Nvidia Adds New GPU Monitoring Overlay And Overclocking Features to GeForce Experience

In a new beta release of GeForce Experience, version 3.20.5, Nvidia has added a boatload of new features to the program, including one-click GPU overclocking and a fully-featured GPU monitoring tool, brining the company up to speed with some of the features enabled in AMD’s Adrenalin suite. The update also includes support for 8K 30FPS HDR shadowplay recordings via the NVENC encoder on RTX 30 series GPUs.

To see all the new GPU monitoring and overclocking tools, head over to your GeForce Experience application and enable “Experimental Features” to get the update for yourself. Once the update is installed, press “alt+Z” or whatever key you have bound to open the GeForce Experience overlay. Next, head over to the “Performance” tab, and voila, you can access all the new monitoring + OC features.

The Performance Monitoring area shows off a ton of information regarding GPU specifications, like power consumption, fan speed, temperature GPU, clock speeds, etc. You also get other info like CPU utilization and a frame rate counter that measures average FPS and 1% lows. Moving on to the GPU overclocking area, it’s really simple as it can be. Simply click on the slider next to “Enable Automatic Tuning,” and this will automatically overclock your GPU for the best performance.
