The NVIDIA GeForce NOW game streaming service has received an update to stream games at 1600p on Google Chrome. Until then, the maximum that the platform supported in this scenario was the option of 1440p at 120 FPS.
With the change, any GeForce NOW RTX 3080 plan subscriber will be able to stream their PC games at up to 1600p and 120 FPS in a Chrome browser. It is worth mentioning that RTX 3080 members have access to 1600p/120 FPS or 2160p/60 FPS.
Even better, NVIDIA has worked with Google to support the newest Chromebooks, which are the first laptops custom-built for cloud gaming, with gorgeous 1600p resolution 120Hz+ displays. They come with a free three-month GeForce NOW RTX 3080 membership, the highest performance tier.

The Chromebooks that receive the update include the Acer Chromebook 516 GE, the ASUS Chromebook Vibe CX55 Flip, and the Lenovo Ideapad Gaming Chromebook. They all include a high refresh rate, high-resolution displays, gaming keyboards, fast WiFi 6 connectivity, and immersive audio.
The RTX 3080 layer of NVIDIA’s GeForce Now streaming platform was released last year and provides AI upscaling via DLSS and a maximum 4K resolution streaming output at 60 FPS with HDR functionality.
