GeForce Now Subscribers Can Now Stream Cloud Games in 4K On Windows And Mac – IGN
Nvidia has announced new incentives for those who are subscribed to the RTX 3080-tier of its cloud gaming service, GeForce Now. This includes the option to stream games in 4K on the native apps for PC and Mac.
As announced in the latest blog post, Nvidia confirmed that RTX 3080 subscribers can now stream games in 4K resolution and 60FPS when playing games on the native GeForce Now apps on both PC and Mac. Previously, these subscribers with the membership tier could only stream games on the PC and Mac clients at a resolution of 1440p, while the 4K resolution was exclusive to those who owned an Nvidia Shield TV.
Nvidia also announced that six new Android-based smartphones now support high refresh rate cloud gaming, at 1080p and 120Hz; this includes Samsung’s Galaxy S22 series, such as the S22 Ultra, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Z Flip 3, in addition to the OnePlus 9 Pro. Smartphones that already support this feature include the Samsung’s Galaxy S21 series and the Google Pixel 6 Pro.
The announcement comes less than a year after Nvidia announced the RTX 3080-tier membership, which allowed those struggling, to buy a card in Nvidia’s RTX 30 series – allowing subscribers to play games with an RTX 3080 PC gaming rig without physically buying the GPU.
