GeForce Now: a subscription five times more expensive than the Xbox Series X

Nvidia is launching a new, much faster offer for its GeForce Now service with an “Ultimate” subscription whose characteristics surpass the Xbox Series X and the PS5.

Nvidia definitely did not travel empty on its way to CES 2023 in Las Vegas. In addition to the 4070 Ti which was promoted with the splendid Atomic Heart, the manufacturer unveiled a new level for its GeForce Now.

GeForce Now defeats new-gen consoles

During its conference, Nvidia announced its new cloud gaming subscription: the GeForce Now Ultimate. A third paying level for “peak performance” with an RTX 4080 and its 64 Teraflops. A power that represents “more than 5 times that of a Xbox Series X and nearly 1.75 times that of previous generation SuperPODs” – and therefore that of the PS5 – according to the company.

Before, subscribers had to make do with a 3080, but now it will be a 4080 for 19.99€ per month Where €99.99 for 6 months. The deployment will also be progressive and automatic for those who have already subscribed.

Ultimate members will automatically get early access to next-gen GeForce RTX 4080 performance as servers become available. Get ready to game in the cloud at the highest resolutions and frame rates – up to 4K at 120fps or 240fps with the new Reflex mode – while enjoying exclusive access to our fastest game servers and most extensive game sessions.

This GeForce Now Ultimate plan includes all possible premium benefits, namely:

  • A platform equipped with an RTX 4080
  • Access to the fastest servers
  • Game sessions for 8 hours. Beyond that, you have to cut and restart
  • Up to 4K resolution at 120fps
  • A latency that goes from 56ms (RTX 3080) to 36ms (RTX 4080)

Performances that vary depending on the device on which the application is launched (PC, Mac…), and especially the internet connection. Nvidia recommends at least 35 Mbit/s for its GeForce Now streaming service to achieve 1440p or 1600p at 120 frames per second, and a wired Ethernet connection or a 5 GHz wireless router.
