GFN Thursday Caught in 4K: 27 Games Arriving on GeForce NOW in May, Alongside 4K Streaming to PC and Mac Apps
Enjoy the finer things in life. May is looking pixel perfect for GeForce NOW gamers.
RTX 3080 members can now take their games to the next level, streaming at 4K resolution on the GeForce NOW PC and Mac native apps — joining 4K support in the living room with SHIELD TV.
There’s also a list of 10 titles ready to play today, led by Star Wars Battlefront II, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Star Wars: Squadrons — all part of the 27 total games joining the GeForce NOW library in May.
Play in 4K Today
GeForce NOW is always upgrading. As of today, RTX 3080 members playing from the PC and Mac native apps can stream at 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.
4K streaming gets a boost by NVIDIA DLSS, groundbreaking AI rendering technology that increases graphics performance using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on RTX GPUs. DLSS taps into the power of a deep learning neural network to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images for games.
RTX 3080 members enjoy the benefits of ultra-low latency that rivals native console gaming. They can also enable customized in-game graphics settings like RTX ON, taking games to a cinematic level, and experience the maximized eight-hour play sessions.
On top of this, GeForce NOW is leveling up mobile gamers with support for more 120Hz devices capable of streaming at 120 FPS with RTX 3080 memberships. Newly supported devices include the Samsung Galaxy S22 and S22 Ultra, Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3, and OnePlus 9 Pro.
Visit our RTX 3080 setup guides for more information on 4K resolution on PC and macOS, and check out all of the new 120Hz Android devices.
