New GeForce Gaming Features: ReShade, Low Latency, and Image Sharpening
[Julian Huguet]: What’s up, GeForce fans? Today we’re releasing a new Game Ready Driver, which means your GeForce PC is about to get even better. We’re adding a host of new features to your favorite games. Let’s take a deeper look. GeForce experience has been making it really easy for you to customize the look of your games with Freestyle game filters and to capture beautiful photographs with Ansel photo mode. But there’s also a vibrant community of modders who create custom filters using ReShade. Now with this update, you can import hundreds of ReShade filters for your favorite Freestyle and Ansel games. Here’s how you do it. Simply download the official ReShade Filters, there’s a link in the description below. Then unzip them into the folder titled Program FilesNVIDIA CorporationAnsel. You can create it yourself if you don’t have this folder. Now in a supported game, hit Alt F3 to bring up Freestyle, and you should be able to see the new ReShade filters. Check out this new ReShade filter ‘Retro_Neon.’ I’m partial to this blue hue, but you can change it to neon green, or red, or whatever you like. Another feature that’s included in this Game Ready Driver is Image Sharpening, which enhances the details of the scene for cleaner visuals. Now this feature is available through the NVIDIA control panel with improved performance and is available for all DirectX Games. To access Image Sharpening, go to your NVIDIA control panel, select ‘Manage 3D settings,’ and turn on Image Sharpening. You can use the sliders there to tune the sharpness to your preference, and you can customize it for each application. For a performance boost, you can select the GPU Upscaling checkbox to render at a lower resolution and use the GPU to upscale to the native resolution of your display. To activate this in your game, select the resolution in your game settings, and the GPU will automatically take care of the upscale. This update also adds another cool feature in the control panel that’s now out of beta. NVIDIA Ultra Low Latency mode. NULL gives you better response time by reducing your system latency, making the game feel more in sync with your movements. But, what if I also don’t want my game to tear? You may have noticed the VSYNC option in your game settings. When you turn it on, it eliminates tearing but adds latency. With NULL, gamers don’t have to make that hard choice anymore when paired with a G-SYNC or G-SYNC-compatible display. Now you can enjoy a smooth, no-tear gaming experience with lower system latency thanks to G-SYNC and NULL. To enable this feature, turn on NULL in the NVIDIA control panel by going to Manage 3D Settings, scroll down to the Low Latency Mode, and set the mode to Ultra. Next, enable G-SYNC under ‘Set up G-SYNC’ in the control panel. And then enable VSYNC in ‘Manage 3D Settings’ or turn on VSYNC in your game settings. Well that’s it for this Game Ready Driver, but we’re always rolling out more to make sure you get the best day-one experience, while providing amazing new features and improved performance.
