What NVIDIA optimization does Splashtop support?

We at Splashtop have optimized our products for users who have a NVIDIA GeForce/Quadro graphics card in their computer and/or a Tegra 2 CPU in their tablet.  What this translates to is higher frame rates and lower lag time that will lead to a better experience for all remote desktop usages, especially multimedia.  Users will notice that their videos, movies, games, and other graphic-intensive content will be even more lag-free and smoother.

Optimized_for_GeForce2.png 

Hardware requirements:

  • GeForce 200, 300, 400, 500, 600 series notebook or desktop GPUs with at least 512MB FB.
  • Currently does not support Optimus configurations.
  • NVIDIA GeForce graphics started to support SLI since driver v310.70.

Driver / OS requirements:

  • Windows 7, Windows 8 32-bit, or 64-bit.
  • NVIDIA driver 275.33 and later.

Benefits:

  • Higher frame rate.
  • Lower lag time.
  • Play games or use applications in full screen.

How to enable it:

  1. Download the attached registry file.
  2. Right click on it to execute it as an administrator.
  3. Restart the streamer or reboot the computer.
  4. Then the feature will be activated.

Current Limitations:

  • Only supports single display configurations (one monitor).
  • 'Blank screen' option should be disabled.
  • Will not re-direct protected content playback on the PC.
  • If you get a black screen by enabling this feature, please disable it to work around the issue. Here are the steps to disable it:

a.  Execute regedit.exe on the computer with the streamer installed.
b.  Double-click on it to execute it.  (This step may trigger a confirm dialog box by the system; click Yes to execute if it pops up.)
c.  Search registry key "EnableNvFBC". Then change the value of the key to "0".
d.  Exit Splashtop Streamer by right-clicking on the icon in the System tray.  Then launch the Streamer again from the Start menu.  (Re-booting the computer can produce the same effect.)
e.  Try to connect again and see if the "black screen" issue is gone.

 

 

note.gif  Notes:

  • If SLI is enabled, this will conflict with GeForce optimization.  Please remember to disable SLI when GeForce optimization is enabled.  (Updating the driver to 314.07 or above may help.)
  • If SLI is enabled, this will prevent Splashtop THD from being able to play games/movies in full-screen mode.  Please disable SLI if you want to play games/movies in full-screen.  (Updating the driver to 314.07 or above may help.)
  • During our usage cases, we found that enabling or disabling SLI did not require a computer re-start.  However, if a re-start is requested in your case, please share the details about this with us regarding your system info (for example Win7/Vista, 32/64 bits, etc.).
  • If your system is equipped with dual displays like Intel+NVIDIA, NVIDIA is usually not the primary display. Please disable Intel display from BIOS or its utility program, and connect NVIDIA with a proper cable (usually HDMI).  In this way, you may get the optimization working on your Streamer.

    Hi all,

    If your Win streamer is equipped with nVidia display and is GeForce optimization enabled, Blank screen(Security tab) should not be enabled, otherwise it'll disable your GeForce optimization automatically or even crashed the Game which plays in full screen.

    Please also try:

    1.uninstall Streamer (v2.2.5.1)

    2.update display driver (314.07?)

    3.reinstall Streamer to see if there's any difference.

    @Arkana ,

    314.22 doesn't work in our internal test, please use the formal release 314.07 instead.

    Once the GeForce optimization enabled, there will be a Vnidia logo on the lower left corner on Streamer.

    Do you have to have the anywhere access pack for GeForce optimization? Sorry just can't seem to find any way to turn it on and definitely don't see a little nvidia logo on the corner and I can't launch full screen games. Geforce 525m on 314.07 windows 7 64 bit. Thanks

    @Bastian278,

    Please confirm your NV driver is 314.07, not the latest 314.22.

    Please also make sure you don't have the following conflicts.

    • Only supports single display configurations. (no dual monitors)
    • 'Blank screen' option should be disabled.
    • Will not re-direct protected content playback on the PC.

    Please help,

    Just went out and bought a new Nvidia card just for Splashtop and fullscreen isn't working. Its a GTX 660 on 320.18, latest drivers.

    I've checed the registry settings and EnableNVFBC is set to 1 and blank screen set to 0, am i missing something?

    I get the direct screen access message like i did when i had an ATI card.

    thanks

    I'm having the same problem. Made the registry changes. Have an Nvidia 560 Ti Boost... no logo is appearing on the splashtop streamer app. I've uninstalled, reinstalled. Used different NVidia driviers. No luck. Any advice on why it's not being recognized?

    Meant to say I have a 650 Ti Boost... have to install the latest drivers as the 314.7 ones that you recommend don't recognize the card as it's too new. Splashtop Streamer isn't being recognized as optimized for Nvidia... any advice? Are you planning an update soon?

    @Jamiewrigley22,

    Please try again with last driver version 314.07, the other newer versions may not work with Splashtop Streamer.

     

    @Gregt,Jamiewrigley22,

    If your NV display is not a unique display(hybrid display case), and have another display like Intel or ATI on the same system, it may not work if it isn't properly configured.

    Disable the non-NV display in BIOS or switch primary display to NV from utility program may be necessary, please contact system venfors for more info about settings configurations.

    I switched off all Intel graphics in the bios. Any graphics processes are going straight through the PCI... And, I only have one display.

    @Jaff.Kuo,

    Do you know if Nvidia will stop support on newer drivers because of the Shields similar capabilities? I'm kinda forced to upgrade my driver because of the newer 700 series cards and I would love to have this working again.

    Can't seem to make this work. I've tried with both 320.18 drivers and 314.07. Card is a GTX 690. Tried with SLI on and off. Streamer version is 2.3.5.2.  Would be really great to get this working!

    I've got Geforce 650Ti 2GB and cannot get the Nvidia acceleration working. I've removed all my drivers and downgraded to the lowest supported by my card which is 310.90. Nothing will get full screen gaming working.

    Any help or hints would be great.

    Is "Geforce Optimization" available with Windows 8?
    I have Inno 3d GT 430 with Driver Version 310.70 and currently running Windows 8.
    I can't see any "Optimized For Geforce" logo on the lower left corner of my Splashtop Streamer.

    Is there any plan to fix this problem? One of the primary buying points for Splashtop 2 and its monthly payment is that its compatible with nvidia cards and drivers beyond 275 but that doesn't appear to be the case for anyone any more... Is a fix in the works? @Jaff.Kuo what's the word? This isn't really acceptable if that's one of the marketing points of the streamer.

    Hey hey guys, for those who have Nvidia cards in their PCs and cannot see any "Optimized For Nvidia" logo on their splashtop streamer, I think I have discovered a way to figure it out :
    1)Uninstall your streamer.(From PC)
    2)Download latest streamer and install it.
    3)After installing,again run the setup and select repair.

    Now when you'll run the streamer again,you will see the logo and will be able to play games in Fullscreen.
    Tell me if it works, it worked for me.
