different UI language, as well as log all activity to file.
The utility offers support for Windows XP SP3, but only when it comes to the driver update module. It minimizes to the system tray and uses low CPU and RAM, so it doesn't interfere with normal activity. We have not come across any issues in our tests.
The bottom line is that NVIDIA GeForce Experience offers an excellent solution for playing video games at optimum performance, and it should be added to any power user's utility belt.
