The effective replacement for NVIDIA Update utility.

NVIDIA GeForce Experience is a collection of enhancements for owners of NVIDIA display adapters and graphics cards.

The program includes a number of useful utility, mainly for games. Namely, you can use GeForce Experience to optimize games and share your achievements online.

The application also includes utilities which keep your NVIDIA graphics drives up-to-date as well as tools to improve image quality and frame rate in-game. GeForce Experience scans the system for games and provides optimal settings configurations.

The preferences are customizable and the application can be set to update graphics drivers automatically, optimize for certain game titles and access application log files.

Automatic optimization of games

One area where NVIDIA GeForce Experience shines is the feature which scans the system for games that it can support the optimization of. In the main window, you're presented with games that have been detected on the system and will display recommended settings. These improvements can involve special effects, resolution, shading, shadows, texture filtering and advanced PhyX options that can be applied to the game.

New optimized settings that GeForce Experience recommends can be previewed by way of a game screenshot displaying the before and after effects.


Unfortunately for owners of older graphics cards, GeForce Experience is really only useful for people with newer graphics cards and can't take advantage of the improvements that have been made in graphics processing over the years.

All in all, NVIDIA GeForce Experience is an excellent tool to have for owners of GeForce display adapters and especially useful for gamers.
