Forums - Gaming Discussion - Nvidia Geforce Experience - PC gaming optimization software

Here is a very cool technology that Nvidia is currently testing - http://www.geforce.com/drivers/geforce-experience

Esentially it's software that detects your PC hardware and optimizes the game automatically for the best performance and visual settings. Check out the video on that site for more details.

Could this type of software be implemented for next gen consoles to allow for different hardware tiers? Think of the Arcade, Pro and Elite SKU's that Xbox 360 used to have and imagine they all had different hardware specs. Different GPU's amounts of RAM, HDD and obviously much different price points... Software like this could be used to optimize the game settings according to each console version and keep the hardcore, casual and everyone in between happy and gaming.

Thoughts?

They were showing the demo of this when they launched 690. It showed quite a bit of an improvement in Skyrim with some card they were using. I would welcome this but i am not sure if my card (9800 GTX+) would be supported.

Isn't this a bit old ? I remeber watching the presentation of this a few months back.

I think its cool though and should come in handy :)

Is it the same as the auto detect configuration that you can find in some game ?

The first that I remember that experienced this was Crysis I.

Technically i don't think it matters what hardware you have...its just optimisation software. Aparently they have a supercomputer somewhere taking in data from all over and just putting together the best configuration for different games for different setups. So support is not an issue.

It all depends on how much data they are actually capturing and how they eventually put it all together.

Here is how the game optimization is done. I think its a lot more comprehensive than the "auto-detect" found on some games.

The private 'invite only" beta only goes live today. Your card isn't supported unfortunately...

Ahh i see. I downloaded the client and it works well with updating drivers but it couldn't find any games on my system. I guess this is the reason why.
