Gaming Platform Wars | How to try 4K cloud gaming on your Mac or PC with Nvidia GeForce Now



Nvidia has upped the ante in the cloud gaming platform wars by expanding 4K game streaming from Nvidia’s own Shield TV device to now Macs and Windows PCs. If you have one of Apple’s new M1 series chips powering your Mac, Nvidia has you covered with an updated version of the app.

Additionally, Nvidia is expanding its 120Hz 1080p high-refresh rate mode to Samsung’s flagship phones like the recently released Galaxy S22 series and Galaxy Z Fold and Z Flip. While many gamers traditionally utilize 1080p and 1440p displays, now that 4K resolution at 60 frames-per-second (FPS) is supported, gamers have a new reason to upgrade their displays. Keep in mind, a 4K stream uses way more data than a 1080 or 1440p stream while also offering 120Hz refresh-rate.
