techno.rentetan.com – GeForce Now now supports 1440p and 120fps game streaming thanks to new custom servers equipped with RTX 3080 GPUs. With the RTX 3080 graphics card, Nvidia is offering its GeForce Now cloud gaming service a major performance increase.

Nvidia is now leveraging one of its most powerful consumer GPUs to give GeForce Now customers with plentiful performance on the company’s game streaming servers, whereas most people are familiar with the RTX 3080 as a powerful (and frequently sold out) GPU used to play PC games.

In fact, Nvidia designed a new kind of server specifically to support the new features in GeForce Now. There is a new graphics card on the market called the SuperPod, and it packs a punch. A dedicated 3080 GPU in the cloud is now available to any GeForce Now client with an RTX 3080 membership. This configuration offers considerable performance improvements over the current GeForce Now subscription tiers.

Nvidia claims that each SuperPod has a staggering 11,477,760 CUDA cores, compared to the 8704 CUDA cores found in a single RTX 3080 GPU. “The most powerful gaming supercomputer ever created,” claims Nvidia of its SuperPod.

A Priority membership to the GeForce Now service had previously promised performance that could go as high as 1080p at 60 frames per second. The RTX 3080 from Nvidia, on the other hand, supports game streaming up to 1440p at 120 frames per second on Mac and PC, or 4K HDR at 60 frames per second with 7.1 sound on Nvidia’s Shield TV devices. In case your phone or tablet has a high refresh rate display, you may also stream games via GeForce Now at 120 frames per second to mobile devices.

As a result of this, Nvidia claims that the latency of GeForce Now game streaming will be reduced to only 60ms, which is comparable to the latency you’d experience on a regular home console. Nvidia claims that the RTX 3080 membership gives seven times the performance of the most popular desktop combination mentioned on Steam’s hardware survey, and 13 times the performance of an M1 MacBook Air when compared to home PCs.

Because of this, GeForce Now will be able to better match the frame rate of your gameplay with the refresh rate of your display, resulting in a more fluid and enjoyable gaming experience.

Nvidia and several of its partners are also building new data centers in countries like Russia, South America, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Japan, and Southeast Asia to help with game streaming.

On a GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership, you may play at 1440p at 120 frames per second with a dedicated 3080 GPU in the cloud for $100 every six-month period, with support for 1440p at 120 frames per second. The RTX 3080 subscription will be restricted to sessions of no more than eight hours for gamers who prefer to binge play.

Starting today, U.S. GeForce Now founders and existing GeForce Now Priority customers will have early access to GeForce Now’s RTX 3080 membership, with general release scheduled for later in November.
