GeForce Experience 1.8.1 Brings Live Twitch Streaming

GeForce Experience
GeForce Experience 1.8 was released earlier this month, which brought about major ShadowPlay updates that made the gameplay recording tool even better. It goes without saying that Nvidia’s ShadowPlay has a bright future ahead and will probably put all current softwares that incorporate the same features in its ‘shadow’.

Today the graphics card manufacturer released GeForce Experience 1.8.1, which brings live Twitch Streaming to Shadowplay. Users can now broadcast their gameplay and commentary live to gamers worldwide without the need for any additional game capture hardware or software.

“Broadcasting to Twitch has become an integral part of the gaming experience,” said Brooke Van Dusen, Director of Business Development at Twitch. “We’re extremely excited to work with NVIDIA to make Twitch live streaming available to GeForce Experience users. ShadowPlay is revolutionary, providing high quality streams with almost no noticeable performance impact for our users.”

One great aspect of this new feature is that there will be no caps on your in-game frame rates. Additionally, Twitch ShadowPlay streaming has a minimal performance impact on frame rates thanks to the H.264 hardware encoder built into GeForce GTX 600 and 700 series desktop graphics cards.

You can use your rig’s full potential to stream your content as you please. You can download the new GeForce Experience update here.
