Usability Research at NVIDIA

The Usability Research team at NVIDIA wants your feedback to understand your needs and deliver the best user experience for NVIDIA products. We conduct feedback surveys, focus groups, and various other types of usability evaluations to ensure our products meet and exceed your needs.

Get Involved!
If you want your input to directly affect current and future NVIDIA products, sign-up to receive Usability Research Study invitations. If you live in or around the San Francisco Bay area, we conduct usability studies at our Santa Clara campus. For users from other parts of the US and around the world we conduct remote usability studies over the phone.

When you participate in a study you have the opportunity to provide your feedback directly to the NVIDIA product and development teams. Also, you will receive an honorarium or gift as an appreciation for your time and valuable feedback.

Usability Study Process
On the day of your study session, when you arrive at NVIDIA, the usability engineer will greet you in the lobby and escort you to the usability participant's room. The engineer will give an overview of the participant's room and walk you through the study session. You will be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement, as most of the products evaluated are early in the development stage and not ready for public release. Once the study begins, you will perform a set of pre-defined tasks on the product being evaluated. The engineer and other observers will take notes during the session. Once you have completed the tasks we will ask you a few questions about your experience with the product. The entire session will be recorded to help our researchers analyze any issues you encountered while using the product. All the data we collect is strictly confidential and will not be used for any other purposes than to improve our products.

For remote usability studies we email you the instructions and conduct the study over the phone.
