In addition to this, the latest update also adds the ability to broadcast on YouTube Live’s new gaming channel at up to 1080p/60fps, the ability to broadcast to Twitch at 1080p/60fps instead of 720p/60fps.
While it is possible to configure games manually as well, the main appeal of GeForce Experience was that it did that automatically for you which was especially useful to gamers who did not want to be bothered going through the configuration manually or had troubles understanding the different customization options that many PC games ship with. This new update is the ideal example of how NVIDIA stands out from the competition and end users benefit from “all NVIDIA” entertainment setup.
First, the updates. Starting immediately, Nvidia’s GameStream technology will allow users to stream titles in 4K at 60 FPS, with support for 5.1 audio, if your hardware can handle that output level in the first place. It is yet to see what NVIDIA has hidden under its sleeves.
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 almost every major game launch is accompanied by a new dedicated driver. Of course, you’ll need a fairly powerful PC and a television that supports 4K resolutions, but if you have those two, chances are you’ll be going after the GeForce Experience immediately after reading this. “They don’t want to be inundated with these [Game Ready] drivers”, Pelletier is quoted as saying.
Finally, in their last announcement for the day, NVIDIA is sharing a bit of information on their plans for GeForce experience for the rest of the year, and this is a big one.
