After a long beta period, Nvidia has finally launched its GeForce Now cloud gaming service. Basically, you will rent a gaming PC at the data center, allowing you to play highly configurable games with just a leper or a MacBook. Monthly subscription fee is currently only 5 USD, a pretty attractive price.
Unlike Google’s Stadia, GeForce Now doesn’t try to build a console-like experience with its own games. Instead, Nvidia will connect to your Steam, Epic or Battle.net account, to play the games you have purchased from these 3rd party platforms.
Users can try it out by creating a free account. However, free accounts will be limited. When there are too many people connecting, you will have to wait in line. Playing time and hardware will also be more limited than the paid account.
Currently, GeForce Now is not available anywhere in the world, because you have to be near Nvidia’s data center to reduce latency. Currently, Nvidia has 9 data centers in the US, 5 in Europe, 1 in South Korea and 2 in Japan. Unfortunately, this service is not currently supported in Vietnam.
Nvidia doesn’t reveal much about gaming hardware support on GeForce Now, but claims that it will use the latest VGA that supports ray tracing.
