GeForce Now is Nvidia’s entry in the cloud gaming market. It has now exited beta with a free and premium membership and it seems a lot better than Google’s Stadia.
If it’s your first time hearing about it, GeForce Now is similar to Stadia in the fact that you use it to stream games to your devices through cloud tech. What makes it better than Stadia is how different it is.
The first and most obvious difference is that GeForce Now has a free option and a premium option. The premium is also a lot cheaper at $4.99 a month. The most important part is that you play the games you already have, you don’t have to buy games again just to stream them.
The difference between the free and premium options is RTX support, session lengths (to keep the servers from getting overloaded, users get a set amount of time of access, then once it runs out, they either reconnect or wait in queue), priority access.
During the beta, 300,000 users used the service and streamed more than 70 million hours on GeForce Now. Nvidia is now ready to make it available to even more people with promises of high FPS and low latency.
The best part is, you can integrate your own library of games and play those games. So if this sounds better than Stadia, you can check it out, it won't cost anything.
