Nvidia GeForce NOW service sets new milestones after 2020 success

Nvidia GeForce NOW has new offerings for its growing customer base after a year of figuring out the best formula for cloud gaming success.

Cloud gaming is one of the fastest-growing segments in the gaming industry. It provides unprecedented access for gamers to play anytime and anywhere. In fact, there are several cloud gaming platforms out there.

However, only a few provide a true gaming experience based on gamers’ reviews. One of those is GeForce NOW. According to reviewers, GFN has been one of the most consistent in delivering an impeccable gaming experience. This is notwithstanding the lack of fanfare around the platform.

Nvidia GeForce NOW offers new membership tiers for 2021

According to Nvidia, GeForce NOW is nearing up to ten million users globally. It is set to surpass this figure as it will open up new markets soon. Its press release indicates that Nvidia will be partnering with local game companies in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Australia.

Last year, Nvidia officially broke loose of its beta version and offered a limited Founders Membership tier. It came in very cheap at just US$ 4.99 per month. The offering is now unavailable as Nvidia started with new bracketing for memberships.

Nvidia calls the new bracket Priority Membership which comes at $9.99 per month. An annual package is also available at $99.99. This package is effectively cheaper because of the bundling price of just $8.33 per month.

The Free membership tier is still available for those who would still like to explore the offerings of GFN. As for the users who availed of the Founder membership, Nvidia sends its gratitude by developing the Founders for Life benefit. It is essentially a promise that the monthly rate of just $4.99 will be available so long as the member is in good standing.

Taking GFN to the next level

Year two of the GeForce Now platform is going to be bigger.  2.0.28 update will roll out to users worldwide in about a week. The main thrust of this patch is an overall better streaming experience in gaming.

Among the updates that will roll out include the unique adaptive Vsync technology. Nvidia said,

“The feature synchronizes frame rates at 60 or 59.94 Hz server-side to match the display client-side, reducing stutter and latency on supported games. A new adaptive de-jitter technology will enable us to increase bit rates for improved quality over choppy networks, too.”

Moreover, Nvidia aims to cut the loading times of games in half by promoting account linking for key games on the platform.
