Hate mucking around in PC game graphics menus? NVIDIA's got an app for that -- and now, AMD does too. The chipmaker has teamed up with Raptr, a video game-focused social network, to launch Gaming Evolved: a suite that offers tools for chat, takes screenshots and even tweaks game settings for better performance.

So its a combo of the Raptr desktop app and Nvidia's GeForce Experience?

Seems like an interesting idea. Is it only for AMD GPU's?

@The_Animator420: yep.

Its their answer for the geforce experience basically.

I think relying on the raptr community for the best configuration for the game based on specs comparitive may end up with a better result then the GeForce Ex.

Only tried it on bioshock infinite so far and it changed my resolution to 720p >_<

I've been using Raptr for many years. But this whole Geforce experience/Evolved thing seems just pointless.

it could be really good for certain games, like the most popular stuff like league of legends. but it will only be as useful as how its users use it.

Sounds great for people who don't know what they're doing.

Out of the several hundred major titles I have installed, it had support for three of them, and it didn't seem to work at all with them.

Raptr has been around for a while and I have enjoyed using it to track the games I play. So, I tried using the Gaming Evolved Control Center to optimize settings for Wow, Borderlands 2, Diablo 3, Far Cry 3/Blood Dragon, & DOTA 2 - but, it didn't improve anything at all. In fact, it decreased performance in each case : /

This may be a result of me using a Crossfire setup, which combines 2 AMD cards...or maybe they just need time to iron out the kinks?
