The NVIDIA App Is Finally Replacing GeForce Experience And NVIDIA Control Panel Altogether

The NVIDIA App Is Finally Replacing GeForce Experience And NVIDIA Control Panel Altogether

While NVIDIA GPUs are very popular these days, one thing it fell short of is the software, though not for the lack of features, at least. The interface is arguably very dated if not straight-up geriatric – the NVIDIA Control Panel today still has the interface that can be traced back to Windows XP days! (I’m here to remind you that Windows XP is 23 years old. Feeling old yet?)

Today, NVIDIA is launching its replacement for both the GeForce Experience and NVIDIA Control Panel, aptly named the NVIDIA App. “The NVIDIA app beta is a first step in our journey to modernize and unify the NVIDIA Control Panel, GeForce Experience, and RTX Experience apps,” the company wrote in a blog post.

The new app will include features and controls from two of NVIDIA’s legacy tools, but they will continue to work for the foreseeable future as part of the transitional process. The new app allows you to update drivers, and access various tools such as GeForce NOW, NVIDIA Broadcast, NVIDIA Omniverse, and more. However, the new app doesn’t include GPU tuning controls like AMD and Intel do, yet – though the company does say overclocking controls will be integrated into the app in the future.

Navigating through NVIDIA’s current software is often an adventure in itself if you’re not a skilled user, and more surprisingly – there hasn’t been a first-party solution for adjusting GPU clock speeds and fan profiles, which probably contributed to the popularity of MSI Afterburner for a long while. Annoyingly, NVIDIA also required users to sign in with an account to make any changes in the GeForce Experience app. This is no longer the case with the new app.

On the contrary, both Team Red and Team Blue have made their own software – AMD Software and Intel Arc Control, respectively – plenty easy for novice users to navigate, plus no signups required. Hence, the introduction of the NVIDIA app will hopefully make life easier for Team Green owners out there.

If you’re willing to try things out, you can click here and download the NVIDIA App. Note that installing the new app will directly replace GeForce Experience, while NVIDIA Control Panel will remain in the system.
