NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW only launched a few weeks ago but is quickly making big strides. One such giant step is having over 1,500 games signed up for the streaming service. CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 was just announced as coming to the steaming service at launch. Adding to an already impressive lineup it will likely help showcase the service’s brand of game streaming technology. The battle for cloud gaming and streaming services is on in 2020 and NVIDIA looks to be asserting itself with their considerable technological resources for it. As if that wasn’t enough they claim over one million users have now signed up.
” Earlier this month, we passed a milestone on our cloud gaming journey by removing the wait list and opening our doors to more gamer’s. Over 1 million new gamer’s have taken to the cloud by signing up for a free plan or upgrading to the Founders membership, which includes a 90-day free trial. “ – Phil Eisler
What makes GeForce NOW different?
NVIDIA GeForce NOW has a bit of a different take compared to Google’s Stadia or Microsoft’s Xbox Game Streaming. Google Stadia currently lets you stream games from their cloud using the Chromecast dongle. Support is in the works for using apps on devices without the dongle. The Xbox Game Streaming service will let you stream from your console to an Android device. GeForce NOW separates itself from the pack with some different features. One such goal is to allow users stream their entire game library to a wide range of devices. Using a tiered pricing approach, they offer another twist that is presently unique to NVIDIA. The paid version will allow users to use the highly publicized, and currently exclusive, ray tracing technology via the cloud. This can allow users to experience ray tracing without having to buy the premium priced Turing GPU’s.
