GeForce.com Launches Open Beta for GeForce Owners

Posted: 09 Nov 2010 10:00 AM PST

Since we started building GPUs over ten years ago, NVIDIA has had some of the most loyal and dedicated fans on the planet. Your passion for games is what has pushed us to create faster and better GPUs.

For a long time we've wanted to do something for you that makes your PC gaming experience better and that helps cultivate PC gaming at large. Today, we're pleased to unveil the first step of that effort--a new website called GeForce.com.

GeForce.com serves you in three simple ways:

Makes It Easy to Pick In-game Settings
PC games often have a lot of graphics settings, and picking the right one for your system can be difficult and time consuming. To make this easier, we've taken the latest games and hardware and profiled them to determine settings that maximize image quality while maintaining playable framerates. This takes the guesswork out of configuring your graphics card so you can get on with gaming. Try this out in the Optimize section. 

Connects GeForce Users with Great Content
GeForce GPUs support a host of great technologies such as DirectX 11, SLI, PhysX, and 3D Vision. One of the most common questions we hear is "Which games take advantage of them?" In the Game Browser section, not only can you learn about the latest games, but the technologies that power them, and how they make the game more immersive.

Creates a Community for Our Users
Ultimately, GeForce.com is about creating a community for GeForce users. As a first step, we've revamped the forums with much more relevant categories, improved software, and a fresh new look. Second, because this site is built for you, we're launching it as a beta and opening it up for feedback. You'll have the first say on what gets built and what content we'll focus on in the future.

Take a look at the site and let us know what you think! You can also join the forum thread to give us feedback on GeForce.com.


GeForce GTX 580 is Here

Once again, we've introduced the world's fastest DirectX 11 GPU. Launched today, the GeForce GTX 580 features 512 CUDA cores, significant improvements to the Fermi architecture and an ingenious new cooling design. It's the most powerful and power-efficient GPU the world's ever seen.

Gamers went nuts as Tom Petersen, director of technical marketing, gave a sneak preview this past weekend of the GTX 580 at one of the West Coast's biggest LAN events, where he showed the first PC gameplay of Call of Duty: Black Ops. You can watch some of that footage below:

For full product specs and to join the conversation about the GTX 580, head over to the GeForce forums where we'll be responding to your comments.
