NVIDIA today released GeForce Experience 1.8, which includes adjustiable Optimal Playable Settings and a number of ShadowPlay updates. The introduction of Adjustable Optimal Settings dramatically improves the functionality of GeForce Experience as end users can now raise or lower the eye candy. This should help overclockers raise the image quality or help 4K gamers lower the settings as their gaming systems are going to be rather unique. The NVIDIA GeForce Experience reads the model of your CPU and GPU, but does not take clock speeds into consideration as that would require an invasive system scan. This new setting allows gamers to make the adjustment and keep some privacy.


When it comes to NVIDIA Shadowplay it appears that NVIDIA has added support for multi-source audio recording, so you can now record game audio and VOIP simultaneously. They have also changed the way recoding is handled for Windows 7 users. Windows 7 users can now save up to 20 minutes of Shadow Mode footage, just like Windows 8 users, and Windows 7 Manual Mode is no longer restricted to a single 3.8GB file – footage is now recorded continually across multiple files until the moment you run out of HDD or SSD space. Other changes of note include the ability to capture footage at native resolution and aspect ratios up to 1920x1080 (beyond 1920x1080 the aspect ratio is preserved), and the reduction of stuttering during playback of captured video. These are all great changes and GeForce Experience 1.8 looks like it brings some big changes. The one missing feature that we can't wait to see incorporated is the ability to direct stream to Twitch. NVIDIA says that a future update will bring the ability to stream directly to Twitch.tv
