NVIDIA has announced that GeForce NOW, the cloud video game platform, is coming soon to Australia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. It will be possible thanks to the companies Pentanet, Turkcell and Zain KSA that, after joining the GeForce NOW Alliance, will be able to place NVIDIA RTX Servers in the ideal locations to ensure a low latency gaming experience in new territories.
The arrival of GeForce NOW in Australia, Turkey and Saudi Arabia coincides with the implementation of 5G technology, so NVIDIA cloud video games will be an opportunity for these telecommunications companies to show the value of their 5G infrastructure and their bandwidth to your customers.
The company Ericsson stated in the 2020 Mobility Report: “It is estimated that 15% of the population will have 5G coverage, the equivalent of more than 1 billion people.”
On the other hand, according to DFC Intelligence Reports, “There are more than 3 billion video game consumers in the world.”
Cloud gaming is at the intersection of these two trends, and GeForce NOW is the leading platform for PC gamers, delivering hundreds of games from NVIDIA data centers in North America and Europe.
The service includes support for real-time ray tracing in the most prominent titles of the moment, and allows them to be played on less powerful computers, Macs, Chromebooks and Android and iOS devices.
GeForce NOW also offers the world’s strongest telecommunications firms the opportunity to deliver high-quality, low-latency PC video games to virtually any device from the cloud. These partners are members of the GeForce NOW Alliance, an association of operators that use RTX Servers and NVIDIA cloud gaming software to expand and enhance cloud gaming globally.
New GeForce NOW Alliance members join a growing group of telecommunications experts, including: Softbank, KDDI, LG Uplus, Taiwan Mobile, and GFN.RU.
