NVIDIA is celebrating in a big way today with some rather big upgrades for GeForce NOW in May, with 27 new games hitting the game streaming service, 4K streaming on the PC and Mac, and more.
If you are gaming away on the RTX 3080 membership of GeForce NOW, then you're going to enjoy up to 4K 60FPS gaming from the PC or Mac with native GFN apps. Not just that, but NVIDIA DLSS helps out with 4K streaming performance since it'll tap the dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on RTX GPUs.
NVIDIA says that its RTX 3080 members can "enjoy the benefits of ultra-low latency that rivals native console gaming. They can also enable customized in-game graphics settings like RTX ON, taking games to a cinematic level, and experience the maximized eight-hour play sessions".
