If you’ve been dying to upgrade your PC gaming experience but have struggled to find the parts you need or find the room in your budget for frequent part upgrades, NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW service provides an alternate approach to PC gaming. 

Through its cloud gaming technology, the GeForce NOW service is able to turn just about any device you use into a powerful PC gaming system. And, a new tier offers none other than the mighty RTX 3080 to experience 1440p at 120 FPS with up to 4K HDR gaming on NVIDIA SHIELD TV. Here are just a few reasons you should try it.

Easy access to RTX 3080 

NVIDIA’s powerful graphics card is hard to get your hands on. With NVIDIA GeForce NOW RTX 3080, you can access a gaming system in the cloud with the beastly GPU on board in less time than it would take to unbox and install a new graphics card on a local PC. $99 for six months of GeForce NOW RTX 3080 is far cheaper than by any other means.

No hardware upgrades needed

It can be expensive to build a gaming PC in the short term and over time, especially with upgrades. The beauty of GeForce NOW is the massively powerful gaming rig in the cloud meaning premium PC gaming is possible on just about any device.  We’re talking photorealistic ray tracing even on budget smartphones or long forgotten laptops.  

Your games, your way

NVIDIA doesn’t have its own game store within GeForce NOW. You don’t need to purchase PC games you already own a second time. You can play your Stream, Uplay, Epic Games Store, and GOG.com game libraries on GeForce NOW. That means you’ve got plenty of paid and even free titles ready to play on day one. Better yet, to wait for games to download or update, they’re in the cloud.

All that power wherever you go

A gaming PC is great when you’re at home, but when you’re on the go, you’re out of luck. With GeForce NOW you can get all the power of a beastly gaming PC whether you’re at home, on your back porch, waiting for a flight in the airport, or stuck at the DMV. As long as you have a good internet connection, you can enjoy the power of an advanced gaming PC on even your portable devices.

You can try it for free

If you want to see if GeForce NOW is right for you, try the service completely for free. It'll give you the same game library access and 90+ free-to-play games. Instant access to servers, longer play sessions, and ray-traced graphics require a GeForce NOW Priority or  RTX 3080 membership.

Check out GeForce NOW for yourself and see if cloud gaming is for you. If you like it, you can sign up for a Priority membership or pre-order the new RTX 3080 plan, which has limited availability. You can also stay tuned to GFN Thursdays for all the latest news and updates on GeForce NOW.
