NVIDIA starts closed beta for GeForce Experience

In April, NVIDIA first announced its plans for GeForce Experience, which it claimed would help hardcore PC gamers get the best hardware and software settings when they play a particular game on their rig. Today, NVIDIA announced that it has begun closed beta testing on this new service.

Part of this service involves a cloud-based server which NVIDIA says stores information on thousands of different hardware settings for PC games. The company said:

The user simply installs GeForce Experience on their system and the app will automatically download the best settings from the server based on the user’s specific hardware configuration. These settings can be applied per game or across all games as desired.

The system also includes automatic driver downloads to keep a PC updated with the latest software. At the moment, 24 games are supported with GeForce Experience, including recent games like Assassin's Creed III and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, but more games will be added in the coming weeks. You can see an example of how the software works in the video above.

NVIDIA says that it will launch an open beta of GeForce Experience in the near future. There no word on if the company will charge money for the service comes when it comes out of beta.

Well the only thing I could see that would be of any use would be notification of new drivers. Although I only use AMD GPU's so I can't say on the Nvidia side but I have found the newest drivers always better on AMD. I have never had to downgrade my AMD drivers. I have a few friends that use Nvidia that have said they have to keep using an older driver just to play this or that game not so with AMD.

Your friends are confusing Nvidia beta drivers with Nvidia release drivers. If they stick with the released versions, they won't need to use older drivers with their games. It's only the betas that can get dicey.

The reason you haven't run into this is that AMD doesn't release beta drivers since most AMD users are relative computer novices.

Professionals use Nvidia exclusively and can handle the occasional quirks inevitable in beta testing.

Except you're wrong

AMD does release beta drivers, and their users are far from novices

And nvidia frequently releases new official drivers with and for specific game releases to make it work properly in that game.

first thought i had seeing this is about the picture in the story..
I hope they are doing a real comparison in the video (didn't watch it)
Because it bugs the absolute hell out of me when people post comparison pics
of in game footage for comparison and they don't use the EXACT same location
for the pic in the before / after etc
You know the point is always to see the subtle differences and yes there will be differences unless you screen grab the same EXACT spot ! so it makes most of the these pics people post useless !

and yeah wtf like the guy said support older cpu's !
I have a quad amd x4 on a shelf but prefer my C2D because i like my mobo for the Intel.
And my ooh so ancient super dooper old pc is MORE than capable playing any game i want lol
BUT i won't be using some auto crap for my games though.. its bad enough they have this sort of crap integrated into the drivers.. doesn't seem like to much of a difference to me between this beta and the default profiles included with geforce drivers that get loaded behind the scenes, you guys know the one that people use to complain about when benchmarking.. they would accuse ATI or Nvidia of being sneaky and optimizing their drivers for games skewing benchmarks results.. i remember when that was a big deal lol
Now its added to their changelog on driver updates lol

It's not even a closed beta, just go to the GeForce Experience Page linked at the bottom of their article and you can download the exe file. I found this after registering and getting a link to the exact same page, so it's the same exe used in the alleged beta.

This is one of the most pointless things I have ever seen, unless you're just a complete noob that knows nothing about computers, this program is useless.. And why only support only i3/i5/i7 or AMD Phenom II/Athlon II/Phenom X4. What about Core 2 Quad users? There is no logical reason to exclude slightly older processors.

I do NOT want auto matic updates!!! Why do they and others insist on pushing this when it should be a option OFF by default!?!?!

I like how the "optimized" settings lower my settings to crapola settings in almost all the games it detects on my system. I'd rather not set Planetside 2 to low and medium on things thanks Nvidia. Yeah I know, I won't get 79089080898 fps then, but that's my choice damn it!
