If you’ve been a part of NVIDIA’s ecosystem for any length of time, you’re likely familiar with their GeForce Experience app’s ability to automatically adjust game settings to the optimal level for your hardware. Sometimes it gets it wrong, and making tweaks yourself remains optimal, but still, it’s a nice feature for NVIDIA to offer. So it’s equally nice that NVIDIA is now extending this auto-adjusting technology to creative apps via its Studio Driver.
As of launch, this creativity app optimization feature supports 34 programs, with more to be supported in the future.
Here’s a screenshot of the feature in action:
You can see the Studio Driver’s optimization efforts at work toward the bottom of the image, wherein settings have been automatically configured to process via GPU for maximum performance.
Another item worth noting about the Studio Driver update is that it’s built to integrate with the latest NVIDIA software and hardware natively, such as the company’s freshly announced Ampere-based GPUs that made their debut at GTC 2021.
You can learn more about NVIDIA Studio’s specific applications, as well as the full scoop on GTC 2021, over at NVIDIA’s blog. It was an event chock-full of content, including the announcement of NVIDIA’s first datacenter CPU.
If you want to make the best possible use of NVIDIA’s Studio Driver, you’ll likely need a strong graphics card such as the best RTX 3070 GPUs, since a lot of creative programs benefit from drawing on GPU power. Or, you could aim a little lower and go with something like the RTX 3060 Ti… if you can find one in stock, that is.
