  • im one of the lucky few people who managed to get an rtx 3060 ti at only $150 above MSRP due to me not setting my bot up correctly which i only used to get a single card it was a fight fire with fire kind of deal with those scalpers. and my best advice is. do not sell your old GPU until you have a new one in hand

  • Earlier this year my middle school class found out about GeForce now so we all brought our gaming mice to school and we played fortnite on the cheap school chrome books all day. The games ran perfect 1080p 60fps! Until our English teacher reported the website to the school board for corrupting our minds and got it banned... lol

  • When you are a casual gamer and not that competitive it works pretty well, I use GeForce Now and it works pretty great, it is cool not to download the stuff, when you just want to try a game. Twice someone said to me, oh we could game this, but it takes long to download, so maybe do it tomorrow and I had it already ;) In one month I had one problem with my connection, but also with pretty bad connection it works great, only don't use the best options

  • I don't know what's up with your PS Now. Here in Germany (although the console's browser claims the IP to be in the US), the PS Now service runs probably about the way you described Geforce Now or Stadia. Delay was there and noticeable, but not a huge deal. Depending on the game it was completely negligible (Spider-Man played perfectly fine).

  • I hope Geforce now can come with higher resolution and fps, and ray tracing. Just imagine paying a low price in a month instead of buying an insanely expensive gpu. You can use the money on a good chair, mouse, keyboard and monitor instead!

    BeastgoesbeserkBeastgoesbeserk6 päivää sitten
  • you should give a try at boosteroid, in Europe works really well! I can play even warzone and apex with an average of 15-20 ms of latency. bad thing is that is only 60fps but being able to play it this good at 1080p with rtx and all maxed out on an old dual core laptop is priceless, and is only 9 bucks a month or 50 a year. tried it because my pc is broken but i'm seriously thinking about not buying a new expensive pc, hoping that the technology will improve even more. Per gli italiani va particolarmente bene visto che i server sono a Milano

  • Said it before, but any company with a history of political censorship and privacy violations is NOT getting subscription money from me, especially not in a case like this. I don't want to depend on something that they can just take away because they're intolerant dumbasses chasing the latest shift in the overton window. It better say in the EULA that they will not shut down your service for any reason or they can get f**ked. And before you "it's a private company" me, consider that they take in billions of dollars from foreign governments all the time in exchange for "requests," not to mention the lobbying they do. Hell, Google openly admitted to helping China with their social credit system (used to blacklist and deprive people of basic services like transportation and finance if they've criticized gov't or brought up taboo topics)

  • dude, you cant control shit in Android version of Geforce now. apect ratio will randomly go crazy after updates, you cant see the entire library of games that are supported, you have to select games you dont own in order to get caught in the steam menu to change the button layout on your controller. go with shadow. Nvidia sucks ass.
