GeForce Now Ultimate RTX 4080 Tier Tested

Nvidia’s GeForce now (opens in new tab) Your subscription game streaming service has been upgraded again. Existing users of the service on his previous RTX 3080 level will be automatically switched to the new GeForce Now Ultimate level. Pricing remains the same, $19.99 per month, or $99.99 for 6 months. We were able to test the new hardware to see how it handled the latest games. This naturally includes support for DLSS 3 with the Ada Lovelace architecture.

what’s the catch? Not if you’re already a GFN subscriber, but we’re trying to sort out what these upgrades mean for the other tiers. ), we know there were three classes of hardware:they are all similar to fast mobile However, although the exact specs vary, real 3080/2080/2060 GPUs running locally are generally faster.

Does the introduction of the 4080 tier phase out the lower 2060/1080 equivalents and shift everything down? Not sure, but one possibility. We know the RTX 4080 is one of the best graphics cards out there, despite the price hike. But how do the cloud variants compare?

Let’s start with streaming performance. I ran his five game tests of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, Far Cry 6, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Watch Dogs Legion on both a local RTX 4080 and a GeForce Now Ultimate RTX 4080. Real GPUs are not the same. , but there are no exact specs other than 24GB VRAM. I know cloud 4080 supports his DLSS 3 etc. It’s likely an unannounced data center variant of the AD102 chip instead of the AD103 used in the retail RTX 4080. .

All tests were done at 4K 120 fps on GFN and run on a Samsung Odyssey Neo G8 monitor (4K 240 Hz). We basically maxed out the game settings, including the ray tracing options, with DLSS quality mode enabled as needed. Unfortunately, games that use DLSS 3 frame generation don’t have built-in benchmarks, so we weren’t able to get performance metrics for those games.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is one of the games to report an “AMD Ryzen 16 Core” CPU with an “Nvidia Graphics Device” for the GPU. That’s pretty much the details I can glean about what his new RTX 4080 hardware requires, I tested it using the Ultra preset.

Performance at GFN was 105 fps, but on a Core i9-13900K test PC with a real RTX 4080 Founders Edition, it hits 98 fps. wait, seriously?Yes, GeForce Now is actually out Faster Better than the local RTX 4080 in this case, but not always. This particular game may be optimized for Ryzen CPUs instead of 13900K.
