Nvidia on Thursday announced that its GeForce NOW cloud gaming service is gaining native support for Apple Silicon-powered Macs.
The update to the GeForce NOW macOS app brings native support for the Apple M1 chip. The update provides lower power consumption, faster app startup times and an “overall elevated GeForce NOW experience” on M1-based MacBooks, iMacs, and Mac Minis.
The upgrade brings additional benefits.
Members can now more easily discover new games to play in the app with the added Genre row at the bottom of the Games menu. Useful sorting options include the ability to see All Games available in specific regions and by device type, and multiple filters can help narrow down the list.
Finally, members can enjoy an improved Streaming Statistics Overlay that now includes server-side rendering frame rates. The overlay quickly toggles through Standard/Compact/Off using the hotkey Ctrl+N. Members can complete their whole log-in process on play.geforcenow.com within the same browser tab.
