Nvidia's Pascal-based GeForce GTX graphics cards are awesome, but the price tag of a complete gaming PC and the associated maintenance headaches can be formidable barriers of entry into high-end PC gaming.

"Indeed, Nvidia claims Freestyle is mostly meant to serve as an outlet for creativity, citing examples like "[creating] a retro war-themed filter for your favorite FPS or [enhancing] color and contrast to make a game look more photorealistic" as possible uses for the new feature.

GeForce Experience is getting some new creative tools as well as additional game support in Shadowplay highlights. The free software is now capable of running more than 160 games at maximum visual settings, at up to 120 fps.

Not all games are supported by Freestyle. Over 150 popular titles are included in the game compatibility list, though the Rockstar Games catalog appears to be missing. Just be sure to run the latest version of GeForce Experience and the Game Ready Drivers, enable Experimental Features, and you're all set.

In addition to those BFGDs, NVIDIA is rolling out GeForce NOW to most Windows desktops and laptops, offering a game streaming service to any compatible machine.
