GeForce Now Enables 1600P 120FPS Cloud Gaming For Google Chrome
Updated: Nov 3, 2022
NVIDIA is now allowing its GeForce Now users to play games in 1600P in the Google Chrome browser. This is a slight upgrade over the 1440P resolution available previously, and of course, you'll be getting 120FPS support as well. However, you'll need the top-tier GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership to get access.
Google's New Gaming Chromebooks and Geforce Now
Google recently announced that they'll be closing down Stadia by January 2023, and later on, unveiled the world's first Gaming Chromebooks with support for Geforce Now, Xbox Cloud Gaming, and Amazon Luna.
The Acer Chromebook 516 GE, and the Lenovo Ideapad 5i Gaming Chromebook 16" come with 1600P (2560x1600, 16:10) 120Hz displays while the ASUS Chromebook Vibe CX55 Flip comes with a 1080P (1920x1080, 16:9) 144Hz display.
These laptops come with 3 months of free GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership, so anyone buying the Gaming Chromebooks can enjoy top-notch gaming without spending a boatload of money. Well, that is at least for the first three months, and if you wish to continue your membership, you'll have to subscribe to the service.
GeForce Now 1600P 120FPS Gaming Is Available For Chrome Browsers on All Platforms
Just because NVIDIA launched the 1600P gaming tier with the new Gaming Chromebooks, doesn't mean that it's only limited to ChromeOS. Windows and macOS laptops featuring newer 16:10 displays with a resolution of 2560x1600 (or higher) and a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher can take advantage of this feature as well on the Chrome Browser.
If you are interested, you can enjoy 1600P 120Hz gaming by subscribing to the GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership for $19.99 a month. It also enables 1440P 120FPS gaming for 16:9 displays and 4K 60FPS HDR gaming on the NVIDIA SHIELD TV.
