Site Update

20 March 2015


About a month ago I promised that the revised Nvidia GeForce (formerly Forceware) Tweak Guide would be released soon. Well it's been tougher than I thought, but the good news is it's nearing completion. As promised, it is essentially an entirely new guide, completely rewritten from scratch. The major Nvidia Control Panel settings are covered in full detail, thoroughly researched, tested and, where relevant, screenshot comparisons provided. Every major tweaking tool is also covered. A lot of the less useful/superfluous stuff has been removed. I'm quite confident that you will like it, so stay tuned for the release soon.
