New drivers are out.

344.48 WHQL

The big thing in this release is something called Dynamic Super Resolution which is a feature for 500, 600 and 700 series cards. What it basically does it is runs games at higher resolutions, up to 4K is supported currently, and then downsamples them to 1080p to improve image quality. It is all done automatically, but you can also fiddle with the settings game by game in the GeForce Experience app. There you can select different DSR scaling factors and adjust the smoothness of the DSR filter, which sharpens or softens the in-game picture.

You won't regret it. I moved from ati/amd some years back and no problems playing ever since.

Well, so far so good. Getting a stable 60fps with everything whacked on the highest settings on Shadow of Morder. Also, ARMA 3 is running at 50fps with everything all the way up. Me likey.

September's GeForce Experience update will allow users to stream games to another PC for co-op with one copy of the game...




A GTX 650 or upward will be required to stream from the main PC and it's also only compatible via a Chrome plug-in.

Supported games list is here...

Nvidia to restrict driver updates to GeForce Experience users...

http://www.pcworld.com/article/2993272/ ... ation.html

Come December Nvidia graphics card users will need to sign up to and install the company’s GeForce Experience software to update their graphics drivers.

While GeForce experience has been an easy way to install driver updates for some time, users currently are also free to obtain drivers from Nvidia’s website or via Windows update. The latter two options will be removed before the end of the year, however.

Those who don’t want to register with and install Nvidia’s software will be restricted to quarterly driver updates – which is far from ideal, considering that nearly every major game launch is accompanied by a new dedicated driver.

Not happy about that as whenever I use the Geforce Experience the install crashes my PC and I have to do a complete fresh driver install.

Yeah I thought it a bit of an odd decision even though I use the Jimi Hendrix Experience myself.

You'll still get updates without the software it would seem albeit on a quarterly basis. Very odd. :?

Ooo this place is new.

Right then you lot. Had my 960 a few days now and I've been wondering concerning the Geforce experience is it possible to remove games from the list? It's bugging me that SMITE is sat there and I don't even have the game nor wish to have the game installed on my machine.

Smite? The only games I have on the list are the games I have installed. When I uninstall them they disappear.

I don't think it detects all games. Just a select few.

Either way if I was Prey I'd refresh the list and hope that sorts it...

If not its relatively easy to ignore.
