NVIDIA's GeForce Now cloud gaming service received a huge upgrade last year when it received support for 4K gaming at 60 frames per second (fps). It was released with the new premium RTX 3080 tier but was exclusive to the NVIDIA Shield TV. The good news is that the company has finally expanded its support for PCs and Mac.
It means you can now enjoy GeForce Now games in 4K at 60fps on your PC or Mac. It goes without saying that you will need to have a display panel that supports 4K resolution. Another thing to keep in mind is that the high-resolution support is accessible only via native apps. It will not work if you will use the browser client to play games.
In the official announcement, NVIDIA said:
"4K streaming gets a boost by NVIDIA DLSS, groundbreaking AI rendering technology that increases graphics performance using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on RTX GPUs. DLSS taps into the power of a deep learning neural network to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images for games."
The team has further expanded 120fps gaming support to more mobile devices. These include the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22 Ultra, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3, and OnePlus 9 Pro. This is also available only for the premium RTX 3080 subscription tier users. It is the most expensive tier of the service as it costs $20 for a month and $100 for six months.
Lastly, the GeForce Now library is receiving a total of 27 new gaming titles this month. NVIDIA says 10 of these titles are already available to stream while others will be added by the end of May. The games that you can start playing right away are:
- Bakery Simulator
- Dinosaur Fossil Hunter
- Warhammer 40,000: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters
- Trek to Yomi
- Crowns and Pawns: Kingdom of Deceit
- Star Wars Battlefront II
- Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
- Star Wars: Squadrons
