NVIDIA today announced that the new NVIDIA GeForce NOW game streaming service is coming to Windows PCs. The GeForce NOW service connects gamers to GeForce GTX 1080 PCs in cloud data centers, renders games with the latest NVIDIA GameWorks visual technology and streams them in high definition to PCs.
Gamers simply download the GeForce NOW app to their local machine. With a few clicks, they can connect to their own GeForce GTX virtual PC, install their favorite games from popular digital game stores — like Steam, Battle.net, Origin, Uplay and GOG — and start playing. They can also buy new games when they become available and start playing. GeForce NOW also saves in the cloud game progress and achievements, and synchronizes them with locally installed games. This means gamers can use GeForce NOW on a secondary laptop and pick up right where they left off playing on their primary gaming PC.
When gamers register for GeForce NOW, they can play for free for 8 hours on a GeForce GTX 1060 PC or 4 hours on a GeForce GTX 1080 PC. For an additional $25, gamers can play for 20 hours on a GTX 1060 PC or 10 hours on a GTX 1080 PC.
Early access to the new GeForce NOW service is scheduled for March in theUS, with full commercial service slated for the spring. If you are interested, you can sign up for the early access waiting list.
