Nvidia GeForce Now cloud gaming service reaches beta status on PC

Nvidia released the Nvidia GeForce Game Reader 390.65 WHQL driver for GeForce graphics cards on January 8th, 2018. Also, this driver provides the optimal gaming experience for Fortnite, including support for ShadowPlay Highlights in Battle Royale mode.

While GeForce NOW lets gamers stream games on underpowered PCs, the app still has some minimum system requirements. In case you weren't aware of, the NVIDIA Freestyle lets you apply post-processing filters to your games. To access these settings, use the in-game GeForce Experience overlay.

Over recent times our phones and Windows 10 have added night modes which reduces blue color to reduce eye strain as you game well into the night and Nvidia are also including night mode, which they believe will help you sleep better after a night of gaming.

Freestyle's more serious uses include a colorblind mode that makes it easier for colorblind gamers to differentiate between colors.

We've integrated Freestyle at the driver level for seamless compatibility with games. Well, Nvidia is making a service called GeForce NOW that will let gamers play even the most graphically demanding games on a toaster, and the service is currently in open beta for everyone in the U.S. and Europe. It adds Game Ready support for Fortnite and updates SLI profiles for Dirt4, Total War: Warhammer II and X-Morph: Defense. Additionally, we're announcing support for two new Highlights titles, including Crossout and Elex. While numerous available filters and settings may help to add some flair to gameplay, there's also a colorblind mode created to help those with colorblindness better distinguish colors, and a night mode that cuts down on blue light to facilitate improved sleep.

With Ansel, you can compose shots from virtually any camera position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high-fidelity formats and share your screenshots in 360 degrees via your smartphone, PC or VR headset. With a new beta feature called Freestyle, you can spice up your gameplay with 15 different filters.

It's important to mention that to get these updates, you'll have to update your Nvidia Drivers to at least version 390.0 and download the new GeForce Experience 3.12 application. The new features will be available in the company's GeForce Experience software on January 9th - just be sure to enable "Experimental Features" to see them.
