Dark mode at last.
Does this give you the option to roll back to a previous driver version though?

Mr Moose

In addition, this driver supports the beta release of NVIDIA App, which unifies GeForce Experience and the NVIDIA Control Panel.
Does that mean they'll force you to agree to sharing data with them?
GeForce Experience requires data to configure your graphics card and application settings for the best gaming and content creation experience. We need to know your PC’s hardware, software for gaming, and network configuration, GeForce Experience feature usage, and geographical region.

We use this data to optimize your application settings, improve our products and services, and redeem codes for free games.

Oh Sugar Honey Ice Tea! AMD about to be in more trouble. I enjoy the Adrenaline software personally which has lead me to believe it would be one of the reasons I'd stick with AMD GPUs, but with this news... Su Bae might be in trouble for my next upgrade. (Price to Performance pending, of course) But this is amazing news for Nvidia GPU owners. Their control panel was long overdue an upgrade. Exciting times for the master race.


It's just GFE with a new coat of paint with some added features from Nvidia's Control Panel.

Can't change refresh rate/resolution, which is important to me sometimes when streaming my PC.

But still it's nice I guess.


Yea, maybe it is a gut reaction, but none of the improvements or changes maybe outside of driver update notifications seem relevant to me. Do people actually adjust in game settings via geforce now, or use the optimize stuff? It doesn't need to look pretty, just work. I use the 3d settings in control panel, but waiting a few seconds really doesn't ruin my day.

Installing now. Hopefully none of the core functionality of the OG control panel is broken.

EDIT: The regular control panel is still accessible with this installed. This app doesn't have all of its functionality, mostly the global and program specific 3D settings. It's more of a replacement for GeForce Experience.

Cores, shaders and BIOS oh my!
I installed the driver only (after cleaning with DDU) and the control panel is the same old one, guess this is just a GeForce Experience type extra app thing then. No thanks. Edit: oh it's in beta so I guess not actually included with the latest drivers then, I thought since they're today's they'd have it.

Nvidia's never replaced the classic OG control panel because it works

Meanwhile AMD will never get their slick looking but bug filled Adrenaline thing to ever work

I like things that work so I'll stick with the ugly ass Nvidia control panel
I finally watched the video during lunch break, Did Nvidia on screen controls always give a bunch of info like this new overlay? Any chance this might could replace Afterburner and Riva Tuner or Onscreen FPS Temps and such?


hide your water-based mammals
Nvidia finally steps up to the plate on their interface.

I'm very much looking forward to trying this as soon as I'm done on the toilet.
