That’s a Wrap: GeForce NOW Celebrates Another Year of High-Performance Cloud Gaming

Before ringing in the new year, GeForce NOW is taking a look back at a 2023 full of top-notch gaming. Explore GeForce NOW’s year in review, which brought more hit games, improved service features and the launch of the Ultimate membership tier.

Plus, GFN Thursday is raising a toast to the GeForce NOW community by delivering more than 40 new games to stream from the cloud.

Wrapping It Up

It’s been an amazing year of cloud gaming. The launch of the Ultimate tier brought high-performance cloud gaming across North America and Europe, streaming from newly rolled out GeForce RTX 4080 SuperPODs.

For the first time in the cloud, members could stream up to 240 frames per second, or 4K 120 fps on the native PC and Mac apps, and experience support for ultrawide resolutions for the smoothest and most immersive gameplay — all thanks to the powerful NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPU architecture.

To prove the power of the cloud, NVIDIA gave gamers the ultimate test of latency on KovaaK’s, a latency-sensitive, first-person-shooter aim trainer.

Gamers competed for top scores on the leaderboard, and the results were staggering — showing a 1.8x improvement in aiming just by playing with an Ultimate membership.

NVIDIA also posed a challenge to Cyberpunk 2077 fans: to play the graphics-intensive game on an unknown system. Players were astonished to discover that they were playing with full ray tracing on a Chromebook with GeForce NOW. NVIDIA even brought the experience to The Game Awards, showing off the power of gaming on a Chromebook with GeForce NOW on a global stage.

With higher-performance streaming came more collaborations with top-quality publishers.

NVIDIA and Microsoft partnership for GeForce NOW
A new window to the cloud.

NVIDIA and Microsoft signed a 10-year partnership this year, bringing hit Xbox PC games and over 100 supported PC Game Pass titles to the cloud, with more to come. Members could stream some of the biggest Xbox PC titles, including the Wolfenstein and Forza Horizon franchises, Starfield, and the Ori and Age of Empires series, across devices at high performance for the first time.

Call of Duty on GeForce NOW
The cloud is calling.

With the Microsoft partnership came the first Activision game in the cloud, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare III. With NVIDIA DLSS 3 and Reflex technologies, Ultimate members can get the highest frame rates and lowest latencies for the smoothest gameplay.

Monster Hunter: World on GeForce NOW
Hear me roar.

Celebrated publisher Capcom also brought to the cloud some of its top games, including Monster Hunter Rise, Monster Hunter: World and Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen.

90+ titles streaming with RTX ON.

The year closed out with a celebration spotlighting  500 NVIDIA RTX-supported games and applications. Over 90 titles with RTX ON are featured on GeForce NOW, easily found on the app’s dedicated RTX ON row, including top games Cyberpunk 2077, Alan Wake II, Far Cry 6, Control and more.

GeForce NOW Stats 2023
