Nvidia launched its software GeForce now at CES 2018 on January 4th, though it was previously launched for Android tablets and set-top boxes but now they are mainly launched for low-end computers and apple MACs. In this post, you will know everything about the newly upgraded Nvidia GeForce Now software for low-end PCs and MACs.
Nvidia Geforce is now spreading its roots through low-end PCs and Macs
The new GeForce NOW service connects gamers to GeForce® GTX 1080 PCs in cloud data centers, renders games with the latest NVIDIA GameWorks™ visual technology and streams them in high definition to PCs and Macs.
Jen-Hsun Huang, founder and chief executive officer of NVIDIA, who announced the service during his keynote address at CES said that:
There are more than 200 million GeForce gamers around the world today, yet hundreds of millions of others have computers that aren’t well-suited for modern video games. With GeForce NOW, a new generation of gamers can now play the latest PC games with great performance and amazing quality.
GeForce NOW was in development at NVIDIA for five years and now it is compatible with most Windows and Mac-based desktop PCs and laptops. Gamers can now simply download the GeForce NOW app to their local machine. With a few clicks, they can connect to their own GeForce GTX virtual PC, install their favorite games from popular digital game stores like Steam, Battle.net, Origin, Uplay, and GOG and start playing. Many free-to-play games like World of Tanks can also be installed directly from their respective websites.
GeForce NOW gives gamers the freedom to enjoy high-performance PC gaming anywhere. And the service makes gaming easier than it’s ever been by automatically installing patches and driver updates
Pricing and availability
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 1080 PC. For an additional $25, gamers can play for 20 hours on a GTX 1060 PC or 10 hours on a GTX 1080 PC.
Early access to the new GeForce NOW service is scheduled for March in the continental United States, with full commercial service slated for the spring.
How this software works?
Users can play high-end games through virtual pcs powered by pretty high-end GPUs though ethernet and internet connections.
GeForce Now connects users to individual GeForce GTX-powered virtual PCs which allow them to install games from popular services such as Steam, Origin, GOG, Uplay, and more. This also enables Mac users to access any game even if a Mac version is not yet available.
Home or Away; Desktop or Laptop; PC or Mac.
GeForce NOW provides a simple way for new players who may not have access to a high-performance GeForce GTX gaming rig to experience high-performance PC gaming. Gamers can use the service to easily transform aging Windows-based PCs or laptops with integrated graphics into state-of-the-art gaming machines. They can also play the hottest new PC game releases on their Macs without waiting for the Mac versions to become available.
Gamers can enjoy games they already own on the stores mentioned above, as well as purchase new games as soon as they’re available. GeForce NOW saves in the cloud game progress and achievements and synchronizes them with locally installed games. This means gamers can use GeForce NOW on a secondary laptop and pick up right where they left off playing on their primary gaming PC. They can easily take all their games with them on the road, to their dorm room, a friend’s house or simply another room in the home.
Consequences of the software
However, this service isn’t perfect. GeForce Now takes a while to fully load up, but Nvidia did mention that it is working to speed things up. Currently, loading up Rise of the Tomb Raider from the service via Steam takes about 1-3 minutes. Everything will, of course, depend on your internet connection and an ethernet connection is strongly recommended.
This software is a dream for those users who cant afford high-end PCs or using MACs for official works now can play their favorite games without any issues, only they should have a nice and steady internet or ethernet connections.
