Geforce Now, which is NVIDIA’s cloud-based game streaming service allowing you to play games over your internet has announced to launch support for gaming at 120Hz on select Android devices.
Just last year, GeForce Now got support for RTX 3080 GPUs enabling GeForce Now users to game at high refresh rates without any input delay. Have an outdated PC but want to play the latest triple A titles? You can use GeForce now to satisfy your needs.
Technically this cloud service from NVIDIA is free, however, you can only play for ‘1 hour long’ sessions with the free version. GeForce NOW offers three membership options including Priority and GeForce NOW RTX 3080 for an upgraded experience.
Just recently, NVIDIA added support for 120Hz gaming via the cloud on Android smart phones provided the phone supports 120Hz. Sadly, the iOS community will have to wait as no official announcement has been made regarding the support of 120Hz gaming on iPhones. Following is the list of all the supported Android devices :
- Samsung Galaxy S22/+/Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy S21/+/Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3
- Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3
- Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy S20 FE
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S8/+/Ultra
- Samsung Galaxy Tab S7/+
- Asus ROG 5
- Google Pixel 6 Pro
- OnePlus 9 Pro
- Xiaomi Mi 11
- Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra
It is to be noted that high speed internet will be needed as GeForce NOW requires at least 35Mbps for streaming up to 1440p or 1600p at 120 FPS. The games you choose to play must already be purchased in your account (On any major launcher such as Steam, Epic Games or Origin).
