Nvidia’s GeForce NOW Cloud Gaming service is changing a bit by offering a new GeForce RTX 3080-based subscription. Here’s what you need to know.
Nvidia spends the second and will considerably improve the hardware available via its Cloud Gaming service by offering the Cloud equivalent of the RTX 3080. That is “three times the power of an Xbox Series X” as explained without blushing the official website of the green.
RTX 3080 to strengthen GeForce Now
The GPU is also accompanied by an 8-core / 16 processor threads, with 28 GB of RAM to complete the trio. The goal is to be able to offer video game streaming in 1440p in 120 FPS and that does not matter your reference platform. As always and that does not change, it takes at least 35 MB / s of bandwidth or optical fiber. Optical fiber, which is still far from being deployed everywhere in France. The GeForce Now RTX 3080 subscription extends the maximum duration of sessions to 8 hours (compared to 6 with the priority offer).
New data centers to improve the whole
These changes and performance improvements come especially after the deployment of new data centers bearing the sweet name of Superpods and being optimized for video games. In addition to better computing power, they take advantage of a technology called adaptive synchronization. Without going into technical details to eliminate jerks as much as possible for better latency. Nvidia’s goal is to be able to offer a system latency of 56 ms with GeForce Now.
In terms of pricing, this subscription clearly increases the bill with a subscription to 99.99 euros for six months, or 16.67 per month. Knowing that it is not possible to turn to a more limited period. Note that the service grants a 10% reduction in GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership to founding members.
At last, the availability of this subscription will debut in November in North America and from December in Europe. Be careful, the quantities will be quite limited.
