Full Steam Ahead: Valve Supports In-Home Streaming on Latest GeForce CardsAugust 28, 2014
Valve and NVIDIA have just made game streaming better than ever.
Last week, Valve officially released support for hardware encoding on NVIDIA GeForce GPUs in the Steam client. Pair this support with one of our latest GeForce GTX GPUs and you can play remotely from your PC connected to any Steam-enabled system in your home at resolutions up to 1080p at 60 fps.
“We’ve worked closely with NVIDIA to support hardware encoding on GeForce cards with our Steam In-Home Streaming technology, and the result is nothing short of amazing,” said Sam Lantinga, at Valve.
At NVIDIA, we’re all about great gaming experiences. Our goal for game streaming is no different: customers should be able to enjoy the same high-resolution graphics and split-second responsiveness on a remote system as they would directly on a PC.
Our dedicated hardware encoder rapidly encodes each frame with the best required image quality, while keeping lag to a bare minimum. It does all this while providing amazing graphics performance and leaving the CPU available for even the most demanding games.
The result: a great game streaming experience in any room of your house.
