NVIDIA’s close partnership with CD Projekt Red is easy to see, as witnessed by this week’s announcement of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Cyberpunk 2077 Edition. Now, NVIDIA has announced that the highly-anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 will be playable on GeForce NOW on day one. What’s even more good news – at least for those with a Founders membership – is that the game will fully support RTX real-time ray tracing effects via the streaming service. Gamers will be able to purchase the game on launch day directly from Steam, after which “GeForce NOW Founders members can explore the streets of Night City with RTX ON, fully optimized and instantly available, even on...

This will come as little consolation to early GeForce NOW adopters, but that whole messy situation with Activision-Blizzard abruptly pulling its titles from the game streaming service right after its public launch? Well aw shucks, folks, it was just a simple "misunderstanding." In short, NVIDIA thought the agreement it had with Activision during the GeForce NOW beta period extended into the public launch. NVIDIA was wrong. So, what does this mean for gamers? Nothing has really changed—GeForce NOW is still devoid of Activision games, and there is absolutely no clarity on when or even if they will return to the service at a later date. "Activision Blizzard has been a fantastic partner during... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce NOW game streaming service exited beta last week and became a commercially avail product to the masses. What makes GeForce NOW so special is that it connects to existing PC game stores, allowing you to stream games that you have already purchased, to various computing platforms regardless of horsepower and capability, from set top box devices like NVIDIA Shield, to laptops, Macs, mobile devices and everything in between. So, despite the fact that you might have an underpowered PC, a Mac, Chromebook, or even an Android smartphone, it's still possible to partake in 1080p 60fps PC gaming from anywhere, as long as you have a stable internet connection (~30Mbps, 5GHz WiFi...

It may have taken a few years, but at long last, NVIDIA last week launched its GeForce NOW game streaming service to the public at large. Somewhat similar to Google Stadia, GeForce NOW is a cloud-based game streaming service. NVIDIA has been mum on the specific hardware specifications that power GeForce NOW, though a few recent leaks strongly suggest it is run by an Intel CC150 CPU and GeForce RTX T10-8 GPU. Neither of those are common parts found in the consumer space, so looking at the model names alone, there is no way to discern the level of power they provide (outside of the "RTX" designation, which indicates dedicated RT hardware for real-time ray tracing, and Tensor Cores). Fortunately,... Read more...
NVIDIA's GeForce NOW game streaming service is now available for all, meaning that it is no longer relegated to a select few that were accepted in waves as part of the early beta program. With this announcement, anyone can now join in with the service that allows you to bring the power of PC gaming to just about any modern computing platform including Macs, Smart TVs, the SHIELD TV, and Android phones. For those that may have not followed the development of GeForce NOW over the past four and a half years, it allows you to stream games at Full HD resolution at 60+ fps -- even on relatively "underpowered" devices like low-end PCs and smartphones. The primary limiting factor... Read more...
NVIDIA has been talking up the GeForce Now for mobile gaming for a while. It recently promised to bring the service to Android devices in the future via an Android beta. Initially, the service was in beta only for Windows, Mac, and NVIDIA Shield users. The beta on those platforms is expected to end in a few months, with the service launching in full at that time. Android fans looking forward to streaming some games to their Android devices will be glad to hear that the GeForce Now app has launched in beta for Android. The catch is that the launch is only in Korea. The bright side for Android gamers wanting in on the action outside of Korea is that you can sideload the APK, which can be downloaded... Read more...
AT&T and NVIDIA have announced that they will be working together on the MGM Resorts NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. AT&T has enabled its 5G network in parts of Las Vegas, and it's highlighting the 5G tech in a sponsorship of the NBA Summer League starting with live games earlier this week. The AT&T 5G technology is being leveraged to allow the wireless streaming of high-quality video and game streaming coupled with NVIDIA's GeForce NOW service. AT&T provided its 5G mmWave spectrum with Ericsson as its network infrastructure backbone for the service. The tie-up allowed the streaming of live video from Samsung devices in the stands at the games. The video streamed live from... Read more...
We all know the NVIDIA SHIELD TV to be one of the best 4K media streamers on the market. With the power of the Android TV platform, the SHIELD TV gives you access to Android apps, popular streaming services (like Netflix and Amazon Video), and even allows you to play games with a dedicated wireless controller. However, the SHIELD TV's gaming prowess is about to get a lot better thanks to the addition of GeForce NOW support. NVIDIA announced today that GeForce NOW will be coming to the SHIELD TV "in the very near future". GeForce NOW is already available in beta for PC and Mac platform, and allows you to stream AAA game titles to your system (even if it isn't spec'd out with... Read more...
Google apparently wants a nice share of the pie when it comes to the booming global gaming market according to a new report. The online giant is reportedly working on a game streaming service codenamed Yeti, which would be somewhat comparable to existing solutions like NVIDIA's GeForce Now or Sony's PlayStation Now. Google is already a dominant force in video streaming thanks to YouTube, so stepping into the game streaming fray could be a lucrative venture for the company. Yeti would require subscribers to pay a monthly fee for access to a broad library of games. But how will Google pull it off? According to The Information (paywall), one solution would be to use existing Chromecast hardware... Read more...
NVIDIA is bringing its cloud-based GeForce Now game service to PCs and Macs, the company announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Previously exclusive to Shield device owners, it was only a matter of time before NVIDIA invited PC gamers to the fold, many of which lack the necessary hardware to play high-end titles. That is what NVIDIA is banking on, anyway. GeForce Now is powered by NVIDIA's mighty Pascal architecture, and specifically its GeForce GTX 1060 and GTX 1080 graphics cards, which have been outfitted in the company's cloud data centers. When gamers register for GeForce Now, they can play for free for 8 hours on a GeForce GTX 1060 PC or 4 hours on a GeForce GTX... Read more...
NVIDIA has been a champion of game streaming for a number of years now. Whether it be from a GeForce GTX-equipped PC to one of its SHIELD devices or from its cloud-based GRID beta service to a SHIELD, NVIDIA has been at the forefront of game streaming for a quite a while. Today though, NVIDIA is kicking its game streaming business up a few notches by launching a new service dubbed GeForce NOW. The NVIDIA GeForce NOW service streams PC games from the cloud to SHIELD devices at up to Full HD 1080p resolutions at 60 fps. It may be tempting to call GeForce NOW an official re-branding of its GRID game streaming beta, which has been available for free on SHIELD devices up to this point, but we’re... Read more...
