Optimize Your Game Settings on your Shadow PC with Geforce Experience


It is important to note that not all Shadow Offers are compatible with the GeForce Experience optimization feature. It depends on your Shadow PC's GPU and CPU.

Optimize your Game Settings - What is this feature?

GeForce Experience takes the hassle out of PC gaming by configuring your game’s graphics settings for you.

Don’t know what texture filtering level to set in Overwatch? Not to worry. NVIDIA taps into the power of the NVIDIA cloud data center to test thousands of PC hardware configurations and find the best balance of performance and image quality. Then it automatically configures personalized graphics settings based on your PC’s GPU, CPU, and display.
