    That's a big draw for me as well. The fact that a lot of these games are linked to Steam means savegames carry over so I can play locally on my powerful desktop then seamlessly switch over to GeForce Now on my ultrabook.

    yeah that was one thing i liked when I was using the beta... I could play like 40 games and not have more than 100mb of games installed on my local drive. witcher is what 50gb and when your ultrabook has a 256gb ssd it's not exactly a fair proposistion.

    I have had this 1060 laptop for like 12 days and i can return it....so i called and I can swap it out with cash for a 2070 gp leopard pro laptop but as of now i dont think i will...1060 is more than enough for the million older games i own and have not played and with newer games geforce now is good enough now to bypass the whole heavy and thick laptop

    so after a little testing it seems alot snappier vs a few months back...but the graphics and resolution look 900p this is confirmed it does not look 1080p and although the difference is minor its noticeable to the trained eye...if you want to game at 4k this is not for you....however if all you have is an old laptop or an ultrabook this is a slick option

    Just perfect timing. Shortage of graphics cards, Increased prices and mining boom. Yeah, just perfect.

    Nvidia warned that the $5 “Founders” subscriptions to its stellar GeForce Now game streaming service would only exist for a limited time, and on Thursday the company kept its promise.

    Nvidia today announced that it's replaced the Founders membership option for GeForce Now, which offered various benefits over the free tier in exchange for $4.99 per month, with a Priority membership that raises the price to $9.99 per month.
