Nvidia Brings GeForce RTX 3080 Power to GeForce Now Game Streaming

From PC Mag: It may still be extremely hard to find a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card, but that doesn't mean you can't use one if you have a fast enough internet connection.

Nvidia has announced a new membership tier for its GeForce Now game-streaming service that provides remote access to the power of a GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card and the rest of a high-end gaming PC.

The GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership is $99.99 for a six-month subscription, and offers users enough PC gaming capabilities to play any GeForce Now-compatible game at up to 1440p120 on PCs and Macs, 4K60 on Nvidia Shield TV devices, and 120Hz action on certain Android devices with compatible screens.

This is a significant bump in power over the service's Priority subscription tier, which can stream games at up to 1080p60 (though both tiers enable RTX graphics processing features like ray tracing). GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership also enables sessions up to eight hours at a time compared with six for Priority membership. GeForce Now also has a free membership tier, but it only supports hour-long play sessions with no RTX.
