    Yeah, nice overly NVIDIA, didn't notice it until it got me killed in ARMA3. Alt+Z is a bad default keybind....

    Does DDU remove GFE? If so then this would certainly suck for those people who like clean driver installs. Hopefully Nvidia changes their mind. That would be like AMD requiring Raptr for driver updates, I would not be cool with that.

    who said you have to use it ? simply disable service and don't launch it, except for when updating game ready driver I guess...

    This is terrible news. I don't use GeForce Experience. I never install it.
    But now I have to have it installed and running just to have updated drivers. This is BS!

    Getting really tired of nVidia pulling stunts like this. I bought a 970, but now I'm really sorry I did. Between the 3.5GB fiasco and now locking out acess to drivers, it's pretty obvious that nVidia has no longer any respect for it's costumers.

    I never used Geforce experience and i hope they will never force me to.And indeed we can disable it in services menu but after awhile they'll come up with something else.I hope they keep their drivers just like they are now,custom install and nvinspector FTW.:nerd:

    They will back down imo, they are testing the waters like when they said mobile gpu oc was enabled by mistake and removed it, there was a big backlash and they reenabled it again. My guess is they will back down on this as well.

    Just another reason for me to look at AMD for my next card. Talk about shooting themselves in the foot.

    I think they will back down as well.

    Hopefully you can just work around using experience and just use it to install drivers. If you can, it's not such a big deal, even though this is disturbing news.

    NVIDIA really needs to be careful. AMD's new R9 Fury X out performs both the GTX 980 Ti and the Titan X in recently released benchmarks, and is much cheaper. Furthermore, not everyone who owns an NVIDIA card is 100% loyal to the brand and will swing back and forth between them and AMD depending on who has the more attractive cards.

    I have seen it coming and it's getting ridiculous. That's expected with free software. Once they take the money out of it then you are forced to do as told or just don't bother at all.

    The amount of spying tools in Windows 10 is a joke. I can only assume that these tools will be used to make money.

    GFE being forced on everyone must be for a reason. I can only imagine them doing this so they can garner more information from it's users. Why else would they do it.

    am i the only one that with the beta of geforce experience has got 50% usage of both cards?

    i have a bad issue with shadow play, if i just activate it (not recording, just allow it to record if i want) it gives me 60/80% of both card usage...

    i think that if im forced to use that geforce experience i sell one card... this monopoly start to be really painfull

    I have used GFE for a while so the change changes nothing for me.

    It seems the main issue is people don't want to use GFE because it has issues with their PC. Does that mean if they fixed the issues you wouldn't mind having it?

    I don't have it installed either because I don't need it, but if I had to I wouldn't mind. Assuming that it did not cause issues. And if they are going to force people to use it I would think those issues are going to be solved.

    In other words, the main issue shouldn't be that you are forced to have it, it should be that the program itself is supposedly flawed. (but then again, time after time, when other people complain about NV I seem to have zero issues).

    Besides, I'm sure the drivers will be mirrored by someone.
