Just a brief overview of what is this Geforce Now (GFN) service is: It's a cloud computing service for gaming, which means the Nvidia data center will run your games at their facility and stream the video to your device(s). Compared to other known services (like Google's Stadia), this service is considerably beneficial for gamers already built a good steam/epic/uplay library. GFN can access your game library service and let you play where you left on. If you are interested there are multiple reviews on GFN and you can read on:
Currently, it supports PC, Mac, Android and Nvidia Shield (holding my iPhone )
But, with some tweaks and hacks (based on this Youtube Video[youtube.com]), here's my experience with GFN on my Nintendo Switch:
After some initial figuring out, I got my Nintendo Switch with an Android System (+ Nvidia Shield Identifier). Man, this Geforce Now just completely changed my switch to a whole new level. I can now play most of my steam games on my Switch, with the maximum setting, little to none lags. I don't even need a powerful PC to run the games locally. If you have played any big titles on Switch in portable mode, you know the visuals look like crap. But with GFN, everything is done in Nvidia data center, with the powerful Tesla P40 GPU. I can max out all the settings on Borderlands 3 and still get 85+FPS. And it looks great on the 720P screen.LMAO Not to mention the docked mode on TV looks amazing now.
Another benefit of running games on the cloud is less power consumption. If I run any games on my Switch portable, it only can last about 2-3 hours. Since GFN is basically a streaming service, most heavy lifting is actually not done on my Switch. I can get it run for 4~5 hours using GFN.
Granted, some games are not supported for GFN and even some supported ones may not be optimized for android. But if you check the Nvidia forum, they are constantly expanding the game library. As far as I can tell, it's much better compared to Google's stadia.
Personally, I think this + switch is probably the best thing and nothing can beat it as a (portable) console.
