The Nvidia GeForce Now cloud gaming service has officially broadened its streaming possibilities for PCs and Macs, a few years after its launch. On Windows and macOS, GeForce Now supports 4K streaming.
Streaming Games in 4K/60 Fps
The cloud gaming service can now broadcast games up to 4K/60FPS, as long as the user’s monitor can handle that quality and refresh rate, thanks to improvements to the Windows and macOS apps. This, however, only applies to native apps and not to web clients.
The game also enables 120 frames per second, but only in 1440p quality. To access the new 4K/60 fps streaming, you’ll need to pay $20 per month for GeForce Now’s RTX 3080 tier subscription. Users of GeForce Now on PCs and Macs could only get 1440p 120 fps on Windows and 1600p 120 fps on macOS if they subscribed to the RTX 3080 tier.
About the Nvidia GeForce Now
The strong hardware underpinning DLSS and GeForce Now, according to Nvidia, allows for this upscaled resolution. It’s also a significant accomplishment for Nvidia’s GeForce Now, one of the cloud gaming services that supports 4K streaming on a range of devices.
In a blog post, Nvidia also revealed that 27 new titles will be added to the service in May. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars Battlefront II are among the first ten games available now.
Finally, Nvidia has announced support for more smartphones with 120 Hz capabilities. You can play games from your Steam and Epic libraries at up to 120 frames per second if you have a compatible phone and an RTX 3080 GeForce Now subscription.
