Game Ready drivers for Nvidia graphics cards will soon require the use of the GeForce Experience software to download.
According to PC World, the switch will happen mid-December and will require you to have registered an email address with Nvidia.
“We kind of have two camps in terms of gamers,” Nvidia producer manager Sean Pelletier said during a recent conference call attended by PC World. “On one hand you have the gamer that’s just casually playing things here and there, using their system for daily use and gaming on the side. They don’t want to be inundated with these [Game Ready] drivers.”
“On the other side of the equation you have enthusiast gamers, who get excited about preloading a game, who want to play a game the day it comes out with all the bells and whistles,” Pelletier added. “That’s obviously the demographic we’re looking at for Game Ready drivers. We’re targeting GFE as a single-source destination for those gamers.”
GeForce Experience is an easy way for users to keep track of their GPU drivers and optimize in game settings. Nvidia may wish to encourage more users to download the software and be using this as a way to increase downloads.
