Wave goodbye to GeForce Experience, Say hello to NVIDIA App

Wave goodbye to GeForce Experience, the new Nvidia App is set to replace it once it's out of beta. The new desktop application for GeForce graphics cards features an updated look and feel, new features, and no login requirement, and it's expected to eventually consume the Nvidia Control Panel, too.

The Nvidia App launched in beta February 22, and will replace GeForce Experience. Here's what's new:

  • Overhauled UI
  • No login requirement
  • New in-game overlay
  • Shadowplay 120fps support
  • Per-game profile settings from the Nvidia Control Panel
  • RTX HDR support
  • RTX Dynamic Vibrance filter

New NVIDIA app, the essential companion for gamers and creators with NVIDIA GPUs in their PCs and laptops. The NVIDIA app is a first step in our journey to modernize and unify the NVIDIA Control Panel, GeForce Experience, and RTX Experience apps.

Whether you're a gaming enthusiast or a content creator, the NVIDIA app simplifies the process of keeping your PC updated with the latest NVIDIA drivers, and enables quick discovery and installation of NVIDIA applications like GeForce NOW, NVIDIA Broadcast and NVIDIA Omniverse.

Featuring a unified GPU control center, NVIDIA app allows fine-tuning of game and driver settings from a single place, while introducing a redesigned in-game overlay for convenient access to powerful gameplay recording tools, performance monitoring overlays, and game enhancing filters, including innovative new AI-powered filters for GeForce RTX users.

In short here are some of the improvements that NVIDIA App brings to the table include:

  • Simplifying the process of keeping PCs updated with the latest NVIDIA drivers, and enables quick discovery and installation of NVIDIA applications like its cloud-gaming service GeForce NOW, NVIDIA Broadcast and NVIDIA Omniverse.
  • As a unified GPU control centre, the app allows fine-tuning of game and driver settings from a single place, while introducing a redesigned in-game overlay for convenient access to powerful gameplay recording tools and performance monitoring overlays.
  • For content creators, NVIDIA App will also feature new AI-powered Freestyle Filters. RTX HDR adds HDR (High Dynamic Range) to SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) games, while RTX Dynamic Vibrance improves upon the NVIDIA Control Panel Digital Vibrance feature, further improving visual clarity in games.

Now let’s dive into details for the new and improved features.

The NVIDIA app integrates GeForce Experience's Optimal Game Settings and NVIDIA Control Panel's 3D Settings into a unified interface. This becomes a centralized place to review or modify optimizations while adjusting driver settings. You can customize it on a per-applications basis, or use a global profile across all games and applications.

When it comes to your favorite games or applications, Game Ready Drivers and Studio Drivers ensure the ultimate experience for gamers and creators. A popular request from GeForce Experience users is for a quicker, more straightforward way to understand what's included in the latest driver updates.

The In-Game Overlay has undergone a comprehensive redesign. As before, use the convenient "Alt+Z" hotkey to swiftly access Shadowplay recording tools, Freestyle Game Filters, NVIDIA Highlights, photo mode, and performance monitoring tools.

In the NVIDIA app the user interface has been improved, enabling quick access to features while playing your favorite game or using an application. And your captured content is now readily available in the gallery through user-friendly thumbnails.

The performance monitoring with a new statistics overlayhave also been enhanced performance monitoring with a new statistics overlay. Gamers can now customize how the performance overlay is displayed during their gaming session with options to minimize the footprint of the HUD.

Additionally, gamers can now customize which performance metrics they would like to see during their gaming session. Simply hit Alt + R to toggle performance monitoring statistics.

NVIDIA app also introduces Shadowplay 120 FPS video capture which enables a new level of smoothness in recorded content.

NVIDIA Freestyle empowers you to personalize the visual aesthetics of your favorite games through real-time post-processing filters. This feature boasts compatibility with a vast library of more than 1,200 games, and now NVIDIA app offers AI-powered filters, accelerated by Tensor Cores on GeForce RTX GPUs.

RTX Dynamic Vibrance is an AI-powered Freestyle filter that improves upon the beloved Digital Vibrance feature in the NVIDIA Control Panel. RTX Dynamic Vibrance enhances visual clarity on a per app basis, providing players with a flexible and convenient way to tune their visual settings for each game. Colors pop more on screen, with perfect balance to minimize color crushing, preserving image quality and immersion.

RTX HDR, a new AI-powered Freestyle filter seamlessly brings the vibrant world of High Dynamic Range (HDR) to games that were not originally equipped with HDR support. Remarkably, only 10 of the top 50 most-played GeForce games offer HDR support and there are thousands of games that only support SDR. However, with the RTX HDR filter, you can now take advantage of your HDR-compatible monitor for a broad spectrum of games running on DX12, DX11, DX9, and Vulkan platforms.

NVIDIA will be integrating the remaining features from the NVIDIA Control Panel, which will encompass Display and Video settings. Additionally, several attributes from GeForce Experience and RTX Experience, such as GPU overclocking and driver roll-back will be added to the app.

Not all features will be making the transition, though. The primary goal with the NVIDIA app is to enhance the user experience, boost client performance, and pioneer RTX innovations. To achieve this, we've made the decision to discontinue a few features that were underutilized, especially where good alternatives exist.

This discontinuation encompasses Broadcast to Twitch and YouTube, Share Images and Video to Facebook and YouTube, and Photo Mode 360 & Stereo captures.
