NVIDIA GeForce Experience 3.0 Overview – How To Optimize, Record and Stream Your Games

Game Optimization and Game Ready Drivers

There are times wherein a lot of us (including myself) want to push our computers to deliver the best experience possible but are limited by our hardware. We can easily change our settings in Overwatch to Ultra but can be faced with lag, overheating, and significant drops in frame rate. With the GeForce Experience our computer’s graphics card, CPU, and monitor will be picked up by the program and the game optimization will be utilized. Therefore, our settings on select games will be determined by our rig and we no longer have to worry about having our settings too high at the cost of performance.

In addition to game optimization the GeForce Experience also provides users with Game Ready Drivers. Along with newly released titles Game Ready Drivers will be available. These are developed when NVIDIA discovers solutions for an issue that can be solved by the driver. Players are notified when a new Game Ready Driver is ready for a download that can be executed by a single click.

It’s a nice addition to be able to optimize performance with the click of a button as well as having access to game ready drivers. On the following pages we will walk you through basic use of the GeForce Experience including the Instant Replay, Record, and Broadcast features which greatly highlight what the app delivers.

Let’s take a look at how to share your gameplay with GeForce Experience 3.0.

    I want to stream to Twitch and to YouTube at the same time. Can’t seem to get the software to do it… suggestions aside from switching to OBS?

    You failed to tell how to disable annoying keyboard shortcuts! Because this UX flaw I don’t use this crappy bloatware.

    • Landy

      I just struck the same annoying issue with GeForce ‘stealing’ my keyboard shortcuts I use in other programs. The solution is to open GeForce experience and go to settings. There is a switch in there to turn off “Share”. Your keyboard shortcuts in other programs will then work as intended again.

    Did I miss something, or did you fail to mention the increased telemetry that NVidia collects with GE 3?

    • Nathan Kirsch

      From the GFE FAQ: ” The application collects data needed to recommend the correct driver update and optimal settings, including hardware configuration, operating system, language, installed games, game settings, game usage, game performance, and current driver version. If a user is signed into an NVIDIA account, the data is identifiable. All data collected is protected by NVIDIA’s privacy policy.”

        People on the Internet being concerned about their privacy is rather humorous. 😉

        • Exactly! i have been saying it for years. Privacy is gone and people need to make sure they don’t do or say anything they don’t want other people to see….so obey the laws and be nice 😉

          And the fact that people feel like they are soooooo special that they are going to be targeted when they are online. I’m sure…. I guess if you are doing some shifty shite that could be deemed illegal/illicit then yeah you have something to worry about.
