Nvidia GeForce Now gets 1440p and 120 FPS in the browser
The weekly Nvidia GeForce Now update is here and it has an interesting purpose. Back-to-school ready, Nvidia is giving its browser-based streaming game a kick in the pants. Perfect for underpowered school computers or to “spice up a boring study session”.
Initially it is limited to Chrome and Edge on PC, but the resolution has been increased to a maximum of 1440p and 120FPS. You must of course be at the RTX 3080 level to have access to the highest resolution and frame rate.
RTX 3080 members can now enhance their browser gameplay at up to 1440p and 120fps. No app installation required – just open a Chrome or Edge browser on PC, go to play.geforcenow.com, select these new resolutions and refresh rates from the Settings menu in GeForce Now, and jump into gaming by seconds, with less friction or downloads.
To enable 1440p and 120 FPS, you just need to open the Settings menu in the left pane. Then locate the Broadcast quality section. Select the Custom checkbox to open options to choose your resolution and frame rate. You’ll also need a decent connection, as you can expect to use up to 19GB per hour on these settings.
Obviously, on Windows and Mac, you can also download the dedicated GeForce Now app to get these features as well. Thanks to this resolution, up to 4K is supported, as well as the 120 FPS option.
This week, new GeForce Now games
No GeForce Now Thursday is complete without new games to play. This week’s list is quite small but includes a new Steam release.
Nvidia GeForce Now is free to try and supports games from your libraries on Steam, Epic, and Ubisoft Connect. Paid tiers start at $50 for six months, while the RTX 3080 tier with access to 4K gaming and up to 120 frame rates costs $100 for six months. Paid users also get priority access to servers.
Any PC, Mac, or mobile device can become a powerful gaming machine with NVIDIA’s cloud gaming platform.
