So, the recently last years, NVIDIA has been dabbling in offering game streaming services and starting out as GeForce GRID for the controller shaped SHIELD portable, and the service has morphed over the years in scope and technology. And now a bit over 2 years later, NVIDIA is finally taking the service out of beta and is formally launching the commercial GeForce Is NOW service.
And Now, NVIDIA is seemed a bit unsure about where to price the service at and the company is charging $4.99/month for the first 12 months and to further sweeten the deal and the first 3 months are free and It’s worth noting that NVIDIA is being much more conservative about resolutions here and 4K streaming is not available for GeForce now. and even on the paid tier instead, the service tops out at 1080p60p, with NVIDIA recommending a 50Mbps connection for amazing results and As for the available platforms, NVIDIA is launching with the same platforms as in the previous beta and this the Geforce Noe client is available for Windows, macOS, and Android. And NVIDIA is running its own server clusters in North America and Western Europe, with 9 sites in North America and 6 in Europe to try to keep latency down.
And there’s free membership that provides one hour sessions with standard access to GeForce now servers and the concept of cloud gaming has been around for some time and the idea that putting the high performance compute part of gaming in the cloud would result in more efficient use of hardware and the ability to provide that gaming content to a much wider set of client platforms.
