GeForce NOW subscribers will soon have the option of streaming games at an even higher quality, according to NVIDIA, which confirmed today the pending launch of an updated Ultimate membership tier for its cloud gaming service that’s bolstered by GeForce RTX 4080 SuperPODs, delivering over 64 teraflops of graphics horsepower, “more than 5x that of an Xbox Series X and nearly 1.75x over the previous-generation SuperPODs.”
Current GeForce NOW RTX 3080 members will be upgraded immediately to Ultimate memberships when the GeForce RTX 4080 rigs debut later this month, and they can also expect to receive a number of major streaming upgrades, including streaming at higher frame rates:
- New SuperPODs are capable of rendering and streaming at up to 240 fps
- 4K gaming upgraded from 60 FPS to 120 FPS
- Ultrawide support at up to 3,840 x 1,600 resolution, including 3440 x 1440 and 2560 x 1080
“NVIDIA’s Ada architecture is a big leap in graphics quality, and through GeForce NOW we’re streaming an RTX 4080 experience to more devices and more gamers than ever,” said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of GeForce at NVIDIA. “GeForce NOW Ultimate members will have the technology and the performance to experience even the most demanding games in their full ray-traced glory.”
A one-month subscription to GeForce NOW’s Ultimate membership tier costs $19.99, while a six-month membership costs $99.99.
Other perks of the Ultimate membership tier include an extended, eight-hour session length.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, and Battlefield 2042 are just a small sample of games that joined GeForce NOW last month.
