Nvidia’s GeForce Now recreation streaming service is getting an RTX 3080-themed improve in Europe. Nvidia introduced the brand new membership tier in October, and it’s already accessible within the US. However, as of at the moment, avid gamers in Europe can begin streaming from the corporate’s new higher-performance servers, which provide improved resolutions, body charges, and fewer latency.

The RTX 3080 membership tier provides as much as 1440p / 120fps gameplay by means of PC and Mac, or as much as 4K HDR / 60fps when streamed to an Nvidia Protect TV. That’s up from 1080p at 60fps with the present Precedence tier. Session lengths also can prolong as much as eight hours lengthy somewhat than six, and Nvidia additionally says the tier provides decrease latency. The large tradeoff is worth, with the brand new tier costing £89.89 / $99.99 for a six-month subscription within the UK, up from £44.99 / $49.99 for six months of the Precedence tier. However in our testing the outcomes are spectacular.

I ought to observe that regardless of its title, the RTX 3080 membership tier doesn’t stream from servers actually outfitted with retail RTX 3080 playing cards. As a substitute, it’s an Ampere GA102 chip on a server with an eight-core AMD Threadripper CPU, 28GB of DDR4 reminiscence, and a Gen4 SSD. It’s a {hardware} mixture that Nvidia says provides 35 teraflops of GPU efficiency, round thrice what an Xbox Sequence X is able to and truly extra consistent with the efficiency of an RTX 3090.

Nvidia is beginning the brand new tier’s rollout for individuals who’ve preordered the membership tier in Europe and says that “rollouts for accounts will continue until all requests have been fulfilled.” It’s accepting new orders “pending availability.” In addition to the enlargement of the membership tier to Europe, Nvidia can also be asserting the 20 video games which can be coming to its service this month, which embody indie darling Untitled Goose Recreation.
