    Cloud Gaming - GeForce Now, Shadow Play, etc.

    So I registered for GeForce Now for free account to try and test how their cloud gaming is.

    Right now, Nvidia is offering free membership with 1 hour continuous gaming.
    You can also upgrade to their current promo of $4.99/mo 1 yr subs with free 1st 90 days for Founder Edition with:
    - Priority Access
    - Extended Session Length
    - RTX On
    - Free 90 days intro period

    I have a 100/100 MBPS connection from Fios and so far I am impressed with the outcome. I played on my HP Spectre 360 13" 2in1 just to test it.
    There are some things to improve but below are some of my comments:
    • FPS I'm getting for 1080P 60Hz streaming, balance settings is about 175-200 fps playing MW in Shipment. Its decent considering shipment is a small map and lots of things happening.
    • You can change the settings to competitive or quality if you dont want balance.
    • This game didn't run on the same laptop when installed directly since there is no dedicated GPU.
    • I can't change the max refresh rate. The free version is limited to 60Hz. But the paid one goes up to 120Hz.
    • Tried 1440P rendering and I get 90-120 fps.
    • I'm getting server latency on both 1080 and 1440P of about 7-10 ms.
    • There are still some stuttering due to dip in connection but I'm thinking its because the game is still downloading shaders during the time that I'm playing.
    • I didnt have to install all the 60GB(?) files of the game as its pre-installed in their server. All I had to do is login to my bnet account in the cloud.

    You all can try the free version. I was hoping Shadowplay have the same free version so we can try it. I think GeForce now only works for games unlike Shadowplay where you can use it as your personal PC and use other apps. I'm thinking of upgrading to Founders now. $45 of cloud gaming for a year (since 1st 90 days is free) is not bad based on the above. What do you guys think?

    Tried geforce now beta on my nvidia shield and I was really impressed, it worked fine. Whatever latency there was didnt bother me for some platform game I was playing. I think for most casual gamers like me they will not be bothered by the latency. Cloud gaming definitely has a future. The biggest road block besides convincing people to subscribe is the data caps from ISPs.

    1 hour continuous gaming.......? yikes. Didn't they also just lose the battle.net library only a few short weeks after official launch?

    One hour on free account. Unlimited on the paid account. You can actually just disconnect and log in again and you get another hour lol.
    And yes, they lost all activition/bliz games due to what they said as misunderstanding in their beta contract. I hope they get the games back since MW and Classic are the only games I'm playing now. Well I only intend to use their service when I'm away anyway.

    Don't worry, later on down the road you'll be able to pay an additional $9.99/mo for unlimited game streaming.
    And $9.99/mo for unlimited video streaming.
    And $9.99/mo for unlimited general surfing.

    Eventually that's what these fukers are going to do to us if you want unlimited data to certain things without throttling at a specific set cap. They'll make +$ packages for everything you do online.
