Nvidia has announced a premium third tier of membership for its cloud streaming service, GeForce Now. With the RTX 3080 membership, for $99 every six months, subscribers will have effective access to their own virtual GeForce RTX 3080 gaming PC. This means you can take a low-spec desktop or work laptop and turn it into a high-end gaming PC via the cloud. 
 
Powering these virtual machines are Nvidia's new supercomputers called the GeForce Now Superpod. They match AMD Threadripper CPUs with Nvidia Ampere GPUs and these technical beasts can deliver 39,200 Teraflops, 11,477,760 CUDA Cores, and 8,960 CPU Cores each. Your membership reserves a chunk of those cores for your virtual PC, which will then stream your games directly to practically any one of your existing devices. According to Nvidia, this service can deliver up to 120 fps (so long as your display supports at least 120Hz), and the super low latency of 56ms. If it rings true in the final live analysis, that makes GeForce Now nearly four times as fast as xCloud and, even more suprising, about two-thirds the latency of gaming on an Xbox Series X at 60 fps. 
 
That's a game-streaming service promising to deliver lower latency, over an internet connection, than playing on a physically connected console. Of course, your mileage will vary depending on your internet connection and geographically how far you are from one of its new Superpod servers. Nvidia is using Adaptive Sync to ensure these lower latency streams, and it's almost directly analogous to the feature used on PCs to ensure the GPU and monitor synchronize to ensure a smooth delivery of images. Here Adaptive Sync synchronizes the frame output of the server to the frame delivery of the screen connected to the end client. 
 
The result is low latency, and reduced stutter, because it's eliminating dropped and repeated frames.
 
The RTX 3080 membership will cost $99.99 (£89.99) every six months, and will give you exclusive access to the RTX 3080 servers, ray-tracing, and supports up to 1440p resolutions at 120 fps. Shield TV users will also get a boost in performance with 4K HDR support (at 60 fps) finally making its way to the streaming device. 
 
If you only access GeForce Now on a browser, this membership supports Chome, Safari, and Edge.
 
NVIDIA is really working hard to promote its GeForce Now gaming platform.

    I am wondering what the bandwidth requirements will be as well as how much data it will take. I could see 1440p streaming at 120fps could really hit data usage limits that some ISP have.

    Use an Associates Code & SAVE 5% - 10% on your purchase. Just click on the associates banner to save, or enter the associates code at checkout on your next purchase. If you choose to use my code I want to personally say "Thank You" for using it.

    fiber & distance to the server will give people advantages

    Given the GPU shortage I wouldn’t mind paying for this if it had ultra wide support

    Something seems wrong with those numbers. It just doesn't make sense for a console to be that bad, or for this to be that good.
