Nvidia game ready

If you’ve downloaded the latest GeForce Experience Beta from Nvidia you’ll have noticed some big changes. With a move to improve sharing of not only game footage and screen captures but also the game itself the new GameStream Co-Op functionality is now included.

The new version of the GeForce Experience Beta includes:

Video Recording:

  • GPU accelerated H.264 video encoding
  • DVR and manual mode video recording
  • Records up to 4K resolution at 60 FPS
  • Full desktop capture (desktop GPUs only)
  • Camera and mic support

Twitch Broadcasting:

  • GPU accelerated H.264 video encoding
  • Full desktop capture (desktop GPUs only)
  • Camera and mic support

GameStream Co-op:

  • Integrated voice chat
  • Mirror or co-op controller mode
  • Remote streaming

Much like the Playstation 4’s Share Play, Nvidia’s GameStream Co-Op gives you the ability either to allow others access to the game in a co-op environment or to give them complete control with you as a specator.

What is most noticeable about GameStream Co-Op are the requirements that is has:

Host PC:

  • GPU:
    • Desktop: GeForce GTX 650 or higher graphics card
    • Notebook: Non-Optimus Notebook with GeForce GTX 660M or higher graphics (Optimus support coming later)
  • GPU driver: 355.60 or higher
  • CPU: Intel i3-2100 3.1GHz
  • System Memory: 4 GB or higher
  • OS: Windows 7, 8, or 10
  • Router
    • Minimum: 802.11 a/g router
    • Recommended: 8.02.11n 5Ghz router or Ethernet
  • Recommended Network Bandwidth: 7 Mbps upstream
  • Games: DirectX 9 or higher games running in fullscreen exclusive mode

Guest PC:

  • GPU: No minimum requirement
  • CPU: Intel i3-2100 3.1GHz or higher
  • System Memory: 4 GB or higher
  • Software: Chrome version 44
  • OS: Windows 7, 8, or 10
  • Router
    • Minimum: 802.11 a/g router
    • Recommended: 8.02.11n 5Ghz router or Ethernet
  • Recommended Network Bandwidth: 7 Mbps downstream

While the hardware specs aren’t that high, the surprising requirement is the recommended network badwidth. At 7 Mpbs downstream and upstream, while this isn’t too high it is still at a questionable level and may rule some out. This is likely to be an issue, especially on a wireless network.

It should be noted that as this is still a beta, these requirements may change.
