NVIDIA Experience 3.27 released
NVIDIA’s most important program isn’t updated as often as you might expect. The last update was released in September last year, and it’s been the only one available ever since. Today NVIDIA released a new 3.27 version that finally adds RTX 40 Laptop GPU support.
The Ada Lovelace mobile series was launched in January, however, it took NVIDIA nearly 11 months for the RTX 40 Laptop GPU lineup to receive complete support from the GeForce Experience software. The ShadowPlay and Optimal Game Settings features now work with these mobile graphics cards. It should also support various Max-Q variants and Whisper Mode and Battery Boost 2.0.
NVIDIA is also confirming that as many as 50 new games were added to the optimization list:
A Plague Tale: Requiem, Against the Storm, Broken Pieces, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, Call of the Wild: The Angler, Construction Simulator, Coral Island, Cross Fire HD RT DLC, Dakar Desert Rally, Destroy All Humans! 2 – Reprobed, Diablo Immortal, Disney Dreamlight Valley, Evil West, F1 Manager 2022, Farthest Frontier, FIFA 23, Football Manager 2023, Gotham Knight, Inside the Backrooms, Isonzo, Lego Brawls, Marauders, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Metal: Hellsinger, MultiVersus, NBA 2K23, Need For Speed Unbound, Overwatch 2, PC Building Simulator 2, Rumbleverse, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Saints Row, Scathe, Shatterline, Sonic Frontiers, Steelrising, The Callisto Protocol, The Chant, Torchlight: Infinite, Tower of Fantasy, TRAHA Global, Two Point Campus, UNCHARTED: Legacy of Thieves Collection, Undecember, Victoria 3, Warhammer 40k: Darktide, Way of the Hunter, WRC Generations – The FIA WRC Official Game
Nonetheless, gamers will be pleased to learn that the 3.27 update also addresses one of the most irritating bugs for games who use HDR monitors. The recording from Shadowplay will no longer be overexposed, as they were before when using HDR mode.
NVIDIA appears to maintain a consistent schedule for releasing Game Ready drivers. However, there is room for improvement in the frequency of updates for their primary software. The Experience software, while optional for installation and possibly unpopular among gamers due to the mandatory online account, provides useful features such as screenshot and recording tools, along with convenient one-click game optimizations and driver update notifications.
Worth noting that despite the NVIDIA logo makeover last year, the Experience software is still rocking the old GeForce logo. Could this mean NVIDIA is preparing a major release soon? AMD’s Adrenalin Software or Intel’s Arc Control could be a good source of inspiration for NVIDIA. The integration of Control Panel and Experience software into a unified platform, preferably without the need for a login, seems long overdue.
