NZXT is attempting to make its CAM software smarter with the new 4.0 update, which includes improvements to the user interface, transparent privacy controls, and overall stability. Many of these changes are based on user feedback, which should hopefully mean that those updating to 4.0 will enjoy the overhaul.
NZXT CEO Johnny Hou admitted that CAM hadn’t got “the attention that it deserves,” and that the company has now “dedicated more time and resources to improving NZXT CAM and that will continue to be a focus.”
Take a look at the main features of NZXT CAM 4.0 below:
Stable, Fast, and Resource-efficient
NZXT CAM 4.0 is optimized so that it will launch and install quicker, be less resource-intensive on a system, and be more stable to provide users with the best experience.
Simple and Modern UI
A simplified user interface allows users to quickly find the data that they want to see and prioritizes the information that they need to know.
Transparent Privacy Controls
All data sent through NZXT CAM 4.0 is anonymized and will be used only to improve the user experience for NZXT CAM. Any user has the ability to opt-out of sending NZXT any of their data.
NZXT CAM 4.0 provides users with a holistic view of their system’s current and historical performance by now including bandwidth usage and per-process resource usage.
Redesigned In-Game Overlay
An improved overlay allows for customization of the information that they want to see in-game, such as frames per second, bandwidth usage, system temps, and CPU and GPU usage.
Streamlined User Profiles
Easily save profiles that can easily be switched based on a user’s needs at that time. All data is backed up to the cloud for ease of access in case of a system reformat.
Every NZXT CAM enabled device is supported in version 4.0. Users will still be able to use NZXT CAM set fan curves, RGB lighting, and with a reworked adaptive noise reduction feature coming soon.
Existing CAM users are encouraged to update the software to 4.0. New users can download the app for free here.
