Nvidia's GeForce Now eco system.

Refresh rate is quickly surpassing resolution as the key spec for graphical quality, and Nvidia is the second to market with a 120Hz option -- following hot on the heels of Xbox Game Pass Cloud.

The new plan provides access to servers powered by an Nvidia RTX 3080, which you can fully utilize with features like RTX ray tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). Pre-orders begin Thursday, October 21, for Founders and Priority GeForce Now members in North America and Western Europe, and if Nvidia has enough capacity, the plan will be available to everyone the following week.
