Nvidia Updates GeForce Experience to Support 4K Streaming and HD Broadcast
Nvidia is updating its GeForce Experience utility with a set of new features that will excite all those who are eagerly awaiting the standardization of 4K videogames.
The beta version of the GeForce Experience is being given a boost by allowing users to play games at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second and 5.1 surround sound on your TV through GameStream. 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.
Nvidia also recommends a fairly fast internet connection for uploading streams, suggesting a wired 100Mbps connection to go along with a powerful PC and modern TV.
GeForce Experience beta will give players the ability to broadcast their games live on YouTube. The streaming service platform is currently dominated by Twitch, but Google is looking to bring it to their otherwise more popular YouTube.
In addition to all this, Nvidia will also be giving first-access of Game Ready drivers to users who are committed to the GeForce Experience. Nvidia has been following its trend of releasing WHQL drivers for every latest game that comes up, and is expected to do the same as a host of new AAA titles are released in November.
However, in order to get first-access to Game Ready drivers, you’ll have to provide and verify an email address. Doing so will make you eligible for prizes and game codes, but you should also expect a lot of news feeds from Nvidia piling up in your inbox.
The final version of GeForce Experience is expected to be released sometime this holiday, with a host of new updates and features arriving sometime next year as well.
