NVIDIA made the most amazing announcement at CES 2017. The company said that it’s making its GeForce NOW streaming service available for PC or Mac.

Via GeForce NOW, you will have access to a high-performance GeForce GTX 1080 gaming PC that can run anything at maximum settings and smooth framerates.

So you want to play a resource hungry game, but you have a crappy PC that isn’t up to the task. Until now, you had just two options at your disposal: try to upgrade it, or chuck it out and get a new PC. At CES 2017, NVIDIA introduced a third option: install the game onto a virtual GeForce GTX 1080 gaming PC in the cloud, and stream the game to your crappy PC.

"Today, we're announcing GeForce NOW for Mac and PC, a new cloud gaming service that transforms your Mac or PC into a high-performance gaming PC by connecting them to blazing-fast GeForce GTX 1080 gaming PCs hosted in the cloud," NVIDIA announced on its blog.

"Using our unparalleled cloud gaming technology, and the performance of the world's fastest consumer GPUs, you'll be able to play the latest PC games at exceptional detail levels, with super smooth framerates, for an unrivaled experience that can otherwise only be obtained through a PC system upgrade."

GeForce NOW for PC and Mac
  • Access to a virtual, cloud-based GeForce GTX 1080 GeForce NOW PC.
  • Install up to 1TB of games from game store platforms like Steam, Origin, Uplay, GOG, and Battle.net.
  • Install and play free-to-play titles like League of Legends via the GeForce NOW app.
  • All patching, game configuring and driver updating is handled automatically by the GeForce NOW infrastructure.
  • Save games, achievements and other settings are automatically synchronized with digital game platforms.


Early Access to GeForce Now for PC and Mac begins in March.
