NVIDIA Rolls Out GeForce Experience and Shield Software Updates

/ 4 years ago


A new version of NVIDIA’s GeForce Experience software has been released, which brings improved gameplay recording via ShadowPlay as well as more user control over the game-specific optimal settings. The update comes in version 1.8 and is compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.

The key features included in the update include an Adjustable Optimal Playable Settings. Previously released versions of the GeForce Experience software made available a button which automatically applied optimal graphical settings for a given game. With the newly introduced feature however, users can now customize the tradeoff between performance and image quality by utilizing a slider and set it by preference. The feature supports resolutions up to 3840×2160 and display modes including full-screen, windowed, and borderless windowed.

Other improvements are seen in the video recording feature, adding multi-source audio recording and support for video capture at “native resolution and aspect ratios up to 1920×1080.” and also adds increased resolution limit from 720p to 1080p @ 60 FPS for Console Mode made available for 22 games like Batman: Arkham Origins, Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and others ( the complete list of supported games can be found here).
