GeForce Now, Nvidia’s cloud gaming service that promises to enable PC gaming on low-end hardware, is now in open beta testing on the PC. The free software is currently capable of running more than 160 games at maximum visual settings, at up to 120 fps.
The GeForce Now PC hardware requirements are:
- Intel Core i3 CPU at 3.1GHz
- 4GB RAM
- DX9 Capable GPU
It also supports Mac hardware running MacOS 10.10 or higher.
The internet connection requirements though are quite considerable.
The minimum connection requirement is 25Mbps, and the recommendation is 50Mbps or higher. You’ll also need a hardwired ethernet connection or a 5GHz wireless router.
Access to the beta is limited to North America and Europe, and there’s a waiting list of indeterminate length to get in. For now though, you can submit your interest in the beta at Nvidia.com
