More Android smartphones, including the Galaxy S22 and OnePlus 9 Pro, will now support GeForce Now’s premium high frame rate streaming.
The ability to stream at 120 frames per second sets GeForce Now’s RTX 3080 tier apart from other game streaming providers. Even Stadia Pros’ 4K 60 frames per second streaming is outperformed by GeForce Now when combined with the recently released ability to stream in up to 4K on PC and Mac (albeit 120 frames per second is limited to 1440p). The GeForce Now RTX 3080 membership, however, is extremely expensive, costing either $19.99 per month or $99 for a six-month subscription.
To now, however, only a small number of Android devices, including the Google Pixel 6, Galaxy S20 and S21, and Asus ROG 5 series, have supported 120 FPS streaming. Nvidia is releasing this high frame rate streaming to a few other devices today as part of a larger suite of announcements . The Galaxy S22 series flagships, which were only recently released, are the most visible addition to GeForce Now. They are joined by Samsung’s two most recent foldables, the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3.
In addition to these Samsung phones, GeForce and OnePlus collaborated to upgrade the OnePlus 9 Pro’s streaming capabilities. It’s interesting that the OnePlus 10 Pro, which just just debuted in the United States, is not mentioned.
In any case, it’s fascinating to see how Nvidia continuously works to make GeForce Now better for its users, particularly those who purchase the expensive RTX 3080 tier.
