NVIDIA has announced the GeForce Now RTX 3080. It is the next-generation cloud gaming platform with “desktop-class latency” at 1440p and up to 120 fps on PC and Mac. The service is powered by the GeForce Now SuperPod. It is a new gaming supercomputer that costs twice as much as the current Priority tier.
According to NVIDIA, the SuperPod is “the most powerful gaming supercomputer ever built,”. It features 39,200 TFLOPS, 11,477,760 CUDA Cores, and 8,960 CPU Cores. NVIDIA claims it will deliver 35 TFLOPs or three times the performance of the Xbox Series X. It is about similar to a PC with an 8-core CPU, 28GB of DDR4-3200 RAM, and a PCI-GEN4 SSD.
Hence, the GeForce Now RTX 3080 can run games at 1440p and 120fps; but NVIDIA didn’t specify the refresh rate. It will also enable 120 frames per second on mobile devices, “enabling next-gen 120Hz displays,” according to the company. The GeForce Now Priority tier, on the other hand, is limited to 1080p at 60 frames per second, with adaptive VSync included in the most recent version.

It also claims to have a “click-to-pixel” latency of 56 milliseconds, reportedly outperforming competing services and even local, dedicated PCs, thanks to methods like adaptive sync, which decreases buffering. This is predicated on a 15-millisecond round trip delay (RTD) to the GeForce Now data center. Regardless of NVIDIA’s claims, it’s a noticeable speed boost over the current GeForce Priority tier, whether on a mobile device or a PC.
However, there is a cost associated with that speed. The GeForce Now premium tier began at $50 a year and has just been increased to $100, which is already a significant investment. The RTX 3080 tier, on the other hand, is $100 for six months. In any case, if it lives up to the hype, it’ll be less expensive than buying a new PC.
