Nvidia's GeForce Experience: Cloud-based Settings Optimizer

Nvidia announced a huge game changer at GeForce LAN 2012 in Shanghai, China with the unveiling of the ultra-cool GTX GeForce 690. The company didn't stop there, as Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang also revealed the cloud-based project called the "GeForce Experience".

The service aims to simplify any hardship involved in configuring graphical settings for any of your favorite games; providing both the smoothest and visually-optimal experience possible. While some enthusiasts may not encounter many difficulties while configuring their games, Nvidia's research shows that “four out of five gamers play games at their default settings,” Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang pointed out. “Most gamers simply don't have the ability or the patience to configure each one of the games specifically for their PC.”

GeForce Experience can help average gamers get the most out of their games, and help enthusiasts tweak their settings to perfection. The service works by using the Cloud to connect your system to a GeForce supercomputer containing a wide-variety of hardware combinations, driver builds and video game releases.

“We literally use this data center, and this supercomputer, to methodically search the perfect setting for each GPU, CPU, Motherboard, operating system and driver configuration,” stated Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang.

In order to access this wealth of information, the end user installs a piece of software and simply clicks a button to optimize their PC. The optimization process is completely automatic; installing the latest drivers and configuring the best graphical settings for your system the next time you launch your game.

GeForce Experience is expected to begin beta on June 6th.

    Also, FPS heavily depends on the gamer. Saw it in action on Saturday. Not that good. Overclocked settings are going to mess with it as well. Not to mention the fact that some gamers are fine with 24 fps and others need 60. I don't see a good future for this unless nVidia is willing to put in a LOT of work.
