Nvidia is bringing its G-Sync technology to the cloud with GeForce Now. The support will be added soon, according to Nvidia, allowing variable refresh rate monitors to match the streaming rate of games from Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming service.
Nvidia first supported 120fps output on its RTX 3080 tier of GeForce Now in 2021 and soon bumped this to up to 240fps on its RTX 4080 servers last year. It was backed by Nvidia’s Reflex technology, which evaluates and decreases system latency in games. Now, that same Reflex tech is being expanded to work with 4K titles and 60 / 120fps streaming modes.
“With both Cloud G-SYNC and Reflex, members will feel as if they’re connected directly to GeForce Now’s RTX 4080 SuperPODs, making their visual experiences smoother, clearer and more immersive than ever,” claims Nvidia.
Nvidia is also offering a 1440p streaming option on Android, ideal for tablets and phones with larger screens. GeForce Now members will also be able to turn their Android devices into a portable gaming rig, connecting their device to a 1080p or 1440p gaming monitor or TV to stream games.
While Nvidia’s top GeForce Now Ultimate membership has long been impressive for cloud gaming, the $19.99 per month pricing is a high bar of entry for anyone looking to try it out before committing to a subscription. Nvidia will start offering day passes in early February, offering access to either priority GeForce Now or the Ultimate membership benefits. Ultimate day passes, which include the all-important RTX 4080 access, will be available for $7.99 and Priority priced at $3.99.
Nvidia’s partnership with Microsoft to bring Xbox and Activision Blizzard PC games to GeForce Now continues soon with the addition of Diablo IV and Overwatch 2. Support for the Battle.net launcher will follow soon, too. While Diablo IV launched with DLSS 3 support, it’s also getting ray tracing in March.
GeForce Now is also launching in Japan in the spring, with new data centers opening in Poland, Chile, and Thailand. This latest expansion means GeForce Now is available in 110 countries.
