Would be nice if there an article later to compare Shadow Play and FRAPS video capturing and to see pro and con for both softwares. So far the con might be the feature only available for geforce user :p  . will AMD going to release something similar to radeon user? If i'm not mistaken the 7k radeons also have something similar to nvidia NVENC inside it's hardware

Okay, that's cool. The ability to not have to sift through the boring stuff and only starting recording (before) the interesting stuff happens...

And not to Titan?!? Wha?!? I'm sad... What about my 690... I use FRAPS all the time. Being able to dump it for something better wouldn't make me sad at all. Even if it was just a live recording and not the capture the past thing this mentioned... I'll still take it. But the 7 series wasn't something I was looking at to be honest. I was considering a Titan but... I'm a rare, weird extremist like that...

I use Msi Afterburner with my 7950 it uses 3 different types of compression you can also set the resolution and frame rate

AFAIK Shadow Play should be able to work with any Kepler based gpu

isn't that MSI AB approach is a bit similar to FRAPS?

This would actually provide a nice backup if not live streaming. As for FRAPS I'd say it's seeing less and less use these days with the convenience and ease of streaming with OBS or Xsplit.

Twitch has made editing videos fairly painless with simple slider adjustments for highlighting and effectively one click uploads of highlights to YouTube. (it's really 3 clicks, but takes less than 5 seconds)

Nvidia is starting to build themselves a nice little software utility ecosystem, while AMD is still stuck on trying to fix microstutter lol.

I seriously hope AMD does fix the microstutter issue. I like to have options.

Right now they aren't even on my radar. That sucks from a consumer standpoint.

I haven't check the driver feedback thread over nvidia forum yet what exactly common problem people are having with the drivers? For me the driver working just fine with my GTX660 SLI

i think its mainly crashes, these disappear as soon as you use NVidia inspector to force a stable clock rate, rather than boost clock bs that causes crashes in quite a few games for me.

GPUs graphic power is growing so strong compared to games that they even add this stuff to sell their products...

I have been using the driver since it came out so far works fine with me. Only have driver crash (stop responding) this week which is the first since first i insralled the driver on my machine. Maybe it did not affecting my machine that much

I've been extremely happy with the launch of Nvidia Geforce Experience Software. Auto driver updates, Auto game profile optimize settings and now shadow play! Nvidia has always been strong in the software department and this is why I stand by them. Software support is fantastic!

I think the last AMD I used was a HD5770 in my wife's computer, Now a 650ti boost. The last AMD i used in my gaming rig was 9800XT 256MB

So it's like MSI's Kombustor.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Kombustor is primarily a benchmarking tool?

Yup. Kombustor is msi version of Furmak. Ithink he meant the video recording feature that comes with msi after burner. But as i know it Shadow Play will work differently from the video capture that built into msi AB. I thinkit works more like FRAPS

From what I understand, ShadowPlay is supposed to use part of the GPUs processing power for the video encoding? Can anyone confirm this? Is this the same as FRAPS or does FRAPS utilize CPU power for encoding?

yes it will use specific nvidia hardware that exist in kepler called NVenc. also from my personal experience recording FRAPS using my dual E7500 the performance hit was larger than 50%. when moving to my 2500K setup recording using FRAPS did not affect the performance at all.

Yeah sorry, i meant the After Burner recording thingy. It works a bit differently than FRAPS and more like Shadow Play, in the sense that it encodes the raw frames, FRAPS doesn't.

I think i'm being overtly simplistic here, so take this as a very coarse explanation, please :)
