NVIDIA Shield now allows you to play video games via online streaming

December 10, 2013 9:05 am0 comments

Through the NVIDIA GRID Cloud gaming beta service, you can play PC games in your console from the internet.

As you could see in our NVIDIA SHIELD review, the GameStream technology, a Streaming system that allows you to play PC games in your console via streaming (as long as your PC has an Nvidia card with Kepler GPU) is undoubtedly the most interesting feature. The gameplay experience and performance are truly amazing, without lag and all your games running in real time, not to mention the latest update now supports games at 1080p.

NVIDIA has now gone a step further by adding the GameStream compatibility to the NVIDIA Grid Cloud service, which means you can not only play PC games in your console but also play games from the Nvidia cloud via streaming.

Sadly this service (still in beta phase) is for now only available to SHIELD users in California, not to mention you have to meet certain requirements in order for the system to work properly. These are the requirements:

  • Having a correctly configured and updated Nvidia Shield, obviously
  • Installing the beta GRID app
  • Having a 10 Mbps Internet connection or faster
  • Having a 40 ms pin or less with the NVIDIA GRID Cloud Gaming serves located in San Jose, California.
  • Having a router compatible with NVIDIA GameStream and the 5 GHz band
