Geforce Now, what do you think?

After going from being Beta, the service of playing through the cloud of Nvidia reaches all audiences. With a good internet connection, it is capable of offering 1080p at 60fps, even offering raytracing.

Here you can find all the minimun requeriments.


A 64-bit version of Windows 7, or newer, is required. Please note we do not support 32-bit versions of Windows.


GeForce NOW requires at least 15Mbps for 720p at 60fps and 25 Mbps for 1080p at 60fps.
You’ll need to use a hardwired Ethernet connection or 5GHz wireless router.


Most built-in or USB keyboards work fine.
We recommend a USB gaming mouse for PC and Mac. Logitech and Razer offer many different options.

  • Sony DualShock 4 controllers (USB wired and Bluetooth)
  • Logitech Gamepad F310/F510/F710
    • Note: you must change the controller to work in (Direct input mode)
    • Note: The nano-receiver must be connected to a USB port that delivers enough power, such as a powered USB hub or an iMac/MacBook USB port.
  • Microsoft Xbox 360 and Xbox One controllers (USB wired)
  • Dual core x86-64 CPU with 2.0GHz or faster
  • 4GB of system memory
  • GPU that at least supports DirectX 11

Nothing terrifying until you get to the part of the GPU and you keep thinking that it has to do the Geforce 600, the Intel HD Graphics 2000. I do not know, but I know that these requirements are poorly detailed because when you put a Geforce 600, They should have detailed a Gerforce 610 to 630, low level things designed especially for laptops. To write Geforce 600 is encompassing up to the GTX series. Has no sense. I have a GTX 660 and it is a million times better than an Intel HD.

Well, it would have been better to write “integrated GPU” as minimun GPU requeriment. The level of CPU would give the minimun GPU integrated.

Of course, many people from MAC will like this system because probably you can play your Windows games in your MAC. The same can happen with Android. These are the great benefited from Geforce Now.

Price? At the moment there is a free subscription with time and connection priority limitations. If you have a Geforce Experience account, you do not need another account, you can access with that one. Nvidia shares accounts among its services.

The payment account with all benefits costs € 5.49 per month. It is not too much, 65.88€ per 12 months. If we think about the requirements to do the same on a PC, I think it’s like send the graphics card through the window. An RTX 2060 costs more than € 300, with that money you can play more than 4 years with Geforce Now and I am sure that in all the PCs of your house because surely the only limitation is an active account at the same time.

The only bad points are the need for a good internet connection, it is not a service that includes the game (it was logical), the game is paid for by you because you can link services like Steam to your Geforce Now account. If I included the games, it would surely be 30€ per month, as minimum. So I prefer an economic service where you are the one who puts the extra cost of the games, this allows you to buy the games according to offers that you would not otherwise have and that you do not have to pay twice for the same. Also if you get tired of the service, you still have your games.

The other bad point is the games catalog, basically they are only current products from well-known distributors, come on, the top20. I do not play any of them. I will not find the Star Wars Empire at War there. It is obvious that they will not add games with possible running problems.

Even so, it seems bright and enough for me to think a lot if it is worthwhile to spend a so money for mounting up a gaming computer. I use the pc for more things, I need a minimum of hardware but many other people do not do this. Neither for hobby, nor for work, they only play with him, so this service can be very, very good.
