Interest in Nvidia's Cloud Gaming Service, GeForce Now, Goes Up During the Pandemic

From PC Mag: The pandemic is helping to drive more gamers to try out Nvidia’s cloud gaming service, GeForce Now.

On Thursday, Nvidia indicated that GeForce Now has two million users, up from over one million back in mid-February, when the cloud gaming service moved out of a public beta to become available to all.

“Just launching in February, GFN has added two million users around the world with both sign-ups and gameplay boosted by stay at home measures,” said the company’s chief financial officer Colette Kress during an earnings call.

Nvidia launched the service as a way for gamers to enjoy PC titles, without the need to own the expensive hardware. It works by letting you stream the games from an Nvidia server on to your Android, Mac or Windows device. The main requirement is a 15 Mbps or higher internet connection.
