Upgrade Roll Call

GeForce NOW Ultimate SuperPOD Rollout
Order up! Servers are now live in Chicago and Montreal.

The RTX 4080 SuperPODs have been rolling out around the world for a couple months now, so it’s time to check in with a RTX 4080 roll call.

Chicago and Montreal bring the number of cities on the server update map to 10, joining Ashburn, Dallas, Los Angeles and San Jose in the U.S., and Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London and Paris in Europe. Now past it’s halfway point, the rollout is expected to be completed by mid-year.

Here’s a few reasons to upgrade:

  • NVIDIA DLSS 3 technology is enabled for AI-powered performance boosts on supported games like HITMAN World of Assassination and Marvel’s Midnight Suns. This means 4K streaming from the cloud results in the smoothest game play at up to 120 frames per second, even when settings are cranked to the max.
  • NVIDIA Reflex delivers ultra-low latency. Paired with DLSS 3, the technology enables Ultimate members to stream games like Rainbow Six Siege and Apex Legends at up to 240 fps on PCs and Macs, with as low as 35 milliseconds of total latency for a streaming experience that feels nearly indistinguishable from being on a local desktop.
  • Ultrawide resolutions are supported for the first time ever from the cloud, giving Ultimate members the most immersive game play in No Man’s Sky, Cyberpunk 2077 and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.

Ultimate members in and around the 10 cities on the map are streaming with new performance today, and can take full advantage of these RTX technologies in the cloud. Level up to next-generation cloud streaming today for beyond-fast gaming.

Spring Forward With New Games

Rainbow Six Siege Season 1 Year 8 on GeForce NOW
“Brava will do what’s needed. Even when it requires sacrifice.”

Operation Commanding Force is the newest season of Year 8 for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, now available for members to stream. The update brings a new attacker named Brava, equipped with the Kludge Drone, a gadget that can disrupt enemy electronics devices and even take over some of them to turn the tides of battle.
