GeForce Now upscales in-browser streaming to 1440p 120fps

(Pocket-lint) – Nvidia’s GeForce Now cloud gaming platform now offers up to 1440p 120fps playback via a Chrome or Edge browser running on a PC.

This means that depending on your subscription level, you can get a top-notch PC gaming experience using almost any PC, regardless of its own specifications.

You’ll need to be a member of Nvidia’s highest stream tier, the RTX 3080, but all you have to do to make it work is access the settings menu when you’re at (in the three “hamburger” bars of the left). -hand side) and select the desired resolution and frame rate through the custom options in “streaming quality”.

RTX 3080 members also get ray tracing support and up to eight hours of continuous playtime.

Higher resolution streaming is also available on other devices, including Android, with compatible phones also offering 120 fps (120 Hz).

We haven’t been able to test Chrome Boost ourselves yet, however, as we’re GeForce Now Founders, the equivalent of Priority, and so we’re locked to 1080p and 60fps when using the service.

Nvidia also announced that support for six new games has been added to the platform, these include Pheonix Point and the newly released Thymesia.
