GeForce NOW gives gamers the freedom to enjoy high-performance PC gaming just about anywhere. It connects a wide range of Windows and macOS computers to supercomputers in the cloud, streaming 1080p graphics at up to 120 frames per second.
By leveraging NVIDIA's cloud server technologies the company is able to stream your PC games to virtually any Windows PC, including those with integrated GPUs like the Surface Pro. A similar service has been available on the NVIDIA Shield products for a while now, allowing owners to buy PC games and play them through the cloud to their Android-powered devices.
Right now this is only going to play games you own, but that's OK. If you're into PC gaming and assuming you have a solid wireless connection, it means you can take your collection on the road without the need to have a gaming laptop.
Also new as of CES is Ubisoft U Play support, so any games you've bought there you can also link to the service.
It's possibly a pretty niche offering, but it's nevertheless an incredibly impressive thing. PC gaming continues to grow in popularity, and with a service like GeForce NOW you can be sat downstairs, or at an airport, playing PUBG on your Ultrabook or 2-in-1 PC.
Initially, the beta is limited to North America and Europe, with localizations for the client application in both French and German as well as English. If you're interested, hit the link below to join the waiting list. It's proving popular right now so you'll have to be patient to get in.
