It turns a great PC into a great gaming PC with innovative features that are only available with GeForce GPUs.

And speaking of filters, NVIDIA has also added more to its Ansel in-game camera. In case you weren't aware of, the NVIDIA Freestyle lets you apply post-processing filters to your games.

At the time of launch, there's 15 filters and 38 different settings (some filters have multiple settings) to choose from. Dubbed GeForce Now, the service will let you stream PC games to your PC or Mac from the cloud, utilizing the power of high-performance GeForce GTX graphics cards. Its new system, known as Freestyle, allows modifications to be implemented right into the Nvidia software, giving users without the technical know-how, inclination or time, to enjoy the benefits of an overhauled lighting and coloring system that can have such a big impact on how games look. The free software is now capable of running more than 160 games at maximum visual settings, at up to 120 fps. While numerous available filters and settings may help to add some flair to gameplay, there's also a colorblind mode created to help those with colorblindness better distinguish colors, and a night mode that cuts down on blue light to facilitate improved sleep.

Examples of usage include applying the retro themed filter to your favourite WWII FPS game, or on a more serious note helping people who are colour-blind to recognise different colours - sometimes that's important.

NVIDIA is diving into curious new territory with its next GeForce Experience update: filters.

We've integrated Freestyle at the driver level for seamless compatibility with games. Freestyle will initially be released into beta with support for over 100 games.

On January 10, Fortnite Battle Royale will add support for ShadowPlay Highlights, joining Atom, Lawbreakers, Nioh, Paragon, PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS and Raiders of a Broken Planet as titles that support the feature. Just select games from your personal library of PC titles or purchase new ones from the digital store of your choice, like Steam® and Uplay™ PC.

The new Freestyle game filters and Ansel photo mode features will be available in beta on January 9. You can enable them via the Experimental Features from within GeForce Experience settings.
