After the downfall of OnLive and the incredibly expensive PlayStation Now service, the players have pretty much lost all their hope that they will soon be able to stream games from the cloud without a single worry. But many companies have not yet lost interest in providing cloud gaming services, including the largest graphics card manufacturer, Nvidia. A few years ago, the company announced the GeForce NOW service and tested it on a Mac platform. Now it is time for the same to happen with Windows, or better to say, the PC gamers.
GeForce NOW is designed to be the most capable cloud streaming service. This means that Nvidia offers you the ability to play games on your laptop or PC at maximum settings at 1080p resolution up to 120 frames per second and all of that with minimum latency that they have developed with their own research and technology, and optimized for individual games in the offer.
For now, by using GeForce NOW services one can play around one hundred popular PC games including Rainbow Six Siege, PUBG, Rocket League, Overwatch, Fortune, Minecraft, Hearthstone and many others. The prerequisite for pleasant gaming is that you have an Internet connection speed of at least 25 Mbps and a recommended 50 Mbps or higher, an Ethernet router or a wireless 5 GHz router. You also need Intel i3 with 3.1 GHz, 4GB of RAM and a GeForce 600 or Radeon HD 3000 graphics card.
You can currently sign up for the beta version here and the only thing left for you is to wait for a place to open up for you to try out the service. This is usually the only way to get the free access because you will have to pay for it later. In beta, you can only access the games you already have on Steam, Battle.net and other services, or those that are in F2P model.
