Nvidia cancels waitlist for RTX 3080 in cloud service
In October, Nvidia announced a new membership tier for its cloud gaming service, Geforce Now – an RTX 3080 tier that delivers the highest level of performance through access to hard-to-acquire GPU-powered servers. Understandably, the prospect has appealed to many, given that the future looks bleak when it comes to getting a physical RTX 3080 anytime before the end of next year.
While initially GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership was limited to pre-orders for Founders and Priority Members, Nvidia has announced that 3080 memberships will now be available instantly. Buying one now (or a priority tier membership) will even get you Crysis remastered free.
The service, which can run on everyday devices not Equipped with powerful graphics cards, allows you to access most of your games from Steam, Epic and Ubisoft Connect, via the Internet from a dedicated gaming PC located in the cloud.
Malleability – Perhaps the biggest advantage of a GeForce subscription is its versatility. As long as you have an internet connection, you can turn an older Windows or Mac computer into a system capable of running the latest games at up to 1440p resolution with minimal latency. Certainly, to get the sharpest resolution the service is capable of, you will need a PC. To be clear, the service is also available for use on an Android phone or iPhone.
There are certainly tiers for the GeForce Now service as a whole. Membership levels are of three different types: Free, Priority and RTX 3080. Besides the highest gaming experience (resolution up to 1440p and 120 fps on PC, native 1440p or 1600p at 120 FPS on Mac and 4K HDR at 60 FPS on SHIELD TV), the latter level has the longest session duration (eight hours) and of course, exclusive access to RTX 3080 servers.
In addition to making the RTX 3080 subscription accessible to everyone, Nvidia offers offers on its Shield TV and Shield TV Pro packages, which allow you to stream games from your PC to the TV in the living room (or the room in which you keep your TV). As of Monday, Shield TV and Shield TV Pro received a $ 20 discount in select regions.
