Until now, GeForce NOW RTX 3080 users could only enjoy 4K resolutions when using an NVIDIA Shield device connected, of course, to a TV that supports this resolution. However, and hand in hand with the news that the company brings us every Thursday regarding its cloud gaming service, this week there has been an announcement that, without a doubt, It will be a great joy for users of the RTX 3080 level who mainly use the PC to play.
And yes, as you can read in the headline, the GeForce NOW client software (not the web interface) anda offers top-of-the-range users the ability to stream in 4K resolutionso that they can get the most out of their monitor, now that PC screens with this level of resolution have already begun to become popular and it is increasingly common to find people, mainly gamers but also content creators and editors, who have recently made this leap.
To deliver 4K quality with adequate performance, GeForce NOW relies on its DLSS rescaling technologywhich, as you know, also allows, thanks to Game Ready drivers, to optimize the use of PC resources to offer a significant jump in image quality without having to carry out hardware updates.
Although the arrival of 4K resolution on the Windows client has been a surprise, it is even more so that this possibility has also reached macOS users. It doesn’t seem like a coincidence that this happened just a week after NVIDIA released its GeForce NOW client specifically for Apple computers with the M1 chip. It seems quite likely that they were waiting to complete that rollout successfully, then roll out this new feature to RTX 3080 subscribers.
