Nvidia not only busted out their best with the Big Format Gaming Display, but their showfloor also managed to present everyone with a surprise in the form of GeForce Now.
GeForce Now is a game streaming service for Windows and Mac. When installed, GeForce Now can connect to a cloud service and allow the user to play any game on Steam, GOG, Uplay, or Origin.
If you’re looking to play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds with a non-gaming PC, you’ll be glad to know that GeForce Now supports it. The video below shows that a mere USD200 HP Stream netbook can run Rainbow Six Siege just fine.

The app connects your laptop to one of Nvidia’s virtual PCs with a dedicated GPU and you can easily stream any of favorite games, and even supports cloud save functionality, so you can pick up where you’ve left off. The frame rates and performance are assuredly constant, says Nvidia.
Prices for the service starts at $25 for 20 hours of play on a GTX1060 PC, or 10 hours of play on a GTX1080 PC. Interested users can sign up for early access, but expect to land on a waitlist. Beta will begin this coming March 2018, with a commercial launch the following Spring in North America and Europe. Worldwide availability has not been determined.
