The Nvidia GeForce Experience Overlay is a powerful and useful tool for gamers who enjoy recording or streaming their gameplay. Nvidia GeForce Experience has all the required features under one interface, saving gamers from hunting down individual apps to save their in-game activities.
With the new Nvidia GeForce Experience 3.0 Overlay, the Share Overlay has been further optimized, providing more features. Gamers can now enjoy powerful screen recordings at 60 FPS and 4K resolutions for the upcoming high-end games.
Share your recordings and progress quickly from the Overlay by connecting your media accounts to the dashboard or simply uploading files directly to your Google account with the GeForce Experience Overlay.
1) Open the Nvidia GeForce Experience app if you have it installed. If not, you can download it from NVIDIA’s official website. Also, make sure your Nvidia GPU supports the app.
2) Then open the app and head over to settings by clicking on the cog-wheel icon and going to the ‘General’ tab.
3) Here, enable the ‘In-Game Overlay’ option.
4) You can also check the ‘Enable Experimental Features’ box to access more features. In that case, the GeForce Experience app might require an update.
5) While playing a game or on an idle desktop, press the Alt + Z key combination to bring up the Overlay interface while the app runs.
Here you can find all the functionalities of the Nvidia Overlay app and play around with the settings per your requirements.
One of the handy features of the app is that it can provide detailed data on the performance levels of your Nvidia graphics card. Readings like frame rate, GPU temperature, CPU usage, power, etc., can be customized from the settings. Everything about your GPU can be organized under one menu and monitored in real time.
To access the Performance Overlay, ensure you have enabled the experimental features of the app.
1) Open the interface by pressing the Alt + z key combo.
2) Go to settings by pressing the cog-wheel icon to open the settings tab.
