NVIDIA has recently announced on CES 2017 that they will be bringing their service subscription called NVIDIA GeForce Now to PCs. As a result, anyone who has a decent Internet connection will be able to get into PC gaming.

NVIDIA GeForce Now Subscription

NVIDIA?s GeForce Now subscription is previously exclusive to NVIDIA?s own Android-based devices called Shield. NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsung Huang announced the imminent launch of the service during their company?s CES press conference. In addition, Huang demonstrated GeForce Now?s capabilities by playing one of the most graphically demanding games on iMac.

Huang used it to play Square Enix?s Rise of the Tomb Raider using an iMac. For those who are unaware, an iMac is an Apple machine that isn?t capable of running the mentioned game above. However, it is now able to play even the most graphically intensive game, namely Rise of the Tomb Raider thanks to NVIDIA?s GeForce Now.
