What Is The NVIDIA GeForce Experience 3.0

Those of us who are new to PC gaming may have a little bit of difficulty when it comes down to deciding what settings to set our games to. NVIDIA has introduced a program that will help us with just that and the addition of a few other features: the GeForce Experience. With the GeForce Experience 3.0 we will now be able to utilize the potential of our gaming rigs by letting the software automatically change our game settings on more than 300 game titles in accordance to the exact CPU, GPU, and display monitor our system is using. This way we will be given the perfect balance between the quality of graphics and performance. In addition to the feature that allows GeForce Experience to deliver a better gaming experience, the players will be able to download game ready drivers that are developed to fit new releases as well as the ability to share clips, screenshots, and streams of our games with our friends.

NVIDIA GeForce Experience

Right now there are over 75 million gamers that have signed up for the GeForce Experience a number that is nearly double the 2014 installation base that had just 35 million users. NVIDIA has been able to grow the user base of GeForce Experience by giving away a great deal of hardware and software. For example since July of this year, NVIDIA has given away MSI VR-Ready Notebooks, HTC Vive Systems, GeForce GTX 1080s, SHIELD Android TVs in promotions. NVIDIA has also been giving away thousands of dollars in game codes to random gamers registered with GeForce Experience 3.1.0 (the latest build), so you can even get free games for using the software. Over $320,000 worth of game codes have been given away to GeForce Experience 3.0 users in the past 4 months alone!

Current and past game code promotions from this year include:

  • October 28th 2016 – $20,000 worth of ABZÛ Codes
  • October 20th, 2016 – $50,000 worth of Obduction Codes
  • October 13th, 2016 – $50,000 worth of Shadow Warrior 2 Codes
  • October 7th, 2016 – $200,000 worth of Dead by Daylight Codes
  • August 4th, 2016 – LawBreakers Alpha Codes

One thing to keep in mind at this point is that the GeForce Experience will only work with NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards. In order to use all the features of the GeForce Experience the user must have a GeForce GTX 650 graphics card or better. Here at Legit Reviews we actually switched out one of our personal gaming setups from an older AMD Radeon R9 280 with the newer NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Founder’s Edition to be able to run the software.

    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.
