Cloud gaming: the Nvidia GeForce Now RTX 3080 subscription now available on a montly basis
11 March 2022
Three months after its release, the Nvidia GeForce Now RTX 3080 subscription plan is getting a little more accessible. Not because of a price drop, but thanks to a new subscription option with montly payments.
While the only offer available so far called for a cash payment of 99.99 euros for six months of access, it is now possible to prefer an option at 19.99 euros per month.
- Nvidia GeForce Now RTX 3080 cloud gaming becomes more accessible
This new offer, obviously, is not an excellent deal in absolute terms: considered from the angle of the price/subscription time ratio, it even represents an increase of 20% compared to the half-yearly offer.
But since it comes with no commitment, it can be perfectly suited for those who would like to subscribe for only one or two months, the time to complete a particular game, or simply to try the service without spending too much money up front.
- Two words about the RTX 3080 formula
For the record, the RTX 3080 formula is the most high-end variant of the Nvidia GeForce Now cloud gaming service.
It is positioned above the free and the “priority access” formulas. It offers similar in-game performance to the RTX 3080, which gives it its name, as well as a video stream of up to 1440p at 120Hz, or 4K at 60Hz with HDR, depending on the gaming client used.
It benefits also from the latest architectural innovations developed by Nvidia for its servers, which allows it to offer extremely low latency, comparable to that of a PC or a local videogame console.
Finally, it is important to remember that the price of the subscription does not include access to any game: these must be acquired separately on the various supported PC game stores, such as Steam, Gog or the Epic Games Store, among others.
- Other features not to be missed
GeForce Now RTX 3080 is a class leader in the world of cloud gaming and it also shows it with a really good video compression, more convincing than some 4K images.
Even though the maximum bit rate (50 Mb/s) does not increase compared to the 1080p version of the service, the encoding remains sufficient to produce a very high quality image.
You will be amazed to see that, even in the middle of a fight, when the action is frenetic and the screen fills with particles swirling in all directions, the images will remain very sharp and clean.
