The next version of Nvidia's GeForce Experience utility is coming out of beta today. Version 3.0 of the app, which we examined during its beta-testing phase, offers a revamped user interface, faster start-up times, and a freshened-up sharing interface compared to its predecessor. As we discovered during its beta phase, however, this version of GeForce Experience is also the first to require a user account to work, so get your Nvidia, Facebook, or Google account credentials ready if you want to take advantage of this update.
I've been using the beta version of GeForce Experience 3.0 for quite some time now, and aside from some occasional hitches related to the Share overlay that seem to be fixed in the final version, my original verdict of the redesign still applies. I think it's fast, polished, and easy to use. I'm still unhappy about creating Yet Another User Account in order to use this utility, but at least it doesn't seem like Nvidia has begun restricting downloads of its Game Ready drivers to GeForce Experience users yet as some have expected. If you're OK with signing up or signing in, GeForce Experience 3.0 is a perfectly solid companion to Nvidia hardware, and I think it's a no-brainer to go ahead and upgrade.
