It's good... very good.
It doesn't match the performance of a dedicated system, but for a streaming service, Nvidia got this right!
If you can't afford to drop $1000-1500 on a brand new system, but you can afford $5 per month, this is perfect.
Hell, the perfect use case for this: Some component dies in your system and you need to RMA it. If you don't have a spare CPU, GPU, RAM, motherboard, etc. lying around, this service will be a godsend.
Just played a round of Overwatch on the "Competitive" preset for Geforce NOW (720p, 120hz). It was most definitely visually degraded compared to my current setup (1440p, maxed, Gsync), but from a performance standpoint, it was spot on. Maybe 10-20ms latency on top of a local system, but it felt very responsive. I honestly, think the response on my non-gsync IPS monitor felt more sluggish, which means that Nvidia just worked some magic. Not only is Overwatch playable on Geforce NOW, it is downright enjoyable!
Stadia is dead. Long live GeforceNOW!
