Why can’t those pricks that mine crypto use this instead of graphics cards then we would all be happy they don’t need video quality for mining just crypto they also don’t need a low latency so I feel like there is no reason why they shouldn’t do this maybe like waiting is not that benafitial but i feel like we can then all do what we want whitout having to ever have this problem again

Far more helpful would have been a comparison of the screen action of an APU and a regular graphics card. For most people, the AMD Ryzen 3400G will meet graphics demands with no complaint, but with such a comparison, we could see at least how far short (if at all) the R53400g fell from expectations.

i think getting a gpu is better than wasting your internet

Its a no brainer I have GeForce Now ( i got lucky I have a founder account so I pay $32cnd$ for 6 month so its $4.33US per month) and its a no brainer, u will always have a system even if you are using a $50 laptop with a good network connection. The downside is, some popular game, like blizzard games cannot be play. Also I played a lot of Rift and my account is not with Steam. So I can't play with my main account on GeForce Now because of that For "performance. I played multiple games needing aiming and I havn't notice any difference in GTA5, WatchDog, Farcry 5, CS, etc.

For some games, this isn't an option. I play WoW and their license is against cloud gaming. SO is there another alternative, that won't break the bank and which won't make scalpers rich? Yes there is. Apple. I got a Mac mini M1 on Amazon for 750 new. It runs WoW great at 100Hz (3440x1440 high settings, goes ultra in 1080p), as well as some other titles such as PoE and Eve online (via crossover). For now, this is the best alternative if you play those games, plus you own the computer.

im one of the lucky few people who managed to get an rtx 3060 ti at only $150 above MSRP due to me not setting my bot up correctly which i only used to get a single card it was a fight fire with fire kind of deal with those scalpers. and my best advice is. do not sell your old GPU until you have a new one in hand

Earlier this year my middle school class found out about GeForce now so we all brought our gaming mice to school and we played fortnite on the cheap school chrome books all day. The games ran perfect 1080p 60fps! Until our English teacher reported the website to the school board for corrupting our minds and got it banned... lol

When you are a casual gamer and not that competitive it works pretty well, I use GeForce Now and it works pretty great, it is cool not to download the stuff, when you just want to try a game. Twice someone said to me, oh we could game this, but it takes long to download, so maybe do it tomorrow and I had it already ;) In one month I had one problem with my connection, but also with pretty bad connection it works great, only don't use the best options

I don't know what's up with your PS Now. Here in Germany (although the console's browser claims the IP to be in the US), the PS Now service runs probably about the way you described Geforce Now or Stadia. Delay was there and noticeable, but not a huge deal. Depending on the game it was completely negligible (Spider-Man played perfectly fine).

Cloud gaming is not worth it! Our internet is not ready and these companies also are not ready to meet gamers expectations. Fuck casual gaming, even as a casual it's not worth it. Cloud gaming should just for now and spend that money making the current systems better

I hope Geforce now can come with higher resolution and fps, and ray tracing. Just imagine paying a low price in a month instead of buying an insanely expensive gpu. You can use the money on a good chair, mouse, keyboard and monitor instead!
Federico 12 days ago
you should give a try at boosteroid, in Europe works really well! I can play even warzone and apex with an average of 15-20 ms of latency. bad thing is that is only 60fps but being able to play it this good at 1080p with rtx and all maxed out on an old dual core laptop is priceless, and is only 9 bucks a month or 50 a year. tried it because my pc is broken but i'm seriously thinking about not buying a new expensive pc, hoping that the technology will improve even more. Per gli italiani va particolarmente bene visto che i server sono a Milano

end of the day having a physical console or pc give us a best experience for gaming...cloud base gaming's are not perfect right now as you can see Even with a very good internet connection linus have they have some problem with games...but as you know most gamers in the world doesn't have a good internet connection for cloud gaming...the best option right now for gaming is a physical gaming devices...
