GeForce NOW Update Finally Brings 1440p 120fps Gameplay on Chrome
And also on the Edge browser
Competition in the cloud gaming space has grown quite a bit in the last few years, with the arrival of heavyweights like Microsoft and Google. Nvidia too, is a big competitor in the space with its GeForce Now cloud gaming service. What’s more, the company recently announced support for higher resolution gameplay and frame rates for GeForce Now on browsers, like Chrome and Edge.
GeForce Now offers three tiers of subscriptions, starting with Free and Priority. The most premium subscription is the RTX 3080 tier, where users get access to more powerful hardware on the server side. The recent upgrade allows gameplay at up to 1440p and 120 frames per second from the browser itself. Unfortunately it’s only reserved for RTX 3080 tier members. To be clear, GeForce Now was one of the first cloud gaming services to offer 1440p and 120 fps gameplay, but that was only through a dedicated app. With the recent update, this option is now available on browsers too.
As the picture above shows, the QHD and 120 fps options are now available on the browser. For RTX 3080 tier members, you can visit this link here on your browser to enable the settings.
As part of GFN Thursday, Nvidia also announced a new list of games arriving on the GeForce Now platform in the coming week.
