Meanwhile,…

NVIDIA is testing an app that unifies GeForce Experience and Control Panel

NVIDIA is that lets users adjust GPU settings, install software and fine-tune gameplay, all from the same place. Currently, you have to access the dated Control Panel app and do some heavy menu diving to do stuff like configuring G-Sync.

The user interface looks…
