GeForce NOW, Nvidia's cloud gaming service, is now out of beta for LG Smart TVs as announced by the company. We saw the cloud gaming service on selected LG TVs first back in November 2021 when the company partnered with LG to create a Smart TV app which was in beta until now.
TV models that are compatible with Nvidia's cloud gaming service include select 2021 and upwards LG 4K OLED, QNED Mini LED, and NanoCell TV models in 80 markets. If you have a compatible TV, you can head over to the LG Content Store, browse for the game, and hit the download button. You can play games with any console.
A new update for the GeForce NOW app also delivers a resolution scaling option that includes an AI-powered option for members using NVIDIA GPUs or a SHIELD TV device. Using this feature, gamers having bandwidth limitations can have sharper graphics that match the native resolution of their monitor.
According to Nvidia, the scaling options has three modes:
This mode is enabled by default. It uses a bilinear filter to scale content and uses the least amount of system resources. It's available on all devices that support the native PC and macOS GeForce NOW apps.
This mode uses a Lanczos filter to scale content, which results in better image quality when compared to standard mode. Enhanced mode uses more system resources, which could result in additional latency depending on your device's specifications.
This mode is only available for PC users with select NVIDIA GPUs or on NVIDIA SHIELD TV. First introduced on NVIDIA SHIELD TV, AI-enhanced mode leverages the computational power of the GPU to pass content through a trained neural network model. This produces incredible sharpness and enhanced details that no traditional scaler can recreate. AI-enhanced mode is available only for upscaling content.
There are a handful of new games that are coming to the streaming service this week. These are Mortal Online 2, Daemon X Machina, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, Tropico 6, and Assassin's Creed III Deluxe Edition.
