  • VibranceGUI

    Free Windows Website

    VibranceGUI is an application that automates NVIDIAs Digital Vibrance Control ("DVC") by utilizing the NVIDIA Driver API. AMD support for automating Saturation has been added.

    Using Digital Vibrance (NVIDIA) or Saturation (AMD) in your graphic card driver can add an additional blast to your gaming experience due to more colorful images being output to your monitor. It might even give you a slight edge when playing competitively in games like CS:GO.

    The use of these settings comes with a huge downside though. Whenever switching out of a game back to Windows, the colors are still vibrant and don't fit in the appearance of Windows. This happens because both settings will be applied system-wide. Luckily for you, this is where vibranceGUI comes into play.

    Digital Vibrance/Saturation might give you an advantage in games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, as it will ease spotting enemies in the game. Many professional players use Digital Vibrance/Saturation nowadays. Some examples: GeT_RiGhT, f0rest, friberg, ScreaM. However, changing the setting manually in NVIDIAs or AMDs Control Panel after quitting CS:GO is annoying and that's why I decided to create this tool. If you're still unsure about the benefits of Digital Vibrance/Saturation, go ahead and look them up on the CS:GO subreddit.
