RTX and geforce experience

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello LTTers.

I am rocking the EVGA RTX 2060 XC gaming and recently I have perma crashes in certain games, and I was wondering if Nvidia did put a joke in this card line-up by forcing us to install geforce experience in order for it to work properly? I never used this software but, I don't know what to do and i'd prefer no to install GFE if I do not have to.

You should be able to install drivers without having to install GF Experience...

Did you try to re-install video drivers, removing them with DDU first?

A Nvidia graphics card should work fine without the Geforce Experience.

What is your power supply and CPU ?

Did you try the card in an other computer ?

It works just fine in every games except in Origin games since today. Anthem, Apex Legends and Battlefront 2 can launch but immediatly crash. There was updates on those games not so long ago and I did not play to them since those updates. 

Im on 419.17 and never had any problem in other games or those glitchy games before those updates.


I was asking for the necessity of Geforce Experience concerning DLSS and Ray Tracing, even if those games don't use it, I thought i might had forgot an element like the GFE software. Since I've never used it i thought that nvidia may have pulled of a good joke forcing people to install it to download data concerning the Turing cards functions.

I'd made that mistake a couple of times, by simply being lazy or not paying attention when I was installing the driver for my GTX 1080. IF you don't want GFE (crap anyway, dumbs down ingame settings), you'll have to uninstall your present driver, along with GFE, using DDU to be safe, and reinstall. This time, pay attention, there's a point before the installation of the driver where you can choose to install driver with GFE, or just driver. I had glossed over it a couple of times, and when GFE was installed,, I was like, "What the heck?!"

Sorry, my english might be confusing since it is not my native language.

I did not install GFE this time when i installed the 419.17 drivers, and i never installed the GFE software on any of my pc :)

I always take care to only install the drivers, like you just advised me to do (I'll however admit that, once, i was in a hurry and did let it slip throught the installer but i erased it immediatly).


My question here is : Is GFE needed to enjoy my RTX 2060 to the fullest? On the web, i saw that people were mad because the DLSS function could only be achieved if the consumer downloaded DLSS datas by GFE to then be able to enjoy it (This is what some said on reddit).


And the strangest thing is that i did not have any problem with Apex Legends and Anthem before their "Nvidia rtx compatibility patchs" and now i do! Hence the wondering if it is a driver and/or software issue, unrelated to the games themselves. I know those games juste use the turing gpu like any other architecture, but why the heck is it not working, if it was before xD
