By default, we recommend a Screen Resolution, Fullscreen experience, one that gives you at least 40 frames per second during a game’s most demanding moments. With GeForce Experience 1.8, if you prefer 60 frames per second drag the adjustable slider to the left; if you’re happy with 30 frames per second drag it to the right to increase image quality. Changes to the Optimal recommendations are instantly reflected in the user interface, showing you the combination of settings you’ll use in-game, and if you prefer to play in a window, the option can be quickly selected via the dropdown.
To determine system configurations for Optimal Playable Settings we read the make and model of your CPU and GPU. To read your clock speeds would require an invasive system scan that we do not perform (the GeForce Experience FAQ details our data collection policy), meaning we’re unable to account for overclocking, which can make a system considerably faster. With the introduction of Adjustable Optimal Settings, you can now manually adjust recommendations to account for overclocks, by dragging the slider to the right to increase image quality.
