Smooth Operator: GeForce NOW Recommended Routers Optimize Cloud Gaming Experience

by Andrew Fear

Great moments are born from great opportunity. And when you’re closing in on that elusive Victory Royale, nothing is worse than when your baby brother starts streaming a movie that brings your cloud gaming to a screeching halt.

That’s where GeForce NOW recommended routers come in.

The GeForce NOW game-streaming service has transformed where and how you can enjoy your favorite high-performance games. We’ve rolled out enhancements during its beta period to improve the quality of service from our data centers to your home.

With our recommended routers, in-home network congestion becomes a thing of the past, helping to keep your gameplay silky smooth.

The latest generation of routers allows you to configure settings to prioritize GeForce NOW before all other data. But we wanted to make it even easier. Recommended routers are certified as factory-enabled with a GeForce NOW quality of service (QoS) profile. It’s automatically enabled when you’re gaming with GeForce NOW.

We’re working closely with ASUS, D-LINK, Netgear, Razer, TP-Link, Ubiquiti Networks and other router manufacturers to build GeForce NOW recommended routers. They’re committed to building best-in-class cloud gaming routers — just as we’re committed to delivering best-in-class gaming experiences.

GeForce NOW recommended routers are available in the U.S. and Canada now, starting with Amplifi HD Gamer’s Edition by Ubiquiti Networks. Look for firmware updates for routers already available, as well as new routers in more regions, early next year.
